    Thankfully, we're not too affected being in the South End Zone...but are any of you having to "bite the bullet" or signing over ticketes you've had for years?

    On the flip side, are any of you actually going to be able to move up in class, ticket-wise?

    Lemme know...I'm interested in how the ticketing situation is going to play out...

    To me its like Gasoline. Sure you can bitch about it, but what are you going to do.

    Pay the man and move on. I dont even check Gas prices anymore, its not like you can NOT get it.

    Same like LSU tickets, no one is going to let their seats get away.
    So you suck it, have 1 or two fewer nights on the town and you pay.

    one more NC and counting sure makes it easier to swallow that pill!! anyone who was considering giving up their tickets had a quick change of heart after this season. I'm sure Skip and the boys up front couldn't have planned it any better.

    Whew, LSU employees are exempt from the surcharges for their first two tickets. I only have two tickets, so I lucked out. I thought about upgrading my North Endzone seats for sideline seats since it wouldn't cost me any more in surcharges, but I like my Section 42 seats high up on the 5-yard line. They are great seats I've had for two decades and my neighbors are great. People 3 yards away on the other side of the wall will be paying $350 per seat.

    I am a student so I don't have to worry about this for a few more years, you know 9 or 10 years and I should be out.

    I am still looking for the transfer of 3-4 tickets anywhere but upper deck - am willing to pay premium for transfer (name your price per ticket) [email protected]. Any offer will be seriously considered.

    Transfer must be by March 12 - I will pay all transfer costs plus $$$ per ticket.

    Single-game tickets were $36 face value in 2003. There is talk of price increases for sideline seats, but I doubt it happens in 2004.

    Beginning in 2004, season ticket holders have to pay an additional surcharge ranging from $85/seat in the endzones to $400/seat on the sidelines. Seats in the new club level being built will have $2,500-$3000 surcharges when it is complete in 2005.
