It appears that ridiculous ticket price increases and seat licenses are NOT the brainchild of Dave Brandon (as much as we would like to believe). There is a story on Eleven Warriors about the history and rise in ticket and PSD costs through the years.
While Ramzy gets some of his facts wrong on how PSDs and ticket prices are "subsidized" by the government, he does make a few good points. It is interesting to note that the 2014 game between Michigan and Ohio will run $150 each. This is up from $70 two years ago.
Interesting read. I didn't find a single bad word about Gene Smith. He apparently can gouge the Buckeye fans at will while collecting his bonuses for National Championships from a wrestler has probably never met.
