MSU has no tickets for NCAA Tournament

In an unbelievable turn of events, Mississippi State does not have any tickets available for sale for the Midwest Tournament because the NCAA, in their infinite wisdom, did not allot tickets for each school for the NCAA Tournaments. They let the folks selling tickets at the various locations sell tickets without putting any aside for the schools participating in the events. Since the NCAA Midwest Tournament has completely sold out of tickets, that means MSU has no tickets available for sale.

So much for setting up a new fan-friendly NCAA Tournament system where the NCAA would put schools geographically closer to the NCAA Tournament that they participated in so that more fans could attend.

Now that I've got that out of my system, let's see if we can find out where the 19,000 tickets went. If any of you live in the Dallas or surrounding areas, please contact me if you know of any corporation that purchased tickets and would be willing to sell them. Or, if you know of other legitimate sources that have tickets available for sale, have them contact me. There have got to be tickets available for sale.

BTW, in case you are wondering about the the laws in Dallas, tickets cannot be sold for over 115% of the face value of the ticket.

P.S. If you are a scalper that is trying to sell tickets for the $600 to $700 prices that I have seen the internet, don't even waste your time calling me.
