Not yet. The scuttlebutt is that the email with the instructions on how to order the tickets will go out this week, but that's all just hearsay and speculation at this point. I'll make sure that I post any more info when and if I get some.

I want to go to them all, including the away games (especially at Nebraska and Tech) but I realize that both school and lack of finances will conspire against me.

Nebraska would be great -- I have friends in Omaha that could potentially get me tickets, too (as long as I return the favor next year), but it's getting there and back that's the problem.

Omaha is a 13 hour drive from Austin.  It isn't too hard to drive it all in one day.  It does mean that you need one day before and after the game to do it, though.

I'm getting reports of undergrads starting to get the email for Student Season Tickets. I'll post more info when I have it.

I just got my email. Here's the text:

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

Please be sure to add to your email address book to ensure that you receive any email confirmations and Print-At-Home tickets to your inbox.

I'm going to create a group name and group password and put it on the Freshlaw Message boards (so that it is more protected). However, if you want the name and password here, just send me a PM.

Note: Everyone must sign up by the 28th of July in order to be part of the group. If they don't, there's no guarantee of tickets. Also, please don't invite any UT students who are not Seniors or grad students - if there is one Junior or Sophomore or Freshmen in the group, the entire group is classified by that classification, i.e. if there are 100 1Ls and 1 Freshman, the entire 101 person group is classified as Freshmen and we'd get crappy seats.

Alright, the group is created and the name and password is up on the Freshlaw boards. I also sent a Facebook message out to everyone who is currently in the UT Law Class of 2009 Facebook group with the same information, so if you're in that group already just check your messages.

Like I said on the Freshlaw boards and in the facebook message, I've been through this before as an undergrad, so if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Oh, and for those of you who were wondering about the price, here's what my bill broke down to:

Longhorn All Sports Pass (LASP): $70
Student Season Tickets: $60
Guest Ticket for all games: $365 (This one is optional, and most don't get it, so don't let the price scare you)
Oklahoma Ticket: $85 (also optional, though I'd recommend it - even if you don't go you can sell it)
Processing fee: $6
Total: $586

Also, it looks like they tickets will be print at home, which will make it next to impossible to sell the high-demand home game tickets (Ohio State and A&M), which isn't a consideration for me, but may be for some. I'm not sure about the Guest Ticket, however, it may just be a regular ticket that can be sold - but that's just idle specualtion on my part.

Many, many thanks for setting up the group.  I can't wait 'til the OSU game!

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?
