Unh. 7+ hour client meeting today, and another one tomorrow. This blows.

do we have to join the group again for the UT/OU game, or not?You don't have to, but if you do you'll get seated with people you already know, if not you'll be thrown into the wilderness that is the Cotton Bowl on OU weekend. I've done both, and had no problems either way. It's all about personal preference.
Many, many thanks for setting up the group. I can't wait 'til the OSU game!To your first question, it is quite the opposite. The larger groups get seated better. It is easier for the ticket office to seat the large groups fist, and then "fill in" with smaller groups. As long as we are all Grad Students or Seniors (they wouldn't affect our status, though I don't know how seniors would get the group name and password), our seats should be pretty good. Just make sure that you select lower level east side, though if you're in a group I don't think it matters.
One question, does having a very large group of grad students (assuming noone invites underclassmen) adversely affect where our seats might be?
Also, since the tickets are printed -- if you don't or can't go to a game to your tickets just go to waste? Is there no way to give them to anyone?
Dear <your name here>,
UT students can now purchase their Longhorn All Sports Package (LASP) and student football season tickets online! Visit the 'Student Login' page to access the ticket purchasing site. You can activate your account on the login page by entering your personal customer number and PIN (found at the top of this email).
Students who purchase the LASP at the $70 base price are able to obtain a free ticket admittance to all home regular season events in all UT men's and women's sports -- based on ticket availability. UT students who purchase the LASP at the $70 base price and who DO NOT pay the additional $60 LASP reserved football season ticket are able to participate in a "ticket draw" prior to each home football game in order to obtain an LASP ticket at no additional charge -- based on availability. You must purchase the LASP in order to be eligible to receive football tickets in the student seating area.
When you request your LASP and/or tickets, you will also be able to create or join a group. When ordering your tickets look for the 'Create Group' or 'Join Group' links and follow the instructions on the site in order to sit with other students. All requests for tickets placed by the priority deadline are filled according to the lowest classified student in each group (based on official UT records). The first priority classification is seniors, followed by graduate students, juniors, sophomores and freshmen.
The priority deadline for ordering student football season tickets is July 28. Tickets, if available, may still be ordered after this deadline. However, requests received after the deadline will be filled for the best available seats after all orders submitted by the priority deadline have been processed.
Please note that ONLY eligible UT students that enroll in the Fall 2006 semester will be eligible to receive tickets. Any currently enrolled or admitted students who are not official UT students for the Fall 2006 semester will receive a refund for the cost of any LASP or tickets ordered, but not for any processing fees.
Additionally, it is the responsibility of each group to protect the password used to join a group. Please be sure that the group password is given only to students who should be a member of the group. In order to become a member of a group, a student must not only create or join a group but must also select the desired group from the drop-down menu of potential groups at the time that they submit their ticket orders. A group must be selected for season tickets and away game tickets if a student desires to be seated with other students. The Athletics Ticket Office will be unable to change, add, or delete student group members. Therefore each group must protect access to the group password and each student must confirm that they have selected the correct group at the time that they request their tickets.
Student football season tickets will be sent out this year as Print-At-Home tickets. Students will receive emails in August that will have attachments allowing students to print their own season ticket(s). Students will then bring each ticket that they print to the appropriate game -- which will be scanned for verification -- along with their UT student ID. Individual away game tickets must still be picked up at the Bellmont Hall Ticket Office. For more information on the LASP and student tickets, please visit TexasSports.com.
Please be sure to add email@example.com to your email address book to ensure that you receive any email confirmations and Print-At-Home tickets to your inbox.
