    Scalping at the Jack?

    After the Texas win, things become more interesting. All of a sudden, several people may want to attend that had not planned to attend. Scalpers may have some good luck.

    The KU game will see several tickets available hillside as the KU fans probably will not follow. However, weather is nice and no TV signal yet known. Scalping may be prevalent and prices low due to quantity.

    Now, the Nebby game should be very well attended and close to sold out. If the weather is nice and Nebby wins Saturday, Nebraska fans will be busting their chops to come watch their last game at the Jack. Scalper prices should trend higher.

    If Missouri rolls through the competition, this could be a huge game for MO fans to suddenly show up. Scalper prices should trend up. This will be senior day.

    Hillside tickets may be a hot item in the last two home games.

    What do you think? More walkons buying scalper tickets or hillsides than normal for the last two games?

    Is there a way to see the number of tickets sold so far?

    Locals will buy the hillsides, out of towners use the scalpers. I went to HS with the three main scalpers, I even did it for a while in high school. They just made careers out of it. That was the general rule of thumb.

    What do you think would be a good price range be for the tickets to KU vs. Nebby/MO games? Just wondering.

    I'd buy hillsides for KU. They aren't going to bring anyone to the game and you could easily move over and find seats in that SW corner. NU, you're going to have to scalp and for decent seats, you are certainly looking at $80-$100 a ticket. MU it depends on how ISU has done and if Mizzou is still unbeaten. I don't believe that the game will be sold out...I'd just buy single game tickets in the stands for that one.

    If we win big this weekend I think it'll cost ya a c-note to get in the game through a scalper, might even cost that already since it's going to be the last meeting of the teams. The weather is going to drive the MU prices I believe. If it's nice it'll probably be about 75-80, if bad weather you can probably get them for around 30. I'm no expert, these are just personal opinions.

    Re: Scalping at the Jack?

    KU will be a buyers market outside the stadium...all the extra mini pack tickets floating around, and extra hillsides getting sold off by people. There will be an abundance of tickets out there.

    I believe the attendance will be good, but the sellers may have to lower their prices a bit to compete. its n ot crazy to think you can quickly find a ticket in the area of 20-25 bucks.

    That wont get you a great seat, but you're in the stadium for that.

    If you can't find a ticket below $20 for this weekend you suck at buying. They will be all over the place. Even for Nebraska I wouldn't pay over $50. Of course, this is for single tickets, not a group where you need seats together.
