Students Denied Auburn Tickets

Apparently they ran out today in the ticket lottery. It's a sad day at Clemson University when students cannot go to the games. We want "Clemson Loud " and we want high student rankings, value tradition yet the kids just got sold out by the Athletic Director.


It's wrong. And it isn't Clemson.

Big football schools. A ticket should be available to every student that wants one (not every student will want one). That's how it should be at Clemson, we are different than the massive schools.

The problem with that argument is we didn't run out for Kent State. If this was a regular problem then yes we need to rethink number of tickets available. Since it is not, we need to rethink what makes a student eligible for tickets for big games. Yes we want every student to have the opportunity to attend, but we also need students who want to attend for all games not just the big ones.

I know a senior who pays the extra student fee to get first dibs on the tickets (and has all 4 years) who did not get a ticket for Kent or Auburn. She was online watching the tickets fly away while continuing to get pushed back in the cue. She is really upset about it, as her parents are. She pays out of state tuition and doesn't really want to buy a ticket on stubhub after all her other expenses. This is really unfair.

ticket. That's the same for everyone, not just students. You really think it'll only be students who don't pack Death Valley for the FCS type of games? Of course not. Season ticket holders will take a week off too sometimes.


Clemson's enrollment is not big enough to bar students from going to any game. Plus like I said there are a number of students who do not wish to go to any game at all, so making tickets available for 80-90% of the student base should not be something impossible.

Time to re-assess ticket allotment. Over the years I've read how students fail to show up for the start of games, in some cases leave early and frankly don't take advantage of their opportunity to enjoy Tiger football. Alumni, fans and donors would love extra tickets!

Perhaps Clemson needs to reach out to all parties to arrive at a suitable solution short of adding new seats.

Go Tigers!

There are less students asking for tickets for Kent. I can't prove this, but I can say students have historically been much more guilty of leaving at half and only wanting to show out for this big games than the paying alumni and donors.

Although this doesn't have anything to do with what I said, students are not garunteed tickets. There are not enough allocated seats.
In a perfect world this would be great. It would also be great if all students attended every home game.

This did get me thinking- A cool system might be that if I'm not using my season tickets for some reason, I could donate them to the students and get a small IPTAY bonus for each ticket. Might discourage folks from selling to opposing fans.

So now that I've done my research- here's the facts.
The university has the same allotment of tickets for EVERY GAME (10,500).
That means more students want to go to AU than Kent... when "super fans"
Choose not to go to a game- they do not give their tickets to students.... they sell them
or give them to friends.

Sooo, as I suspected, the students have the same opportunity for ALL games and more
chose to get tickets for AU than Kent....

If you have been going since the 50's then you remember the down years when it was mostly students and faculty. You CAN do what you want and go or not go, sell or whatever you choose.

Those stating that students don't deserve seats forget (or weren't affiliated with the University) and want in now. The kids are at least as loyal as the general fans as far as showing up.

Your long time support is fantastic. My father supported Marshall Football from the early 1950's and continued until his mid 80's (too many night games and his night vision made leaving the stadium quite an ordeal.) He was there, with me, during the dark days before and after the crash, when a first down was cause to celebrate and the crowds were thin.

After 35 years of donations and season tickets, he was bumped about 30 yards closer to the end zone. Many of the old faithful were bumped by new donors. IPTAY has it right, with points rather than current year donation only.

We need to remember without support from long time IPTAY members we wouldn't be where we are.

By the way thanks for your service.

How about a point system. Based on who uses their tickets. Scan IDs and log attendance. Those who attend events other than the major sports get points and priority for tickets to major sports.

but if the last 4-5 years can't get them to show up for games, nothing ever will. I gave up on them. Every week just about, a large chunk of the upper deck student section is totally barren. I make special effort to look at every game. They can't be bothered to show up for Syracuse or GT, so why listen to them complain about Auburn tickets?

I just don't feel sorry for them anymore.

For the record, I missed ZERO home games as a student. Noon game, Fall Break, didn't matter. You only get to experience it a precious few times.

It is unfortunate that some diehard students won't get in for Auburn, my oldest (a Sr) being one of them. She's been a loyal Central Spirit member for 3 years and due to a ROTC commitment wasn't able to log in within the first hour and the tickets were already gone. To add insult to injury, her photo (painted up for Central Spirit at a game 3 years ago) has been used by the university in marketing materials from a 5ft poster at the Main St Greenville Clemson recruiting office, to last year's recruiting brochure sent all over the world. Not a penny or anything for them using it.

I think it's a good learning lesson. Life isn't fair and sometimes those deserving don't receive the spoils, while those not necessarily so deserving fall bass-ackwards into a great situation. My youngest (a Freshman 8 days into her Clemson experience) got her Auburn ticket no problem. Had my oldest made other arrangements she might have got a ticket.

The oldest is lucky her Mom cannot travel with me from NH that week, so she gets her mom's ticket. Not as much fun for her sitting with her old-man, but I'm sure she'll bail on me and go join her friends during the game.

There are missiles flying all over Asia...These are small problems, my friends. SPOT THE DARN BALL!!!

The combination of a growing student population and increased interest is testing the ticket allotment.

Schools with larger enrollments have been using a lottery for years. Unfortunately for those missing out on the lottery, the demand for tickets has never been greater.

Clemson isn't cutting the allotment of student tickets.

I'm confused by all this. What exactly changed. I graduated in May and haven't been able to get full story. Last year student IPTAY members got first dibs on Sunday at 12:00 pm. Yeah i do remember that if you don't get tickets in time on Sunday you would miss out. You then had to try again on the day allotted for your grad class. No not everyone were able to get tickets. Its been that way for years. Even when we had to stand in line. So what changed. Why the outcry this year?

Perhaps because they don't have control over it? When you had to physically camp out for tickets, you had control over getting them - arrive to camp out earlier and you're guaranteed tickets. It was actually a ton of fun.

The big difference this year is that they took away block seating. That leaves a bunch of student organizations (club sports, frats/sororities, etc.) that no longer get a set number of tickets for their members. Those students now have to do the lottery like the other students have had to do, and I guess it's not going well for them. When I was there, I was a member of the water ski team and our underclassmen always appreciated being able to join the block to make sure they got a ticket to each game and could sit with the rest of the team.

My son is an IPTAY member, not in a block and didn't get tickets today.
Last year, they were short South Carolina tickets and had "internet problems".
There are student "fair weather fans" and non student "fair weather fans" All pay dearly for the experience.

It's wrong.

This isn't the Atlanta Falcons. It's a University where students are required to pay athletic fees. And some came because we were ranked highest in the nation for "students pack the stadium., beat town gown relations, happiest students, career center and intrmurals. Also highly ranked in academics.

It's a VERY special place year round AND on football Saturday's when the kids give up their campus and paid parking spots to thousands of people who show up 8 times a year.

Sorry but it aint the Clemson Alumni/ Fan / IPTAY Football Team.

It is the Clemson University Football Team. It's the students team, students paying $100,00 for a degree. Sorry but every student that wants a ticket should get one. At todays tuition, asking the students to pay for a ticket is nuts. It should be part of the package.

I know I was a student a long time ago, but section GG was for freshman "overflow' and seniors got good seats. If you can't handle all the students either you stadium isn't big enough, your student population is too big, or your priorities are wrong.

Don't get me wrong, long time IPTAY / season ticket buyers have been the backbone, and it's appreciated. Yet the students come first.

Best Ticket Situation in the ACC


Posted: Aug 29, 2017, 8:15 PM
 

I may be wrong, but doesn't every other ACC school charge for tickets, yet none have the experience Clemson students get for free. With two students paying out of state tuition the bill isn't going to be $100,000 (as mentioned by another post) it is going to be about $100,000 PER YEAR. When it's all said/done, it makes sense to add $140 for 4-years of IPTAY Collegiate Club which gets them a foot in the stadium, guaranteed for all games other than the really big ones.

which is a boat load of money. What happened? My kids had to stay in state at NCSU. Almost 1/4 the cost and slightly higher rated engineering school. There was no way that I could justify the additional cost. Even if they wanted to borrow extra to pay for it, I wouldn't have let them.

Oldest is at Wake in MBA program. Tuition is $38,000 a year. Her employer is paying most of that, but geez, Clemson is right there with them.

Yeah, let's just let nothing but students in. I'm sure that football stadium and all the costs associated with running the program will just pay for itself. Nevermind the fact that the students don't even fill up their sections for most home games.

In the 80's every student was guaranteed a ticket up to the end of the first quarter. These included all sports (including basketball).

I realize the school was not as large then. But we had crowds larger than 85k numerous times. Why does the stadium hold less now?

It's their team. I graduated twenty years ago and was a season ticket holder and IPTAY donor for most of those 20 years, but to me the students have to be the priority. And that's true if they show up late, leave early, only show for big games, etc. I'm not on board with demanding some loyalty demonstration before a student gets a ticket.

Just one alum's opinion.

Why limit the number of students. We used to let in every student. I know the school is larger but when did not guaranteeing tickets end? Is there a limit for how many can fit on the hill.

yep.

this isn't Ohio State or Texas A&M where 50,000 students cant realistically get in. Leave the lotteries and barely any students getting to go to those massive schools.

That's not Clemson, no matter how big the football program is now. The day the football program gets bigger than the students is the day we need to re-evaluate what Clemson is as a university and reshape priorities.

It was, is, and has to be one of the primary building blocks of Clemson graduates. Of course the students have to show up but never not have a place for those who want to be a part of the Clemson experience. Expand the loudest stadium in creation if you have to but make sure OUR students have a seat!

Go Tigers!!!

and Clemson is unique having the advantage to do that. Unlike ANY other school thanks to the relatively low enrollment compared to the massive stadium.

We shouldn't get away from this unique feature of being a Clemson student

coming late,leaving early,even protesting the student discounted tickets.If 20,000 students had been showing up for every home game, they would still be made available. Now,after years of empty student section, Clemson is THE hot ticket and students are now wanting theirs.

They don't fill the ones they get.

Saying that, I think part of the problem is block seating. Ditch that. Let the most passionate (the ones who would show up at 6 am to wait in line for a ticket) the best seats.

In 2017, Clemson students are the only students in Division 1 athletics to have access to completely free tickets to football games, according to Joe Galbraith, associate athletic director for Clemson University. Galbraith said 10,500 student tickets are made available in lower deck seats, on the hill and in top deck seats. That's about 13 percent of the 80,000 seat stadium. Those tickets are available based on class status. Seniors take precedence over underclassmen. IPTAY Collegiate Club members also have a better shot at tickets since they have access to an earlier online ticket window ahead of each game.

There are more than 23,000 students enrolled at Clemson University, so 10,500 student tickets means more than 12,000 students will not have free tickets to any given game.

When it comes to the removal of block seating, Galbraith said, "The athletic department, ticket office and ITPAY staff does not set the rules for student ticketing. We are the provider and facilitator of the ticket distribution, but those policies are set by the Student Government to maximize the student ticket allotment. Student Government informed the athletic department and ticket office they wanted to do away with block seating this year, and we are fulfilling the request of the students."

As for whether the ticket process has become a lottery, Galbraith said that 3,500 of the 10,500 student tickets are reserved for IPTAY members. IPTAY members who do not receive a ticket through the collegiate club are still eligible to receive tickets during their regular class ticket window as well.

Re: Students Denied Auburn Tickets

I was student from 1984 to 1988 (good old Danny Ford years). During my freshman and sophomore years, I sat in the upper deck student section. My junior and senior years I sat in the lower deck student section. We had about a 15,000 student body at the time and each game week there was a designated day for students to get their football ticket (i.e. Seniors on Monday, Juniors on Tuesday, Sophomores on Wednesday, Freshman on Thursday). All you needed was your student activity card and the person issuing tickets would "punch" the appropriate number on the card and give you a ticket. There was never a time in my 4 years at Clemson that I was not able to get a football ticket nor do I know of any student that was denied a ticket who wanted to go to a football game. I'm saddened to hear that this is no longer the case for students regardless if we are playing Kent State or Auburn...

I was a student 98-02. Tickets were never a problem, mainly bc one of my roommates parents gave us their tickets on the 50 yard line while they sat in the presidents box. We had it made.

Some games were harder than others for some of my friends to get tickets. I never thought the block seating was fair. Why did fraternities and sororities end up with better seats and more tickets than the GDI's?

I'm glad they got rid of block seating and put everyone on an equal footing. Just my 2 cents.

students were allowed discounted date tickets as well.

There was a plan floated a few years back for students to buy heavily discounted tickets.

It did not fly.

Raffles for big games isn't something new

I won my upper deck tickets to the 2005 Miami game as a freshman in the lottery. Several basketball games were lottery (Duke in 2007 or 2008 was lottery I remember, as I didn't get a ticket). It's been happening at least since 2005 for the really big games in football and basketball, though it wouldn't surprise me if the basketball was no longer the case.

block or weren't in line early enough, you didn't get ticket for some games. A lot of this is more whining entitlement non-sense if you ask me. There have not been enough tickets for the entire student body for decades and the supply is fixed but enrollment keeps going up. I do think they need to revisit the priority system as it appears something is not going quite right with that. Also, I understand using tech instead of the lines but you have to make it more flexible or done at a time when people won't have conflicts with school required classes/events. Seniority and school spirit rewards(attending other athletic events) should get priority. The $40 IPTAY fee is kind of dumb-- not a lot of $ there. Just up the entire activity fee by $15 for all and cover that cost-- it doesn't pay for the value of the seat anyway. Also, they could guarantee each Fr -Jr 1 big game if they wanted to --- Auburn or FSU. Srs have ability to get both. If there are more left, then use Jr priority and down the line.

on down years, this is really not a problem-- the problem is we are at a high point of Tiger football- even the kids who normally wouldn't go want to go now and be a part or they know they can use their seniority to get a ticket and sell it

My daughter is a senior and in IPTAY.

She didn't get a ticket in the IPTAY lottery and tried again at the senior time slot. She waited in the queue and when it was her turn, the screen just turned to jibberish. By the time she got back logged in of course all the tickets were gone.

And the same basic thing happened to her boyfriend (but he got a different error msg - it said something about the server could not be found).

That's messed up that seniors in IPTAY can't get tickets.
