    Football tickets for Sale at MU

    The ISU Athletics page announced that student season tickets would be on sale at the MU today from 11:30-1:30.

    Anyone seen their table? Are they doing some good business today? Running any specials?

    Just curious. My campus time doesn't necessarily include the MU today.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Football tickets for Sale at MU

    I have to say that when I read the thread title, I thought FB tickets were for sale at Missouri, and wondered why that was being posted. :)

    Can somebody tweet or facebook this so it spreads like wildfire? I am not down with the new media outlets.

    Only 45 minutes left. Would have thought they would continue all afternoon.

    I should have said "ISU Athletics Facebook page." Their alert is what tipped me off.

    And I'm with isuaggie. I would have thought this would go longer.

    If I still lived in Ames and had nothing to do, I would volunteer to sit out there all day today and tomorrow. Sadly, I should be working now.

    No kidding. Why not do this all day long?!? It's not like they are running some awesome deal, like buy one season ticket, get one free. They should have been doing this all week long.

    I'd think so too... though it sounds like they're trying to hit the lunch hour when the most people will be in the MU.


    Still a little on the cheap side...

    I think resources are limited as well to keep them there all day.

    They could really only afford an 1.5 hrs to do this? The hell? They should be doing this until 7PM tonight, and until about 2PM tomorrow.

    Re: Football tickets for Sale at MU

    Man, if there was only a place that was very accessible by bus that students could go to buy tickets. Oh wait, it's called the ticket office at the Jacobsen building. It's not like tickets aren't going to be sold after 1:30, it is just that they didn't want to sit in the union all afternoon because that place is dead after lunch.

    They should have been right in front of the bookstore during textbook purchase time. That would have created more traffic when the freshmen's parents were still here to buy them.

    Someone mentioned yesterday not being able to purchase online. I don't understand that at all.

    I think you are underestimating the laziness of college students. The vast majority of students will not go out of their way to buy season tickets, but when they are placed in front of their face, they will buy.
    While the ticket office is just a couple of bus stops away, its takes more time than a lot of students want to do. However, you throw in a couple of tickets stands on campus around the MU or Library, and they will get them because they don't have to go out of their way to buy them.

    When I was in school, we had to go down to CY Stephens to get in the lottery for BBall tickets. Didn't have a problem getting students there then.

    And I had to walk 5 miles uphill, both ways, in the snow to get to school Now get off my lawn!.


    In all seriousness though, what would it have cost to put 2 student staffers at a table all day to sell tickets? About $200. But if you call them interns, suddenly you reduce the price to free!
