The most exciting games on Michigan’s schedule this season won’t be played in Ann Arbor, raising the possibility that the team’s streak of 100,000 plus crowds might be broken.
 
Last season’s 7-6 record along with a home slate schedule consisting of such sub-marquee opponents such as Appalachian State and Maryland has put a serious dent in student season ticket sales.

Maybe it's because I don't live in AA & have only been to one game at the Big House in my lifetime but I can't even stomach the idea of the 100K+ streak ending...whether it's Hoke, RR or whatever!
 
Yes, the home schedule in 2014 is very weak...all the more reason for Hoke to go 7-0...but, personally, I wouldn't care if our opponent was the Mercy Sisters of the Poor! The experience of a fall Saturday in AA supercedes everything else IMO, regardless of opponent, and I know that AD Brandon raising tix prices has been extremely unpopular, especially among students, but I know that if I lived in Michigan I would go to EVERY game!
 
I really can't see the streak ending anytime soon...if it didn't end under RR, which was the most miserable era in modern Michigan history, I can't see it ending under Hoke, who I'm still hoping will turn things around & remain head coach for MANY years!

Worst thing about the Big House IMO is the bathroom situation.  What are there 5 mens' rooms for 60,000 guys?  I went to the hit the head with about 15 seconds left in the first half and made it back to my seat with about 7 minutes left in the third quarter.

Everyone "thinks" like you. Think the opposite of what you normally do. It amazes (not really) how people haven't figured out to deal with idiots. If you beat them by 5 minutes... you might save 30.

The 100K streak will never end. It's just pathetic that we have commercials for tickets now... there used to be a decade long list for season tickets... I know because my dad used to have them. I looked into buying tickets for the PSU game to take him to a night game... 120$ or so a ticket? Um, no. That's my answer, same thing for Adidas.
