    Scalping tix at ISU??

    I have a few friends that are coming into town for the game who need tix. Currently there strategy is to scalp shortly before the game and were asking me if this is a good way to go about it....I have no idea because I've had season tix for many years and have never tried this before.

    Anybody try this and have good results outside the Jack? What kind of rate do you think they could get this weekend? Thx for any responses. Go Clones!

    never had an issue getting tickets for a game......depending on how hard you look will depend on the price you pay though. the "pros" are on the north side of the stadium out in the street area (premium prices though).

    You're going to have to pay for them this week. Last week you could get them for 5-20 but I bet it is closer to 50-70 this week. A buddy had to pay 80 for a ticket to the Iowa game last year. This will be similar.

    Re: Scalping tix at ISU??

    When I have my daughters with me, I literally have people hand tickets to me when we are walking around. My brother tried walking around with my 4 year old. Less than 2 minutes and he was given a freebie. Kids are the answer.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    AT this point in my life, when I do the cost/benefit analysis my conclusion is still to buy tickets, forgo children. Maybe later though.

    Just borrow one while you try to find a ticket

    Just make sure you borrow one early enough to get out of jail in time for the game!
