It is an average of asking prices, not selling prices.   There are several thousand tickets chasing buyers for each game (except for the 562 tickets for the Navy game starting at 3:30am. That's going to be a tough sell.)

// The Forbes article will probably do is attract a lot more tickets into the market and drive those asking price averages down further.  The smart play is to short Notre Dame tickets now....

Jesus, still not one SEC team during the regular season...which means they'll go back to their tradition of not playing any SEC opponents.

No wonder they can afford to give scholarships to illegal immigrants.

Uncle Pooky: but not-for-profit, right?


Not-for-profit doesn't mean that each individual element of an organization has to exactly break even.  If a school makes a profit from the sale of football tickets but uses that money to fund non-revenue athletics (pretty much everything except for football and basketball, though baseball and hockey make money at some schools), to fund research, to fund construction of new facilities on campus, etc, the school is still considered a not-for-profit organization.

Yeah.  Here's the thing.  If I ever get the urge to watch minor league football, I'll drive around the corner and watch OCC play Monmouth College for $30.   Of course, if it's baseball season, I can make the 15-minute trip to Lakewood and watch the Blue Claws play for $20.  I would never consider shelling out $300 for a ticket to watch ANYTHING other than Mila Kunis and Kaley Cuoco in a nude oil-wrestling match.  But hey, that's just me.

It's a heckuva lot cheaper if you get season tickets.

Fun fact: when I applied to the University of Nebraska, the very first piece of correspondence I ever got from them - before they even officially let me know I was accepted - was instructions for how to buy football tickets at student rates.

College football isn't a religion, it's a cult.

notmtwain: It is an average of asking prices, not selling prices. There are several thousand tickets chasing buyers for each game (except for the 562 tickets for the Navy game starting at 3:30am. That's going to be a tough sell.)


It also leaves out how you are able to purchase the tickets in the first place.  I don't remember specifically the numbers but you have to pay a pile of money (err, I mean donation of course) to get on the waiting list and keep paying (donating) that pile of money every year just to stay on the waiting list, while you wait for seats to open up.

Well, when all your home games for the past 50 years have all been sold out you can pretty much charge whatever you want.
