Gratzi is easily the worst restaurant in AA in regards to food quality vs. price. The room and bar area is great - maybe best environment in AA. But the food quality is really bad compared to other places around Main St and it's not really that close.

Gonna see how many times you can be wrong in 1 thread.

because it didn't happen.

10/17/2017 - 2:13pm Barstool

Barstool didn't create that sign. They reported on it - no different than a Michigan fan posting a picture taken of that sign while in State College. There is plenty about Barstool to be critical of, but to pick this situation is strange.

02/20/2017 - 8:52pm Preference

Would you prefer SEC west opponents and no ND along with night games over Harbaugh? You pick.

02/20/2017 - 8:08pm People need to pay closer attention

Harbaugh does not want night games. He likes to get home on Saturday nights and enjoy the (presumed) win. If the game starts at 8PM he probably doesn't get home until 230AM. During the football season - September thru early December, Saturday nights are his only "off time". IMO - he's earned the right to push against home night games (we will play many away night games anyway).

Warde fell on the sword last year and he will continue to do so moving forward. The only way we start to have night games in the Big House is if Harbaugh determines it will benefit crootin compared to the enjoyment he gets out of being at home on Saturday night.

Is that just total speculation. Why did you make that statement?

02/05/2017 - 1:30pm People buy both products

This is not a one or the other option. It could make sense to operate 2 front end sites for a while and combine back end activity. Thus you keep both revenue streams. A lot of people probably are both Scout and 247 customers. 247 will be able to make that analysis now.

One prayer to the middle of the field that should have been knocked down at a minimum and 1 TD that Stribling played terrible? Missed a an open WR in end zone and took basically the game ending sack. Not sure we watched the same QB

08/05/2015 - 12:26pm Ross

Brandon talked about it when I saw him talk at Ross in 2011. It came up when he spoke of his path to becoming AD. Below is the first link that comes up when I googled "David Brandon NFL commissioner".

08/05/2015 - 11:16am Brandon

Brandon actually seriously considered going for the NFL commissioner job before Goodell was named. Funny considering I see a lot of similarities between Goodell and Brandon in regards to attention to detail and general smugness.

Agree it's a pretty sweet deal in general. However Hackett made $5.8M last year so I doubt he really cares about the money.

10/08/2014 - 2:13pm The longer Brandon is

The longer Brandon is employed, the less likely we are to get a high end coach (defined as few question marks coming in and an immediate boost to recruiting). Read that Wetzel article from a few weeks ago. NO WAY does this University have the guts or experience to move both an AD and coach and backfill within a few weeks. Who's going to do it? The ivy league new president with no athletics background? The clueless regents?

The need for the boycott is to get Brandon out ASAP. In his own words "when all of your eggs are in 1 basket (football), you'd better watch that basket" - a talk he gave at Ross in 2010. Brandon was not watching his basket when he hired Hoke. He gave us a coach unprepared for this big time football stage yet charged us all along prices that implied he hired a big time coach. Further, he gave us no transparency in how or who was evaluating the hire. And all along the way he has not been watching his basket.

The only hope for big time coach is to move the AD right now. This needs to happen and everyone needs to get behind making this happen since we do not have the people in place to make this decision.

Is it just whomever is up for re-election? Or is by district or something like that? I like this idea a lot.

Club soda has no calories (no sugar). Tonic is loaded with sugar. If you are one to care about that type of thing, adding tonic to your vodka probably more than doubles your calorie intake (and all of that is sugar).

05/11/2014 - 4:41pm Prime Seats

I'm not sure who you are referring to "locking in prime seats". This post referenced the AD offer, which is for endzone seats. The OP is paying $100 plus $1000 ($1100 total) for endzone seats that he likely can stand outside the stadium and pay $300 for the season ($20 each game plus $180 for PSU). So right away the OP is $800 down. Assuming no cost of capital, the OP can skip this terrible season and have $799 next year which will likly cover any entry donation and pay a portion of the PSD and still be ahead.

This AD is very good at pricing down the demand curve and they have a specific strategy to align face value with street value. What they have actually found out is they can charge loyal customers more than street value - a great business to be in for sure. So maybe you are waiting for the day when season ticket holders are given money back from the AD, but I think you'll be waiting a while. Meanwhile the OP can invest that $800 today and be well prepared for when that day comes in 20 years or more.

05/11/2014 - 8:11am PSD

I don't thing you understand how the PSD works. It's not comparable to your jets example. What this offer from the AD is doing is removing the PSD for this year only. The OP will have to pay the PSD next year and all years moving forward. I'm not sure the amount of donation (right to purchase in your example) is normally needed but the AD is setting that at $100.

So in this situation the $100 is the only real number that matters. If michigan wins the NC and that donation to be able to get season tickets increases to $1000, the OP maybe made did ok by sneaking in this year for $100. But I guarantee the street value of his 2014 tix is still less that the $100 plus tickets costs. Further, this AD will never price season ticket costs below street value. That much is clear.
