UM Ticket Prices
I just saw an article that says UM single game tickets will be $85 this season for "premium" games (OSU, ND, Nebraska), and $70 for the WMU, EMU, and San Diego State games.

Figuring an average cost of $70 per seat over the season, for, get this, 8 Home Games, UM will make $42 Million on game tickets alone.

Do many WMU fans plan to attend? Will any reduced price tickets be available for WMU fans through the school?

I've been to the big hole twice. UM/MSU in '04 and UM/WMU in '09. I have no desire to ever step foot in that stadium again.

I hope the stadium implodes.

With that said, the new ticket prices are insane, how can they expect the Walverines to pay the rent on their trailer lot?

I paid $51 for the 2001 WMU game and the 2002 WMU game. I also paid $70 to see the Texans-Skins game here in 2010. How times have changed.

RE: UM Ticket Prices
sadly, with more disposable income being spent on tickets, wal-marts in the ann arbor area will suffer a drastic reduction in sales.

RE: UM Ticket Prices
There's always scalpers outside of Michigan games. I've heard if you wait until 5-10 minutes before gametime, for non-conference games, you can pay as little as $20.00. I just hate cutting it that close. I did this at MSU this year,and I never did get in. I had no idea that the WMU/MSU opener was going to be that popular of game. The year before, when we played there in November, I paid $5.00 for a $49.00 ticket a 1/2 hour before kickoff.
