Any update on the delay from those of you who are there (safe in the shelters of course)?

08/06/2017 - 1:46am No to the Michigan State

No to the Michigan State game.  Our daughter is 6 now and I won't take her to either of the State games for quite a few more years.

We took our daughter to her first game when she was six months old.  She went to one game each year for every season after until last season when she went to every game (she was 5).

I went to my first game at 2 weeks old but that was in the Ricky Leach era.

Until last year, we only planned to stay until a little after halftime. Earlier home games can be pretty hot so bring hat, sunscreen and lightweight clothing that doesn't expose a lot of skin.

If you sit near the top on the east side you will get almost a quarter of shade (the boxes block the sun). Bring a few contraband kid snacks (like those squeezy pouches) and contact the athletic department about their current baby stuff policy (it seems to change often). You can bring some things in but they change in what form (ziploc bags, I've seen whole diaper bags, etc...). 

She won't remember the game but I totally understand the desire to bring her and did the same thing.  I had to change my view of games with a baby/toddler and be willing to leave early which I never did before.  If you are driving from quite a ways think about if this is the right choice for all of you and your husband needs to be ok with leaving the game early.

11/28/2016 - 8:56pm Clips of OSU punches?

What about the two punches to the head (one following our interception and the other on the touchdown drive)? Any clips of those.  I was watching the North Carolina/North Carolina State game and a player was thrown out for throwing a punch.  Is that no longer a penalty in the big ten?

Looking for a game 2 replay and ESPN has nothing and could only find game 1 on YouTube.
Is it available anywhere?

Also locked out of tickets online. If anyone has two or 3 extra either day that would be lovely.

04/15/2016 - 10:49pm I saw some students

I saw some students being admitted with card but didn't know they set some aside. I thought the athletic department had another avenue for season ticket holders to sell their tickets besides stubhub but couldn't find the email where they were mentioning a new app for this.

Looks like 8-1 right now from the softball field view. Softball is up 1-0 over tOSU

03/26/2016 - 3:23pm Stadium full functioning?

Anyone at the game tomorrow or yesterday know if they had the stadium concessions and bathrooms open? Last year they said the cold delayed a full opening and I'm bringing kids to the game tomorrow.

03/15/2016 - 11:48pm bracket challenge group?

Is there an espn group to join this year and password to join?

Umbball09 that's it. I remembered it having a little more ska type music but it's been awhile. Thanks!

The scoreboard said that he had requested it and I liked that he was enjoying himself.  It wasn't done in a taunting way and it was a refreshing use of the extra music.  Thanks for the link.

Funchess had a big bag of ice wrapped around his right hand at the softball game yesterday. 

Perhaps a little banged up from the game.

09/23/2014 - 5:24pm The figure I heard for last

The figure I heard for last year was $22 million per team from the tv money and this year is projected to be $27 million and $45 million in a few years.

05/11/2014 - 10:18pm I didn't realize we were

I didn't realize we were seeded that far down in the rankings.  Washington has more losses and we have 10 more wins so maybe they have a stronger strength of schedule.

The ASU pitcher must be a sixth year senior because she seems like she's been playing forever.

I thought at first it was an admin asst level but he was apparently an "Athletics Operations Asst Director"  and had a salary of 95,000.

01/06/2014 - 2:21am My dad has held season

My dad has held season tickets for football forever and bb and hockey for 30+ years and he was really peeved with the bb psd and will probably give up hockey (35 for most games) for next year.   We gave up our hockey tickets 2 years ago but kept our football tickets.  I hope they get it soon at the athletic department but I'm afraid that Brandon doesn' t care and when he moves on in a few years, his successor will be left to pick up the pieces.

01/06/2014 - 1:10am And although no way official,

And although no way official, there is talk around town that 1000's have turned back ticket forms already saying they aren't renewing (they'll never officially tell us anyways)

01/06/2014 - 1:06am I know several people who are

I know several people who are giving up their seats and plan to come to an occassional game or two each season through stub hub/scalping, etc...

The main reasons are financial but the product on the field doesn't help.  There is no longer a waitlist for season tickets and a psd for all tickets is ridiculous.  Even though I've gone to almost every home game in my lifetime, I'm seriously considering giving up my seats because paying 475 or plus the ticket per seat is more and more seeming like a bit too much.

Brandon needs to use his supposed marketing skills and complete some more thorough research on his real customer base instead of pretending we can all afford huge donations.

12/27/2013 - 11:04pm I see that you're not

I see that you're not bringing her now but maybe reconsider when she's a few months older. I see nothing wrong with it as I was brought/then brought myself to every U of M home football games from 2 weeks old until I graduated from U of M . Sporting events, both participating and attending was a big family activity. Noise is more of an issue now at Crisler with the excessively loud music introductions at the beginning and the spotlight action probably isn't good. Likewise for football some of the piped in music is jacked up so I would bring headphones (like the concert kind). Enjoy the game with your wife but think about bringing your daughter to a future game.

The look on Saban's face was priceless.

04/09/2013 - 12:12am Obviously a win is preferred

Obviously a win is preferred but the last few games have been icing on the cake.

It's wishful thinking that Trey would decide to stay, wanting another chance at a national championship but we have a pretty good team even if Trey and THJ depart early.

After this loss is grieved for a bit, looking back I think most would agree this has been a great season, even with the ups and downs, and that there's a pretty good future ahead.

Not sure why Ohio band is playing blues brothers. They played it during our hockey series this weekend too. They need to focus on sloopy hanging on.

The defense was a surprising plus and Notre Dame wasn't as scary as I thought they would be.

We kept shooting ourselves in the foot and I don't put that blame on any particular player or coach.  You win as a team, you lose as a team and no matter what some say, I like Denard as our quarterback, faults and all.

Any update on Gardner's condition?
