|8 hours 30 min ago||I took advantage of it on two fronts||
One, I added two extra Club seats and two, I was offered more than the 8 per person maximum. So, I grabbed a couple more in the bow as well. Here's why I upgraded and bought more. Having the chance to improve your seating for the same ticket price is pretty easy this year and the PSD is tax deductible. The schedule also gets better after this year and I would imagine our team will as well. The schedules from 2015 - 2022 are looking pretty good to me. We have dropped the directional Michigan and MAC teams for some teams like Arkansas, BYU, UCLA, Va Tech, SMU and Oregon St etc. Personally, if you get a chance to upgrade in a down year you always have the option to keep them in the future or revert back to a lower tier when you can no longer afford or want what you have now.

They stopped sending out snail mail reminders. Email notifications are the new way of doing business. Make sure you set up your MGOBLUE notifications and that will help too. I have a lot of friends that have experienced what you went through this year. There is a grace period so, you should be fine.

The current contract runs through 2016 and is valued at nearly 8.2 million. Now, would I like to see it? YES! Under Armour or Nike please.
|3 days 1 hour ago||I would have to respectfully disagree||
If anything, ticket prices would go down before the removal of PSD's. The loophole is that PSD's are not shared with the B1G. That is all Michigan profit and to pay whatever bills we have for facilities etc. Whereas, gate receipts from ticket sales are shared with the other conference members. Now, we all know that ticket prices nor PSD's will never truly go down. Therefore, we will likely see a leveling off of the ticket/PSD prices for several years before we see a decrease in pricing.
|3 days 2 hours ago||Ticket sales off by 8%||
After I renewed my season tickets this year I contacted the Athletic Development Office and specifically asked what the renewal rates were compared to last year. Whether or not you view it as half full or half empty, the 8% difference from a year ago is down about 8,792 seats. Then there was the student renewal discussion which amounted to about another 1,200 - 1,500 seat renewal drop off. I know some of these will be picked up by new buyers but, I doubt they all go to new buyers. I think we will see the return of the ticket packs. Losing roughly 10,000 fans at the Big House is going to be very noticeable unless the AD gets creative. Having said that, I still think we see a sellout for most every game. I am hoping it is not as bad as it sounds.

Completely unbiased too. Michigan, MSU, Wisky. Championships take priority over the Wisky Final 4.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||You read my mind.....||
I laughed when I saw that too.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Good catch! Thanks.....||
Hate it though! When does the numbering system end? After UTL 69?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I stand corrected! Damn it!||
|2 weeks 3 days ago||They dropped the numbering of UTL.....||
So far, no press release from Michigan has called this UTL III. Like another poster said. "don't turn this into Wrestlemania #3 and Marshall Mathers BS.

We shall see Sunday night.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||For once........||
Glass half full going into the BTT. I am taking Michigan over Wisconsin in the final. MSU will not get by Iowa and Wisconsin. OSU will be too tired to beat us if they win Thurs and then Friday against a stout Nebraska team. I like our chances!
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Highly likely we are 13th||
Outside chance of 11th or 12th.
|8 weeks 6 hours ago||I would agree||
We don't have any wiggle room right now. We to win these two and take 1 from Minny.

|10 weeks 5 days ago||That should slam the door shut!!||
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I saw that too||
We needed Minny to drop a couple. I figured it would be a close race between Minny, Wisky and UM for the B1G title.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||That would be great! Thanks!||
I have been extremely pleased with these reports! Well done! I just started getting these this year as I just started donating to UM Hockey.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||It'd early, but you have some very good assumptions||
Right now I have Wisky, MSU, Iowa, OSU, Mich and after that a mess.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Thx||
I screwed up the link and just caught it when I read your post. Regarding your question, the ACC would be in favor of no more divisions if the NCAA lifted title game restictions. The title game restictions in place now state that you must have equal divisions and division winners play for the conference title. Swofford is in favor of dropping that system and letting his conference determine who is represented in the title game without divisional structure. He also states that it will give him more scheduling flexibility.

That will hurt them!
|15 weeks 7 hours ago||Yes,||
I thought it was a great hire. It energizes the fan base, There was a lot of doom and gloom. Now we have positive momentum heading into next season and Michigan is back in the news in a positive light. It has to be a positive for recruiting too. It will be nice to see some cohesion in the game plan along with an identity.

Let's get some momentum and run em out in the third!

He would be an excellent play-by-play guy. I know he graduated from MSU, but he is a die hard Wolverine.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||Go Blue!!||
Looking forward to this one!
P.S. Not a bad tournament in Pittsburgh either. Robert Morris, BC, PSU, and Bowling Green.
