Well thanks a lot, Kilgore.  The downstairs bathrooms were the hidden gems at Michigan Stadium but now you've let the cat out of the bag.  Now I'll probably have to wait in line.

To answer the OP, i sit in section 22, row 30 and LOVE my seats.  It took me many years of moving up a section at a time.  I love them because after decades I finally get to hear the band.  That's important to me since I was a MMB member back in the day. Also, I never have to stare into the sun.

Exactly.  Why do they keep returning to this tired shit?

I'll bet it looked better than the helmet.

I paid $84.  There were cheaper seats, but I got midfield seats.  I don't mind sitting with Rutgers fans - they don't know enough to be angry.

I gave up waiting for Rutgers tix and bought them on the secondary market.  Apparently road tix were available when I renewed my season tickets, but I never saw the option.

For a road game, this is the one you want to be a night game.  That allows you to spend most of the day in NYC if you so choose.  Also, the previous two were night games so the precedence has been set.

07/18/2018 - 9:52am I've done the trip twice…

I've done the trip twice from DTW.  There is a train from campus to NYC (Penn Station like jblaze mentioned).  It takes about a half hour if you can get the express train.  There is also a train from the Newark airport to either NYC or Piscataway.  On the Rutgers end, the train station is on the south end of campus and there is a lineup of buses before the game that will transport you free of charge to the stadium.

Our first trip, we stayed on campus and took the train to NYC a couple times.  Last time we stayed downtown and only went to Jersey for the game. We are planning the same routine this year.  There a lot of Michigan fans attending the game.  When we got back to Penn Station it was a pretty cool sight seeing a sea of maize and blue chanting, "It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine."

Getting around NYC is easy: cabs, Uber, and subway.  Trains between the two sites are frequent and ultra-easy.  It is a great trip and by far the best thing about Rutgers joining the conference.

This actually isn't a bad start.  I'm just afraid that it opens the door for athletes to sue their coaches for lack of playing time, or sue their professors for bad grades.

The idea of keying payment to graduation would be a huge incentive.  But what about the fifth year players that are currently given the firm handshake rather than their fifth year.  The SEC would have to guarantee the opportunity to graduate like the B1G and other conferences do.

They sure as hell would pay it if it were tied to their license and plate renewal.  When I worked for EDS in Chicago our parking enforcement rate of collection went from 3% to 75% by the end of the first year and up to 90% by year three.  Just knowing that littering is enforced will make some people think twice.  There is a way.

No, but evidently you can still double post.

I'm hoping the one-two punch of Higdon and Evans will take us to a great season.  Please, please, please provide them some blocking.

This was Corden's best one yet.  They seemed to enjoy making it as much as I did watching.

Wouldn't he have to sit out a year anyway?  I didn't think it was a grad transfer.

A foot in the door...  After his defensive progression this past year he has a chance, and Miami looks like the place to be given their lineup and payroll issues.  They are $19 million over the cap with a sad looking lineup.  They will have to shed some higher paid players and who knows if Dwayne Wade will return next season.

Dirk just turned 40 this week. No doubt he would be a great mentor for Moe.  His minutes are declining pretty rapidly.

I was going to say the same thing.  The step back opens a lot of room for a jumper that looks pretty lethal.

I agree with RC - the diaries are almost always worth the read and should be highlighted.  It's no different than the old site which had the diaries at the top.  It's not a huge effort to scroll past them if you want.  Maybe the 3.1 version could have a user preference that allows you to order the sections.
