Dear Phillip,  
Thank you for being a Michigan Football Season Ticket Holder and renewing your seats for the 2014 season.  As a Season Ticket Holder, you receive many exclusive benefits, one of which may include the opportunity to add additional seats to your Season Ticket account when tickets are available.  With this in mind, we wanted to extend this special offer: the ability to order two (2) additional end zone season tickets for the 2014 Football season and the opportuntity to purchase discounted General Admission tickets to the Slippery Rock-Mercyhurst game at the Big House on October 18 for just $10 (reg. $20).

The two (2) additional seats can be purchased for $455 per season ticket by clicking on this link. Please log in to your account with your customer number and password and click on the Additional Football Season Ticket Application.  The deadline to complete your purchase is Tuesday, May 20 at 5 p.m.  Please note, no more than eight (8) season tickets are allowed in one account.  Any amount exceeding this limit will be refunded by the Ticket Office.

These additional season tickets have an End Zone Preferred Seat Donation (PSD) of $75 per seat.  Michigan Athletic Development will follow up via email within a few weeks of the deadline to provide information about making the Preferred Seat Donation.  All season tickets in your account will be held at the Athletic Ticket Office until the Preferred Seat Donation balance is paid. Otherwise, all season tickets will be mailed in late July, early August.

If you made a request for additional season tickets during the renewal process and we were able to fulfill your request, we will be in touch with you within the same time frame to collect payment on your additional seats as well as the Preferred Seat Donation.  If you have any questions regarding this please email mtickets@umich.edu.

I have been a season ticket holder since 1982, this is the first year I did not get a renewal form in the mail. If I would not have seen a blog talking about the renewal deadline I would have missed renewing. Did not know it was being done this way now. Think Brandon has squeezed the cash cow to the limit now, maybe considering not renewing next year and buying them cheaper off the street.

I got the same notification. Things must be getting pretty bad. I wonder if we'll have to worry about our consecutive 100,000 streak in the next couple of seasons.  
 
I've received about 5 renewal thank you e-mails and a whole bunch of other renewal related notifications.  Pretty soon, we're going to see Michigan football billboards up on the freeways saying "Ticket packages as low as $100!".

There won't be any games under 100,000. If they don't sell them some donor will "buy" them and donate them back to the university and they will be given away. Michigan will not allow that streak to end.

Never say never. 
 
These are the following attendance figures at UM's HOME games (capacity 97,237) against Ohio State:
1959  88,804
1961  80,444
1963  Not counting as it was the week after JFK's assassination
1965  77,733 (After winning the Rose Bowl)
1967  64,144
 
A definite trend that undoubtedly led to Bo's hiring.
 
Go Blue!!

And look at those years. back in the 60's. It's no secret that Canham actually sold tickets to the 69 game to Ohio State fans just to fill the stadium-Bo was so mad that he went and told Canham he is to never again pull what he did. Canham smiled and said, "After today Bo, I won't ever have to again."
 
The current streak means far to much to UM to ever let it stop. How far back does it go anyways? UM will "sell" those tickets one way or another.

Agree to a point but there comes a $$$$ breaking point unless the team is superb.  Where supply and demand meet....
