    Fair or not, potentially awful consequences if not heeded.

    So if they call me, I just have to say I sold them to my cousin at face value. My cousin on the other hand can sell my ticket of $700+

    Seems fair.


    Another question..... If A&M loses, do you think they'll drop in their ranking? Does it make sense to drop the #6 team if it loses to the #1 team? I'm assuming that's why #1 is #1 & #6 is not, because most voters already think Alabama is a superior team.

    Sounds like they are holding the students more accountable for questionable actions than their Heisman winning quarterback.

    Wonder if that individual held Johnny to the same standard?

    I hear the A&M faculty is going to dress undercover in San Francisco 49er jerseys because they thought the Seattle Police Dept. had such a good idea. :D :tiphat:

    Any student that sells their Bama ticket for profit will be penalized by missing the first half against SMU.

    Yep. I am part of a facebook group online where we used to sell our passes. Last semester everything was reasonable and no-one was locking down on anyone like this before. I sold two or three passes for 50 dollars or less - i.e face value for the most expensive, and like 30 bucks (also face value) for the cheaper ones. It was good money, and I used it to fund my adventures in Austin on the weekends. However, now people are selling their tickets for 400, 500, 600 dollars on that page and it's kind of disgusting. You're supposed to sell them at face value, or give them away. I get the whole supply and demand thing, but frankly it's not good bull.

    You beat this the same way you beat reselling Southwest rewards certificates (which according to the rules can't be sold for any amount, but can be given away).

    Cost for two tickets - $0
    Cost for (xxx, be it delivery, shipping, a lanyard, etc.) - $900

    Perfectly within the letter of the rules.
