The logistics of night games in AA fascinate me. Such a popular event with so few options for overnight accommodations. Night games should be a boon for crowd enthusiasm,  like in Columbus; however as this thread makes apparent - that is not the case. 

I will hold on to hope that the down in front crowd will be replaced by raucous screaming and standing fans this weekend. Unrealistic,  I know.

09/17/2018 - 10:41pm Taking my 5 year old son,…

Taking my 5 year old son, which was an awesome experience I will never forget, I had read about the price of water. Conveniently the $1 bottle I bought before the percussion pregame rolled up to the size of a chap stick in my pocket. Once in the gate, I inflated it and refilled it many times and the convenient locations around the stadium. We did buy a $7.50 lemonade, a maize corn that was stale as all get out, and were walking to buy frozen lemon ice after the 3rd quarter only to find the majority of the concessions stands had closed. My gripe was not with the prices. There were also misting tents my son enjoyed running through. 


My only gripes:

1. The awful halftime show (no politics.. I enjoyed the Marine performance)

2. Nearly impossible to use data on my cell. They showed the same 30 people on the twitter feed over and over because they were the only people able to post a picture to twitter.


We had a great time, my son loved everything from downtown AA and MDen (which made his day by setting aside the robot toy he had his heart set on) , to seeing everyone in blue and yellow - " Daddy, it looks so cool! Why dont people where it at home? Oh... is it because we live in Ohio state ?"

By the end of the game when we went by the guest relations where they printed him a custom certificate for his first game at the big house, his response was "Thank you, and Go Blue"

If you routinely get to go to games, do not take it for granted.

This is not worthy of its own thread but if anyone is going to be in Ann Arbor today and has 5T size Michigan clothes for boys or girls I would love to buy some hand-me-downs..  driving up from Columbus and the selection is pitiful here.

Bringing my 5 year old to his first game at TBH as well.

Is the "Fan-zone"  (I assume this is in the Pioneer HS parking lot) the same thing as the Meijer FanFest at the corner of stadium & main?  If not, is one better than the other?

Where would you suggest for parking? I know I want to take him to MDen - he's so excited to get the Michigan transformer looking toy..  But I dont know if I should go to MDen first and park downtown and then walk from there, or park somewhere closer to the stadium.

Is the band/percussion rehersal at Revelli Hall or Elbel field ? Does the band perform at one, and the percussion at the other?

Is the Crisler thing a pay to play kind of thing, or giveaways to young kids?

Great deals to be had. Saved a fortune on the ring for my wife through a company called supreme gems Corp. NEGOTIATE.


Also, paper certificates for older rings usually provide savings over the new electronic ones.

Since 3.0 came out I've been asking myself whether MgoBoard is profitable for MGoBlog. If it is, understand I am not trying to cut into the site's profit margin.

Assuming it is not, and assuming it takes a non-insignificant amount of maintenance and upkeep to keep it working, I wonder whether the admins really want to keep it working. Brian, Seth, et all are talented, but responsive web design may not be their core competency or priority.

If all the assumptions above are true, I wonder if they have contemplated outsourcing it, or simply moving it to another hosted solution and farming out administration and moderation to interested / vested members.

It seems like basic forum functionality like private messaging, saved sort orders, reply notifications, etc are all built in to hosted solutions like ZetaBoards..

Anyone have any insight?

Is there an option to private message other users? After the upgrade I had to reset my password  (likely from the android app locking me out) and it stated something about users being able to message you. This or a notification when people replied to my  (very few) comments would be the features I dream about.  


Also, the ticket spreadsheet stick lost the most recent update,  and I no longer have the ability to edit it. I'll try from a pc tomorrow.

This is disappointing.  The app gave me access to mgoboard comments only with a minimal interface where the screen was not filled up with user avatars , point counts, and graphics to vote up and down. On my phone (Which on the toilet is where I consume 90% of my mgoblog) I can see max 5 comments at a time using desktop view. 


If someone can explain how to improve ui on android for mgoboard please post.

Can normal fans easily reuse student tickets?

I plan to take my 5 year old, but I dont expect him to make it through the whole game so I am looking for cheap tickets to WMU or SMU.

I may decide on gameday whether to drive up from Columbus based on the weather. If thats the case I'm curious whether buying student tickets would be an option, or if you need a student ID?

only count on the thread itself, not on comment pages for a specific user.

05/31/2018 - 5:46pm doesn't matter

territories don't matter.. don't think of this like risk. You can only lose 1 territory deep per turn, so maintaining unattainable territories is priority.

last night was rough, but it's going to get worse if we don't get more help and luck.

05/26/2018 - 8:13am Don't forget your wife

Make intentional plans for date nights. If you aren't careful you will have 3 kids in 5 years and realize it's been 2 years since you went out for a dinner by yourselves.

But for now enjoy every memory and sleep when you can. That little baby is going to be walking before you can blink...

for SMU or WMU if you can get 12 you might be able to place a group order

05/04/2018 - 1:13pm 4 to smu or wmu

If anyone is looking to unload 4 to wmu or smu please let me know via the ticket spreadsheet. taking my son and his friend to their first game at the big house, so hoping not to break the bank in case he tires out by halftime.

04/28/2018 - 5:21pm money canon

I'd pitch in if there was a fan fund to offset some of that to encourage future players to go to UM and to stay 4 years..

04/19/2018 - 6:28pm remember me

that should never be a problem. I couldn't find tix for less than 120 each..

04/19/2018 - 6:27pm post them on the spreadsheet

you'll get more traffic that way..

04/19/2018 - 4:07pm 4 tix

If anyone has season tickets and wants to unload 4 wmu/smu tickets, I'm looking. added to the ticket spreadsheet.

04/18/2018 - 12:25pm 4 tickets to early season game

If anyone plans to sell 4 seats together to one of the earlier games in the season, a neighbor and I want to take our 5 year old sons up to their first game. I've got my email added on the ticket spreadsheet..

04/18/2018 - 12:01pm ticket thread hijacking

So I am thinking about taking my 5 year old to his first game at the big house this fall as well. Ideally I'd like to get 4 seats together.

Does anyone know when season ticketholders receive their tickets and when seats will go on sale to the general public?

Louisville was a 1 seed , we were a 4 right? I'm sure we wore maize in the championship game that year.

So I have no clue what color, hence my question.

03/30/2018 - 6:00am tonight

wish the game was tonight, but an Easter final might cause timing complications.

Another thread suggested Friday night ratings would be low, but might Easter Sunday final have been as large as an influencer?

03/30/2018 - 5:58am where's the pizza from

there are enough preservatives and fat in the major pizza companies, slices can often last weeks before mold begins to show.

Sunday doesn't count towards the 40 days.

03/28/2018 - 11:15pm Maundy Thursday

The liturgical calendar determines that Lent ends on Maundy Thursday which falls on March 29, but western churches believe Lent ends on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter on March 31.
