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.

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

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

Leipold will likely prefer the Husker job over the Badgers for three reasons, and it's quite possible he would keep a few of the existing staff, namely Joseph and Busch.

Leipold will likely stay at KU. Why? Because his contract will be renegotiated in a big way and if you win over half your games as a HC at Kansas you will be the all time winning coach ever. Jack Mitchell is number one. You will have long time security in this day and age of firing coaches.

I kind of doubt it because I believe Leipold would go to Wisconsin now that they fired Chryst and I don't think Aranda would come. That leaves Gundy, which is possible. Personally, I'd love to see it work out for MJ. GBR!!!!

I'll go with no. As the Baylor coach didn't leave for more money laden pastures last year. And the KU coach mayget a full court press from Wisconsin.

Indiana nearly lost to IU & WKU and the W over Idaho wasn't that impressive. They allowed IU RB Chase Brown 199 yds and WKU RB Kye Robichaux 135 yds. Grant, Ervin, Johnson & Yant will have a big day and help keep the defense off the field.

Motivation by Mickey, simpler defense and a week of focus on individual technique will get the Huskers on track...IF there is any on-field leadership from the players.

With the shock of losing a head coach and DC behind them, they two weeks of refocus and reset will benefit this talented team and the Huskers will have new inspiration to win this next contest.

I believe in MJ enough that I do believe he will somehow have found a way to get this team ready to perform up to their capabilities. After the NW gm, SF said the guys needed something to believe in. They have to start with themselves. MJ will have em' believing!

As of right now, the defense cannot stop anybody, the offense is absolutely anemic, team moral is in the toilet, we are on the road against an improved IU team. Outside of all that, I think we have a great shot.

“Recruiting beats coaching”… true for skill positions, but not true for OL, DL, and LB positions. Very poor player development at NU and too late now that the season in underway. Wonder what Benhart would be like had he chose Iowa or Wisconsin.

This team has been neglected for several years. Frost, it seems, spent more time on personal problems but was happy to take the salary. My gut feeling is he was trying to get fired BEFORE Oct 1st and he did everything he could to do that, including the onside kick.

No reason to start winning now. MJ seems like a great coach but you have a front line that does not want to protect the QB. They look like the basketball team with no will nor want. As Tom Kropp said when he chose Kearney St BB over UNL “they can make a good player bad”
