    Any other students give up?

    I received texts from a few friends saying they gave up on trying to get in after waiting for an hour+. Anyone else have this issue?

    Go raise hell at the ticket office. You paid for a ticket, the least they can do is make it standing room only.

    Nope, our ticket package states we can be turned away.

    Re: Any other students give up?

    they're turning away people with tickets and/or season tickets? Students with season tickets? That is a bad, bad move.

    Don't want to sound stupid, but how can they do that? Did they sell more tickets than they had seats?

    They oversold the student section. Our package CLEARLY stated that they had the right to turn people away.

    Yes, but only for one game the whole year has this been an issue.

    This just seems wrong. Instead of turning them away, make it "standing room only" and let them fill in when old people don't show up before tip.

    They oversold student tickets. What sucks is that there are students that have been to every game this year that won't get to experience tonight's game while there are students that chose to show up tonight only.

    Yea, son says they turned a lot of students away. He got there three hours early and is in second to top row. He's afraid a friend of his (female) has a concussion from getting slammed against the wall, she's nauseous but pupils are reactive.

    that's what I would be ****** about. Unless they expect a complete sell-out, they should let the kids sit somewhere else.
