With 8 games attendance averaging about 2500, max of ~7950, will they be shocked playing in Montana? I hope so and with the cold, let it snow.

If I remember correctly the kids don’t get free tickets. Hopefully Pepsi, or whoever bought them last time, will donate them to the kids again.
When season ticket holders go to get their tickets for playoff games they should have an option to add on an extra $7 or whatever to buy a student a ticket. I'd happily check that box for each of the tickets I got.

I understand it’s NCAA and most of what they do is stupid. But not giving students tickets to see their college football team play has to be the dumbest thing ever.
The way I understand it is that's not really an NCAA thing. Not every school does free student tickets, the reason MSU does is because it's part of the athletic fee all fulltime students pay as part of their tuition. But that fee is based on the 6 (home) game regular season. Which means the fee doesn't cover the "extra" playoff games

Ah. Gotcha. I still don’t like it! :wink:

Love your idea though of having the option to help with student tickets. When I got my tickets last week I got 4 extras that we’ll just give away. But if there was an option to be able to help with student tickets I’d do that too. We need the students in full force! I hope they know how important they are.

There is also a rule about not giving away tickets. Something to the effect ticket prices can't be lower than the average for all home games. I would guess the $7 ticket has already been subsidized by a donation of some sort.

For what it's worth. The $7 price didn't seem to affect the students I talked to last week

Didn’t Harrington buy a bunch for students last year or am I misremembering that?

Is is it just me or does it look like both teams a bit slow! I think we have way more team speed
I have been holding my opinion but I just don't see anything explosive. The passing game looks ok but again not that quickness that I was looking for. If we could pack in 17000-18000 loud rabid fans they could be intimidated. CAT-griz is probably not happening crowd wise but close to the SEMO game atmosphere would be nice...
At least the students will be back from break next weekend, so that will help the attendance number hopefully. Fingers crossed for good weather day before and day of to make traveling easier.

Yes. No free student tickets, no corporate/comp tickets, also, I believe, no comped family section tickets.

There also won’t be the standard in-game advertising For this game.
I bought fifteen playoff game tickets to be handed out free to students for this game.

@BethanyCordell is there any way MSU can set up a donation for buying students tickets for this game? I can’t make it up to Montana for the game, but I’d love to make a donation so that students can fill those seats and give us another amazing atmosphere this weekend.

If you would like to purchase some tickets to be handed out free to the students, call Richard Droski at the MSU ticket office. 406-994-5556. I’d do it first thing tomorrow morning.

Sounds like our sponsors will buy more tickets than most of the first 8 playoff games had in attendance.
