    It's only disheartening if you walk over to the student section and see the riot police guarding the doors to make sure they don't go anywhere.

    Otherwise the students do a good job looking enthusiastic.

    I bought a pair with 40 minutes left in sec 231.

    per the U:

    $10 TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT! You can still be in the stands at TCF Bank Stadium for the Thursday night home opener for as low as $35! Gopher fans purchased over 7,000 tickets for the 24-hour State Fair Special offer.

    Go Gophers!!

    They either opened up some more or you got lucky. I tried 3 times between 8 and 9 to buy 2 tickets and got the "no tickets available" message.

    7k+ more people would be a HUGE boost for a given game.

    Yeah I get what he was saying, but really poorly written for a writer

    It's also possible that the extra $20 I donated to military appreciation day made a difference.

    Rookie mistake. You put a sign on it that says "Not For Sale" and it will be gone with the quickness.

    Almost everything I’ve put out on the curb that’s marked free gets taken
