Who wants to watch State?
MSU, again the great national draw.
If Sparty fans are wondering why they won't get a BCS bid if they lose...look no further.
UW. You mean if UW wonders why, right? They're the ones who didn't sell out this time.
Yeah but we really don't want to be realistic and believe that. I hope they sold 15000 tickets. Shouldn't their alum and fans be buying out the Wisconsin tickets and the general public too? It's going to be a sad site in there. Two boring programs with no real personality.
I follow someone on Twitter who is a Wisconsin fan (in addition to other stuff which is why I follow him) and he retweeted that the Wisconsin tickets for the championship game sold out in a very short amount of time. Don't recall what it was, and I will try to find it.
How about you get paid 75 bucks to go??? (Assuming this is legit)
Must tolerate loud noise and crowds. Must have red or dark green casual clothing to wear. Event will last all evening on Saturday night. All ages, sexes, races, etc.
Please use contact e-mail. Event planner will follow-up with exact details on location for staging of seat-fillers (additional information and instruction provided there).
It would almost be worth it to go see MSU murdered.
Almost? I'd go to pretty much any game that I can think of if I had free tickets, but getting paid to go? I'm there. Unfortunately, I don't live close enough (though I doubt that ad is real).
Should be a pretty good game if I had the time I would go see it just to be part of the 1st B1G championship game.
State goes to the Outback if they lose. And we'll have a Rose Bowl filled with Oregon fans if they win.
Should have put the game in the only regional major metropolis. Soldier Field would be packed.
I agree. I would think people would go just for an excuse to hang around downtown Chicago. Even if you're an MSU fan, and you think you're going to get killed, you might go just to have some fun. Not sure how much fun going to Indy would be.
IMO Indy is nicer than Chi. Everything is in walking distance, dont need a train. Cheap rooms, cheap parking, bars open until 3am.
Been for a few NFL games and its always fun. And just feels cleaner than Chi.
If I'm not mistaken, MSU has sold out their ticket allotment but Wisconsin has not. Not too surprising given the distance from Madison.
Link or it didnt happen. I cannot believe that sparty sold all their tickets. They cant sell out a home game of only 80,000.
Well according to the story below Wisconsin was given an allotment of 15,000 tickets, I doubt they would give one school more than the other so MSU probably only had to sell 15,000. There's probably 15,000 diehard/Alums from MSU that want to watch their team play 3 hours from East Lansing.
I think MSU will have a good showing. It is not uncommon (even in the SEC) for tickets to go for below face value in championship games.
Here is a link.
decent priced Sugar Bowl tickets. $200 for bad seats right now.
Lots of misguided jokes here. MSU sold out their ticket allotment, Whisky did not. Both schools are now trying to sell the UW leftovers.
but thankfully I was only able to buy one ticket. Losing money on 1 ticket is better than losing money on 4 tickets.
#HALOL I was pissed at first because my Spartan side of the family hit me up for my tickets and I gave them the family discount of face value...but now I look like a genius!
or at least the main point of this article is that the early sales of tickets to the Non-Spartans and Non-Badgers are now being dumped on the market.
It's easy to search for, but I think when Brian wrote up his opinion on the Championship Game location he was for selecting one of the particpating teams to be the host. I'm thinking the theory of picking the location early so that the event can be promoted is not quite as successful a plan as everyone imagined. I guess this game isn't quite as prominent as the Super Bowl yet.
They're now down to $9.99. Wait until Friday, they might be down to $2.00.
Yeah, probably why the BCS doesn't care too much for sparty. Always and forever boring and little brother.
Imagine if only we had beaten MSU and taken their spot...that stadium would be sold out probably. Because you know, we actually have aumni that have "real" jobs who can afford tix...
any funny sign recommendations?
The problem with neutral site conference championship games is that both teams will be going to a major bowl game shortly thereafter. That means fans are expected to travel and stay overnight for the CCG and then again for a bowl game. It's asking a lot, especially in a down economy.
The B10 should closely watch how the P12's CCG goes the next couple of years. In the P12, the CCG is hosted by the team with the best record. I realize the Midwest is cold in December and all of our CFB stadiums are outdoors, but the CCG still would easily sell out every year if it was held at the home field of one of the participants. And that is despite the fact that the most likely locations (i.e., Michigan, PSU, OSU, Nebraska, Wisconsin) all have significantly larger seating capacities than any NFL stadium in the B10 footprint. It would also further strengthen demand for season tickets for most of the schools, because season ticketholders would be entitled to first rights to CCG tickets (similar to what is done in MLB, NFL, etc).
