SEC title ticket more than a pair to each of the other five title games combined

David Paschall: Other title tickets low; not SEC's

If you possess a slew of frequent-flyer miles, the final weekend of the college football season offers quite the bargain.

As of Wednesday afternoon, there were plenty of $4 tickets for the ACC championship game between Florida State and Georgia Tech. There were $14 tickets for the Mid-American Conference title game (Northern Illinois vs. Kent State), $20 tickets for the Big Ten's (Nebraska vs. Wisconsin), $35 tickets for Conference USA's (Tulsa vs. Central Florida) and $50 tickets for the Pac-12's (UCLA vs. Stanford).

That's $123 to attend five of the six conference championships this weekend, or $246 if you bring a friend.

I will have a GREAT seat in front of my 60" led TV, no long wait for the bathroom, no wait for food and BEER (which you can't get at the dome unless you are in the club level) and to top it all off, no obnoxious Bama folks screaming "Roll Tide" Now why would I want to pay $324 to go see THAT!!!Now, Go Vols and let's get a Coach and right the ship

I sold my four tickets to the SEC Championship game for $1300 ($325 each).

I sold my two tickets to the Big 10 Championship game for $50 ($25 each).

The same thing happened last year.

ESPN should triple what they are paying the SEC to televise games. The market is proving it to be the best draw.

No surprise. Why waste time watching losers.

Well, I'll watch until I have to leave for the Mannheim Steamroller concert. Should be a good game. Both teams have proven vulnerable this year, so anything can happen, although I usually find it best to count on UGA falling short.
