So, I'm thinking about taking my wife and three kids to the game. I've only been to one game at Crisler in the past decade (OSU two years back), and that was with some friends who bought a package.
This would be 5 tickets (maybe one block of two, one of three). Not being in the 1%, I have no intention of shelling out anything like the kind of money I'm seeing right now on StubHub. I also checked the MGoSpreadsheet, but saw nothing there. The nine-year old would love to be there, but would not appreciate a $60 ticket any more than she would a trip to a sports bar.
Watching the Purdue game on TV, there appeared to be a lot of empty seats... but I know this week was Spring Break and it was Purdue. This is the final game, it's IU, a top 5 opponent, and the students will be back in town. My questions for the Knowledgeable then are:
1. Am I likely to find people selling tickets in blocks of 2,3, or hey, even 5?
2. Is the best place and time to find them in front of Crisler at 3:30 on Sunday? Or is there another option besides $150 single tickets on Stubhub?
3. Would it be unlikely to suppose that I could get those tickets for less than $200 total?
Thanks for your thoughts! It's an hour drive to get there, and I'd rather not find myself outside Crisler Arena at 4:15 in the rain with four angry females staring at me in outraged disbelief....
Wow, I clearly know nothing about demand for tickets! Thanks to everyone who posted for the education - I don't think I've ever seen .the board so unanimous on a thread. Call me an educated fool, now; we'll go somewhere with a couple big screen tvs and fried appetizers and have a good time for under a hundred bucks.
