"Get 'em up and keep 'em up, bulldog."
If you haven't gotten your season ticket order form yet, get ready for a mild shock. Road game tickets to Oklahoma State are $100 a pop. That's the price of two tickets almost everywhere else. It's $15 more than OSU charges its own fans for single tickets to conference games and $40 more than OSU's other nonconference games. They are not selling individual tickets for the our game, either. In other words, OSU has targeted Georgia fans for a severe gouge.
An increase in ticket price isn't going to make or break those of us heading to Stillwater, but it's the principle of the thing. Yell nasty stuff at us? Sure. Give us crappy seats? No big deal. Run out of beer at your local brewery? We'll manage. Turn us over inside your port-a-pottys? Umm ... But don't single us out for disparate treatment in ticket prices.
I suppose we should't expect egalitarianism from Okie State. Their program is the second most prominant example of the disproportionately powerful single donor. With OSU's pervasive use of variable ticket pricing and the impressive showing Dawg fans put on in Tempe last year, we should count on this type of treatment from the Pokes. After all, they have some money to make up after Uncle Boone lost all their money in the market. They might as well force visitors to make up for those losses.
