SOP at a NFL stadium, although Santa Clara is high even by NFL standards.  But that includes the stupidity tax.

 

 

 

Because if you're stupid enough to pay $14 for a beer......

If it were a true championship game where all D-1 teams had a chance before the season kicked off, then I'd probably watch.  This college fan wants to see the playoffs expand to give other teams a chance to play in it (like UCF this year).  I hope they have horrible ratings tonight.

It's the two best teams in the sport facing off at a neutral site. Enjoy the game for what it is.

I read today that they are having a hard time selling out the game.  Ticket prices are going down.  I will watch as long as it is interesting.  When Bama gets up by 14, I will turn on Netflix and watch a movie.  I must not be a fan as I have a hard time watching any team sporting event when I do not care who wins.

I will.  I'm pretty tired of these two teams being the supreme overlords, but the matchup itself is compelling and interesting enough to override that....this year at least.  If we get it again next year i might stop giving a shit tho

CFP Playoff: Ticket average plummets, empty seats likely

Despite optimism from CFP executives, the average price of tickets sold is set to hit a new low in 2019.
 
PUBLISHED: January 7, 2019 at 2:37 pm | UPDATED: January 7, 2019 at 3:04 pm

SANTA CLARA — Monday’s forecast calls for dry weather, but even low ticket prices and clear skies might not spark a last-minute run on College Football Playoff National Championship tickets.

With fewer than three hours remaining until kickoff, more than 4,000 tickets remained for sale on StubHub for the matchup between No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Clemson at Levi’s Stadium.

Though CFP executive director Bill Hancock and 49ers team president Al Guido expressed confidence the average price of tickets sold would compare favorably to title games played in 2015 and 2016, the latest StubHub data shows otherwise.

Face value for upper level tickets to the 2019 CFP National Championship game is $475, so barring an unexpected late run on sales, the average price of tickets purchased on the secondary market will finish near or below the cheapest face value ticket.

This year has shown that playoff expansion would be a futile effort where the very high probability would be the same teams in the title game and a further dilution of bowl season.

 

Keep the participation trophies in Orlando.

Proof positive California and the west in general sucks for college football fandom.  

 

And the Bay, Levi Stadium Oasis especially,  is the worst option in that state for college football.  $100 tickets is the cheapest part of that shitfest, travel and lodging is ridiculously expensive for Clemson or Bama fans.  The Bay got the game with the hope of expanding the regions college football fandom, and it predictably went horribly.

Nope. The CFP has turned out exactly as I thought it would when first conceived - the same handful of teams vying for the championship every year. 

I've seen this story before...

Not from what I’ve experienced, I can get a double Makers rocks for $12 at Soldier Field United Club.

I'll be watching the CFB championship game out of the corner of my eye on the small screen but watching the Predators vs Maple Leafs on the big screen.

Yep. A double Patron at the T&M is $20 and don't get me started on T-Mobile prices. Going to a Knights game is like paying for a mini vacation.

This thing will be in Vegas in a few years and you will see the true meaning of price gouging, lol.

I think Bama wins and covers, but I'm cheering for Clemson.

 

It's a matchup I'm bored of, but it's the last college football for 8 months and these are quite clearly the 2 best teams
