2014 Football season

AlexandreAlexandre Registered User Posts: 24,528 Senior Member
It is obviously way too early to tell how team will do. Appalachian State is way too weak an opponent to gauge how good this team really is. Next week's game at Notre Dame will be more telling. Hopefully, the team will play well and make it 7 wins out of the last 10 against Notre Dame! ;)

    So... my S had his 1st regret for not getting his football season tickets earlier this summer. While he's not a football fan, he's now thinking about buying student tickets for 1 or 2 home games just for the 'social' aspects of it & feeling that school spirit with the rest of his new friends... Any recommendation for which home-game tickets he should consider? (Both my husband & I are not sports fans, so we have no clues as to how big of a deal this whole thing is.) Thanks!

    Also, will he be able to sit with any students he chooses to (e.g.: with his roommate or hallmates) if he buys single student tickets?

    While Penn St is the best game on the schedule, every single game is fun for the students from a social aspect. He should get tickets for the next home game in two weeks and see how he enjoys it. He can likely get a ticket from a friend who can't use theirs or through his classes Facebook page.

    Thanks, @wayneandgarth‌! I'm assuming that student tickets do not have their names printed on them, and hence, are transferable?

    Penn St will definitely be worth getting tickets for, if he can find them, but they'll probably not be cheap. He'll be able to sit with his friends. The new student seating policy was not strictly enforced today at all and the ticket office people said they don't plan on heavily enforcing it.

    If I had to go to one home game this year, it would definitely be against Penn State on October 11. They are the best team we play at home, they have great tradition and it is a night game. Can't ask for much better than that, but good luck getting tickets.

    Otherwise, Minnesota on September 27 and Indiana on November 1 could be interesting as well.

    Thanks, @Fatsquirrel‌! Good to know :)

    Quite disappointed that we let them have 14 points. Was really hoping for 10 or under
  • wayneandgarthwayneandgarth Registered User Posts: 1,804 Senior Member
    @ForeverAlone‌ - Mattison eased up on the pressure later in the game playing it safe. I'm sure he wasn't thrilled how that worked. But consider it garbage time. Really was of no consequence.

    ForeverAlone, 7 of those points, and over 150 yards, gained by Appalachian State was against the second team defense. But it really does not matter. This was not a real test. ASU is a very mediocre team. Michigan is going to have to play a nearly perfect game next week if it wants to leave South Bend with a W.

    @parentof2018 - yes, fully transferable, no issues.

    Are they really not selling student tickets anymore? Why am I still getting emails about buying tickets then? (I don't read them so I legitimately don't know what they say lol)

    Quite agree that it's too early to tell how good this team is, but there were many encouraging signs. Gardner was poised, confident, and accurate in his passing. Funchess with his size, reach, and vertical leap is a nightmare matchup for any DB in the country. OL played well as a unit both in pass protection and in opening gaping holes for RBs, and apart from one play the freshman LT played like a solid upperclassman. Defense was aggressive and creative with strong play by DL, LBs and DBs. Special teams performed well. This was just a tune-up against a clearly inferior opponent, but as a tune-up, it was a good one. So far, Hoke's teams haven't performed well on the road. A win at ND would be a big milestone.

    @romanigypsyeyes student season tickets are no longer being sold. There's still plenty of room left in the student section so they are trying to sell tickets for individual games, which is what all the emails are for. The Penn State game is sold out though.
