Alabama column on how Delany's words will be used as motivation against Michigan

Submitted by Leaders And Best on May 11th, 2012 at 9:35 AM

Alabama columnist on how Jim Delany's statement about how future playoff teams should be selected (includes a shot at Alabama's team last year)  will work as motivation for Alabama against Michigan.  Things I had forgotten from last year: Alabama played at Penn State.  Although Penn State was outclassed, they may have played Alabama tougher than any other team on their schedule not named LSU, especially on defense (something not mentioned in the column).

While it is very early in the process, i am looking to secure group rate airfare (usually a nice savings) for the cowboy classic. Group rate is 10 or more persons traveling from the same airports on the same dates and times. I am waiting on quotes from several different airlines and wanted to gauge interest. If anyone here is interested please let me know. Details below: Traveling from Detroit on August 31st to Dallas/Forth Worth Returning via the same airports on Sept 2nd. This is just airfare so any other accomodations are your choice. Contact info: [email protected] Thanks alot and Go Blue!

Well, that was quick...

 

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Due to an extremely high level of demand, the University of Michigan Athletic Ticket Office announced today (Tuesday, Feb. 7) that the University's allotment of tickets to the Cowboys Classic against Alabama is sold out. Michigan received just less than 25,000 tickets for the football team's 2012 season opener and sold out before a public sale could take place.

"We have received unprecedented interest in tickets for the Cowboys Classic game with Alabama," said chief marketing officer Hunter Lochmann. "The demand is on par or greater than our athletic department has ever seen."

If the athletic department receives standing room tickets, those will be offered in the following order:

  1. Victors Club members with 1-49 priority points without previous Cowboys Classic orders
  2. Michigan football season ticket holders with no priority points
  3. General public

Standing room ticket availability will not be known until late April. All individuals within the aforementioned groups will receive M-mail communication if and when standing room only tickets become available.

Cowboys Classic Selling out

Cowboys Classic Selling out

As of this morning both the $285 price level and the $175 price level are sold out and it hasn't even gotten to the point where the grads can get tickets yet... http://www.mgoblue.com/tickets/fbl-cowboys-classic.html Anyone have any thoughts on this one? I really wanted some $175's and was hoping they would stick around long enough that a UM grad friend of mine could get me a couple but now those are gone. Should I just bite the bullet and get the $125's or might there be some after-market deals that aren't *too* bad?
