    Re: BU season thread 4 - 2014-15 // destiny's children

    Classic BU ticket office story: I'm in a large group of season ticket holders managed by a friend who works for the university. After getting the rejection email earlier in the week we got the "We can now fulfill your order" email on Friday. After everyone does a victory lap, they tell us, "Oh, sorry. We can only give you five tickets." Well played BU. Well played. Now we have to schedule a cage match to the death to decide on which 5 get the tickets. Anyone know a promoter? #PayPerViewRoyaltiesOpportunity

            I wonder if BU is trying to distribute tickets amongst a similar point level or if you are literally the end of the line and got the last 5? I also wonder if having a person who works at BU was a benefit or if having such a large group had anything to do with it.

              If it is a group that buys 24 tickets who gets the credit (points)?

              I couldn't do that. I'm a control freak type A. No way I could handle that situation

                They would have to be tied with "437" TLP or something.

                  there were 1,673 participants in the ice hockey ticket holders (i was 223rd)
                  there were 14 women's hockey participants
                  114 men's basketball participants
                  100 women's basketball folks.

                  in the 'total supporters of bu athletics' group there were 45,634 participants (i was 614 there).
                  That was from March 2011. My ranks were:
                  men's ice hockey ticket holders - 41st
                  women's hockey ticket holders - 4th
                  men's basketball ticket holders - 0
                  women's basketball ticket holders - 0
                  total supporters of bu athletics - 139th

                  I received another TLP in March 2012, the last one I received with the "Where You Stand" section:
                  men's ice hockey ticket holders - total 927 - my rank 35th
                  women's hockey ticket holders - total 14 - my rank 4th
                  men's basketball ticket holders - blank
                  women's basketball ticket holders - blank
                  total supporters of bu athletics - total 45,945 - my rank 152nd

                  So even though my men's ice hockey rank rose my overall rank dropped. Since then I have received three more TLP updates, 2 with points/giving breakdowns, but not rankings.

                    You have a group of 24 season tickets, have been a STH for 30 years, (I think that's what you said in the last thread) and were originally denied? My lord, whatever system they're using is enormously screwed up.

                      Any truth to the rumors that as we get closer to the game day that NC$$ will release any unsold tickets? I see them on stubhub and NCAA ticket exchange for like $200+ per seat. I'd be more than willing to pony up $500/pr for all session, but I can't see paying $800+.

                        anyone who signed up for premium seats this year moved ahead of ho-hum regular 30yr STH who don't pay no premium (~$100/game).

                        that is what we have learned.

                          fwiw, the all session tickets on Stubhub and Prime Sport (only two ticket agencies I'd trust - they're 100% legitimate) are falling in price, now <$400 for the weekend.

                            Number of season tickets does not add to your priority points only years... So 20 years of 1 ticket = 20 years of 4 tickets etc

                              Exactly, and that is absurd that the person who buys one ticket gets the same number of loyalty points as the person who buys 24.
