Anticipating my most favoritist ufr of all time.
No need to get into last Saturday's events - just give us your prediction for when Tate will take his first snap of the season.
I'm going with 3Q vs. ND.
Posted this Monday on the ticket thread, no response. Could be no one is interested, could be people near Novi who may be interested don't cruise the ticket thread.
Monday September 13, at the Rock Financial Showplace in Novi, the 54th Hall of Fame class will be inducted. Inductees include: Ricky Leach!, Steve Fraser!, Coach Urbanchek, Marian Illitch, George Blaha, Bill Fleming, Herman Moore, Eddie Murray (Lion K, not Oriole), Peter Kamanos, Meg Mallon, Jack Roush and Bob Becker.
I have two General Admission, Ceremony Only tickets. Face value $50 each. I'm asking for NOTHING in return. Ceremony begins at 7:30 pm (arrive no sooner than 6:45 - though if you want to tailgate in the parking lot, come as early as you like).
I can't go and will send them via US post to anyone who will use them. If I send them today they should arrive by Friday, Saturday at the latest. Don't let these tickets die a slow death in my office drawer. Support Rick Leach! Please include some type of contact info if you want the tix.
So my daughter is a senior in HS, and just got a recruiting postcard from Indiana offering a pair of free tickets to one of three games, including Michigan. We filled out the form online, and now have a ticket to the game for both of us. It includes a IU sponsored tailgate as well.
Catch: you obviously will have to sit through a recruiting spiel, and you have to know someone who IU wants to recruit as a student. But the "guest" coming along can be anyone. So if you have a younger brother or sister, or a son or a daughter who's a HS senior, and you live within driving distance, this is a cheap (free!) way to get a pair of tickets to the Michigan - Indiana game, and a meal to boot. Smacks of a timeshare sales pitch, but I can live with that. It's bonding time with my daughter, after all.
Just spent the better part of an hour embarrassing the Domers in my office by playing some Freakbass on loop. Nobody wants to take ownership of that piece of trash, they claim it was a random fan until I point out the production value as well as the participation of Kelly, Golic, Swarbrick and what seems to be the university at large.
The local SEC homer is now wandering the office rapping and doing that fey jig of theirs. Very entertaining stuff. Returning to Glory my friends...returning to glory.
Re. the "You Suck!" at the end of the 3rd down stop version of Temptation, can we please please please stop it?
It's seriously trashy and classless, totally unbefitting the caliber of institution that Michigan is. Maybe a difference in the way they are mic'ing crowd noise this year, but I noticed it more prominently than usual during the game on Saturday, and am noticing it a lot as I watch the game again right now.
I don't know if this is exclusively a student section thing or the whole stadium saying it. But, whoever it is, stop. You're embarrassing yourselves and Michigan. Come up with something more clever / less trashy.
As the absurdly synoptic headline indicates, UM/MSU single game tickets are being sold at www.mgoblue.com - Here's the trick to get tickets together:
1. Open two different browsers (diff programs)
2. Navigate both to mgoblue
3. Select MSU game
4. Enter "1" for tickets desired
5. Do not click "Best Available" or a section. Select a specific section
In honesty it might take you some tries to find out what sections have back-to-back or parallel seats. I was able to secure Section 8, Row # and Row #+1, Seat 11 through this method. $75/pop is better than whatever exorbitant rate they're going to be going for if both teams come out swinging these next couple weeks.
