Will Cotton Bowl be home game for ND?

This isn't meant to be a knock on Clemson fans at all. I get it, traveling to these playoff games aren't cheap, and I'm single. Couldn't imagine the cost for a family.

But this is by far the least amount of people i personally know traveling. Is it just my group or do ya'll feel the same way?

I was expecting tickets to get pretty reasonable from the lack of people i know going, but they have held pretty steady, makes me think ND fans are buying them up.

Nope - I'm going, I personally know several other people going and Tnet is full of people going. It's in Jerryworld, which is flashy and new for Clemson fans - we'll be out in force.

Good to hear! I traveled with a group of probably 16-20 to both games in 2015, and each year the number has dwindled to now just a couple of us. And the few that are going, aren't coming from upstate SC. They all got priced out with flights/tickets and decided to wait for CA.

It depends on who the IPTAY donors that bought 16 tickets sell their extra tickets to.


Where’s this coming from?

We have 14 season tickets and only ordered two for the Cotton Bowl. Was someone boasting of ordering way more bowl tickets than they have season tickets just to resell them?

Photobucket is holding my sig pic hostage. Screw them.


IIRC, the highest point levels were limited to 8 tickets initially.

Maybe that was the ACC champ game?

Obviously you didn’t, however there are a few that did. Doesn’t add up to a lot, but gives the dumpers something to talk about.

16 was an exaggeration, but take a look at the ticket board and look at the number of seats on there that were bought through IPTAY. It is clear that lots of people bought tickets they did not need with the intent to flip them for a profit.

Most will sell to their Irish friends or anyone else to make a few bucks. You know how IPTAY is! It’s all about the money. I’m sure Clemson would be better off if they relied solely on the so called fan to keep the athletic dept going.


Just a tad of sarcasm here,

ND has fans all over the country. Much of it based on their long history of being winners. People love a winner ... and ND has produced for years. I’m sure many of the Catholic faith are ND fans too. Maybe I’m overly optimistic but our teams could join the ranks of teams like the Irish sooner than later. Go Tigers

That was my concern. I know ND has one of biggest fan bases in country. This is their first time in playoffs... i remember 2015, everyone I know was in Miami and Phoenix, just doesn't seem that way with this one to Dallas

I was at the Fiesta Bowl and, yes, the place was easily 3/4 Ohio State fans. I don't think we'll be AS outnumbered in Dallas, but I do expect Tiger fans to be the minority. Could be 2/3 vs. 1/3. We shall see. Obviously this wouldn't be the case if we didn't go to the playoff every year...but we do...First world problems.

The Fiesta Bowl 2 years ago was about 3/4 O31O state fans.

It will be a home game for ND. My friends and I were excited to go until we saw the flights/ticket prices. This will likely be the biggest bowl game ND will go to for a long while; it's their super bowl. Casual ND fans will come crawling out of the woodworks much like Miami fans did in Charlotte in last year's ACCCG.


We were way outnumbered by Ohio State in 31-0 Fiesta

Ohio State had a TON more fans at the 31-0 Fiesta Bowl, but you couldn't tell based on crowd noise. They only cheered for big plays and their band. Clemson fans were consistently loud when on defense. The difference was shocking.

And this was in the first quarter. Imagine the noise difference in the 4th quarter.

Our sustained success over the past few years has began to wear on people. "Once in a lifetime" expense and experience has turned into an annual thing which makes it harder and harder to justify the costs.

From my experiences when we made the first playoff, all of Clemson went down to Orange Bowl since it was new. We won and not many people can afford to go to both semi final and national championship. We got our ticket in Phoenix for less than face value.

The following year, I feel like a lot of people made up their minds on going to Tampa due to location which drove ticket prices through the roof. I for one was walking around the day of in Tampa with $1,000 cash looking for a ticket and I wasn't even close to getting a standing room ticket.

This year I bet a lot of people are saving up for San Fran instead of Dallas due to traveling costs. I assume tickets in San Fran stay around face value and don't see the drastic drop we saw in Phoenix or the inflation we saw in Tampa.

Tickets for Phoenix were so cheap because the flights were ridiculous. Both fan bases could drive to Tampa and that drove up the game tickets. It's really just that simple.


Isn't the higher-ranked team usually the home team?***
