Ha I manage our accounts and cook meals while finishing grad school, and she makes 4x what I'll ever make. I'm not mad about it.

After getting season tickets last year for the first time in a long time, we didn't renew for this year, mostly due to the game experience & the whole experience in general being a bit of a beating. This just validates that decision. We'll just hit the secondary market from now on & mostly just go to Texas-ou. Save a lot of money & still have fun. /csb

Parking selection and the chance to move seats looks to either have started or starts next week (! have a time on Monday) and runs through May 6th. 

Next Monday, big timer.

So if we move does that impact the "locking in donation forever" that we were promised last year? Although it seems they might just raise ticket prices to get around it but still would be good to know.

They are just going to raise ticket prices now that donations aren't tax deductible and they are splitting donations for basketball, no on is really going to care.

Last year they were $150. However it wasn’t long ago they were $90-95 each. And that was when you could expect a win.

Those were the days. I didn't mind $150 each last year, but $175?! That's outrageous!

I had no idea that was still a policy but they aren't enforcing it.   I have tix that are technically not for resale according to that link and have never had anyone say anything.  Have sold via stubhub (which partners with UT so they have the information) numerous times the last 5+ years.  Of course I typically sale at a loss with the shit product we have had so it would take some nerve to bitch at me about it.

I know it’s been discussed, but $175 for OU IS A CRIME. now, take my money.

I mean compared to prices for most large scale events these days that is still pretty cheap comparatively for a marquee event.  I think the only thing that's a crime is that 50 yard line seats are priced the same as upper corners.  I get that it's a perk for donors to get good seats well under market value, but depending on each team's start to the season, that may be well overpriced for shitty seats.  And you have to lock in not knowing exactly where your seats will be.

This is a seriously jackass part of the policy:

"...The following discounted tickets and passes are ineligible for resale on the secondary market:

  • Season tickets where the donation level is below the current published per-seat contribution..."

Not sure when the huge escalation started, but I've still got some stubs from '94 when they were $17 a game.  And you didn't even need to donate to get guaranteed OU tickets.

That is wild. There has definitely been a steep increase even in recent years. Face was right at $100 (it might have been $90 or $110 or whatever but in that ballpark) when I was a student 2010-14 and stayed there for a few years after I graduated. It's escalated damn near annually the past few seasons.

 It sounds like you can’t sell these tickets on Stubhub where the barcode does an official transfer, but can you still do an official ticket transfer online to someone else?

That's a Patterson thing, I had "grandfathered" seats when that jackass started this policy. It kind of pissed me off but on his list of crimes this one probably doesn't even get halfway up the list.
