I assume our conference schedule has 5 home games. That would be a total of 6 home games. I don't think this deal could be done otherwise. TW report is that our other non-cons are at UTSA and Lamar at home.

I'm all for this by the way. I've been advocating this for years. Everytime the idea comes up to schedule a permanent game in Dallas with Tech or Baylor or whoever else came up, I said it was a bad idea. I always wanted to sign individual agreements with SEC teams to play a game every one to three years in either Houston or Dallas. While I prefer Dallas as a destination, Houston is probably better since we have had success recruiting Houston and we need to keep a presence there since aTm left the conference.

I believe so. We should get Baylor, KU, K-State, and OU at home. If I remember correctly there's an odd scheduling quirk where we get TCU at home two years in a row at the start.

This fits with holder's plan to raise ticket prices every other year. Have a season with seven home games, follow that with a season with six home games but keep ticket prices the same as the past season when you had seven home games. Then when you have seven home games the next season raise prices because you get an "extra" game. Shipping a game to another state helps keep that trend going. It's still better than ending up with another Savannah State. That was a disaster on so many levels.

Just so long as we never agree to play in Starkville again.
I had a blast in Starkville (ignoring the result). It was a long drive, but once we hit Mississippi.... it was Tunica for the night at the Grand Casino hitting the tables then getting up and drove over the Starkville.

Just reminded me so much of Stillwater. Great fans, but at the time we weren't really doing much (AT ALL) in terms of tailgating. Our Cyberpokes tailgated and a few others, but it was very-very few and far between. MSU fans tailgated like CRAZY, like the rest of the SEC, and we met up with Bulldog online fans who were wonderful hosts (amazing food). Turned me into a Missippissi State fan, if I had to root for a team besides the Cowboys.

Man, that was 13-years ago.

I'm glad someone else noticed this.

that sucks to hear for someone who lives 5 hours away from Stillwater and was really wanting to buy and hold season tickets for a long time starting next year...

i wouldn't base my decision whether to buy season tickets on what some anonymous poster says.

Lets look at it. In 2009 there were 8 home games. In 2010 there were 7 home games but "tickets didn't go up" because they were the same price as 2009, despite having one less game. In 2011 there were six home games and "tickets didn't go up", despite having one less game. This year, there are 7 games and tickets went up! Why? Because when it is in the Athletic Dept's favor, they will use the price per game from the previous season, but when it is not, they won't.

The guy who mentioned that was correct, albeit anonymous.

Now, I do agree with what you're saying...tickets are still a good thing to start buying now.

I recommend purchasing WEZ if you're 5 hours out. It takes me 8 to get to STW and I had donor seats....were hard to get rid of for some games. WEZ games, since they are the cheapest, are generally pretty easy to get rid of.

You know what the people in Alabama say? "Thank God there's Mississippi" Because of a job I've lived in both Mississippi, and Alabama. All I can say is when I lived there the people down in that part of the world seemed to really work hard at being stupid, and obnoxious.
