Best section at the Big House?

Submitted by B Edwards 17 on May 30th, 2010 at 9:24 PM

Hey guys, I'm 18 and looking to go to my first Michigan game this fall. I was just wondering if you guys could tell me some of the good sections at the Big House to make my first experience a great one. Thanks and Go Blue!

The student sections are the best, however, I prefer 26-28, when you are in the lower rows, because of the marching band.

In the student section, everything's better.

* Everybody's inebriated. As a result, everybody's friendly.

* In 2010, only a quarter of the remaining kids will have seen any of Lloyd's teams, and even then Oregon, Appalachian State, and Ohio State were three of the home games they saw that year. So the fans in the student section don't yell, 'We want Lloyd back' as frequently as they used to (ca. 2008).

* You can stand when your team's on the field and nobody will be bummed out.

* The drunker students leave early, so you can move down pretty easily after the first half.

old alumni section, you stand up the entire game. People love that spirit!

Oh yeah, and don't throw bottles at fans who may be booing poor play. Unless you have plans to become an internet millionaire with a well researched blog on Michigan sports.

last year i was at a game about 5 rows up from the the alumni section.  I felt bad because there was a family with 4 young kids right behind the alumni section, and because everyone was standing in front of them, the kids didnt see a minute of the game.  The dad asked several times to get everyone to sit, but that didnt work at all.

on the same topic, the alumni must also think they were still in college as i seen several of them cracked out the flasks during the game which i thought was funny

I got lucky last year when I attended my first two games. I was sitting next to people that didn't care that I stood the whole game and they didn't complain about everything like the old alumni.

This is an all-other-things-equal kind of remark.  I'd recommend giving careful consideration to the weather.  If you'll be attending a warm-weather game, try to avoid sections (roughly, those in the northeast quadrant) in direct sunlight.  You will b-a-k-e in those areas if the temperature is north of 75F.  (If it's south of 40F you might be happy.)  That's one reason I'd give the south endzone seats a good mark.  Good lighting, too, since it will be at your back.

There isn't a bad place to see the game, however, you need to sit somewhere where the people won't yell at you to sit down the whole game.  For some reason, I always seem to be in a section full of these people.
