Hope he doesn't throw the 40 thru the window, though! 

08/28/2017 - 2:26pm Cut them up

We need Chris Sale to cut them all up so we can't wear them! Awful!

01/28/2017 - 6:54pm Leaders & Best

I am very proud of my alma mater for taking a stand!

12/08/2015 - 9:43am Selling my 2 Tickets

I don't have the section/row yet.  The tickets should be in hand in the next week or so.  Bought them during the pre-order from athletic department.  In Michigan section.  $120 each ($240 total) which is what I paid.  

Send me an e-mail at [email protected] if interested.  

12/07/2015 - 3:14pm $240 for the pair

Not sure where they are located in the stadium.  But they will be in the Michigan Section as I ordered them through the Athletic Department.  

I should get the tickets in the mail in the next 10 days or so.  Shoot me an e-mail at [email protected] and we can work logisitcs.

Between you and SARTO1G  , whomever will commit to the tickets first will get them.  

12/06/2015 - 3:44pm $95-$140

Which is the range the Athletic Dept gave when we were asked to order them.  Whatever they charge me is what I will ask from the fine folks at MGoBlog.

I guess there is an outside chance I will not get them as availability was based on priority points, but I think I should.   

12/06/2015 - 12:05pm Sell you mine at face!

I ordered tickets thru UM and I cannot go. Happily sell them to you for face value. Let me know.

05/20/2014 - 12:28pm Father/Son Camp - Great!!

I attended the Father/Son Camp last year with my then 8 year old.  It was an awesome experience.  A little light on the basketball skills development.  It was skewed more towards fun and games and fostering a love of the game. And a love of Michigan Basketball of course. Very well run, very well organized.  Beilein was there every day.  Tremendous access to the players and facility.  Highly recommend it.  I would do it again this year if the dates had worked out.

As for the 1/2 day camp which my son did last year as well.  The same critique applies. The camp was a little light on the skills development and more skewed towards fostering a love of the game.   

If you and your son are Michigan basketball fans I cannot think of a cooler thing to do than the Father / Son camp.

Gorilla Run. Halloween costume set for the next five years plus.

04/25/2012 - 2:41pm OMG!!

How is the Michigan Stadium and Ann Arbor Infrasturcture going to be able to handle all the Canadians coming across the border for the Winter Classic?  Didn't anyone know its going to be cold January 1!  And the throngs of media for that game.  How will the stadium handle it?

Ann Arbor is doomed!  

04/25/2012 - 2:31pm Simple math

Yes, very rough math assuming 25K students out of 100,000 total fans.  As you said the overarching point is Michigan has 75K or more people coming in from outside the AA borders to attend a game.  The same thing happens on every single campus of every single major player in college football.  The infrastructure argument holds no water. 

04/25/2012 - 12:46pm I disagree completely

Of the 75,000 non-students who attend a Michigan home game, 65,000 or more live outside Ann Arbor.  The city has no problems handling that number of people coming from outside the city.  A playoff home game would see very little difference from a Michigan - Ohio game.  People drive in, park, tailgate and drive out.  People travelling from out of state find rooms in Ann Arbor, Plymouth, Brighton, etc.  Drive in, park, tailgate, drive out. People who have RV's do the same.  They drive in the night before like always, park tailgate, go home.

 This happens every Saturday in the fall in college towns across the United States.  People are now trying to create issues where there are none. 

04/25/2012 - 12:15pm Serious?

Not trying to be rude, but are you serious?  An NFL Stadium, take the Super Dome or Georgia Dome, Joe Robbie Stadium or Univ. of Phoenix Stadium, is even less equipped to handle the "colossal draw of humanity," all showing up in RV's.  

 Have you been to a SEC game where 1/4 of the fans show up in RV's.  Or a Penn State or any big time college stadium?  This argument is nearly as laughable as Hancocks!

 

04/25/2012 - 12:07pm Idiots

So, it appears that Hancock has not been to a big time college football game in a while.  Let's take Michigan - Notre Dame from this past year or Michigan - Ohio from 2006.. You're telling me that there will be more media attending those games than a National Semi-Final?  Maybe a handful. 

As for fans, if he would walk around a campus he would easily see that for the 100,000 fans inside the stadium, there are another 25,000 outside without tickets tailgating, watching at bars, etc.  Infrastructure.  Laughable.

The real reason is cold weather and money.  Southern teams / conferences don't want to entertain the thought of playing at Michigan Stadium or the Horseshoe in December.  Also, the power brokers are looking at having a windfall of money by having sites bid on the games while charging $300 plus per ticket for the semi-finals and probably a Super Bowl-esque $500+ for the National Championship. 

That is absurd.  It will lead to less than optimal attendance at the semi-final games and the less affluent fans will save their money and only travel to the Championship game. 

11/27/2011 - 8:02pm Ahhhhhhhh!

Hide the women and children!!! Urban Meyer and Mike Stoops are coming!!! We're doomed!!!
<br>
<br>AHHHHHHHHHHHH!

11/27/2011 - 7:58pm RVB

RVB = ladies man.

11/19/2011 - 7:31pm Bring it!

OSU. You want Urban Meyer as coach. Fine. Bring it. I ain't afraid of him or anyone he puts on his staff.

11/08/2011 - 10:08am Wow

Is that a shoddily written report.  The Detroit Lions are no closer to being on the verge of financial collapse as Mark D'antonio is on the verge of being a classy individual. 

An NFL franchise is a medium to print money.  I doubt the writer of the story took into consdieration all the various revenue streams for an NFL team.  In fact most teams can be profitable without selling a single ticket.  The only area where the Lions are not maximizing revenue is in the sale of Club seats and Suites.  The purchase of those is directly coorelated to winning.   

10/25/2011 - 3:31pm Northville

Barnes and Noble in Northville had 20 or so copies left as of 1pm.  But they were selling fast.  Even the clerks were a little befudled as to the popularity of a book they had never heard of. 

10/25/2011 - 3:27pm FYI, they were nearly sold

FYI, they were nearly sold out of Three and Out at the Barnes and Noble in Northville.  The clerks were very confused over why this book was flying off the shelves. 

10/18/2011 - 10:37pm My money

Is on NC State with a close 2nd to Ole Miss.

10/11/2011 - 3:24pm They put on the gloves of green and picked l'il brother clean

Michigan: 35

Wayne State Tatars: 24

09/20/2011 - 11:14am The Big Ten ain't expanding

Unless it is Notre Dame or Texas.  There is no need otherwise.  Those are the only two schools out there that will increase the revenue each Big Ten school currently receives. 

09/14/2011 - 1:09pm 5-years old

5-years old and older.  I've taken my son to a number of games from birth on.  He is now 6.  Last year was the first year he was able to sit through the majority of the game and have it be enjoyable for both of us. 

 

09/13/2011 - 9:54am Wayne State

I immediately thought they were patterned after the Wayne State Tartars!

09/06/2011 - 2:28pm Bitch & Moan

If Michigan were a Nike school, people would bitch and moan about their quality too.

09/01/2011 - 7:08am Handicap seats

Trade those tickets for 2 in the handicap seats. You can do that through the ticket office.

08/24/2011 - 3:22pm Group D

Could that be renamed Group of Death, meaning is death an option?  I hate all those teams!

08/24/2011 - 12:16pm Newcastle

I would add Newcastle to the list as they are a competitve club, though they have not challenged for the title in a few years.

As an Arsenal supporter as well, this has been a supremely difficult offseason.  At some point they have to stop being a feeder club and bring in some talent in their prime, much like they did with Bergkamp and Henry.  Which also saw them winning trophies. 

08/24/2011 - 12:11pm It's hard to say who to root for

as usually there has to be some personal connection.  For example, I support Arsenal because when I was over in London in 1996, I was able to go to a game at Highbury, their old stadium.  After that experience I was hooked.

My suggestion would be to go to Wikipedia and start reading up on teams that are in the EPL and see which ones suit your fancy. 

Two teams that you may want look at would be Fulham and Everton as they both have Americans playing key roles in Clint Dempsey and Tim Howard respectively.

08/12/2011 - 4:10pm Maybe someone was trying to steal his car stereo?

No wait, that was Shonte Peoples. 

 

08/12/2011 - 4:09pm Granger, IN

Which I believe is outside South Bend, between SB and Elkhart. 

08/12/2011 - 3:54pm Well

There goes his career. 

07/30/2011 - 1:41pm Beckmann

I believe you are referring to Frank Beckmann who has a conservative leaning radio show on WJR. Not Brandy. Beckmann does the play by play. Brandy is the color man.

07/21/2011 - 10:13pm Having some experience with deals like these...

The deal is probably for somewhere in the neighborhood of $25-$50k per year. Unless you are a Tom Brady with national appeal these local deals are not worth as much as you'd expect.

07/13/2011 - 3:14pm 79

I am going to assume, since I got moved from 34, that they are going down the middle essientially.

As for rows, you are going to be better off with row 79.  I sat in 46 for the last 15 years, which was a great row, but the further away the action went, the more difficult it was to follow.  It will be easier to follow the action on the far end much better in 79.  in 23, you are low enough that anything past the 50 yard line will be hard to follow. 

A side benefit will be the ease of entry and exit.  The lines to enter and exit the section can get ridiculously long, being just above the tunnel will be very useful, especially at halftime.

07/07/2011 - 3:28pm Who Cares

I mean, seriously.  Every other week he is throwing a couple of schools out there to keep his name in themedia.  At this point its almost as bad as the never ending Brett Farve retirement saga.  Its probably worse as we don't have Rachel Nichols camped out providing hourly reports on Tate.

 

 

06/28/2011 - 1:52pm Yes

I remember from a some previous discussions on this topic that this insignificant support is due to the IRS and accounting rules that govern Work-Study employees. 

06/25/2011 - 9:27pm Pure Sugar

Pure Sugar makes a huge difference in taste.  I buy 3 or 4 cases of the Pepsi Throwback whenever it comes out.  Wish Coke would do the same or make the kosher version more readily available.

BTW, wow is Justin Verlander good. 

06/25/2011 - 9:24pm Gentleman Jack

Gentleman Jack on the rocks, while working on some work crap due early in the week. 

06/23/2011 - 9:06am Expensive

We've been parking there for the last 15 years and I have a feeling this year will be our last. I have a hard time shelling out nearly $50 per game to park especially since I can't go to every game.
<br>AAG&O is a great location but they are pricing themselves out of the market.

06/20/2011 - 8:52pm Canham

I believe the practice of paying out of state tuition for scholarship athletes Started under Canham. It is considered a gift or donation to the University.
<br>I love the fact we do this and would be curious if any other athletic departments do this.

06/15/2011 - 2:24pm Didn't get 1st Choice Seats

Guess I should've donated some money this year as I have 20+ points waiting to be activated if I'd have sent some cash.

Moved from Section 34 to Section 13.  At least I am closer to my tailgate! 

05/27/2011 - 10:55am I am not commenting

I am not commenting until I see the entire speech.  It is very easy to take a couple of lines from a speech and completely twist the meaning. 

That said, I sincerely doubt that Desmond is throwing Denard under the bus or hanging him out to dry. 

05/20/2011 - 10:13am Wow. Fu-gly!

Are those jerseys f'n ugly.  Please do not do it! 

Go with the numbers on the helmet and call it a day. 

05/16/2011 - 4:23pm Not much to add

SixZero has most of it covered.

Try to remember that you aren't going to kill them if you only put six scoops of formula in bottle instead of seven.  He/She will be ok if he/she has a small tumble.  So don't obsess about every little thing.

[Non-Parents Please move to next paragraph]  Your wife is going to be very emotional and little things will get to her.  Not sure if she is planning to breast-feed.  If she is and it works out great.  If not, assure her that it is not a big deal and your kid is not going to be affected by it.  Your wife will feel so much pressure from outside sources to breast-feed and feel that she is a failure if she cannot. 

Don't be afraid to take the little guy out with you to dinner, the store, etc.  Kids can complicate doing stuff like that but they are not a ball and chain.

Buy a good jogging stroller (I recommend the BOB Revolution).  If you like to exercise, they are worth every penny!

Also and very important, make sure you and your wife have some time for each other.  Try to start lining up sitters, grandparents, etc.  Nights out without having to worry about the kid are very nice and necessary to maintain sanity.

Best of luck and most of all, have fun.  

05/13/2011 - 1:35pm Hmmmm,

You're probably right. 

Shame Little Enos.  Shame.

05/13/2011 - 1:11pm Cheerleader or Offensive Lineman?

I just noticed, but is that a Cheerleader or OL to the left of Mr. Bass?  Just wondering.

05/09/2011 - 10:36pm I have detested him since

I have detested him since undergrad, so I definately did not jump on the hate StupidFan bandwagon.  The guy is a total wannabe, douche.  I mean, how many 35+ year olds that you know dress up in a Batman-like costume?    

05/09/2011 - 12:23pm Stupid Fan

God, I hate Stupid Fan.  I'd have rather had a photo of RichRod or GERG on the front page.
