MSU will accept your money, the donation will determine your status for the 2012-2013 fiscal year, just like everyone else. Gotta take care of your regular donors, not the people who are only in it for one event. Which long-time donor do you think you should get tickets over? That's assuming the allotment sells out. If it doesn't, fight for tix with the rest of the public. Make sure to open threads that refer to erections this week.
I live in Phoenix and still maintain season tickets to football. I usually only make 2 home games a year, but I can typically easily sell the rest or I donate them to Sparrow for sick kids to use. I also donate as much as I'm able. Thus, when I called for tickets I got them. I mean, why the hell should someone who generates basically zero revenue for the AD get priority over donors who want to buy tickets. That makes zero sense and would be a poor business model. It would also lead to a huge chunk of MSU's ticket allotment going to scalpers who would then mark the tickets up and deny alums the ability to get to the game. My advice to you is to stop crying like a bitch, head down to US Air and just scalp some tickets. I doubt they'll be that expensive.

I'm pretty sure each team gets 500 tickets. Good luck.

Join the alumni association, or throw as little as $100 bucks to the Spartan fund and you'll get all the requests you can handle. Hell, you could just log on to msuspartans.com and you'll get solicited.
In other words, try participating in some miniscule way. I mean if you lose all contact with your University for 10 years after graduating, how the hell is the school supposed to know where the F you even are? Do you expect them to independently track the movement of half a million alums? Are the they the friggin NSA?
U mad bro?

1,200. Demand is said to be very high.
I just donated to the Spartan fund.

No she won't, but her computer does.....
Guess I should have included the , but thought that I was over the top enough not to need it!
I'm sure that $10 will go a long way.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
I'm not going into too much detail here, about your situation or my own. However, I agree that MSU does have some serious problems--from the way it sells and markets tickets to the way it reaches out to prospective students. They are doing such a shitty job with new applicants that my daughter might end up at UofM (she's been accepted to both schools).
Its five o'clock somewhere.
5000.00 donor level can request 2 tix to PHX
10k starts where you can request 4 tix to PHX
They consider your donations from July 1st 2010-June 30th 2011. ----If they didn't do that many people wouldn't donate unless they had to and would jump in atthe last minute.... I get pissed off when ATT or Verizon offers people 10x better deals than what I have allthough I've been paying them for 10 years....... decent analogy I hope.
For Columbus they got 550 tickets and 90 were allocated for the players -doesn't include coaches etc...
Hope this helps a little.
I'm not going and if I would be allowed to buy my allocation and leave them in your name I would but you have to be the person of record on the account and pick them up in person at team hotel on Wed or the box office on Thursday.
That being said, please warn all the ladies in Phoenix that 2 pump Pitino is coming to town....

Yup 1,200 tickets available to MSU seems like not a lot
1200 is nothing for MSU fan base.
Plenty of tickets on stubhub for decent prices http://www.stubhub.com/ncaa-tournament-west-regional-tickets/ncaa-tournament---west-regional-tickets-3-22-2012-1067325/
It appears based on the availability map of tickets on stubhub that each school might get one lower section and 3 upper sections of tickets. I'm just speculating and based on the other regionals I have been to, that makes sense.
That's not MSU's problem. That's The NCAA.
Been donating to the fund for at least 5 years (and I am more miles away from MSU than you), but I always buy tickets from scalpers and not through the ticket office. If you want to sit in the rafters with horrible seating, buy from the ticket office. It either takes a big donation, or a long time of giving to work your way into good seats. I know from having losy seats at the big ten tournament for 3 years in a row. If you want good seats for about the same price as you can get from the ticket office, buy from scalpers.
how do people that buy tickets on stub hub collect them? we won't be able to get them in time for the games, most likely.
I have had them overnighted to me (on the seller's dime after I paid the basic shipping fee), printed them off via the instant delivery option, and left at will call.
This thread just inspired me to donate $100 to the Spartan Fund
They shouldn't have to ask you.
just watch it on TV, works for me. I only donate $50 to Charter once a month.

Every once in a while I get free tix to MSU events because of a source in the department.
This. I get better tickets usually by not donating and giving it to a broker instead.
