    Do you know anyone in your friends or family that went there? If so, you can have them put a request for tickets into the lottery. The higher demand games can go either way, but most games you will get the request. And then just pay the people that got you the tickets. The other option is checking with the alumni offices of the family of the people you know that attended. For example, my parents can get tickets through their local alumni office in Ohio because my sister went there. There’s a lower supply but I attended the goaline Stanford game that way.

    The other option that I was told about through alumni is calling either the ticketing or alumni office on campus to see if any tickets have been returned (which is always the case). It’s just a question of how many and you have to be able to do it sort of last minute.

    They changed the ticket process up with the pricing tiers, so it might be easier as an outsider to try and get tickets when they go on sale.

    Awesome. Thanks for the advice. I have a friend from college who has a buddy who went there. I’ll see if he can help me out.

    Definitely start that process now. I want to say the lottery for alumni needs to be done fairly quickly. Since you have to jump through a few hoops, I would take a look at the schedule and figure out what games you want so you can bug your friend to tell his friend you want tickets.

    Apparently Washington State backup QB Tyler Hilinski (who played like half of 2017) committed suicide tonight....

    No official confirmation but players are tweeting about it and a Wazzu blogger is putting the puzzle together.

    Fuck.

    It's incredibly gross and I'm so pissed off at my school.

    yeah, it's pretty grotesque. So much of the admin should be wiped out

    Florida Atlantic starting QB Jason Driskel retired from football because he wants to pursue his Civil Engineering career.

    This just opens the door for ...wait for it... Jalen Hurts to reunite with Lane Kiffin.

    (Especially if the new transfer rules go through)

    100% had to happen. Entire administration needs to go. From an athletics standpoint it sucks because he was a very good AD, but that doesbt outweigh his failure to be a decent human being.
