Then they shouldn't publish policies that aren't finalized.
|08/01/2013 - 9:25am||What about single game ticket holders?||
What seems incredibly unclear at this point is what the money-grab is for the single game ticket holders and visitors? Have they invented some kind of disposable seat cushion that they'll sell inside the stadium? Will they sell these "permanent" seat cushions on an individual game basis?
Sure, they're getting some extra money from season ticket holders, but they're missing out on the single gamers.

If it's any consolation (or if you see this) you should be able to get an exemption from the AD if you send in a doctor's note (assuming you aren't a season ticket holder). They'll send you a letter that you show when you go through the gate that will allow you to take in a seat cushion. That's how I know someone takes in a seatback into Michigan Stadium.

Unless I'm missing something their Twitter account is operated by undergrads.

I can't believe there isn't video of the pregame portion of the St. Cloud State game. I know my digital camera at the time had a no-audio video mode and if you even had a cellphone, it likely didn't shoot video, but someone must have booth video of that event.
It really is my fondest memory of Yost and was glad to be a part of it (and part of the horrible, unwelcoming band in GR the previous year)!
|04/06/2011 - 4:27pm||Viewing Angles||
Does anyone, that's familar with this video board technology, know if those in the North Endzone will be able to look to their own board for replays (much larger due to proximity) or will they still have to took to the South Endzone? I typically had to look South due to our angle to the old video boards.

Additionally, if you could get reliable data service in Michigan Stadium, you could buy a Sling Box and run your replays from home.
|04/05/2011 - 3:32pm||Compare Usable Screen Size||
So, since we shouldn't be wasting space on our screens with advertisements in Michigan Stadium, how do our screens compare with the "usable" area of the top ranked scoreboards in the NCAA?
|09/16/2009 - 4:27pm||Just because it isn't a||
Just because it isn't a simple matter of volume from the current membership doesn't mean it isn't fixable. Some things could be done by Saturday, others like moving the band, rebuilding membership, etc, can't happen until next season at the earliest.
It certainly is easy to critique. Solutions? Those are harder to come by.
|09/16/2009 - 4:20pm||Yes, moving the band is a||
Yes, moving the band is a piece of the puzzle. Don't expect that to happen this season or probably next season given their current plate of building projects.
|09/16/2009 - 4:00pm||No, nothing has changed at||
No, nothing has changed at the stadium since the 70s. The band hasn't moved around a couple times, the field wasn't dropped, rows weren't added, people and their level of involvement at the stadium hasn't changed, the MMB membership hasn't changed, boxes weren't added...
This isn't a simple problem of volume from the current members of the MMB. Get over it.
|09/16/2009 - 10:51am||Yes, all agree that PIM will||
Yes, all agree that PIM will be louder than any band, but I think the most important point is to change things so the MMB can be heard at all points in the stadium. Part of the pro PIM argument is that the MMB falls short 100% of the time given that people cannot hear them. If more people can hear the MMB, then the MMB has a better chance of being appreciated as part of the game day experience.

Who do you believe carries a flute in the MMB?
|09/16/2009 - 9:19am||Another thought on||
Another thought on requirement. Maybe we could meet in the middle by providing the choice between membership in the MMB or membership in a "reserves" capacity. They'd get a uniform, march to the stadium, and play in the stands (and post-game). To the public, they'd look like regular reserves, but to those members their time and physical commitment would be siginificantly reduced. I think something could be worked out so that they rehearse music with the band on Friday nights to work on the show music (which should be enough for music majors) after spending some additional time during band week to go over the traditionals and stand tunes.
Choosing membership in the "reserves" would eliminate the possibility of all trips, so it would be up to those members to decide what's important to them.
|09/16/2009 - 6:36am||Should have been clearer||
I thought it worked out well for the Bronco Band of the William Pease era. With the proper direction, as you pointed out with Revelli, it can work out well. Those that aren't motivated won't make block leaving those that want to be there to perform while the rest are there to help with the sound in the stands.

|09/15/2009 - 4:54pm||No Simple Fix||
There are multiple issues that have attributed to the band's reduction of sound. Instead of adding to the current laundry list of reasons why, here are some ways to resolve the issues. Some of these issues can be fixed immediately, others will require time and some will require money.
I strongly believe that the RAWK music had little to do with getting the crowd into the game. RAWK music did not get section 38 to stand up for the majority of the game. RAWK music didn't make the crowd so pumped that they lost their minds and were loud while we were on offense. The fans have finally figured that their involvement can impact the game. The ND game will remind those in attendance at future games that we can have a home field advantage.
