You will NOT receive an email reminder prior to the start of your specific ticket purchase date.

As a reminder, priority is based on the number of years that you have purchased tickets, in your name, through the NCAA ticket purchase process for any NCAA Men's Frozen Four from 1997 Milwaukee through 2013 Pittsburgh. You receive one priority point for each year that tickets were purchased.

Tickets dropped to $50 for the weekend on stubhub last year. I'm sure I'll wait and grab some off there. Great time to raise prices NC$$

The $500 seat is part of the VIP/hospitality packages. If you're going to spend $500 on the seat, spend the $685 for the full hospitality package or $810 for the VIP.

Also, the interest list for a private suite at the FF in Philadelphia continues to grow! jhfhockey(at)gmail.com and I'll add you. When those prices are announced I'll let you know.

$13.50 in 1976 is about $55 today.
$110 in 2000 is about $149 today.

Thanks for the "inflation" bump, NC$$!

Check out 1991 [$75.00 (St. Paul Civic Center]. That year appears to be when FF ticket prices initially took flight.

I believe that was my first FF. It must be all my fault that the prices jumped so much!

I think we should thank them. Because they are willing to shell out megabucks for the "best" seats the rest of the seats are kept less expensive. If theey didn't sell, the NCAA might decide to make up the revenue by charging even more for common seats.
It's the same philosophy I have with speeders. It is against the law to flash your lights to warn oncoming drivers of a speed trap. Why the hell would I want to warn them? If the cops are busy pulling them over and collecting $125 they are leaving me alone.

While we're on the subject of tickets, Does anyone have any info on how the sale of ticket packages for the Big Ten and NCHC tournaments have gone so far? Just curious, I would think that the sales so far would be soft, but that is just speculstion on my part.

I believe the illegality has less to do with why you're doing it than the fact that you're doing it. What I was taught many years ago in Defensive Driving here in NY was that the headlights must remain on at all times when it is dark and flashing them is essentially turning them off, albeit for such a short time. IMO, It's a way for them to stop you doing that despite the fact that the reason behind it is not actually illegal. It also can be considered a distraction to other drivers to see somebody flashing their lights or possibly an obstruction of justice to interfere with radar traps. That being said, it's all a stretch at best and I'd be willing to bet not many police officers are going to waste their time pulling anybody over for doing it. Heck, truckers routinely flash their lights to let each other know when it is safe to complete a pass. I'd like to see a cop pull one of them over for that - not likely.

You aren't turning your lights off when flick your high beams. Stupid argument though.

I got a pair of tickets for last years Thursday games for $30 per ticket. I will probably be paying much more this time around since there most likely will be some big name schools back in it this year.
