New OSU Alumni Ticket System makes Sense

Those of us that have graduated from OSU have a better chance at tickets to football games this season thanks to a change in ticket policy.  Members of the OSU Alumni Association got a letter recently that explained the new policy.

By Bill Smith

            In short, the legacy system that gave priority to those that have bought tickets for years has been scrapped for a more democratic system of an annual lottery.  Every paid member that applies for participation for the lottery will have an equal chance.

            According to Alumni association spokesman Jay Hansen, more than a thousand messages complaining about the legacy system were received.  In part, those messages were responsible for the change.

            This change is a good thing.  It will give more of the OSU faithful a chance to see games; the more the better.
