Alright, I know everyone's thinking about it, but nobody's posting. For those Bowl veterans out there, what is the scalping environment typically like? Am I the only one who thinks the cheapest ticket being $97 is a little ridiculous?
It is that time a year again.

Couldn't think of a motto. Any takers?
The athletic department has sent out an email detailing ticket information for the Sugar Bowl.
Students: up to 8 tickets can be purchased for $97 a piece on mgoblue.com/tickets starting Monday, December 5 at 8:30 am on a first-come first-served basis.
General Public: $125 (Terrace), $145 (Plaza), $155 (Premium Terrace), $175 (Mezzanine Endzone) or $185 (Club) also on mgoblue.com/tickets
Deadline for ordering is Thursday, December 8th at 5pm. All information can be found here: http://www.mgoblue.com/tickets/fbl-bowl-tickets.html?hq_e=el&hq_m=234750&hq_l=2&hq_v=a58e077bf2
Edit: Here is the seating chart for the superdome. Appears that the blue area is either $125 or $155 depending on location. Red area $145. Yellow area endzone $145 or $175 sideline. That's at least my best guess, although it doesn't make that much sense.
Anyone know of flight specials? hotel specials? For the football game being played in New Orleans.
