    Season ticket sales must not have gone great..

    Single game tickets now on sale and there are A LOT of good seats available for our biggest home games. I'm talking lower level at midfield. In the past the only availability would ordinarily be in the corners or the upper deck.

    Combination of many many things I'm well aware, but still a little jarring to see.

    Just a note you will have to pay single game bulldawg club donation. In the past that's the way it has been. I was in section 04 and the seat next to me was empty. I bought the ticket for a few games and had to pay an additional bulldawg club donation. That's the way it was. It might not be that way now. I moved to another section.

    Only added fee is a $4 ticket fee. They're still pretty pricey for the good seats. I'm betting those prices come down in the next month or so.

    Is it official that the UK game is the CWS National Championship Ring/Recognize the team game?

    I noticed that too. Blame it on covid, SEC network, or whatever… but less and less people seem to be willing to pay these asinine costs by the year.

    $4k for tickets + another $1k per weekend on hotel, food, and gas…. You could just about buy a place on Heber and put a good boat on the dock for this kinda money

    They do the fans no favors that's for sure.

    Charging Alabama ticket prices for Mississippi State's product. It's just not worth it. And I'd say alot of the middle class section of the fanbase (myself included who can't buy season tickets to every sport) would now rather set aside some cash for baseball games and lodging. It all comes down to bang for your buck. I'm not going to Perkins to buy a Ruth's Chris priced steak.

    Yeah that part's not true. It's certainly expensive, but it's reasonably priced in comparison to Alabama and others. MSU is not doing anything outside of the ordinary. It's the price of doing business now.

    Yes KY is the ring presentation and they are only charging $21/ticket for that one according to the email I got yesterday. The AL game will be a home game for them once all of the Meridian Bammer fans and WalMart AL shirt buyers buy up the leftover tickets.

    You can get MSU season tickets for all 7 home games for $225. Good luck getting Bama season tickets for that price.

    Well it is less expensive to buy all seven home games in section 05 than to buy the season tickets in section 05 because no bulldawg club donation. 400.00 per seat bulldawg contribution in section 5 vs 5.00 per ticket. I have not done the math but I think I will next season before I buy season tickets. (They might have jacked up the price for the tickets to include the donation.)

    One month to kickoff. As of 8am this morning only 43% of Mississippi adults are vaccinated. Does anyone think it's a good idea to have 60k fans at Davis Wade?

    Bama Season tickets start at $400 a seat before required donations. And you need years worth of points and donations to move up their waiting list.
    Ole Miss Season tickets are $199 each - but require a $500 donation - so $699 total.

    We can't give them away at $225. the only SEC school less expensive than MSU is Vandy - at $175 a seat.

    With their prices, its WAY cheaper to pick the 4 home games you want to attend, purchase secondary market tickets in the nose bleeds, and go sit wherever there are open seats on the lower level.

    And trust me there will be plenty of open seats on the lower levels. Some games you will be able to find lower level seats an hour before the game for even cheaper.

    Hey John, lower the prices.

    Sure… we distributed close to 200,000 southern border migrants throughout the country over the past couple months with unknown status.

    Thousands that were verified that were Covid positive were sent to McAllen, TX in the past month.

    Id be fine with it. Don’t see what’s different about Starkville.

    just thinking of how dumb it is to pay thousands of dollars to watch a game you can see on tv. Even Alabama games.

    Go to one game a year, get your fix. Then use the money to invest in a home and/or boat at Smith Lake and STILL Watch the game.

    I'm surprised they don't charge more. But the fact remains, we aren't charging outrageous prices for season tickets. Now, I could understand someone paying $10k for a skybox + $ for seats feeling like they aren't getting a value or their monies worth. But too many of our poor mouth fans still believe its 1980 and they should be able to get 50 yard line seats for $10 a pop. It's one of those lasting poor Ol MSU attitudes that just needs to die.

    What annoys me is that for 10 years I've had the same BDC parking lot, and every year I request a few different lots that would work better for me. My rank has climbed about 3000 spots, we've now gone through 2 seasons of lower ticket sales, but apparently they still can't find another parking lot for me.

    I understand I'm just another peon, but wonder what it actually takes to get anything other than lot 36. I've called, emailed, made notes on my ticket orders. Nothing works.

    Well yeah they're cheap this year since they can't get rid of them.

    But it's a bed that's been made for the past several years. Covid just set it to it's boiling point. I was loyal for the last 20 years consecutively and that includes Jackie's last 3 seasons and the whole tenures of Croom and Moorhead. I won't discredit Mullen because no doubt I had a good time during parts of his run. I wouldn't have traded season tickets to those 2014 games for anything. Covid just helped change priorities. I learned I can be content in front of the tube every game.

    It depends on how much you value the experience. I like to go to the games because I like to tailgate, see old friends, listen to the band, smell the food, and hear the roar of the crowd. That's why people go to the games. And it's only seven times a year you get to do that.

    I personally think it's dumb to buy a home at Smith Lake but I wouldn't project that onto you because you may value it differently.

    I never had a parking pass until 2018 season. I was on a waiting list for a couple years and they called me one day and gave me the choice of about 5 or 6 lots. I told a friend about it and in 2019 he requested one and same thing, had multiple lots to choose from. My rank isn't high at all, like #4400 or so you aren't getting through to them some how.

    I haven't seen any pro or college football team say they won't be at 100% capacity. You may see mask requirements but I am not expecting attendance restrictions.

    That said, I'm not expecting a packed house when we play LA Tech on September 5th in the scorching heat that afternoon. There may not be 30,000 actual butts in seats if masks are required on top of those other factors.

    Mississippi people love to toss their money away out-of-state, then brag about it to their friends on social media. It's the thing to do. Do you even Pinelake bro?

    Serious discussion here.... why can't the school charge $10 a pop and fill up the stadium? They certainly can if they want. Because 1. They are taking in $100million more per year than they did in 1980.

    also, what has changed about the stadium (bleacher seats) and product on the field since 1980?
    There is a video board for replays. Ok. We pass the ball more. Ok. Are those two things worth $60-80 more a person per game?

    The coaching staff isn't making $100 million more per year than the 1980 staff. Maybe the HC makes 4.8 more.....but...

    Leach is only making 500K more than Mullen did in 16-17. State's revenue has increased $18 million per year since 2016.

    This is my point. If the pandemic were still the dire situation that some would have you believe, it doesn't seem to make sense to allow 60k in a stadium in a town of 20-25k population with a statewide vaccination rate below 45%. I hope people will go on record and say they don't think there should be fans at football games. I would disagree, but at least we would have a better idea just how serious they really think the current situation is.

    Unless things have changed since I last had season tickets in 2018, the seat fee varied on how "good" the seat was. Club Level seats on the east side were almost $2000/seat, plus the cost of the ticket. For the seat fee, you got food, drink, and other snacks, plus a heated and cooled space to get away from the weather. But some of the seats were inside of the goal line, some on the 50. It depended on how much you were willing to commit, so in effect, the seat fee was much higher to get a good seat. Parking, regardless of where your seats were, was on top of all that. I think it was $30/game at the time. Bleacher seats on the west side on the 50 were around $500/seat as I recall.

    Time to rip all the bleachers out of the bottom and put in seats. Nothing worse than getting a lard ass that takes 2 spots pushing you out of your seats.

    Maybe football losing some of its luster? Combination of Bama fatigue, baseball hangover, and a lack of belief that Leach can win big in the SEC? Just a guess.

    It's pretty serious. ICUs are overflowing again and deaths are ticking upwards. I seriously doubt this wave will be as bad as the last one was, but we're definitely in the early stages of the second wave of this.

    This should absolutely be next on the list. I'm sure whoever makes money off those cheap chairbacks is campaigning hard against this, but there's really no reason to put it off any longer.
