    Drake game tickets

    Maybe this is premature on my part, but I've been curious this week about buying tickets to the MBB game at Drake. The time works for me. I checked their website looking for information, and it says that none is forthcoming until 10/26.

    Does anyone know about what Drake has charged before for tickets to this game?

    Re: Drake game tickets

    $25 - $30, they usually bump prices up for Iowa State or Iowa.

    I thought they would.

    So, $25-30 would be the bumped-up price?

    Being a Drake grad student, I get in for free! First game I'll make it to at the Knapp Center. We need to break this streak.

    That's awesome!

    I think this is a good year for us to break it!

    Re: Drake game tickets

    Seems to me last time the charged upper 30's to 40's. Not sure.

    $25- 30 seems low, but I can't really recall.

    One tip - if you get tickets in the upper level, get them higher. That dang railing stinks. I'd say at least row 5 or 6, and up. Don't get row 2 pulled up and think you're getting a good seat.

    We're well acquainted with the top part of basketball facilities. We always end up sitting high up there.

    Exactly. The Knapp Center is really really small anyway, so sitting way up is bad. There is a reason people dont want to sit way down low in the upper level. It is terrible. I made that mistake last time we played there.

    We bought tickets ahead of time, but there was plenty of room to move around and sit where ever I wanted.

    Ouch. I was 100% going until this. That's gouging to say the least. I was expecting $20 tops since ISU charges $10 or $15 for them.

    Is your Sherpa familiar with the Knapp Center?

    Wow. That's an outrageous fee to charge for a game in what is more or less a high school gym. I work out in the Knapp Center on a regular basis. The indoor track is the floor that they roll out the upper level bleachers over. The entire place is roll out bleachers.

    I remember on the 1st day of law school when the Dean told us they had "Big 10 quality athletic facilities"...

    I hope that's not what they want to charge. This one is such an easy road trip that I'd love to make it.

    Yup. I'm just hoping I don't have a final in the morning or something like that. That would really suck.
