A TALE OF TWO WEEKENDS

Patrick Smith

THIS WEEKEND WILL BE THE DEATH OF SCALPERS

Everything you need know about the past weekend and the coming weekend in college football may be summed up in the juxtaposition of two very different items seen below.

One:

The get-in-the-door price is similar to the meeting of No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 LSU two seasons ago. Then it was costing around $400 to get an upper-level ticket in the end zones. A sampling of the lowest ticket price for several seat resale sites:

-- Stubhub: $349 (Sect. 517)

-- TicketCity: $348 (Sect. 508)

-- TicketNetwork: $395 (Sect. 508)

-- eBay: $399 (Sect. 503)

-- VividSeats:  $406 (Sect. 523)

And two:

BETHUNE-COOKMAN - FAMILY FOUR PACK Bethune-Cookman - Family Four Pack

Includes 4 game tickets, 4 concession vouchers good for 4 soft drinks and four hot dogs and a 10% discount coupon redeemable at The FSU Bookstore or Seminole Sports Shop.

Hey, FSU's not alone. You can get tickets on the 50 on the visitor's sideline for the Tennessee/Florida game for $82.00 on Stubhub, an internet price convertible to the real world equivalent of $17.00 and three cans of Skoal.
