MS State RETURNS tickets for Egg Bowl

45 posts in this topic

ole Miss is now 3,500 tickets short of a sell out

Maybe CBS did the right thing passing on this game...

WTF y'all - this has to be one of the most compelling Egg bowls in years...

@@dcbl, Ole Miss is offering a 2 for 1 deal while jacking up prices for the tickets offered to MSU. That's why these tickets were returned. Our fans have sold out our stadium for three straight years so I have no doubt we'll bring much more than our allotment to Oxford.

I appreciate your effort to get us trashing each other some more...... We have already been through this in the Official Game Thread.

Oh, the horror!

Everyone I know are picking them up for cheaper than what they were charging us. And better seats. It's not like we won't have anyone there. We will actually have a pretty good crowd.

Nice try, though.

OK - I just saw that headline and thought is was weird for 2 reason:

1 - I thought SEC schools typically gave conference opponents 10,000 tix (as opposed to the 6,500 MS State asked for)

2 - could not believe that they would not all be taken; especially 3,500 than they could ask for

I am 99% sure that we give 10,000 to everyone including GA Tech if they want them...

did not know that the rebel bears were jerking y'all around on the price

I'm fairly certain the home team denotes how many tickets to be given at first. I think the visitors could ask for more if available.

Plus you have folks like me who wait for the last second because they can usually find free tickets from friends

there has got to be a league minimum, I just always understood that UGA always did 10K & that we pretty much get 10K for any road game from other SEC schools

The tickets are the same price they have been ALL YEAR

Buying a ticket from the MSU ticket department: $85 for nosebleeds.

Buying it from Ole Miss: $75 for a premium seat or a two for one in the endzone.

Tell me why I would buy it from MSU?

Ticket smack is weak. Especially when we've sold out every ticket for three years now and we set Gator Bowl and MCB records the last two years.

Bama is going to beat that UGA ass into oblivion.

UGA also had better watch out for that Merchant school they play this week.

if the ticket office had charged 4,000 per ticket, we would probably be returning them all. why would our ticket office be charging more? are they forcing us to go after ole miss tickets?

It's what Ole Miss charges our ticket office. Our ticket office isn't going to take a loss and sell them cheaper when they aren't making any money from them in the first place.

If I have to buy a ticket, which I seriously doubt I do, then I'll go through a scalper right before kickoff. Texas game scalpers wanted $125 and I ended up getting one for $60....which is less than face. Plus it's fun :lanekiffin:ing around with those dumbass scalpers. A drunk hobby of mine if you will

Hogan are you serious? We set a lanekiffin.gifing record at the last Gator Bowl. Don't act like Vandy is going to bring more fans than us.

Now I've seen it all. Even if we lose this weekend, Vandy isn't gonna slide above us.

Wonder if USC beats ND and there are two SEC teams in the National Championship game?

If the Black Bears win and Vandy wins, the Dores deserve to go above State!

The Dores in no way will go above State. There will be two SEC teams in the BCS regardless of what happens to the Irish.

I said both teams in the final game from the SEC- like last year-Bama and LSU.

Each team would move up one spot- like State to Atlanta and Vandy to Jacksonville.

hell, we beat the attendance record in vandy's home town bowl....one that vandy had attended 3 seasons earlier after a bowl drought that dated back to jake cuttler.

fwiw benny, the attendance record for the music city was 69 k for tennessee vs unc. our game was 55 k and 77 k for the mcb and gb respectively.
