Most of the tickets are already sold - many to MU STHs, so those who already bought tickets are the ones who stand to reap the jackpots in the second hand market.  To directly answer your question, I don't know who makes the $$ on this for the original ticket sales.

Unfortunately no one makes money in the second hand ticket market anymore other than the resellers.  Most people wait to last minute to purchase when the floor drops out of the market. With all the fees, it’s hard to price high enough to break even.

My best friend during the time I lived in Minneapolis was a professional scalper. That's what he did for a living. He'd get to the Metrodome for a Vikings game at about 9 a.m., buy as many tickets as he could from fans with extra seats at prices that he believed would let him make a profit, and then sell them for more. Did the same for Twins, Timberwolves, Gophers and North Stars (and later Wild). He always wanted the teams to win because he was a fan, of course, but mostly because winning team = bigger profits. He had business cards made up and everything, had quite a few regular clients. Scalping was illegal but the cops mostly looked the other way; he'd give some of them tickets every now and then.

He died about 10 years ago. He'd have hated to have seen his "profession" basically blown up.

But as a consumer, it is awfully easy to buy tickets now. I thought about going to the Hornets-Pistons game last week. A Wednesday night game against one of the NBA's worst teams -- upper level center-court tickets were available on Vivid Seats for $4 the day before the game. Four dollars! The fees were probably double that.

Where we sit now is irrelevant. All about projecting where we’ll be at the end of the year.

Minnesota will be listed in all these “as of today” brackets - who cares? They won’t be there. We know that.

Likewise, MU may fall out when they get into the post-DePaul games & lose a bunch. But, they can climb back with the soft end of the year slate.

As of today no Matta.

They obviously have plenty of opportunities in the B12, but Texas's resume is a little weak right now.
