and no, Texas does not sell out every game, that's just not the case. 95% the tailgaters are season ticket holders and you can ride by on a day they play a wimpy team and they're still cooking ribs watching the games on Tv's in their trucks only feet from the stadium.

and I've been to games that weren't sell outs. Only games that UT plays each year that sell out each time is vs. OU, and vs. A&M, that's it. everybody else is not a sell out. not that I've heard or seen with my own eyes. if you have data to prove me wrong I'd like to see it. I may be wrong but I doubt it.

and no, Texas doesn't have a problem selling tickets. but they do have a problem selling out of tickets. and that's what this is all about. TV dollars and butts in seats. period
"Sellout" means all the tickets have been sold by the University. If the people tailgating are season ticket holders-- then obviously they have bought tickets from the University haven't they? They are just not using their tickets or sold them to someone else.

The University sells all of its tickets to every game. That makes it a sellout. This is why I can't just show up at the University Box Office window and buy a ticket to a game on gameday. Doesn't matter if people go or not. (but typically people go, or they sell their tickets to people who will go)

Name one university that sells more tickets than Texas, Michigan and Ohio State...

correct, but even those that don't have season tickets don't sell out the games. do you have some data we can discuss because I don't think they are selling them out. you say they are, I wanna see it in stats.

and I've never had a problem getting a ticket to a game that's not OU or A&M. those are definitely sellouts. it's a waste of time looking for those tickets. I agree.

I don't think you have seen Michigan or Ohio St. tickets going for $25 bucks on stub hub in a long time, unlike UT tickets were last season.

Longhorns wassup!!! the LHN can still be. but it's time to man up and face some real teams though and the SEC got em. A&M is making the move to big up their brand and before you know they will be Texas' TWIN brother. not the baby.

think about it. time to go SEC, Texas. they waiting on us. let's go!

I love this idea. Horns to the SEC!!! GO RIGHT NOW Tejas! Let the Horns and Aggies hate on each other forever.

OU/OSU/Tech can stay in the Big 12.

Unfortunately, it will never happen. Apparently, OU and Tejas' fates, as evidenced by the PAC12 decision, are tied together.

The idea that Texas doesn't show up in force is ridiculous though-- especially with an average attendance of over 100,000...

Which games could you buy for $25 on stub hub? I find that hard to believe considering face value was at least $55 for all those games...

UT football ticket prices hit a new low | KXAN.com

Quote:
Prices have not dipped that low yet, but are getting close with the worst Texas season since 1997.

Ticket City has sold seats as cheap as $29 for this weekend's match-up against Oklahoma State -- many of them in the upper deck -- for a game that would have cost four times to get into last year.

The lowest price is $25 at StubHub , another website fans turn to for tickets.

Last season Michigan tickets were less than 25 bucks in the later half of the season...

Heck, they are 4-0 this year and for the next game you can get tickets for 39 bucks on stubhub... Minnesota Golden Gophers vs Michigan Wolverines Football [10/1/2011] Tickets at StubHub!

All I know is I've been to plenty of games at Texas and the fans always seem to show up... how else would you average 100,000 a game?
