    Stupid student break tickets.

    I am currently a student at ISU. I bought the 250$ all sports pass which does not include all break games. So me and a friend bought tickets outside the door and wore our cyclone alley T-shirts and they won't let us in cyclone alley saying that you have to have purchased specific break tickets prior to the game. Seems really stupid to me to keep students out. It's 20 minutes till tip off and the front row in both sides of the student section is empty. Wouldn't you want fans to show up? I know at least 4 friends that would be at this game if it was included.

    On the other hand, 90% of the students are gone. You want to sell tickets to people who are likely to actually show up, i.e., people who buy tickets specifically for that game.

    People don't buy those tickets anyways. It's empty. Students should get those spots always.

    Well if you assume what I say is true, then all they need are the equivalent of 11% of those sections to be sold for it to make good sense. I don't think you can say no one ever buys those tickets. If you want the seat that badly go buy a ticket for today. Problem solved.

    Re: Stupid student break tickets.

    My fiancee and I would also be at the game if it were included. They did sell tickets for break games for $5 a game I believe (not sure if thanksgiving break games were included). Looking back I wish we would've bought them, but we weren't sure if we would be in town or not. The thing that bothers me is that student basketball tickets cost more than the corner season tickets, but they include less games. Not that big of a deal to me but I can see how that would **** some students off
