PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
I usually have a decent hook up for home games. I spent $250 for the game at Texas in '06 though. Worth every penny... Austin was awesome.
I would not pay much over $100, unless it was a bowl game, and a good one at that.

in hindsight, overpaid grossly for the '06 version of "the game", considering the beatdown known as 41-14... paid $500 for 11AA.
Season ticket cost breakdown (President's Club):
$2,500 annual donation to OSU (tax deductible)
2 seats x 8 games x $70 = $1,120
$2,500 + $1,120 / 16 = $226.50
Subsidizing Youngstown State, Toledo, Akron, Bowling Green, and f***ing UAB... Priceless.
Around how much do you have to donate a year to guarantee/almost guarantee season tickets? Not quite sure how it works. I'm a student right now so I don't have to worry about it for a couple years, but I'm definitely trying to make sure I can get tickets post-graduation.
$2,500 ensures a season ticket application from OSU Presidents Club, or $1,500 will get you one if donation is made directly to OSU Department of Athletics Buckeye Club.
Sorry, I get that working out to 2570. I think you need to add some parenthesis and PEMDAS. (Sorry, my math degree makes me think this is funny :).)
I don't even know what a PEMDAS is... (Dammit.)
($2,500 + $1,120) / 16 = $226.25
Just curious, what made you decide to donate to Presidents Club instead of Buckeye Club? I've been giving to Buckeye Club ever since I graduated but am considering giving to Presidents Club as well for the academics (and another pair of tickets).

My company's matching gift policy ultimately drove me in this direction. While donations to the Department of Athletics are not eligible for matching gift treatment, gifts to other areas such as academics, health and human services, etc., are eligible.
I figured why just give Buckeye Club $1,500 and get no leverage from my company's foundation when I can put up $1,250 out of my pocket and have that matched 100% which ends up putting $2,500 in OSU's coffers and I still get my season ticket application.
P.S. I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think you could get two separate season ticket applications (one from Buckeye Club, and one from President's Club) in the manner you describe above. I could be wrong though, and would love to know if I am. Can anyone advise on this matter?
Most I ever paid (well my wife paid for them on Ebay for my Bday) 105 a piece for 5AA seats against Iowa...yep the one that went into Overtime. These were GREAT seats though, right down to the left of the goal post in the south end. My wife and I were right beside the ROTC guys and most if not all were Buckeye fans from or around Ohio. Good stuff...good times...got 2 tickets for 29 A each game not for sale BTW: Miami, Nebraska, and tTUN for 70 a piece...yep...i said 70 a piece (not sure where this 1-50 dollar a piece nonsense generated from but bet those were/are NICE seats...). More good times to come, indeed there will be;-)

Student tickets are like $35 a piece, and the seats only depend on class status and timing. You can get them for that or under in games that don't matter or when the weather is bad.
Hey Ladies and Gents, I was wondering what is the best way to get a hold of some cheaper tickets. I was recently medically retired from the Marine Corps. I am un able to work due to my combat injuries now. So my income is not very good. I only make about 25 a year. Anyways. I was wondering what are the best avenues to get cheaper tickets for a game. I understand that I will never be able to afford a scum game in Ohio stadium, but the tickets to OCC games online are still out of my reach. I would greatly appreciate any ideas on this matter. I have been an Ohio State fan since I was about ten years old (30 now). I have never been to an actual game in Ohio Stadium other than this years spring game. I am not looking for hand outs. Just want some inside ideas on how I might be able to attain a cple tickets for a game that will not have my family and I eating top ramen for a couple months. I appreciate any ideas. Thanks ahead of time.

It may be tough getting seats below face value for games at the Shoe. You can try scalpers who try to unload tix for cheap after kickoff, especially the early OOC games. Your best bet might be getting tix to an away game at places like Indiana, Purdue, or Illinois. You can usually get a ticket for around $50 and they're almost like OSU home games with the number of our fans that travel.
Stubhub isnt discounted I don't think, but it isnt awful. Right now there are some Nebraska at OSU tics for $84 a piece. That's not chump change- especially if you're taking the family- but its hard to find much cheaper.
Facebook marketplace. They have a lot of student tickets, to which you might need to find some IDs.
Thank you. I will try some of these options. I have gotten to see them at different venues, like Purdue, IU, Northwestern, and Washington. Just never have been to a real game at The Ohio Stadium.
Never paid more than $78. My aunt got her season tickets with the cushioned seat backs in 2010 and she allocated the cost of that to each game ticket. I got tickets on StubHub last year to the Colorado game for about $45 and the MSU game for $30 (seats weren't the best).
Class of 2010.
I've gotten them through Stubhub with decent results. Also gotten tickets from customers of mine, that just happened to be OSU alumni that couldn't make a particular game for whatever silly azz reason. Paid face value for them.
I scapled a pair in 05 v.s. Minnesota. Paid 160 for a pair of seats in the second row on the 30 yard line. I slapped Brutus' hand. Didn't have to miss script Ohio to get them either, and I got to see this happen right in front of me.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wL-4aYmMGk
...... After it happened I thought "oh no, baby Ted Ginn!" after his comments after Tatgate it makes me laugh now.
Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.
