DO NOT let this shit happen again:


If you have tickets to The Game:  

  1. Go to The Game and support your team,
  2. Use the MGoBoard ticket spreadsheet, or
  3. If you are a member of the UM Alumni Association, use their new ticket exchange:

We have 99% of the tickets, don't be the traitor who supports the enemy to make a quick buck.  It is not worth it.  Every M fan in the stadium makes a positive difference and every ohio fan makes a big negative difference.  Only you can prevent this.  

And how many times have we ruined their hopes with a great upset?  Why not witness another one?

The Seniors and Juniors on Team 134 deserve and need our support for their last game at Michigan Stadium versus ohio.  Don't let them down.

I couldn't agree more. I do, tend to disagree that EVERY Michigan fan makes a positive difference because I have sat next to many a fan that do nothing the entire game but watch. I really wish we had a more rowdy fan base. Seems like the two UTL games produced a much "better" crowd in terms of noise and effect on the opposition. Obviously there are some factors (alcohol + more time - old people) that play into it but I'd like to see our crowd have a huge impact on games.

I wish our 12th man was Seattle Seahawks worthy, or texas A&M where everyone takes pride in being super loud.

We have terrific fans. They just are not loud enough.

So as someone who has been a part of the 12th man in Seattle, the fans are not great people.  Sure they're loud as fuck (seriously), but they're huge d-bags.  They fight (as in unprovoked fisticuffs) for no reason other than wearing the wrong color.  Seriously, I saw a fight go down during the second half of an PRESEASON game when the Hawks were up 30.  Who fights in those situations?  Honestly, they're like Ohio fans.


Does it look good and sound good?  Sure.  But do you really want the Michigan stadium crowd to get the same reputation as an Ohio type crowd, personality and hospitality-wise?  Do you want people to come to Ann Arbor, watch a game, fear for their lives, and then leave, thinking all the while that they are better off for being able to leave the anus of the universe?


Me neither.  Let's not sell our souls for some noise.

Was awful.  Tried to leave a few minutes early because I felt sick listening to it, but couldn't get out up the stairs because too many other people had the same idea.

Thank you students for not being the cause of this. And thank you students for not selling your tickets to Nebraska fans. And thank you students for ruining ohio's chant at the big house. Since our alumnis sat there and did nothing or sold their ticks to a Jalen rose "fuckeye"

I take it, from what I make of your barely-literate post, that you somehow blame alumni (that is already a plural, sport; no need to add an 's' to make it plural) for the appearance of Michigan Stadium during the 2009 OSU game. You seem to think it was all due to faithless "alumnis" who sold their tickets to OSU fans.

I don't know where you got that idea. You probably just made it up. It isn't true. You are wrong.

The fact is that in 2009, the Michigan Athletic Department was in the midst of a large ticket-banking program; preparing for the wholesale seat re-numbering and aisle-widening projects in connection with the Stadium renovation. Thousands of banked tickets which could not be sold as regular subscrption season tickets were instead sold as package, single-game or special temporary season tickets. Those tickets were snapped up by brokers and resold on the open market.

This story -- the true background on the '09 game -- has been explored many times at MGoBlog, by myself among others. You apparently weren't paying attention. That scene from the '09 game was not repeated in 2011. Not because the '09 team sucked and the '11 team was great. Rather, it was because the reconfiguration of the main bowl had been completed for the 2010 seaon and by '11 settled into permanent season ticket subscriptions.

Before you go off acting snotty again in the future, I suggest that you make certain you know what you are talking about.

It's so tiresome to have people trot out the 2009 game as "proof" that selling your ticket automatically allows the rival to overwhelmingly invade your home field.  Tickets up for sale get bought up just as much by home fans as away fans., and even if the rival fans scoop up a percentage higher than 50% of the 4000 or so tickets floating around for sale, it's not like they're all going to be concentrated in one section of the stadium where they will feel comfortable being obnoxious.  I've been to many an Ohio State game and there is always a couple of Buckeye fans sprinkled around my section, and they pretty much keep quiet.

You don't want Ohio fans making hay in your stadium?  Stand up and cheer louder than them.  There will be more of us than there will be of them.  I guarantee it.

Note to coaches:  You can assist in this effort by exceeding expectations and having the team be competitive in this game.

If you like Michigan football enough to have season tickets, why would you sell off the biggest home game of the season? Especially since most of them end up in the hands of Bucknuts. You don't see similar seas of Maize in their stadium on away years, in fact the whole thing is red

I just hope it's not already too late.

The back-to-back losses to MSU and Nebraska may have caused some fair-weather fans to ticket dump for cash without much thought to what happened back in 2009 game.

If I wasn't already visiting family that weekend I'd definitely go. Would love to go to a UM-Ohio game.

I was up to about 300 when I accidentally double posted the Ace Williams "transfergate" article pretty much simultaneously with someone else a few weeks ago...that’s when the bomb was dropped.

In all honesty the thought of selling them on here didn't even occur to me at the time, I will certainly remember in the future.

Wouldn't drive from Chelsea to see the same plays that have driven me nuts since the PSU game.  Shoot, I was predicting the plays they would run and the number of yards they were going to lose in the 4th quarter of the Nebraska game.  Totally unacceptable.  Major issues way beyond OL and QB.  We're talking major division and turmoil on this team, and Hoke doesn't know what to do about it.  Serious, serious problems.  Listening to Hoke on the pre-game show before the NU game, he's delusional.  I've never seen a team do the things this team is doing.  Week after week, and no change.  It's the most insane thing I've seen in Michigan football since richrod's defenses.  And I've been following M football for almost 50 years.


November 20th, 2013 at 11:42 AM ^

So I need to research my potential buyers?  Ok...I've got a pair of tickets in Sec 42, Row 46 (non-student...they're my season ticket seats) as I can't make THE GAME.  The spreadsheet got mostly deleted it seems.  If your screen name is WoodyTastesLikeCandy or PromoteTressel or HeartSpeilmanForever, I won't sell to you.

Fortunately, Thanksgiving is actually on Thanksgiving this year, so with my Saturday now clear and without any need for me to explain my way out of family events (wife's family couldn't care less about football, which is a bone of contention around this time of the year), I will be cheering on the Wolverines barring catastrophe.
