    UGA needs Oregon’s drug policy. Harsh penalties of counseling and education for first two fails.

    It took a few days for the lunatic fringe of Alabama to realize they didn’t need those tickets any longer. The real judge of the interest in this game will come from the TV ratings, not the average ticket price. I hope when they finally get the playoff “fixed” they require the host city’s bid to include 15-20K tickets held for each team’s fans and not allow the ticket pimps and corporations to put a hold on them. Sad to see what this has done to the atmosphere of the Super Bowls, although it is a blessing to not see 40K adults wearing team jerseys, or going topless, in the stands.

    It’s not like the NFL where you have playoff games at home stadiums until the Super Bowl. Within a couple of years, the semifinal playoff games may look exactly like the crowds in other bowl games. Wouldn’t that be interesting?

    A family of four could easily spend over $15,000 within two weeks going to playoff games. Don’t forget the conference championship game the prior month. Tack on another $3,000-$5,000. Getting pretty expensive to be a fan these days. Seems way easier to sit home and watch it in HD with Mute on.

      If you assume a travel group size of 15-20K fans for the big schools and 40-50K fans that are season ticket holders, then add the local alums in the areas of games, there should be plenty of demand for those tickets. One family doesn’t have to attend all games to make it work.

    Alas, between the McGarity persona (albiet avant Pruitt) and the NCAA President Gollums in their Ivory towers – one might conceivably think that the love of money might be a character defect in academia.

    Seriously, I hope that Oregon offense runs tOSU all the way to Plano.
