    CSU football fans snatched up more than half of the 1,200 tickets made available Monday for the Sept. 6 season-opening game against the University of Colorado in Boulder.

    Single-game tickets for the general public went on sale Monday morning, and fans began lining up at 5 a.m. at the Fum McGraw Center ticket office.
    "Conservatively, I'd say we had about a dozen people in line," said Gary Ozzello, Colorado State University's senior associate athletic director. "Several were CSU students who said they had arrived there at 5 a.m."

    Ozzello said business was brisk all morning as fans bought tickets in person, by phone and online.

    "I can tell you we have less than 500 remaining from the 1,200 that we started with," Ozzello said late Monday afternoon.

    "About a dozen" and it was a conservative estimate. They may have had as many as 13 or, dare I say it, 14 people in line for tickets! :rock:

    its funny because they are bitching about the prices of tickets for CSU students for an away game. our alumni club shipped 200+ of us out to lawrence last year, which included travel, hotel room, game ticket, and food for $100 a pop. they can't do the same, at a much more reasonable location? god i'm annoyed by csewe.

    Selling half of their 1200 ticket single game allotment is something to crow about? Hilarious.

    But this is what was left over after their season ticket holders bought some right? In other words, they got more than 1200 tickets, right?

    That's the last time it was in Folsom, right? Because I definitely remember that one (or maybe even both) of the years that it was in Boulder recently that the lammies couldn't even sell out their allotment of 5000. :lol: Yet they the have about 30K fans there when the game is played in Invesco. :confused: :confused:

    My reading of it was that the 1,200 tickets described were "single game sales" -- in other words, they were tickets that weren't sold as part of the season ticket process.

    That's what I'm thinking too even though the article didn't state that.
