Season ticket SALES may be down due to things unrelated to on field product, but ATTENDANCE is down because of it. Usually there are hundreds of people for each season ticket holder, that would buy a ticket, even at face value just to get in one game. Now if a season ticket holder cannot make a game, they cant give their tickets away. That 104,000 number is way over inflated. 

I am one of those less fortunate to be able to afford season tickets and clubs and all that. However I usually make it to one game a year, that usually being against the likes of a Kent State. People like me are not showing up this year at Michigan. Michigan boasts that they have one of the biggest fan bases in the country, are you telling me there are not 7500 people out there to take up the slack from low season ticket sales?

Here is a direct quote from ESPN's John Saunders last night during a recap of the days games. He said this confidently and matter-of-factly without even mention of any other team giving any trouble: "Looking at Michigan State's schedule, I don't see them losing another game the rest of the season." Let that sink in...

Agreed! Just not the "meh" part in your original post.

Well SEC fans always tell me the best from the B1G cannot beat a mid-tier SEC team.... Sooo i'm gonna lap this up like a kitten with a bowl of milk. ;-)

BTW, during the FSU game some guy from ESPN (during a recap of the days games) said matter of factly, "Looking at Michigan State's schedule, I don't see them losing another game the rest of the season." That quote should be pinned on the bulletin board in Ohio State's locker room. No mention of the Buckeyes even giving them any trouble.

I dont care, they played for the sec championship. Nuff said.

Comment 21 Sep 2014

This totally makes up for the abysmal B1G showing the second week of the season. Anything to shut the insufferable SEC fans up makes me happy. Dont forget, LSU got pummeled too.

I don't know how you did it, but you just made me laugh. Does that make me a bad person?

Comment 17 Sep 2014

My comment wasn't meant to convey I have given up on these guys. I am confident the offensive line problems will be ironed out, and furthermore I believe this team can win the rest of it's games and still has an outside chance of making the top four (will need the help of other teams faltering). My mind wanders a bit and I just wrote down my thoughts about the future. I need to concentrate on the here and now, I know.

I don't care who you are playing, 6 touchdown passes is a difficult feat. I am all in with JT. That is why I thought about next year, especially if he has a record breaking season as a freshman. It will be very interesting to see how the qb situation plays out.

I can't help but think that it was actually a good omen that Braxton got injured when he did. Looking at our blocking, namely pass protection during the VT game, i think it would have been very possible BM would have been injured. Maybe even more seriously, and would have been s.o.l. when it comes to eligibility for next year. I know this season is barely underway, but i cant wait for next year already with a better seasoned o-line AND BM back.

Speaking of next year, what are people's thoughts on Braxton's return? Will he have to battle JT to regain the starting position? Will JT's performance this season, as it unfolds, have any impact on that decision? Or is Braxton, no matter what happens, the man for next year?

Prolly waaaaaay to early to ask these, but I just cant help myself.

My dear mother gets CBS Sports Net (just found out). Driving up to Columbus Saturday morning "so she can have a visit with the grandchildren." Plus she usually has her fridge stocked with interesting micro brews. What a great mother. Lover her!

BTW, MMan, i sat down and had cocktails with Bobby Morrison while on vacation in Northern Ontario a few weeks ago. He saw my Ohio State shirt and gave me shit. Anyway, interesting and fun to talk with.

I LOVE successful "walk-on" stories. Bobby Olive comes to mind having re-watched the 1988 victory over LSU. He was not  on anyone's radar, not even close. Like gold, some valuable nuggets are hidden deep and where you least expect.
