hey if you have scumbags out in front of the shoe selling tickets for over 300 bucks i don't blame the university on this. i personally wish they would ban ticket scalping all together.

I cannot stand them!!! I even see these douchebags scalping for the spring game. I try and direct people to the Schott as I walk by for games I know that aren't sold out.

Did they ever give a reason for the ticket price increase?

Ok. I get why buying from a scalper is a bad idea for a game that's not sold out - or even just in general. But why should this be illegal? What crime is being committed when two people agree to exchange something for a price? What's the difference between scalpers on the street and Stub Hub? I'm seriously confused on this one. Perhaps there's a part of this equation I'm just flat out missing.... If so, please educate me. Thanks

Since 1950, tOSU is 33-28-2 against TTUN
tOSU has 6 National Championships to TTUN's 1
tOSU has 6 Heisman Trophies to TTUN's 2
tOSU has 11 Rose/BCS Bowl* Wins to TTUN's 8
* I'm only counting BCS bowls from 1998 on, not early wins in bowls that later became BCS bowls. I'm also not counting the 2011 Sugar Bowl that was vacated. None of these numbers include the 2010-2011 season.

tOSU has 26 Big Ten Championships including 14 solo and 12 shared
TTUN's has 23 Big Ten Championships, including 11 solo and 12 shared.

tOSU's most recent Big Ten Championship: 2009
TTUN's most recent Big Ten Championship: 2004

Since 2001:
tOSU has 6 Big Ten Championships including 5 solo and 1 shared
TTUN has 2 Big Ten Championships, including 1 solo and 1 shared.
