    I don't disagree. Casual fans need to pick up that responsibility. Giving them a week instead of a couple days notice would make that more feasible. Then they just need to get conditioned to look for tickets X number of days before gameday knowing that's when the release of returns always happens.

    I think NDSU realizes this. However, do you not want to recoup your TM fees when you sell your tickets or are you cool with paying for your donation straight up? Legit question. Reason I ask is last week there was someone on the Facebook ticket group selling 40 yard line, Row D for let's say $200/ticket. People were freaking out left and right. All they see is the price on the ticket stub. To each there own on this but when it comes to resale, that must be thought of as well.

    I am so sick of the Bison already. Win this, win that, blah, blah, blah. I'd really, really like to know how they do it. I swear they have to be the luckiest sob's on the planet. Just sick of this bs, just fed up.

    I've only been harping about this for over a year now. My college student can decide if she wants to attend the game by MONDAY!
    Open those seats up to the public by Tues. or Wed. at the latest. This would NOT be difficult. Yes, I've sent 2 emails. Consider yourself invited to do the same.

    Have there been any youth tickets available???
    (Pronounced as Yute tickets for “My Cousin Vinny” fans)

    3 years ago I was able to buy them ($20, maybe only $10).
    Have looked for a couple games this season, but did not see any, although they may have sold out. Encouraging fans to bring new young fans seems like a good idea......even if they are hanging out in the concourse - at least they are in the building.

    Back when they had GA they had youth GA tickets. I think at one point entire sections were GA but most recently (probably 10 years ago now) seats above a certain row in the endzone were GA.

    3 years ago everything would've been reserved so no youth prices for seats. Perhaps they were youth standing room?

    Currently my TM feed are low and I give more than needed for my football and BB tickets. My buddies buy my extra ticket each game and I never charge them for going to a game with me. They do pay me but I never tell them what I need/want for the ticket. They never pay me less than face value and one pays me $100 each time. So no I am not concerned about getting paid my TM fees when I “sell” my tickets. I am giving the money anyways.

    I think about 3 years back they eliminated the GA section and moved everything to assigned seats. At that time the youth GA tickets went away. It was a really great way from me to get two young boys into some lower endzone seats super cheap especially for playoff games.

    They are kind of following the major sports in pricing out many if not most families. I don't think that's a good long term plan.

    I'm ok with it for football since the demand for tickets is so high.

    That group is collectively stupid. My favorite are ones looking for tickets and will only pay face value..as if they decide the market
