Christ alive, read the thread.

The penalty system is going to be worth all the trouble.

Penalty system aside, I still am not too sure about this system. In the past, I think the fact that you actually had to go to Reynolds and stand in line weeded out people who weren't REALLY trying to go to the game. Now, there will be a lot more people in the lottery because of the ease of registering which still might decrease my chances of getting a ticket

I guess I'll just have to see how it goes - last year I pretty much got tickets whenever I tried and I hope the same happens again... *crosses fingers*

so, when it comes to the games and such, its still relatively the same..

walk through, show your ID,and they scan your ticket.. all that jazz.

I was worried somehow a ticket would be connected to a person and only that person could use it, as in a friend couldnt go for you or something. Sounds ok to me...

except for I dont have a printer.

I think the tickets should be tied to a valid ID. I know a lot of fresh alumni/dropouts are using there old IDs to get in the door. I think this is a huge problem and many seats would open up.

ID scanners at the doors would help (I realize the cost is ~150 (or they used to be that)). Maybe redoing IDs on a 2 year cycle would help.

I kow someone that graduated in may with a 2009 expiration date.

Being awarded a ticket to print is still tied to a valid (currently enrolled ID). If someone can convince a current student who doesn't want to go to the games to go through the whole ticket process for them, win a ticket, and then hand it over, more power to them. It all ends up with one of the main ideas behind the new system: get the tickets into the hands of those who want them, and fill the seats.

I like the system overall but I wish that you could see who, and how many people have joined your block if you are the group leader. I mean anyone can add to a block they heard about now... even if you dont want them too. Furthermore, if you allow the group leader to see who is on the block then they can remind people who forgot to claim tickets and make sure that everyone who got a ticket shows up to games. As a group leader I like the fact that before I could remind everyone and make sure they printed it out and went. Now that I dont know who is on my block I no longer have this power and I cant stand empty seats. I would rather know someone isnt going because I talked to them so that I can give the ticket to someone else to fill every seat......

If you got a ticket and went to print it off the website, as I just did - on the preview of the ticket, it has the person's name on it. How would you go about giving it to someone else if it was determined that you couldn't go? Say if you were planning on going to the game, and the night before, your work is saying you have to come in - can you give it to someone else to use?

I was just thinking the same thing. Turns out I don't think I can go, because I'll be going to a Panthers game. Can I let a buddy use my ticket, or does it just need to go to waste?

edit: I see I have to cancel the ticket. They're not as easy to pass out anymore.

either cancel it, or pass it to a friend...student IDs are required, but won't be matched to tickets

I am curious....

I was a small group leader. My brother signed up under me. I won tickets and he did not. We just checked the unity ID associated with his account and it is mine.

I thought if the group leader won everyone under you would win.

how do I get a guest ticket? I've already printed mine out. It said I could pay for one at the same time I claimed my ticket but there wasn't an option.

Guest tickets are for MTSU, Eastern Kentucky, and Maryland only.

As for photoshopped tickets, it's gonna be pretty damn hard, if not totally impossible, to photoshop a barcode that'll work at the gate (due to the way the system deploys the codes and the redundancy control).

^9,10

The statement beside the checkbox for small group leader consent says that only you have to win for the entire group to win...


"I consent to serve as a Small Group Leader for up to 23 other students who may request to be seated with me. Any student may joint my seating group by entering my Unity ID when he or she requests tickets for an upcoming event. I understand that, in the event of a ticket lottery, I must win a ticket in order for my entire group to be seated."
