Michigan Football ticket secondary market is gonna be a melee

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on July 13th, 2017 at 9:04 AM

Single game tickets went on sale to all of us sub-75 point donors today.

  • OSU and MSU are completely sold out
  • Cincinnati, Rutgers(!) are down to single seats stranded
  • Air Force has seats together but they're in not ideal sections so basically throw that one onto the single seats list
  • Minnesota is the game with the highest number of seats left

Demand is crazy. Last year I was buying multiple seats for Penn State, Wisconsin, Indiana on MGoBlue week of.

Single game tickets go on sale to those who don't have any priority points tomorrow. Good luck.

Brace yourselves. Stubhub melees are coming. Get ready to get bent over in "service fees".

Minnesota game. 

4 tickets for the family - $340.00, Gas $40.00, Parking $30.00, Concessions $30.00(minimum), Dinner $50.00(minimum), Misc. $10.00(minimum).

Cost of attendance = $500.  Likely $600.

Just isn't happening.  I am die hard but the idea of going to more than one game every few years ended when my kids were born.  My dad took me to games when I was a kid and I think we got in and out of the stadium for $100.  Stinks that sporting events are very seldom family affairs anymore.  The good news is that I am becomming very knowledgeable about high school athletics in the area.  $20.00 for the family.

You come to our tailgate on Potter off Main in the first grass lot on the right and we'll feed you. We usually have leftovers.

Foods getting better and better. We made our own bdubs boneless wings last year that were better than the real thing.

their wings are better than average, and can actually be good to great with the right sauce choices.  It is their prices and atmosphere that kill it right now.  Why can't BW3s get better TVs?  The entire purpose of their business model is to attract sports fans for games, and they still have faded projection style TVs in their primary sections.  You also cannot get out of their for less than $50 even if you grab a couple of beers and a snack.  I got a tall Oberon and it was $9.00  Seriously.  $9.00?

The last couple of times I have been to a BW3s, there were big local sporting events on and it was a ghost town.  I think they can come back, and I would like them to, but they need to rethink a few things and really dedicate themselves to their concept again, and realize the economy is not what it was when they first opened.  People aren't going to spend $75 to go watch a game at a bar with garbage TVs.

Curious what is it you don't like? The flavors? How they cook them? What do you like better? A few years back they went to a larger wing -which we call yard bird- and that is when it started going down hill for me. Whenever I go now, I have them cook the wings 18 minutes, and the results are generally much better. They lost me at their pricing of everything. Way overpriced these days.

I'm with you...

BW3's is incredibly overrated. Their sauces have great variety and selection, but the actual chicken wing...the important part is SOOOOO inconsistent. And the prices are dumb. But I'd pay it if it wasn't like going through McDonald's at night...hit or miss.

Only thing is at least at McD's you know what you're getting into and if it's a fail, it's $6.

At BDubs $6 barely gets you celery and ranch or blue cheese...(just one, not both).

Bdubs in Lynchburg, VA is essentially the only decent bar in town so its still packed all the time, especially for sporting events. Watched the sugar bowl v. VT there and almost died.

Agree on these...ever tried Asian Zing? Or something like that...whatever it is, it's good.

They have a Mango Hab that is also really good.

I fuck with their sauces, the wings are usually overrated 8 times out of 10. I stopped going altogether.

I even think Wild Wing Cafe is better for those in NC, SC, and GA.

wtf are you serving...we can usually cook some burgers and serve chips etc for about half that...skip the alcohol and enjoy the game...not complicated. Life does exist without booze.

If you'll just pull up a seat for a moment, ill explain how one "cooks up" on a grill. Here's a cool glass of lemonade, so sit back, and indulge me in this explanatory opportunity. Now, you first must understand that you are only able to "cook up" on a charcoal grill. The "cook up" method does not work with a gas grill. Now, once you have prepared your foods to "cook up" you must begin with radio acid fluid. You'll want to lay on your back underneath the charcoal grill, and rub radio acid fluid under your eyelids. Next, you will grab the bag of charcoal bouquets while still laying down and dump them in. I hope you are still with me Mr. Sydney!!

After dumping the actual coal briquets into the grill mechanism while still lying on your back, you will then begin to pummel yourself about the brow with a corroded danish. This is SO INVIGORATING my friend!Then, and next, you will put the grill grate on from the opposite side while lying on your back. After doing this, you will need to strike a match off of your eyelid and ignite it with the radio acid fluid. This adds FLAVOR! Once you have done so, have a "cooking up" partner load a potato gun with ground beef and shoot it at you! Then take the meat and bring it upwards to the grill surface. This part really begins the "cooking up" process!! Now, you will next position yourself directly below the charcoal grill and while still lying on your back, actually SAW A HOLE in the bottom of the grill! This enhances the "cooking up" process!! Once you have successfully sawed the bottom of the grill open, you will immediately, if not sooner, begin to lift the grill up towards the sky in a herky jerky manner. This also adds a TON of FLAVOR to the "cooking up" process!! The infusion of the meats, juices, radio acid, and herky jerky motion has been revered in the grilling field for eons. The last part to the "cooking up" process is to have your "cooking up" partner actually spray you in the eyes up through the grill with WD40! This lifts the meats to a high level of taste and doneness, and concludes the "cooking up" process. I hope Mr Sydney that you have enjoyed this education on the "cooking up" process. G'day mate! Don't be a dick!

This is so true. I remember going to games with my dad and his buddy who had season tickets. Breakfast, a stop at the Village Apothecary so they could split a pint during the game, concessions, and Bicycle Jims for dinner probably ended up costing both of them $100.

I kept my season tickets when we left Ann Arbor, mainly so my dad can still go to the games, but it ain't cheap. Now throw in the flight from SD to MI, and we are talking at least $1000 for a single game (without bring the rest of my family). Still try to get back for at least one game a year, but it's hard to rationalize the cost.
