Season ticket holders donate and deserve first try. Maybe reduce to max purchase to 10 though

If you pay for season tickets and have to pony up.the donation then yes they should get first crack however, it should only be limited to the number of seats you have.

I agree with some of the commits. Season ticket holders do pay a premium for their tickets so why shouldn't we get first crack at the spring game.

but reduce the max purchase to 10 a day...this way they get first dibs but then can get more if needed on the same day as everyone else.

I have gone to the Spring game the last 20 years. I always take my disabled friend, who can afford the $10 ticket. This year we will not be going. I tried 53 times to phone in and could not get in. No one should be allowed to purchase a large quantity of tickets. The FROST has MELTED for us.

Allowing season ticket holders to grab 20 -40 tickets at a pop is ridiculous. If you want to give them first dibs, limit them to 6-8 and let other people have a fighting chance at taking their family

I remember when the game was free and I would travel from California to watch them play. I think they need to charge $10 at the entry gates for all spectators. Stubhub tix for $500 is CRAZY.

I agree, that is absolutely stupid, and it is a good argument against those season ticket types that charge way too much for tickets.

the amount of tickets given to Season ticket holders is way high. Should be double the number of season tickets they have no more.

No problem with giving season ticket holders an opportunity to buy some early, but 60K was excessive and they obviously didn't intend to go based on the amount that are now on Stubhub for $100+.

There should be a limit on how many tickets can be bought at a time. Ridiculous what scalpers are doing to this event!

I think the best solution is still letting the season ticket holders get first dibs but only if they get the amount of season tickets they currently hold.

some individuals were allowed to buy mass numbers of tickets and the average fan was shut out. now they are available for purchase at bend over prices on the net.

My boys and I have been attending spring games for nearly two decades, but NOT this year because tickets not available due to the 20 per first day! And those are now on Stubhub! Bad deal!!

The U of N previously had a policy that permitted them to deny a season ticket holder’s right to purchase season tickets if they were caught scalping . A 20 Tx limit encourages scalping! Yuck!

Allowing the season ticket holders to buy 20 tickets a piece was a little bit ridiculous. The spring game WAS a great opportunity for young parents to bring small children without major expense.

The spring game ticket sales method is geared to the wealthy. No season ticket holder should be able to buy 20 tickets at the expense of other loyal fans. AD should have realized the demand would be high. AD earns an F

Bonanza for scalpers alright. Had to resort to Stubhub for $60 tickets and it appears I got by cheap compared to the $600+ dollar tickets out there.

I can see Season Ticket holders getting fist right to buy. But it should have been limited to the number of season tickets purchased. I am an alumni of UNL. I support UNL financially, and through other means. I live out of state so am not a season ticket holder. It's unfortunate how this was handled

There should have been a cap on the amount of tickets you could buy, no matter if you had season tickets or not. Some guy bought 84 tickets at once for out of state friends and family.

NU Tix office should have limited the number of spring game tickets to season ticket holders to a much lower number. All the hype has been built up and then the "common" person doesn't get the chance

I don't think it was fair to non-season ticket holders. 57,000 were sold the first day. I purchased w/in 1 min of sales on 2/7/18 and the best I got were south end zone nose bleeds. Revenue the issue?

I really have no problem with the amount of 20, as long as there was a caveat of no scalping. Should have worked something with StubHub to prevent the price gouging.

Spring game tickets should not show up on Stub Hub or other ticket sales. This game is for the fans that cant afford normal rated tickets. It should be against the law to be able to hike tickets to $600 for a $10 dollar ticket... I feel that 6 or 8 should be the limit for anyone.

Understand Season Ticket Holders should get an advantage but 20 tickets seems excessive it encourages hoarding for scalping purposes. Probably should have been like a max of 6

OU is susceptible to the long passing game. NU pulls out some stops on offense. D keeps it close. OU by 3.

Spencer is a guy who’s easily rattled (get it?) and figures to throw a few picks if pressured. I still think we lose but Huskers can move the ball through the air and force a few TOs to keep this game within 14. Small chance they even pull out the W

Sooner's lose one game mid-season. Why not this one. Hopefully no one showed the Sooner team what Frost and company did to them in '96 and '97. We should play well for 3 quarters then their top guys may take over.

It's likely at some point in the game we'll be down a score or two. Does this team have the mental toughness to fight and mount a comeback or will they fold? I just don't think the team has that kind of confidence in themselves yet.

I can’t believe Nebraska fans have fallen so far that they discuss if they can’t beat the spread and not if they can beat OU.

No way! IL lost big to an unrated Virginia team. Sooners will do whatever they want to do regarding score. Tired of us ‘rebuilding’ when we can’t beat teams that out recruit us every year. Don’t those teams have to rebuild? Simply put we are either terrible recruiters or terrible developers.

Big REd is playing well below the Sooner's level. I just hope they can keep it at the 21 points and not get buried in a ten td avalanche.

They are still playing pretty bad. Offensive line is still not blowing anyone off the ball. Defense is still not getting a pass rush. Secondary is not as good as advertised. Hopefully there will be improvement.

We are not there yet. We put too much pressure on an improving defense. If NU could some how score 40 they might have a chance at the end of the game but....I'll call it 48-27 OU.

Frost is doing everything he can to try to get this program going again. That even means blatantly cheating and trying to cover up his cheating. This isn’t an oopsie, it’s desperation. Same with trying to run away from the OU game. He knows he’s in trouble and he just cost himself his buyout.
