the same as everyone else?, and how many tickets are put aside for this special class of people? Also I wonder how many of these tickets are actually used by them.....
Wait till.they startbpaying the players ... Tix prices.will.skyrocket
Ill be watching on tv. Price gouging sucks. Whats sad is how many kids are going to miss gameday at The Shoe at some point. Many people will just be priced out. People will pay when theyre winning but when the day comes when we go 7-6/8-5 again, its going to be a tough sell.
I think they should get a reduced price BUT if they or any other lower priced ticket payer would sell their tickets then they should have to pay the delta between the lower cost and face value to the university.
They are about 10 bucks cheaper per ticket. You have to have worked there for 3 years before you are eligible, then it is based on years of service and job title.......and yes, the actual employees go to the game, if employees sell the tickets they must be exchanged to a non faculty ticket and the difference in pay is charged to the faculty member before they can scalp them
Ohio State.......our nuts will kill you
As the saying goes...money talks BS walks. I have belonged to a booster club for many years now (and supported tOSU sports) when I travel with them to a bowl games we have seats in the corner of the end zone while "MONEY" people who have never seen a OSU game in their lives set between the 30's. Is this fair? Absoultely not but it is how life works. $$$$$$ says it ALL.
It's a tough sell now as far as I can tell. The truth is that I saw quite a few empty seats last season when I went to UAB. One of my friends got a ticket from a scalper for half face value on the walk to the stadium from Eddie George's.
Crowd was uninspired, sitting on their hands. OSU gave us little to be excited about in the first half, but the truth is that it was the worst environment I had experienced in the Shoe ever, including the time that I attended games more regularly when I was a student and resided in C-bus (mid 80' through early 90's). And that was prior to stadium expansion.
Even with our coach, coming off an undefeated season, and a likely pre-season top 3 ranking, it is hard to get excited for Buffalo or FAMU. Increasing ticket prices isn't smart. There will be empty seats next year in all liklihood.
I, for one, will not be making my annual pilgrimage to C-bus and instead will plan a trip to Chicago to see the Northwestern game. I'd guess the tickets I probably would have otherwise got stuck with (through the Alumni Association lottery) have a chance of going unsold. Or, whoever gets stuck with them through the Alumni Association will sell them on-line at a reduced price.
I resent the decision of the Board of Trustees and E. Gordon Greed to raise prices like this. TOSU is shameless in its institutional arrogance. They think their brand is so great that there is no price that people are unwilling to pay.
