Returning Student Football Ticket Sales

<p>Glad to hear that. I thought the new system sounded like a good idea and it appears that it was. </p>

<p>Hopefully they'll keep it in place for the coming years and we won't have the problems like some experienced in the past.</p>

<p>Just picked up last week CW, so I missed this story. It does a lot to explain the new ticket sales system.</p>

<p>“Participants in each bracket will have close to a 90 percent chance of receiving tickets...”

<p>So...it looks like ...if you snooze, you lose. </p>

<p>Yes, it all went smooth as silk!</p>

<p>Yeah with a 90% chance you have to be really late to the party to not get tickets.</p>

<p>Though reading the comments following the article lead me to believe The University needs to step up it's reading comprehension classes. It amazes me how college students can't comprehend something so simple.</p>

<p>I can sorta agree that maybe upperclassmen should have a 100% chance of getting tickets. With the current controls in place, it's really hard to get tickets just to re-sell them at a marked up value, so most people who are signing up for tickets want to go to at least a few games. Being one of approximately 10% of interested upperclassmen (assuming, of course, every interested person attempted to purchase tickets) to not get tickets must suck.</p>

<p>FWIW, there was a graphic on the print edition of the CW with the article I linked in post #42 that had the distribution of ticket by hour category:</p>

<p>0-30 hrs - 3,640
31-40 hrs - 3,640
61-90 hrs - 2,730
91+ hrs - 1,560
grad - 1,430</p>

<p>This was based on your status at the end of fall 2009 semester, I believe.</p>
