I am very proud of my alma mater for taking a stand!
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Selling my 2 Tickets||
I don't have the section/row yet. The tickets should be in hand in the next week or so. Bought them during the pre-order from athletic department. In Michigan section. $120 each ($240 total) which is what I paid.
Send me an e-mail at [email protected] if interested.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||$240 for the pair||
Not sure where they are located in the stadium. But they will be in the Michigan Section as I ordered them through the Athletic Department.
I should get the tickets in the mail in the next 10 days or so. Shoot me an e-mail at [email protected] and we can work logisitcs.
Between you and SARTO1G , whomever will commit to the tickets first will get them.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||$95-$140||
Which is the range the Athletic Dept gave when we were asked to order them. Whatever they charge me is what I will ask from the fine folks at MGoBlog.
I guess there is an outside chance I will not get them as availability was based on priority points, but I think I should.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Sell you mine at face!||
I ordered tickets thru UM and I cannot go. Happily sell them to you for face value. Let me know.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Father/Son Camp - Great!!||
I attended the Father/Son Camp last year with my then 8 year old. It was an awesome experience. A little light on the basketball skills development. It was skewed more towards fun and games and fostering a love of the game. And a love of Michigan Basketball of course. Very well run, very well organized. Beilein was there every day. Tremendous access to the players and facility. Highly recommend it. I would do it again this year if the dates had worked out.
As for the 1/2 day camp which my son did last year as well. The same critique applies. The camp was a little light on the skills development and more skewed towards fostering a love of the game.
If you and your son are Michigan basketball fans I cannot think of a cooler thing to do than the Father / Son camp.

Gorilla Run. Halloween costume set for the next five years plus.
|4 years 43 weeks ago||OMG!!||
How is the Michigan Stadium and Ann Arbor Infrasturcture going to be able to handle all the Canadians coming across the border for the Winter Classic? Didn't anyone know its going to be cold January 1! And the throngs of media for that game. How will the stadium handle it?
Ann Arbor is doomed!
|4 years 43 weeks ago||Simple math||
Yes, very rough math assuming 25K students out of 100,000 total fans. As you said the overarching point is Michigan has 75K or more people coming in from outside the AA borders to attend a game. The same thing happens on every single campus of every single major player in college football. The infrastructure argument holds no water.
|4 years 43 weeks ago||I disagree completely||
Of the 75,000 non-students who attend a Michigan home game, 65,000 or more live outside Ann Arbor. The city has no problems handling that number of people coming from outside the city. A playoff home game would see very little difference from a Michigan - Ohio game. People drive in, park, tailgate and drive out. People travelling from out of state find rooms in Ann Arbor, Plymouth, Brighton, etc. Drive in, park, tailgate, drive out. People who have RV's do the same. They drive in the night before like always, park tailgate, go home.
This happens every Saturday in the fall in college towns across the United States. People are now trying to create issues where there are none.
|4 years 43 weeks ago||Serious?||
Not trying to be rude, but are you serious? An NFL Stadium, take the Super Dome or Georgia Dome, Joe Robbie Stadium or Univ. of Phoenix Stadium, is even less equipped to handle the "colossal draw of humanity," all showing up in RV's.
Have you been to a SEC game where 1/4 of the fans show up in RV's. Or a Penn State or any big time college stadium? This argument is nearly as laughable as Hancocks!
|4 years 43 weeks ago||Idiots||
So, it appears that Hancock has not been to a big time college football game in a while. Let's take Michigan - Notre Dame from this past year or Michigan - Ohio from 2006.. You're telling me that there will be more media attending those games than a National Semi-Final? Maybe a handful.
As for fans, if he would walk around a campus he would easily see that for the 100,000 fans inside the stadium, there are another 25,000 outside without tickets tailgating, watching at bars, etc. Infrastructure. Laughable.
The real reason is cold weather and money. Southern teams / conferences don't want to entertain the thought of playing at Michigan Stadium or the Horseshoe in December. Also, the power brokers are looking at having a windfall of money by having sites bid on the games while charging $300 plus per ticket for the semi-finals and probably a Super Bowl-esque $500+ for the National Championship.
That is absurd. It will lead to less than optimal attendance at the semi-final games and the less affluent fans will save their money and only travel to the Championship game.

Hide the women and children!!! Urban Meyer and Mike Stoops are coming!!! We're doomed!!!
|5 years 12 weeks ago||RVB||
RVB = ladies man.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Bring it!||
OSU. You want Urban Meyer as coach. Fine. Bring it. I ain't afraid of him or anyone he puts on his staff.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||Wow||
Is that a shoddily written report. The Detroit Lions are no closer to being on the verge of financial collapse as Mark D'antonio is on the verge of being a classy individual.
An NFL franchise is a medium to print money. I doubt the writer of the story took into consdieration all the various revenue streams for an NFL team. In fact most teams can be profitable without selling a single ticket. The only area where the Lions are not maximizing revenue is in the sale of Club seats and Suites. The purchase of those is directly coorelated to winning.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||Northville||
Barnes and Noble in Northville had 20 or so copies left as of 1pm. But they were selling fast. Even the clerks were a little befudled as to the popularity of a book they had never heard of.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||FYI, they were nearly sold||
FYI, they were nearly sold out of Three and Out at the Barnes and Noble in Northville. The clerks were very confused over why this book was flying off the shelves.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||My money||
Is on NC State with a close 2nd to Ole Miss.

Wayne State Tatars: 24
|5 years 22 weeks ago||The Big Ten ain't expanding||
Unless it is Notre Dame or Texas. There is no need otherwise. Those are the only two schools out there that will increase the revenue each Big Ten school currently receives.
|5 years 22 weeks ago||If the 2 sources above don't work.||
I've got two in Sec. 7. $100. [email protected]
|5 years 23 weeks ago||5-years old||
5-years old and older. I've taken my son to a number of games from birth on. He is now 6. Last year was the first year he was able to sit through the majority of the game and have it be enjoyable for both of us.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||Wayne State||
I immediately thought they were patterned after the Wayne State Tartars!
|5 years 24 weeks ago||Bitch & Moan||
If Michigan were a Nike school, people would bitch and moan about their quality too.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Handicap seats||
Trade those tickets for 2 in the handicap seats. You can do that through the ticket office.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||Group D||
Could that be renamed Group of Death, meaning is death an option? I hate all those teams!
|5 years 26 weeks ago||Newcastle||
I would add Newcastle to the list as they are a competitve club, though they have not challenged for the title in a few years.
As an Arsenal supporter as well, this has been a supremely difficult offseason. At some point they have to stop being a feeder club and bring in some talent in their prime, much like they did with Bergkamp and Henry. Which also saw them winning trophies.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||It's hard to say who to root for||
as usually there has to be some personal connection. For example, I support Arsenal because when I was over in London in 1996, I was able to go to a game at Highbury, their old stadium. After that experience I was hooked.
My suggestion would be to go to Wikipedia and start reading up on teams that are in the EPL and see which ones suit your fancy.
Two teams that you may want look at would be Fulham and Everton as they both have Americans playing key roles in Clint Dempsey and Tim Howard respectively.
