AD Refuses To Discuss Ticket Shortage

Student ticket availability for the Nov. 12 football game against Boise State was scheduled to continue through Wednesday, but tickets were sold out by 4 p.m. Monday. Students were originally told they would be allotted their student ticket as well as the opportunity to buy two guest passes for $35 each. Lines started forming early Monday morning and extended outside the Kibbie Dome at points during the day before the final ticket was sold sometime between 3 and 4 p.m. UI Athletics spokeswoman Becky Paull said 5,400 tickets were allotted to students, up from the 4,400 that were originally made available, a change made in 2008. Director of Marketing and Licensing Nick Popplewell refused to comment on the topic and Athletic Director Rob Spear declined to be interviewed by a reporter outside his Kibbie Dome office, instead deferring to a departmental statement/Dara Barney, UI Argonaut.

Question: Isn't it cool that tickets to an Idaho Vandal football game are a hot commodity again?
