I bought Badger FB season tickets this year. Didn’t really want to go this weekend, tried to sell my tickets, but the get in price on stubhub is 1/3 of the ticket price from UW. 2nd biggest game (supposedly) within the B10 this year.

Ya, I see UW is using the marquee pricing for PSU & Michigan games this season. I saw $95 in the upper corner & $130 near the Fieldhouse. Wow!! Explains why you can get a deal on Stubhub.

Those dollar values seem OK. I might consider going to a UW football game if they paid me $95-$130 to go.

And they'd pay me extra to get me to actually watch the game, right?

Why? 

A summary of UW football at Camp Randall:

Let's get drunk and show up late, entire fanbase complains about officiating following each play, yawn, Jump around, yawn, let's leave early and get drunk.

Student section maybe. A good seat at Camp Randall is a great college football experience. Better than a Packer game at Lambeau IMO. But there are too many bad seats at CR compared to Lambeau.

I have close friends that are graduates of Michigan, Army and Northwestern. Thought it would be easier to just buy the seats and sell the rest or take my kids (not happening now with their vaccine status and I’m not interested in debating that). We also live 2.5 miles from Camp Randall. Then it turns out that I could have bought a 3 pack of just those games. Oooof. But it turns out, I can buy basketball single games early too to see if Brad Davison can be the first badger in 40 years to lose to MU 4 times in his career.

Love it! This past season's win was one of the best ever with Justin's game winner. The looks on the faces of the rodents was priceless. Hope we top it with another win AND Davison getting ejected.

I have attended dozens of games at both Camp Randall and Lambeau.  What's great about Lambeau is that there are few truly bad seats.  But if you have a good seat at CR, the atmosphere of a high level college game is way better than an NFL one IMO.

Ohio State has been charging over $200 for the Penn State game and less than a week before the Oregon game had over 10k tickets left at $160 apiece. They had to drop the prices to make sure to get 100k in the Shoe to watch the Ducks slap them around. The cheapest ticket for OSU at Michigan is $160, and that seat is located somewhere in Ypsilanti. Why pay those prices (plus parking) when you can sit at home, watch on a 4K big screen, and drink your own beer?

I'll take a college game over a regular season pro game any day.

I get staying at home for football. Big screen, no line to the bathroom, etc. Yet, being at the games with the bands and feeling the roar of the crowd can't be beat as well.

Anyone know how the student ticket sales went this year?   Curious how demand is after the year off and all that's happened in the last couple years.

The new format went well. Almost sold out.

Upperclassmen who previously bought student tickets got to buy their tickets first. The following day upperclassmen who didn't previously buy student tickets got to buy their tickets. Underclassmen were allowed to buy their tickets the day after that.

Curious, with seniors, juniors, etc going one after another .. are they buying general admission seats like before?   Or not?

I remember it was GA for the BC, I guess I didn't pay attention when we moved to the Chaluparena.

Crean insisting upon GA for students was a brilliant move. As a freshman and sophomore in the 90's it was discouraging to get tickets for Row X  in the corner of the upper level as a student, especially when the lower level wasn't full and the ushers were super strict about letting people down there. Let the diehards be as close as possible.

Mkay .. so what's the point of letting seniors purchase first?    Fear they'd run out of GA tickets?

Yes.
Marquette has every year sold out before the season started in the student section at FF.

Yup.  Never understood why that was policed so strongly during the Deane period.  I had some friends with lowers and we'd pass around and reuse the same couple tickets to show the ushers multiple times in order to get the full group down there.  Led to some awkward moments during a give-away once when I was holding a stub which won a free trip to Vegas.  Wasn't my ticket.  Gave it to the guy who helped me get down there but turns out the stub wasn't his either.  Ended up a mess that's too long to explain here.
