Martin letter announces Go Blue Pass

As a member of the faculty and staff of the University of Michigan, you can be proud of the overall academic and athletic excellence displayed by our Michigan student-athletes during the 2000–01 year. Our national excellence was displayed with a fourth-place finish in the prestigious Sears Cup competition that rewards overall success in both men’s and women’s sports. This represents an impressive third top-five national finish in four years.

We could not achieve great accomplishments on the playing field without tremendous support behind our teams. To this end, we are pleased to again offer a special complimentary 2001–02 Go Blue Pass to all University of Michigan Faculty and Staff members. This pass provides complimentary admission to the following ticketed home athletic events:

  • Volleyball

  • Women’s Basketball

  • Women’s Gymnastics

  • Men’s Gymnastics

  • Wrestling

  • Softball

  • Baseball

    The Go Blue Pass must be picked up in person at the Michigan Ticket Office (1000 S. State St.) by Nov. 1. Schedules for all Michigan teams are available at

    In addition to the Go Blue Pass, I would also like to encourage you to take advantage of your faculty-staff discount (10%) in ordering Michigan Men’s Basketball tickets. Tommy Amaker, our new head coach, promises to bring new excitement and energy this winter to Crisler Arena. Applications are available at

    I thank you for your continued support of Michigan Athletics and we look forward to another successful athletic season for the Maize & Blue.

    Bill Martin, director of athletics
