Did season tickets arrive today?

Submitted by goblueram on July 23rd, 2014 at 10:26 AM

I've been waiting with bated breath.  After the past few days, I figured it would be another big day today!  


Some serious questions since I'm here:

-Any info on when the 3 game packs go out for us suckers who bought them?

-What away games are you good people attending?  Any sweet road trips planned?  I've got ND and NW, which are easy to do from Chicago.  


38 days, folks!

Definitely go to one!  Road games have always been my favorite (though that's changing while not living in Michigan and not attending all home games).  There's something great about being the minority of fans and cheering with fellow M fans who quickly become your new friends.  

I've been lucky enough to do some awesome road trips (and some reckless ones in college) and would highly recommend getting to an away game!

The campus and surrounding area is really nice, it's right on Lake Michigan, and you can see Chicago on the same trip.  Also, the stadium is smaller so you're a little closer to the sidelines and field.  The NW fans are also pretty laid back as you'd expect and don't abuse visiting fans like some other places in the B10.

The mailman just dropped of my tickets...which pretty much makes this the best day of the month for me (I know, sad)!!  As for away games, ND and NW are both on the agenda.  Can't wait for the season to start.

Post pics of your table cloth or it didn't happen.

Since I work weekends I can't get to many games this year (low man in my company and I have to come in on Saturdays). I only have tix for Penn State. I bought them off eBay so hopefully the guy mails them to me soon.

once in the '70's to see my oldest brother play them, once in the '80's to see all our friends play them, and watch AC run a punt back and hand us the ball.    the ND fans were fine then, but things change.

saw mich pound IU down in bloomington in the '80's too.   nice fans, no problems.   it was the first time i heard a fan base yell 'I-U-D' when we had the ball.  i giggled like a school kid.

been to evanston to see NW play, but not against michigan.  low-key, decent small stadium, and i always root for the cats as long as they aren't playing our wolverines. 

now if you want to talk hockey venues, that is a different matter.  i will say playing in columbus wasn't that big of a deal, and i will confirm a prior post that i always thought munn (MSU"s arena) had the best ice besides ours.

Nope but I've heard that M jerseys are selling like hot cakes in Ohio. Also there's been some nasty business between a former coach in the state of Texas and five hookers. Allegedly.

along with season tickets to another cultural event.  There were about $2500 worth of tickets sitting in my mailbox yesterday.  Thankfully I live in a nice neighborhood, but it was a revelation.

More importantly, who's turn is it tomorrow to post a thread regarding season ticketing arriving? Then we need someone else to ask about the ticket packs.

We need to ensure that we have our resources scheduled accordingly.

And I'm really not too concerned about it given the crap schedule. I'm trying to get hyped for the opener, but I just can't yet. Normally at this point in the summer, I'd be in full countdown mode. Anyone else feel the same way?
