    $30-45 Thursday if you can scalp well.
    $80-100 Friday min. if seeds hold true.

    Re: Big 12 Scalping

    Will it be hard to get 3 seats together? Or, should be just buy the cheapest seats we can find, and then just find some open seats to sit together.

    I'm thinking the latter. I've been to this event a few years ago, but of course we were playing on the first day.

    Get the cheapest seats you can find. Since we are 2nd game in the session you can find open seats from people leaving from 1st game. May be harder to do Friday, but shouldn't be a problem at all Thursday.

    What do you mean by scalping well? Just not paying $100 to the first scalper?

    Yeah. There will be scalpers trying to make a killing, and there will be scalpers just trying to unload tickets.

    Yeah try not to get them from the resellers. Find an older couple that are A&M or Tech fans whose team should be out and you can get them cheap.

    Re: Big 12 Scalping

    What about scalping an all session pass on thursday from someone whose team has lost? Any ideas on prices for this?

    Friday will be the toughest ticket of the tournament.

    An upset of one of those would help the friday ticket situation, that's for sure (and also open a path for us if its mizzou)... though at the same time i'd almost rather play mizzou than have to watch Keiton Page again.
