01/02/2018 - 10:19am Like you, I won't watch...

I too was excited for it but will not be watching it now.

I've also decided that I'm going to renew my season tix but I won't be: going to any road games, no bowl games (unless we make NC game), no extra donations and much less merch/gear.

I still love Michigan Football but its too expensive for where we are right now.

12/08/2017 - 10:46pm Don't worry...

I got an email today saying that mine shipped w a FedEx tracking #.  I should be getting it on Wed.

10/30/2017 - 6:05pm I received a refunded email...

It said the order was refunded but when I looked at the rest of the email, the "Refunded" line showed a dollar amount for what the discount would have been (I ordered mine before the code was released).  Mine was just a pricing adjustment.

07/30/2017 - 3:58pm Cool and all but...

I'm annoyed the school ok'd the Block M to be used on this but refuses to ok Hover Helmets...I'd much rather have 1 of those.

07/25/2017 - 2:34pm idk if it was...

or wasnt i was replying to a different thread and after I hit save noticed I was in the wrong thread.

07/25/2017 - 2:33pm Central Reply Office....

This is exactly why the Big Ten needs to have centralized replay from Chicago as it would take the call out of the officials hands.  The conference then couldn't hide behind officials using the standard "judgment call" excuse.

07/25/2017 - 2:31pm delete....

wrong thread

03/08/2017 - 7:27am Yes, last couple of years...

The very 1st hat was all blue when Harbaugh threw out the first pitch (2015).

03/02/2017 - 9:57am Agree with you...

Also considering a family member is a huge recruit for us (TE Will Mallory).

Michigan sections are sections 109-122; 209-219; and NW corner end zone.

Ps - he's the man!

I had to buy on stubhub too and used this to see each view in the stadium.  You can either click on a section or type in the section on the top bar.

Exact same section and row for my 8th year.

03/16/2016 - 8:40pm Jedd Fisch's Twitter...

Said more info should be out around the 3rd week of June (tweet from Feb 12).  Sounds like Harbaugh might get his Brady TB12 Ann Arbor location.

02/23/2016 - 8:50am Surprised nobody...

has put together a vid of Harbaugh highlights set to the NWO theme song.  Lol

02/09/2016 - 11:07pm Hmmmm

That surely could not be what Hackett meant by "incentives" when talking about Gary's recruitment....could it?!?

12/29/2015 - 7:42am 2017 Cesar Ruiz

#2 center overall out of FL IMG.

Harbaugh started recruiting him early and he has said nothing but good things about Michigan.

07/27/2015 - 8:46pm WTF...

I rushed home from work and nothing.  And I live in Metro Detroit!!!

06/19/2015 - 12:55pm Red Rock...

I would say Red Rock as well for the area.  They have a very good beer list as well.

03/29/2015 - 10:06pm wow I'm surprised...

I figured w Coach Harbaugh here, everyone would have renewed their tickets and the interest list would have been huge.  There must have been a really big drop in season ticket holders the last few years.

03/02/2015 - 10:32pm thanks...

Tailgate Clothing Co - they do run small (2 sizes for me).

http://www.tailgateclothing.com/collections/college-michigan

They also have a collection of tshirts for beers and bars:  http://www.tailgateclothing.com/collections/beer  http://www.tailgateclothing.com/collections/speakeasy-t-shirts

03/02/2015 - 8:37pm If I had to pick just one...

the new jacket I just got.

really warm.  Like everyone else, I have a ton of stuff and can think of at least 5 other things but I'll just pick one.

02/27/2015 - 8:10am Got the coat...

Loved how clean and simple it was.  There's nothing on the back and its not covered in patches like other varsity coats out there.

I got it from Tailgate Clothing - they got some cool stuff.  http://www.tailgateclothing.com/

02/27/2015 - 8:09am Tailgate Clothing Co

http://www.tailgateclothing.com/collections/college-michigan

The notes are spot on - they do run really small.

02/24/2015 - 9:56pm I don't think its New Era...

if you watch the presser from mgoblue.com, neither side of the hat has a logo on it.

I wonder if this is just his personal Michigan hat that he's kept over the years.

01/21/2015 - 9:18pm Thanks Again...

looks like I'm gonna do some shopping once I get my tax refund!

01/21/2015 - 8:55pm Thank you....

I knew you would know - too bad I can't get one (assuming everyday joe can't order from the team catalogs) that jacket Marshall had on is sweet.

01/21/2015 - 5:40pm Question WD...

The blue adidas jacket that Iman Marshall was wearing in pics, do you know where you can get one?

01/08/2015 - 12:49pm Might as well get the Michigan ones...

but w it being Very Limited Preorder only, thought I should get it up ASAP.

01/08/2015 - 12:40pm You have to call...

Its preorder only, I just called and ordered one.

12/29/2014 - 3:02pm Totally agree...

He wanted the job so bad and now 3 times reports are he was never a candidate yet has been nothing but a class act about it.

Would have loved his as Plan B.

12/28/2014 - 9:13pm Kaepernick was my fav...

He ended his part of the presser w something to the effect of he'll always be a fan of Coach Harbaugh...not so much Michigan.

10/06/2014 - 11:13pm Bud Foster?

Curious what the board thinks but I haven't seen him mentioned at all.

Foster's had solid defenses at Va Tech, you always hear he's a great recruiter and Beamer signed an extension during the off season to 2019.

10/02/2014 - 8:29pm Here's what she should do...

forward the whole email to President Schlissel.

03/14/2014 - 9:09pm Well that sucks...

With all our big games being on the road, I wasn't expecting ND, MSU or OSU but I would have thought I would have been offered Rutgers and Northwestern.

12/29/2013 - 12:22pm I agree w you but...

I also agree w Finance-phD.

To your point: yes they should have done a better job promoting their own event.  They could have easily split the bar area in 2: one side all tables and TVs dedicated to the football game and the other to UFC.  All locations in Kansas and Michigan would have audio to the game for the teams playing in the game (I know you weren't in MI so that part wouldn't help you).

To Finance-phD's point:  they already sunk in millions of dollars, so adding discounts, etc. would have cost them even more.  Buffalo Wild Wings put in about $2 mil and then costs for ads.  They got their brand out there nationally, which is all they wanted and weren't going to do anything more.  From last year:  http://www.sponsorship.com/Sponsorship-Consulting/Focus-on-College-Football-Bowl-Games--IEG-Research/What-s-in-a-Name--$99-Million-for-Bowl-Game-Title.aspx

I'm not sure if this still applies but when I worked in a bar, the rules on the pay per view events was your capacity times the cost of the event.  The fights are usually about $60 so you're looking at $45k for a 750 capacity bar.

12/29/2013 - 11:46am If anyone is that upset...

you can always go to their website and send some feeback:

12/29/2013 - 11:43am I know alot of people who work at bars that show UFC fights...

the "food and a few beers...lounging at the table for 4 hours" is what the UFC fans do too.  They hate working these nights.

12/29/2013 - 10:29am My Favorite...

On the Buffalo Wild Wings website, the front page says they are "the official hangout for NCAA sports".

09/09/2013 - 10:46pm Also new...

Woodson narrates this one, while Lloyd narrated the first.

09/09/2013 - 10:43pm Thank you...

I tried a few times and failed miserably.

07/31/2013 - 9:04pm Possible because Oregon is Phil Knight's football franchise...

the article is from a few years ago, but Phil Knight pays for everything there (unfortunately its written by Rosenberg):  http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2011/writers/michael_rosenberg/01/06/oregon.knight/index.html

All i know is that program is screwed when he passes.

07/30/2013 - 8:36pm Flying in...

I'd rent a car.

Looks like your hotel is a shuttle stop:  http://www.aata.org/football.asp

07/30/2013 - 6:15pm Family 4 pack

You can buy a family 4 pack to that game direct from Michigan.  4 tix, 4 tshirts, 4 hot dogs, 4 drinks and 2 programs for $310.  http://ev8.evenue.net/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/SEGetPackageInfo?packageCode=GS%3AUM%3A%3AF13FP3%3A&linkID=umichse&shopperContext=&caller=&appCode=

The band is in the student section, so you don't have to worry about that.

You can always park at Pioneer HS (SW corner of Stadium/Main; kitty corner from stadium) or on the golf course (SE corner of Stadium/Main).  You shouldn't have a problem finding a spot at these locations and should run you about $40 to park at either.  With it being a 3:30 kick and 1st game of the year, I would expect most will get there real early.

There is a small Fan-Fest where Pioneer is w some radio broadcasts and other pregame festivities.

06/04/2013 - 10:35am Between Maize and End Zones...

They are in the corners of the stadium w $200 per seat donation.  Go to the 2013 PSD Guide:  http://support.mgoblue.com/annual-giving/preferred-seating-donation/

05/05/2013 - 12:58pm Yes

I would have to assume he will be in attendance for UTL 2 this year when they bring back Ol' Number 98 for this year's Legends Ceremony.
