[UPDATE 8/26/2014 from Seth:]
While the ticket spreadsheet was awesome for its time, we've known for some time that it's subject to abuse, and more likely to be damaged the more our community has grown. We've been on the lookout for some way to add a layer of security that's still free on both ends. Now we have that!
Go here: http://www.tiqiq.com/sellerdirect and sign in with your Facebook account. Then list your tickets, put MGoBlog somewhere in your description if you like, then copy the link to your tickets and paste on the spreadsheet.
Nobody's forced to use that system. This is just a protection for sellers so their price can't be changed, and for buyers so they know they're dealing with a real human with a name and pictures of their cat.
To go along with the 'more informative headlines' theme, this thread will hopefully get set as a sticky. I have made a spreadsheet listing all people selling and looking for tickets.. http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Avnckx2kNv9GdGVPQXBQMDZQdFJ4RTJS... Basketball season is here.. I've started up a new sheet in the document for basketball. Ive made the permissions open to anyone to edit, so we'll try the trust method for a while until someone abuses. Feel free to post what you are looking for or selling. If it gets abused, I'll go back to the method of requiring someone to email me and then posting.
Now that I'm getting old enough that using my old student ID is no longer plausible, I'm finally venturing out of the student section and into the world of buying game tickets on StubHub. Collective wisdom of MGoBlog: is it generally better to buy early on StubHub, or wait until the game approaches? I've been monitoring Hawaii tickets over the past few days, and they seem to only be getting more sparse and expensive. Does it depend on the game, or is there a general trend?
Thinking of making the drive down Wednesday, does anyone have any experience/idea of when tickets are gonna be cheapest? At the moment, all of the reseller sites (stubhub, etc.) have just a few ridiculously priced tickets. Face value is $30 if you buy nosebleeds from the NCAA, but with a probably pretty low demand, anyone know if there's anywhere cheaper to buy them?
Michigan has announced ticket prices for the 2016 football season.
|Central Florida||Sept. 10||$55||$65||$75|
|Penn State||Sept. 24||$99||$110||$125|
|Illinois (Homecoming)||Oct. 22||$75||$90||$105|
I was surprised to see the price of Penn State and Wisconsin. I guess they're the best home games we have.
Compare this year with 2015:
|Oregon State||Sept. 12||$80||$90||$100|
|Brigham Young||Sept. 26||$80||$90||$100|
|Northwestern (HC)||Oct. 10||$75||$85||$95|
|Michigan State||Oct. 17||$95||$105||$115|
|Ohio State||Nov. 28||$95||$105||$115|
The repercussions of MSU winning this past Saturday in Columbus have seriously effected prices for The Game on Saturday. Last week tickets in Section 23 were mostly above $700/each. Earlier this morning they were starting at $325/each. I just checked again and you can get some really good seats in Section 23, row 43 for $280 (I am not selling them BTW).
Of course this still beats last year's game against Maryland when I saw seats as low as $37/each in Section 23. We will never see that price again (Harbaugh) but the prices for this weekend are coming down to almost face value (seat + PSL).
MLive had a story yesterday on this that almost seems out of date today:
You have to register an account with PSU athletics, you don't get to see specific seat numbers before you purchase, BUT I was able to pull multiple tickets in the top three price ranges without an issue.
