what makes you think clemson wont use all its allotment?
My sense is that their traveling fanbase has been dwindling each time - huge in 2013, much smaller in 2015, tough to judge in 2017 (Friday night) and there'll be less appeal for an early September game, since a lot of them like to make a fall vacation to the Northeast (leaf-peeping, etc.) but might not do so at a time when the weather in Syracuse is more or less exactly like it is back in South Carolina (green and warm).

But who knows, maybe they'll be more excited about a Game Day event between two teams who've been evenly matched in the last couple games.

All of it is semantics at this point.

Come September 14, given we are 2-0, it will be the toughest ticket to get in a long, long time.

EDITORS NOTE: I was able to get two tickets to the Miami game in 1998 pretty easily for face value, as a senior in high school courtesy of the Syracuse.com message board. I think the likelihood of someone getting a ticket face value a week before the game for this one is a lot less likely, if we are 2-0 and look decent.
We'll still get the sob stories posted on the board with people begging for tickets

I may one of those people lol! My grandfather thinks it’s dumb to buy tickets this early and that we will find 2 on ticketmaster a week or two before

Because I know they haven't. Doesn't mean those seats won't sell - but again - these things take time and momentum. I believe SU sells out this game, but we still have a way to go

And storange I don't mean to give you a hard time at all here ... tickets is a close to home subject for me lol so I'm particular on it and the message SU sends out.

Again I believe this is all semantics and we get to a sell out ... just have a little work to do between now and Sept 14

We also just got an email last week about away game tickets going on sale so it's still super early.

There are zero tickets shown in group areas. If they sold those out already I would be stunned.

Tie that in with some student tickets and the clemson area (Clemson isn't using their full alotment)

Also adding the thousands of season tickets that are shown on the map, and the ones the general public can't see.

Maybe 20k is too high. That number is not below 15k though. I know that building. I know the game that's played with what is shown and what is not.

In my best estimation I would say we need about 15k seats sold to get to a sell out, and I believe we get there. Things will pick up big time in August.
15k

5k students
5k Clemson
5k seasons/packages/groups

Well not counting Nooners...that is. I've seen some Noon kickoffs with the students at maybe 100.

Although we should be seeing less of those.

This coming from a guy who actually overslept for an afternoon class one time in college. LOL
Anything is possible!

Oh I know. That's why I surprised that they already knew what they needed (which wasn't the full allotment)

An interesting projection - seeing as how there is probably around 20k seats still available
really? where did you get that number?

im sure they are holding quite a few back... but it cant be 20k can it?

also - i dont think the dome can hold over 50k anymore.

Do you know if there is an ACC rule on a minimum number of tix that have to be given to the visiting team?

I don't know for sure. I know they have gotten WAY better about the allotment's because you used to be able to return tickets the week of the game. So if you ever noticed like NO ONE in sections 313-315 (upper corner above gate C) that was part of the reason why. Schools got 5k tickets in the past (they could request more [see LSU]) but then they'd return seats the week of the game and 2k tickets in the first however many rows of those sections were untouched.

They have gone away from that. I don't know the exact number but I believe Clemson only asked for around 3500 this year. It's possible SU holds some back for a few months in case Clemson comes back saying hey we need X more, then they can stick them in that corner)

I do recall SU getting upset when we played @ UVA because of the location of the visitor allotment

I edited to 15k.

I know there are tons of seasons still available, I do not trust group sales on this game THIS early, and lastly on the totem pole I do not trust students for this game from kickoff. I trust by the end of Q1 it will be filled in but a beautiful day in september is tough to beat right away lol.

Again - i do believe we sell out. It's going to be electric... just some work to do still

FWIW, I don't see Syracuse pulling 5k students for a game. That's what, one out of four students?
