So if I am charge of a company and we find out Sunday night that we have landed a big event, it is all hands on board meeting to get ready for this HUGE HISTORICAL event. Yes, it is a holiday weekend but how many of you did a little work over the weekend. Instead, it appears that the VT ticket office takes the path of least resistance and inconveniences out of town alumni. Come on JW, make this thing happen the right way.
- LOOKS LIKE AN EXCELLENT WAY TO MAKE SURE N C A A WOULD NEVER ALLOW VT TO HOST AGAIN IN THE FUTURE... CERTAINLY MANY OF WEALTHIEST CONTRIBUTORS & BIG GIVERS DON'T LIVE IN BBURG. UNLESS SOME SECRETIVE BEHIND THE SCENES ADVANCE RESERVATION TICKET BUYING PROCESS FOR THAT GROUP OF DONORS IS NOT ACCOMODATED......EXPECT AN ARMAGEDDON TO TAKE PLACE FOR PRESIDENT, BOV, ATHLETIC DIRECTOR, ETC ETC.
CERTAINLY COMES ACROSS AS UNFAIR, ARCHAIC, AND SUICIDAL (in terms of a university administration shooting itself in the head)
PAYBACKS CAN BE HELL IF BIG ALUMS & DONORS BOXED OUT AND/OR FORCED TO MAKE SPECIAL DRIVE TO BBURG -IN ADVANCE - TO STAND IN LINE & BUY TICKETS ---GOD HELP EVERYONE IF THEY RUN OUT AFTER WAITING IN LINE. I'M SURE THE OTHER COMPETING SCHOOLS FANS & ADMINISTRATION NOT BEING FORCED TO DRIVE TO BBURG IN ADVANCE IN ORDER TO SUPPORT THEIR TEAM. UNLESS THIS IS STRAIGHTENED OUT---DON'T EXPECT VT TO HOST 2ND ROUND IF THEY GET THAT FAR.

I dunno. I'm going to dial back my e-outrage here until I have a better sense of the real ticket demand.
No trees were harmed in the making of this post. However, billions of electrons were horribly inconvenienced.
Requiring cash only the day of the game at the field is not that big a deal to me. they are 5,10, and 15 bucks. Shouldn't be that hard to have that cash on you if you buy at the door.
The copy written for the ticket sales on the web page is awful. Too many questions left unanswered.
