If your anyone includes Beilein, I'm inclined to believe you are wrong.

20 something inebriated. Not enough to knock me forward off the bleacher..

My intent is to show others it is not the nightmare experience others portray it to be.

The game was a nightmare, but not because of the fans.

I am old enough to remember what walking out of the shoe in a victory feels like; that is what keeps me coming back.

I want to hear others' experiences though... if it really is still bad as people portrat with actual violence or vandalism.. ill cease encouraging people to brave it.

Try going to Pittsburgh in a browns jersey( took years to break that addiction). I went forthe playoff game and literally was afraid of being lynched in the stadium before the game started.

Not saying you are wrong, but the homefield advantage in Columbus is significantly more than Ann Arbor or most locations.  Despite our #4 ranking the stadium was (my estimation) 95% OSU. 

Having been spit on, threatened, soaked in beer and many other experiences fat worse.. today was a walk in the park.

They will continue to enjoy their distance advantage until more UM fans pave the way.

The elephant in the room: Did we lose badly enough that Zach Harrison goes to OSU?

Columbus resident and OSU mba grad. Either park in the crosswoods park n ride, or park off of ackerman .. tons of police around that lot. 99% wont do something, none will with the police cameras on the lift in that lot. The lot is also the primary tailgate location. 

23 south to 315 south, make a left on ackerman and the lot is the first on your right. Parking 20-30 bucks.

We should coordinate an mgoblog tailgate or at least meetup at the Ackerman lot off 315. Best parking for the price, and heavily policed. They will stop / prevent vandalism.  

Only you can prevent assault. Dont retaliate ...

Your statement is incorrect. I will be in the student section - so there will be at least one UM fan there.

I bought OSU big ten season tickets and gave away/sold at cost every game up till now. 

Please win.

My oldest is named Carter for obvious reasons. Youngest boy got Alexander as middle name in reference to my grandfather and D. Alexander. 


No UM connection in my daughters name, and never have any regrets. 

You will love whatever names you pick. That is all that matters.

Apologize for the voice to text response. Sitting at Dave & Busters with a three-year-old on my lap. Going to the Horseshoe in your Michigan Jersey is not that bad but you will get sworn at and probably spit on if we won. I'm going sitting in the OSU student section and will treat every insult as a parade of showers.

Am I the only one who cares more about beating OSU than making the playoff?

If someone could promise me a victory in the Game, but rule out a spot in the playoff i would not have an ounce of hesitation. 

Beat penn state. Then Indiana and Rutgers, then lets talk about winning The Game.

Audible has great discounts for new customers. Whats your favorite genre?

Here are books ive loved:

Legal: any John Grisham

Conspiracy theory/drama: dan brown inferno.

High science fiction: Branden Sanderson (many of his books are 20+ hour commitment). Maybe start with the mistborn trilogy. 

Ready player one if you are into 80s nostaligia.

I am pilgrim is a great novel about the hunt for a terrorist.

Under the dome by Stephen King pretty entertaining.

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.

09/12/2018 - 2:51pm Bringing my 5 year old to…

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...

05/04/2018 - 4:02pm group

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..
