I'll be there. Hoping to find a fun party without the expensiveness and preteniousness.

I'll be there. Hoping to find a good place to watch the USMNT in the Hex the night before. Not sure about tailgating, we have heard that the apartment complex we are AirBnb'ing at has people tailgating at it but I might prefer going to a more populated lot.
How about the "no liquor at university lots" rule, though? That's an obstacle.

I agree with each of your points but don't think this development actually accomplishes any of them.
1. When the executive board of the organization is hand-picked by the AD (as is the case here), the AD is the one governing the students.
2. The student advisory committee was already formed to give students a voice in that manner. This isn't the section creating the "voice", this is the "voice" creating the section with the AD's help.
3. Kind of already addressed it, but I don't think this organization is good for the students' control over their section.

I take issue with "Michigan students working to..." when the football student advisory council is a group of students hand-picked by the AD. Student sections should be meritocracies that work on their own, not opportunities for the AD to exert control over the entire experience.

Have you actually heard that from band people?
These are college students we're talking about. If they nix that, something worse will spring up in its place. Hockey student section has been doing the cya chant for years despite the band throwing the kitchen sink at trying to get rid of it.

906 Class of 2011 right here. Lived in the third floor side room without the sink.
I had no idea that the house had that kind of network here.

The stadium lots are sold out. We got passes at a nearby lot for $44 and they allow tailgating.

My worry with the Chinese ones is that the M looks much lower than it is on the real jersey.

What size is it and how much would you be looking for it?

Hmm...is it authentic or replica? And what would you be looking for it?

Depends on the size and how much you're looking for it I guess.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Do you have a picture of your||
Do you have a picture of your jersey? I've bought soccer jerseys in the past from these sites and I appreciate those, but feel like a high quality football jersey is much much much harder to pull off. From looking at the pictures a lot of those places supply, it looks like a lot of details are off like the M is way too big or way too small, or the adidas logo isn't there, or the jersey fabric looks really off.

I definitely took a look at China/Thailand/etc and the jerseys don't look very good, all of the stuff on the front is consistently the wrong size and the material looks awful.

There was a parking lot across the street.

Got tickets in the student section, so I didn't experience any of the ticket problems that you guys are talking about.
We stayed in Ybor City. Despite every Tampa local telling us to avoid it and saying that it was sketchy, we liked staying there and never had a single problem.
Ybor was kind of strange--on the weekends the bars and clubs were packed to the gills like it was Bourbon Street, but during the weekdays there would only be 4 or so people in each bar, even on the night after the game. The trolley system was very convenient so we spent some time in Channelside and Downtown as well, but it was kind of unfortunate that there wasn't a central nightlife area to find bowl fans. I suppose the metro area is so big that lots of people stay outside of the immediate city.
One beef I had with Tampa is that we spent midnight on NYE downtown watching the fireworks, and then afterward it was literally impossible to get back to Ybor for bars/clubs because the trolley stopped running shortly after midnight and every cab in the city was booked. As a result we didn't really get to party because it took us 2 hours to find a cab and there were barely any bars open downtown.
I disagree with people saying that the stadium situation sucked. From Ybor it was only a 15 minute or so drive without bad traffic, and we found a parking lot to tailgate in for $10 or so just a ten-minute walk from the stadium.Leaving the stadium we were able to take a sidestreet so we didn't run into any traffic there either. Atmosphere at the game was kind of lame--especially in the student section--but I wasn't really expecting something crazy for a mid-tier bowl.

Walk to the graves, smash buckeyes, some stories might be told but it's a relatively brief affair. No official u involvement. Attendance widely varies based on the importance of the game (HBO sent a crew to film it in 06) but I'd guess 20-40 is a good range to expect.

Horray! I'm slightly internet famous!

You've never heard of the US Open Cup? I wish more American soccer fans actually paid attention to American soccer...
In any case, a non-MLS team hasn't won the Cup since 1999 so I'm pretty happy for the Bucks to have beaten an MLS side.

I was at Pat's earlier tonight along with what seemed like every other Michigan fan in New Orleans. You couldn't walk two feet without running into somebody that you knew.

How do we know that the announcement is actually happening? I'd expect a credible news source (TomVH, Rothstein, Brian, etc.) to say something about it, but the only people talking about it are on forums like this one and we're hardly a credible source.

This is being overblown. The Fiesta Bowl rep was there because he's also the Insight Bowl rep. Men from all of the top B1G bowls were there yesterday, excepting the Rose Bowl.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||Look, I don't know Mark||
Look, I don't know Mark Madden's track record with things like this but this really sounds like irresponsible journalism to me. I'm not saying that it can't be true, but there's a reason why real media outlets (Brian included) don't publicize rumors, even with disclaimers included.
Publishing sensational rumors without sourcing or evidence is flat-out dangerous and it disgusts me that they're throwing out these allegations for the public to eat up while still trying to cover their asses in case they're wrong
Journalism 101: if you're not confident enough in your sources or evidence to publish it without the "rumor" disclaimer, don't publish it in the first place. Every outlet latching onto this rumor is being wildly irresponsible.
