I needed 8 together and GC would only allow me 4 priority and 4 others (wouldn't be together with initial 4). So I went through bowl site (Ticketmaster) and got 6th row upper deck at face- no delivery charges since I opted to print at home. This way I got exactly what I wanted- I picked the seats. For what it's worth, when the GC opened to the public yesterday, tix where I'm at are same price but couldn't have gotten 8 together unless I wanted to go up to higher rows. So I'm happy! Go Cocks!

Yep... This is what I did... When you can pick which seats you want to sit in, that is hard to beat. The GC ticket office needs to get with the program... They will continue to not sell as many tickets the way they do business right now

Usually you can ask them to just have them assign all 8 in second priority. Instead of getting the first 4 and then letting others go before giving you the second selections. But you still wouldnt of been able to pick the seat like with the ticket sites.

Surprisingly, even though there is a massive group of Michigan alumnus on the west coast of Florida, there were a pretty even number of Gamecocks versus Michigan fans at the game.

<p>Since the tickets are going pretty cheap on these sights,,, we should see alot of Garnet in Orlando. I know alot of people who are going and making a small vacation of it because the prices are reasonable. My wife forbidded me to buy tickets,,, she told me I should wait. I think that's my Christmas present. I don't have to worry about lodging because I have family from SC that live in Deltona. So all I need is gas, food, and tickets.</p>

The Gamecocks have distributed 9,000 of their allotted 12,500 tickets to their Jan. 1 Capital One Bowl game appearance against Wisconsin and are confident demand will continue through game day, senior associate athletics director Charles Bloom said Tuesday.- The State

The allotment sold is apparently ahead of the Outback last year and the Capital One in 2012.

This is what I read as well. Im guessing we will have somewhere near 20K (this is how many Carolina fans were in Tampa last year--estimated)

Got our tickets. Once again the Gamecock Club screwed us. Not only did they put us in the end zone corners, they split our 5 tickets up into 3 and 2 seats.

Never again GC, never again. From now on I'll only buy from the bowl itself.

I wonder how often this happens. It seems I've read where several people have said it's more beneficial to buy from outlets other than the school. Sorry to hear your tickets aren't what you had hoped, but I'm glad you'll be there! I'm envious of all who will be.

Sorry to hear they did that to you. Looks like Ray has some work to do with the Gamecock Club and how they handle post-season ticket sales. Imagine if we were in a BCS game and this kind of crap happened.

I think they are trying to be better but they have some issues still. I called to see how my tix would be assigned and didn't like what I heard. I let the girl on the phone know that we would be ordering our tickets through another avenue despite our combined 50 years of GC Club membership.

We decided to wait and order them through stubhub. Got 4 lower level mezzanine for 100 each when they were 92 through the club.

Yeah, I have not bought tickets through the GC since the Independence Bowl. I blame some of it on what tickets the bowl offers the GC, but there are so many ways they can improve how they handle ticket requests. For one thing, when you call the GC ticket office, have people answering the phones that have a clue. I asked the guy basic questions, and he acted like I was speaking another language. Pretty sad.

Acock Now: that sucks, but I'm not surprised.
