Last week. I'm on cruise control from here out.

BTW, I don't know if this is true year-round or for all garages, but the first 30 minutes of parking is free in the Brazos garage on MLK, next to the Blanton Museum. I was able to park there, get to FAC and back within that window, though again, this might not work out Monday-Wednesday.When did they move it to the FAC? When I was in undergrad it was in the Student Services Building (SSB); and I graduated in '05, so it's not like I'm some old coot.
That is true for all garages - as long as space is available. That also includes the Speedway Garage and 27th Street Garage - both of which are closer to the FAC.
Okay, so I'm at the purchase option for the tickets. Help me out with something. Do I buy a Guest Season Ticket or LASP ticket? (I'm guessing the latter)
Guest Season Ticket: Only if you want to have 2 tickets instead of 1, but that option ads $365 to your prices.
Seating preference: East lower deck.
I bought my tickets last night, but I haven't bought the LASP yet. That's kosher, right? I can buy it later this summer?You have to buy it before they'll process your tickets. You'll probably get an email or a phone call shortly after July 28th saying you need to purchase the LASP or they won't honor your student season ticket request.
i heard they put your name on the tickets and you needed your student ID w/ you. Not sure about guest / spouse tickets though.Yes, and they scan the tickets. At least they were trying to implement it last year, but it wasn't all student tickets. Supposedly, they've worked out the kinks and will be scanning all student tickets this year.
Is it stricktly verboten to re-sell tickets? Like, could y'all's friends buy my A&M and Ohio tickets since it's not remotely important to me to go to those big games?It hasn't been in the past, but the print at home system would seem to negate the possibility of doing that for your personal student tickets. However, spouse tickets are not print at home, as far as I know, you have to pick them up at the ticket office prior to the season. Those should be possible to sell.
Guest tickets were the same way in the past, but I hear tell that they will be print at home as well. I'm not sure how that is going to work.
Anyway, somebody here (I think it was Hornian) suggested that if I just want to go to a single game with my husband (so that I can say we've been to one) I should just buy tickets on the street for the Sam Houston State game. Does that still sound like a good idea?If you jsut want one game, that's the one that will have the most tickets for sale, I gurantee it. And further, I gurantee that you won't even pay face value (which is $45 for Sam Houston State).
However, if you want to go to more than one game, student season tickets cost just a little bit more than face value for 1 game: $60 for 6 games versus $50 - $85 face value for tickets to a single game(not counting the $70 for a LASP). And a spouse pass isn't much more.
But at least then you don't have to show up six hours early for a game! I went to Syracuse and during basketball season we lined up at least six hours before every home game to get good seats in the student section. And our tickets were WAAAAAAY overpriced! Tickets for mens basketball only were almost $200 and we didn't get tickets to any away games. I think the system here is so much more efficient and student friendly!It actually is like that for basketball games.
