Don't send me my Dear John, you are too lowly to get your BCS tickets, letter (for clarification, I did order but did not expect to get them--4tx in Bama club for 8 years) and then immediately hit me with back to back emails offering the opportunity to buy BCS t shirts and shit. I didn't expect to get tix but that doesn't mean I am happy about it and I am not ABOUT to give you any more money right now. I understand how the program works and understand supply and demand but don't offer a consolation prize just right now. If you want me to come fix your poor marketing effort, toss me 4 tickets to the game and we can talk. Thanks for indulging the rant!!! RTR!
Poorly timed for sure. I feel ya.
Dear Toss Sweep,
From a student who stands in line for 2 hours to sit in the corner of the endzone every week, and pays $5k plus a semester to the University, you can kiss my butt. Or you can drive to Miami with the rest of us to represent, sit in a bar and give the Domers hell.
10 thousand students who never had a chance to get a ticket.
I am a graduate and paid my tuition as well. Do as you will and I am sure you always do your part from an attendance standpoint, but if I were a student I would avoid challenging someone until the student section has been completely full AT LEAST once. Seems like I saw a thread about that somewhere...............

Is there 10,000 in the student section, I saw it an hour after western Carolina and it looked empty except for 10 pledges getting cups.... Lol. Didn't want to miss a chance to get this conversation steered to where it is going.
Do either of you know if our OC or DC will coach the bowl game? VBG cant we all just get along? Haha jk
I was really sort of surprised he (or she) went there????
Let me get in on this. I'm a Bama alumnus who paid tuition, I am a member of Tide Pride with a whopping 40 points and I paid $1300 a ticket to go to the game. What do I win?

The up vote you received was from me and it is there because the down vote apparently wouldn't work, so I checked to see if for some reason neither would work...
OP didn't complain about not getting tickets, and seems to me you have the same opportunity to buy them that OP does. I can't afford them either, but I'm not whining about it.
I feel you pain, I have been a season tickets holder for 22 years...No tickets for me...
Mule gets an upvote to make up for the inadvertent upvote he gave the thread heckler (lol)! And again, I am not bitching about NOT getting tickets, well maybe a little, but just please don't try to sell me stuff immediately after you hand me the bad news! The marketing group should either know that or should be all be fired.
tide pride point system SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How would you suggest they do it?
The only people happy about the ticket allocation are the people that got them. I'm an alumnus and Tide Pride member with not enough points, paid my way to Pasadena, New Orleans (purchased ticket reservations at the beginning of the year), and this year's SEC. Do I expect to get 2 tickets, no. Am I going to cry in my beer, no, if I want to go I'm going to put up the $. People with 500+ points deserve the tickets end of story. Lots of hard work and loyalty to get that many points.
For starters, limit the number of tickets to either four tickets per member, or one bowl ticket per season ticket they have, whichever is smaller.
Oh my gosh. You should get down- voted into oblivion.
