Actually .. no they sent a second email out on Sunday evening stating that we should know something by today. Just wanted to clarify that .
Keeping fingers crossed that the Tide Totals number comes down a little bit!!
I am hoping against hope that my getting the Sunday heads-up email is a "good" sign...
The number of tickets available on Stubhub has been increasing daily with close to 10,000 listed today. The starting price while still above $1200 has come down over $300 this week.
Don't hold your breath on the email. I called the ticket office and they said although they wanted to send it out today, it won't be until "tomorrow or Friday". Which means tomorrow or Friday or next Monday or next Tuesday or next Wednesday ... etc. They also would not give a point cutoff or even a ballpark. I wish the deadline was before the SECCG ... then they could have had everything wrapped up in a day or two. I'm sure they got a ton of orders on Monday :-/
They have a standard allotment for students and faculty I imagine. I guess the TP folks are waiting for them to get a good idea on former lettermen?
Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant - "Show class, have pride, and display character. If you do, winning takes care of itself."
Thomas Jefferson - "No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms."
I got the student ticket offer by meeting the credit hours and ticket penalty requirements. 235 bucks for a ticket; gotta pony up by Friday. Hopefully the GI Bill stipend will be in by Friday!
