UI’s Statement Re: BSU-UI Sellout

RE: University of Idaho AD refuses to discuss ticket shortage/Argonaut

UI athletic department issued this news release after tickets to the UI-BSU game sold out: "While we are sympathetic to those who were not able to obtain a ticket, we established policies in 2006 to address events where we anticipated demand would exceed stadium capacity. Both the 2006 and 2008 games against Boise State were sold out with students and the general public turned away because the venue was at capacity. In anticipation of strong demand for this year’s BSU game, we halted sales to the general public in late August to protect the allotment for student use. Additionally, guest pass sales were halted early afternoon Monday. We acknowledge student fees are paid to athletics but the fees do not guarantee tickets to athletics events because of the capacity of our venues."

Question: Do you have a ticket to see the University of Idaho-Boise State football game?
