I am the lizard king


  • SPORTS MOMENT: I go to the UM game every year. My favorites are a tie: Gonzo's catch in 2005, Wil Allen interception in 2002; seeing Bo and Woody on opposite sidelines in 1978, the singing of Carmen Ohio in Michigan Stadium after JT's first win in 2001; Brian Robiski's end zone catch in 2006; Troy Smith entering the field for his final Michigan game in 06; Evan Turner's shot; Beanie's long TD run in Ann Arbor; Art the Dart dancing into the end zone in 81... there are more....

Amen on eliminating championships. Just put them all in one division and we know who is on top in every conference except the Big 12 (which has one mor  game to play ). 

 And make the first round a home game for the top 4. Too many "neutral site" steps to the national championship is tough on fans  

could you imagine next week (a week off in between)

oklahoma at bama

colorado at Ohio State

Wisconsin at clemson

TTUN at Washington. 

(Yes I left pen state out. F them)

no $15 tix there and much higher ratings

I was in the student section. what a blast. i have no voice today.

Best money i ever spent on a Buckeye ticket (and not the most expensive -- 2003 and 2006 take that prize)

Sorry, Dude, but If florida were to somehow beat alabama or VT were to beat clemson they would be automatic? That's not a playoff, imo, that's a mistake. Four works if it is the best four (last year it was not).  If it is eight, it needs to be the eight best, not the conference champs.

One thing the B1G should consider is breaking the big games up so they all don't land in late October and November.

USC was damn loud. But yesterday and 2006 were the loudest and Texas was ear-splitting at times.

I always use craigslist. its great. 

1) always pick up the tickets in person. Do not get them transferred electronically or mailed to you. do it in a public space (though i have gone to a guy's house a couple times). Check the seat number and section. Know what a ticket looks like. 

2) always deal with people who will give you a phone number for txts (and ask for an email too if you really want to be careful). Be friendly and dont be afraid to give your info.They are sometimes suspicious too.

3) if you think it is sketchy and you have the phone number, call it right before you walk up to make sure they gave you the number of the phone they carry. Take a pic of the guy if you are really worried. 

4) enjoy the game. You just saved a ton of fees and the ticket cost you less than it costs someone who goes to seat geek.

If you have that money and you're on the fence, go. Especially if you've never attended a Michigan game in the Shoe

Hell yes! this will be my 35th time going to The Game (18-15-1) Only one (the first) had Bo and Woody on the sidelines, but they have been there in spirit at every other one. I dream of them during this week many years. 

Thanks for the great video clip and a skully that got my blood jumpin, DJ. 

Go Buckeyes! Beat m*chigan! Today, tomorrow and forever.

I look at student ticks all week. Some have to sell before leaving town. But Friday  is a good time to look on the other sites. Then, as AbnTracy says, hang on as long as possible. Prices do come back to earth.  And with the holiday, there are fewer buyers than normal. 

Comment 22 Nov 2016

people asking.too much.  I'll hold out until sat if need be.  And I will be there. I haven't missed one in many years  if people want to sell before Friday night. they should be dropping prices now  I have been answering some craigslist posts and I am the only one exchanging texts with many of these people  o well
