Default WBB seat fee ripoff

Outrageous 500% increase coming for people in first four rows. This is going to price me out, a loyal fan who drives down from Charlotte for most games.

Spoken like someone not impacted by this. We'll see if they give us an option other than "start over." I definitely think it's a crappy thing to do to fans. We sat in worse seats for years to work our way down.

Talk about entitled. If you can't afford it, sit in the cheaper seats.

I'm paying the higher price to stay in my seats. There are plenty of cheap seats remaining.

It cost to be one of the best. Same posters complaining are the same ones that will complain that USC should have spent more money if our program falls behind others.

Yes. It's not just basketball. The whole world is like that. Money talks and a lot of money talks louder. I have been to 2 basketball games and 4 football games in the last 10 years. I just cannot afford it.

I guess you should feel lucky you had your chance to have those seats while they were still cheap. so now you have to go to the fifth row because that is the best you can afford? Poor baby. Maybe they don't sell so great and the price comes down who knows.

I called about this when it was first announced and was told that those who did not retain their seats in the affected areas would indeed "start over." Basically you would go back into the pool and select new seats based on giving level and points. It has been a few months since I talked to the ticket office so maybe they have rethought this.

By the way similar seats for MBB have the same premium.

Thanks for the info, that's what I was afraid of. If they'd give me an option to move back a few rows I'd take it.
(Also thanks for not being a douchebag.)
