LSU-Alabama Tickets on Stubhub for $10,000

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama - "Simple question: Would you pay $10,423.14 to watch No. 1 LSU at No. 2 Alabama? That is the listed price per ticket on for a seat in the lower level north end zone in row 25. You can pick seat 17 or 18, or buy both for a total of $20,486.28. Tack on an additional $16.49 for overnight delivery of the ticket(s). There are dozens of tickets being sold for more than $1,000 per ticket (see sample ticket prices above)."

When you consider what a quarterback in the SEC can make just for attending Auburn (100-180k, allegedly, mind you!), you'll realize that there won't be any problem selling tickets to the "de facto" BCS National Champion game.

I'll just watch it in hidef at home :D.

As a college football fan, I might if I made $1 million a year. Since I make no where near that, I will watch the game on TV.

$10K? That's insane. Even $1K. Spend that money on a giant HD 3D television and you've got the best seat in the house without having to leave the comfort of your home.

"There are dozens of tickets being sold for more than $1,000 per ticket." Nope, these tickets aren't 'being sold' they are up for sale, not sold yet.

Further, all high priced tickets for sporting events are for business purposes, 'entertainment' that can be deducted on tax returns. We the public are paying for about one-half of these costs. There oughta be a law.

Go the day of a game after the corporate folks are filled up and ticket prices are much, much lower.
