Your title asks if it is a dead business model, not if others think the same way. Yes, there should be an increase in sales, but not sold out season tickets if the business model is dying. Seriously, go back and read your own post.
|23 hours 31 min ago||Ridiculous thread||
To say the business model is dying when they just had a huge increase in season tickets is crazy. Also, your entire alternative of buying on stubhub is dependent on season ticket holders as they are the vast majority of sellers. Just because it meets your needs does not mean there is a big change coming. Let's put some thought in before posting.
|23 hours 40 min ago||That and||
That and I don't think one student can buy two student tickets. This plan has so many faults, it's hard to count them all.
|1 day 19 hours ago||You didn't understand the policy||
The policy was never that they would lose their offer, it was that they would not be considered a commit. Essentially, Hoke was not saving them a spot if they were looking around. Thus non of your examples qualify.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Name one.||
Until the very end, this never happened
|1 week 3 days ago||The degree may not be what you think||
I have seen several say how valuable the Michigan degree is to these players, but I would be careful with that assumption.
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||Harbaugh||
And I would have said the same thing two years ago.
|2 weeks 20 hours ago||Verizon||
I recently went through the same thing. I decided on Verizon Fios, I get all the sports channels but not not much else besides the networks and AMC. This, along with 75/75 internet costs me just under $100 a month. About half what I was paying on directv and Internet before, though I was getting far more channels.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Why QB||
I think it is crazy how these kids continue to be used at QB. He has no future at QB. Why is he not being moved to Arab or Anwar for his own sake. This happens in college all too often, coaches need to do what is right for the athletes.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||That would suck||
I am not really anti-neutral site, but a game on the infield of a race track would suck.
|3 weeks 3 hours ago||Nike attack on Adidas||
The Wall Street journal seemed to indicate that Nike is going after Adidas' big contracts. Michigan's deal may be as much about hurting a competitor as it is about getting Michigan.
|3 weeks 3 hours ago||Length of contract||
How does the length of contract impact this price and compare to others. Michigan's contract goes through 2027 with an option through 2031. If this report is true, is this a contract that looks great now but in the second half of the contract looks more mediocre?
|3 weeks 16 hours ago||Agreed||
This is a normal meeting and I am sure Herman got similar feedback. It's highly unlikely that this was a one sided conversation.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Agreed||
We've seen these rumors for months now. I will believe it when it is announced.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||This is the norm||
Most great athletes fall off the cliff suddenly. Especially pitchers. There are certainly exceptions, but they are exceptions.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Plus minus is deceiving||
A huge chunk of that is because of the power play, which he would skate the entire time. Caps had a great powerplay and Green didn't spend much time on the penalty kill for obvious reasons. He is worse in defense than ESPN is saying.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I am a big Caps fan||
Green is not worth that amount of money. He is a good offensive defenseman and great on the power play. But he is a huge liability on defense and often seems to forget he is not a forward.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Simple||
Because than a coach may push a player onto the field that has no business being there. If Pipkins has had concussion issues, and we know he has, it may very well be in his best interest to take a medical redshirt.
|5 weeks 7 hours ago||Matthew McConaughey||
He had just won an Oscar for the very non rom com Dallas Buyers Club before season 1 started. Let's give him a little credit.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||You need to go back and look at Nike gear in 2007,||
That is nowhere near the Color Nike used
|5 weeks 5 days ago||At Michigan, you mean||
He's coached quite a few downs in his career as it turns out.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||It conducts or sponsors||
If the satellite camps met the "conducts or sponsors" clause, than it would also be a recruiting violation. So I think he is safe.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Not new||
That quote comes straight from the website the patriots set up. Anyone who thought the Wells report was reliable is not great at critical thinking or has only read the headlines.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Bring back Inge!||
Bring him back
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Not all offers commitable||
Given what I have read about Harbaugh putting out all these offers, but not all of them being a commitable offer, I tend to think those commits he accepts must be from guys he has a lot of confidence in.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||What they need||
It's what the team needs, it's the one thing Hoke did not recruit well.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah||
Those last couple of can't miss five stars went great for us!
|6 weeks 6 days ago||He has to leave someday||
He won't coach forever
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Shoes?||
I suspect nobody in this board is thinking about shoes. We are thinking about things we can go the mden and buy with Michigan on it.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe||
But it could also mean that he has no chance of being a WR in the league.
