Mr. Ho hear report from ATL radio station that UGA only sell 3,200 ticket so far to Liberty Bowl and he also hear that final ticket count through TMTDM ticket office will be north of 3,400 and that TMTDM official expect similar walk-out-of-woods crowd of 1,000 or more. Look for crowd similar to Old Southern Mississippi game which despite whatever CT-Martin tell themselves dwarf last year game and it also say one thing:

Despite rebuild football year and financial disaster we all experience this year, TMTDM is start finally become Division I school

Thanks for doin a little research for us, Ho! I never realized how few tickets were being sold through the schools. I always thought our ticket sales were pretty low until I saw this. We are pretty much right on trck with some of these "big time" schools especially when you look at the ratio of home game attendance to bowl ticket sales... which brings up another point: I would guess that only alumni know to buy tix, for the most part, through the school. Llook at how our alumni (and die yards that aren't) have always responded to buying tickets. We are outselling Georgia! Don't tell me our fans aren't loyal to the program!

Great job Troy. You guys travel extremely well. Here's some more bowl ticket sales notes:


Alabama sold out the 12,500 tickets it originally received and exceeded that, with more than 16,000 tickets sold through the UA athletic ticket office through late Wednesday afternoon.



Georgia Tech went the used-car salesman route for the Dec. 27 Independence Bowl. The school, in honor of its 14th consecutive bowl appearance, offered $14 tickets to the game in Shreveport, La., against Air Force.



The Fiesta Bowl has a nontraditional matchup between BCS regular Oklahoma and distant newcomer Connecticut, and both schools are coming up short.
Oklahoma is well short of selling its allotment, and UConn is even worse, with only about 4,000 tickets sold.


One peculiarly tough sell had been the Military Bowl in Washington, D.C. East Carolina, despite a 6-6 season, gobbled up its allotment of tickets and filled the team hotel within a couple of days of the selection show.
Maryland had sold all but 1,500 of its ticket allotment.


MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) West Virginia Mountaineers announced on Tuesday, tickets for the Champs Sports Bowl were slower than expected. First day tickets sales for WVUs Dec. 28 game against North Carolina State were about 2,800 tickets. The school was allotted 12,500 for the game, but they do expect to sell it out.
