    This is very arrogant


    Looks like I've seen one of my last games in Ohio Stadium, this is absurd, especially in this economy? wtf are these guys thinking

    and yet they'll still sell out every single game....it's not arrogance to tell the truth about the demand for tickets.

    I am definitely one of those people who feels I am getting priced out of attending games at this point. :(

    But, there will always be 100,000+ in Ohio Stadium to take my place...

    That 60-70" screen is looking like it may come to fruition in the near future....

    I can't wait to hear the ESPiN announcers talking about how quiet the stadium is when it has just the folks who can pay the cash and sit on their arse the whole game.....

    I dunno, with the way the economy is going, I don't think it's a forgone conclusion they'll sell out if they raise it

    That's why the scalpers are able to get $400 for single seats at some games.

    It'll still sell out.

    for the big games, yes, but against Buffalo? no

    OSU really struggled to sell out against Miami, UCF, and UAB this year

    Bet you're wrong.

    Yet there were no tickets available when I went to buy them. Just because people didn't show up or buy them from the scalpers doesn't mean the tickets weren't sold.

    I saw them for sale on ticketmaster (single seats) the day before the game

    Wasn't there some mention of tiered ticket pricing depending upon the quality of the opponent? I thought that had also been talked about.

    buckeyesin07 Veni. Vidi. Vici.

    Bingo. If people don't like it, then they can send a message and not go. If enough people don't go, prices will come back down.

    Exactly right

    ... and this is why. When the after-market makes it quite clear that the demand for tickets supports higher prices; who should make the money: the university or the scalpers? That's really the only valid question here.

    The proposed increase in prices includes highly increased prices for "premium" games and more modest increases for other games. This is a change that is long overdue and will put a great deal of money in the University's pocket rather than in the scalpers' pockets.
