04/02/2013 - 11:12am can you split Sat/Mon?

Did you buy through PrimeSport? I am thinking about pulling the trigger but I am curious if you can sell the Monday portion of your ticket through PrimeSport? I can only make it on Saturday and would like to offset part of the ticket price by buying the full strip and then listing the Monday ticket for sale. I can't tell if you can do that on PrimeSport or not.

04/02/2013 - 11:07am I am in the same boat,

I am in the same boat, looking for 2-4 tix for Saturday. I think one big issue is that the NCAA sold "paperless" tickets for much of the stadium. The tickets are tied to the credit card used to purchase them. The only way to transfer them is through Flash Seats or the NCAA's official online marketplace at That is why there is nothing on Stubhub - there are few actual paper tickets and you can't transfer the paperless onces via Stubhub. It seems like a major crackdown on the secondary market.

I have been monitoring PrimeSport. Ticket prices have risen since Sunday. I am not sure what to do. On the one hand, there are tons of tickets still listed on PrimeSport, but on the other hand, prices haven't fallen. I'm also somewhat skeptical that there will be lots of paper tickets being scalped since it doesn't look like many exist, particularly for the 300-level.

03/10/2012 - 7:31pm yea, it's just local AA/Detroit I believe

I think it's only on comcast in the local area.

03/10/2012 - 7:27pm the game is on TV in the ann arbor area

it's on the comcast sports channel, channel 900 I think. Is it on uverse though? I don't see it anywhere.

01/21/2012 - 8:22pm stream?

anyone know if there is a stream for the game tonight?

04/08/2011 - 10:04am frozen four tickets

Hey guys,

My wife and I would like to head up to the hockey game on Saturday night. We'll be driving up from Chicago. If anyone has any tickets, please email me at sinicropi @

08/30/2010 - 4:45pm I've read the preview but

I've read the preview but it's pretty clear from other stuff I've read (i.e the 3-3-5 summary in Hail the Victors and Sharik's posts on what to expect from our D this year) and it's a consistent theme that our CBs will not be playing press coverage close to the line. So while they may not be lined up 8-10 yards off the line as they are in this clip, they're likely to have some sort of cushion.

11/17/2009 - 10:18am tickets at mgoblue?

is the Michigan allotment already sold out? I'd rather sit in the Michigan section but I don't remember the tickets going on sale and now they aren't on mgoblue.

10/10/2009 - 3:32pm various Goose Island

Costco had cases of Harvest Ale and a variety pack (IPA, Oatmeal Stout, Nut Brown Ale, Harvest Ale) so I've got those sitting in the Cribs fridge in the living room.

10/08/2009 - 12:07pm huh?…

09/24/2009 - 12:24pm the game is on ESPN2

The game is on ESPN2, there is no coverage map b/c everyone will get it. Here is a good site that aggregates the entire college football schedule and will have all relevant coverage maps when they are available:

09/15/2009 - 5:39pm you can't hear the band

I was sitting directly opposite ND's band in section 18 (along the goaline on the west side). I did not hear our band once during the game.

09/15/2009 - 10:22am more photoshop

do we know how credible the rumor is?

09/14/2009 - 2:55pm not only that, but they had Minor and Hemingway as starters

I noticed the starting lineups and they had Minor as the RB and Hemingway as WR. WTF?

09/11/2009 - 1:11pm lots of tickets on facebook

There are lots of tickets available on facebook, they are student tickets going for $50 or less. You would have to pay $40 to get these validated. I have scalped tickets for numerous OSU/ND games and never had to pay significantly more than face. If you walk around the tailgates, I'd imagine you can find an M fan that has an extra that they're just looking to get rid of as opposed to someone trying to make a quick profit.

Stubhub has tickets available for about $100 so I can't imagine the price being higher than that closer to kickoff. There are ads on craigslist for tickets are $70.

09/10/2009 - 9:55am When will the american apparel shirts be available?

When will the American Apparel shirts be available? I strongly suggest the 50/50 cotton/poly shirt, they are the best t-shirts ever.

Regarding the maize, I think American Apparel's sunshine color would be good. It might not be a perfect Michigan maize, but it is a good color and might lend itself to a more vintage look. Here are the poly-cotton shirts, you can see the sunshine and gold colors here:

08/30/2009 - 12:22pm what about visiting their website?

Giving them clicks is basically the equivalent as a subscription right?

08/27/2009 - 9:39am get rid of the text

this is the best shirt yet but I say dump the text. Also, how are you going to get around the legal issues of using all of those images?

08/08/2009 - 10:15am re: color

I see there is concern regarding the color of the maize shirt. First, I don't think it's a problem if the color of the shirt is a little different than the neon bright yellow on the adidas shirts. I think the 'sunshine' color at AA could be good, looks good online, I will have to swing by the store to see if it looks as good in person:

08/08/2009 - 10:11am need American Apparel

I second the recommendation for a 50/50 American Apparel shirt that fits a little tighter. I can't wear the heavy 100% cotton shirts, it looks like I'm wearing a poncho and they are just too heavy. Also, look for the 50% cotton/50% polyester shirts, they are the best, much more light weight.

08/07/2009 - 10:51am exactly right...

I suppose this begs the question - is it feasible to have a decent back-up QB in a run-based spread option offense or is it just too difficult of an offense to have a back-up QB step into and have the offense not lose much production. In other words, is it much easier for a traditional pocket passer QB to step into the offense than it is for a run-based option QB? Also, given the most prominent examples (Dixon and White), is it more of an issue of these teams not being able to recruit enough highly rated guys to serve as possible back-ups? In other words, does a program like Michigan that can recruit more depth at QB stand a better chance of handling an injury moreso than a program like Oregon or WVU.

Too many variables to control obviously but I'm just throwing out ideas.

08/07/2009 - 9:52am taking it a step further....

Good analysis, I think you did about as well as realistically possible. One thing I would think about adding to the analysis is: how did the offense perform after the starting QB went down and how did that compare with the offense's performance prior to the starting QB getting hurt. In other words, are spread option teams more significantly hampered by their starter going down (see Dennis Dixon, Pat White in '07) than an offense with a traditional pocket passer QB going down? Maybe a simple yards/game with the starter compared to yards/game after the starter chart would give a rough approximation.
