When it comes to tickets to LSU football, freshmen students get the scraps. Upperclassmen and the public get the first crack, forcing freshmen to sometimes resort to scalping tickets to get entry to Tiger Stadium. A Louisiana state representative is not a fan of the current system, calling it a “crime” that freshmen students pay as much as $300 for scalped tickets.
State Rep. Terry Brown has introduced a bill that would require the LSU Board of Supervisors to offer incoming freshmen tickets to all home games.
Story here. To the extent that the Invariance Hypothesis Coase Theorem holds, this proposed change in property rights wouldn't put more freshman fannies in the seats at Tiger Stadium. But it would put more cash in their pockets when they turn around and resell their tickets.
