    Game week so UofSC has finally announced its plan for student tickets. Lottery, and if you get a ticket for one game you can't get a ticket to any other games this year :facepalm:

    Can you turn down the ticket and get back in the lottery for later games?

    Good question...not sure. UGA is our last home game so there could be a bunch of people holding out for that one

    Isnt that reasonable? I’m guessing the amount of student tickets is really low compared to requests. Wouldn’t this maximize the number of people that can attend a game?

    It's reasonable given the pandemic but it just sucks...going to games is what turns people into fans for life. Hate to see students miss out on that opportunity. (Yes they are probably better off, har har)

    right but wouldn’t it suck if some kid had terrible luck while another kid got into 3 games? Other than going the ND route, which I think is the best, students were always going to get shorted. Or were you expecting all tickets to go to students, in which case, I agree with you

    The difference is ND only has about 9k undergrads and maybe another 2k at most of faculty, parents and people eligible. A lot easier to space 10k than 30k.

    I doubt USC has 30k requests for student tickets. But either way by limiting to students you’d at least give them a chance at more than one game. This goes for everybody, not just usc. I wish Michigan would do the same but they’re not even having fans

    I was in favor of PSU making it students only if they were going to let fans in.

    I know ADs are trying to recoup as much as possible, I’m just not sure the incremental revenue from limited season ticket holders does much

    The Clemson experience was pretty pristine Saturday. No traffic. No tents. Room for your kids to run around at the tailgate. No lines for bathrooms, entry to stadium, concessions, etc. Plenty of leg room. Seat back marking your spot.

    Wouldn't want it like this forever, but it's pretty refreshing for a season. (outside of the whole pandemic issue)

    while it’s always better safe than sorry, this seems more than necessary but on the other hand I’ve always thought of ND as a disease so I guess it makes sense
