The whole ticket issue will be interesting as the Jan. 9 BCS title game approaches. Two rabid fan bases living close to New Orleans will create chaos.
Alabama received a 17,000-ticket allotment to sell and distribute how they choose. (The Superdome seats 76,000-plus).
Here’s the plan the school has to use that.
Students: 12% (2,040 – band comes out of this)
Faculty/staff: 5% (850)
Lettermen: 10% (1,700)
Internal use: (2,600) estimated (player families, coaches, president, board, university staff)
Donors: 57% (9,690) estimated
The school said Sunday it was no longer accepting requests and will be mailing responses to those on the list Wednesday.
Good luck finding something cheap from a scalper, otherwise.
