There are over 32,000 undergraduates and 17,000 postgraduates. The total student ticket allotment is 21,500. Seriously, what does UF have to do to sell tickets for a whopping $105 per season package? (Cue the “win more than four games” talk).
I remember a time when I contracted literally every phone in both my dorm building and back home to get tickets.

Apparently every promotional idea the Gators have tossed out this year has fallen short, according to GatorBait.net.
Florida has continued trying to sell its remaining tickets with various marketing promotions such as the chance to run onto the field with the team in the opener against Idaho, the chance to be an honorary Mr. Two Bits for the second game against Eastern Michigan and a “Rally in the Swamp,” on Aug. 24, where students can “join student athletes, meet Albert & Alberta and members of the spirit squads, win prizes, learn Florida traditions” and receive free pizza.
Maybe offer up Tim Tebow’s virginity? Sheesh.
In all kinds of weather, folks. Dammit.
I’m not saying I’m angry, but I’m not not angry.
