    I was kind of surprised but people clapped at the Michigan tix only being available via season tix.

    Nice gesture for the 10 year season ticket holders.

    So if they only sell 31k for season tix the rest of the seats stay empty? Or are they counting on Michigan alumni buying season tix just to get a seat for the game?

    If it's the latter and 7k Michigan fans buy season tix that leaves a lot of empty seats for the other games.

    It's incentive to get people to buy season tickets.

    I absolutely get that. I guess I was thinking regular folk wouldn't want to buy season tickets just to see Michigan kick our asses. Or not kick our asses.

    I think it will boost numbers but I can see Michigan alumni from the tri state area and MA scooping them up for a very short road trip to see their beloved Wolverines.

    All I can say is that I look forward to my surprise gift and CT fans had better step the eff up and buy some season tickets.

    They are going to do that if they have to anyway.

    The market will determine if season tickets are the only way in or not. They would have to sell season tickets to about 28k non-students to sell the building out for the year. Thats off a baseline of about 17k non students.

    Common practice for schools to do this. UNC did it a couple of times. Once years back when Texas was coming in. And also a couple of years ago when ND came to CH.

    A family member is a UM alum and I know that he and several others want to go to the game. Plenty of UM grads in these parts including metro NYC.

    Warde was funny... he made it a point to say that he REALLY want's to beat Michigan when they come in and doesn't want anyone thinking otherwise. He wants to be able to talk smack to all his old Michigan buddies.

    Warde being a secret agent for Michigan was always one of my favorite conspiracy theories posted on here... :)

    I'm sure Michigan will get a few thousand tix as an allotment. After that... get your season tix already!

    Maybe they will offer up the unused tickets to current season ticket holders only and not to the general public. That would prevent all the Michigan fans getting the tickets from ticketmaster and then having the place full of 15k Michigan fans.

    That way we could sell them to Michigan fans at a hefty mark-up. Brilliant!

    So much for going to the UM game for me. With a daughter who'll be one around the time of the game there's no way I'llbe getting season tix. Had them up until lsst season but her birth put a hold on attending the games. Went to UM with the he wife wgen we played there so I guess that'll have to do....thst really sucks....I'll see what I can get on stubhub but prob not gonna be in our price range. If anyone gets or ends up with extra tix let me know. It took a lot just to get the wife to agree to go to the game. Stupid kids! :)
