What's the most you'd be willing to pay to attend an average OSU home game?

Completely depends on where the seats are located and opponent.  Overall, I'm in the middle.  ~$100

I've been to so many games that going to an "average game" doesn't really excite me as much as it used to. I'd much rather stay at home and watch. However, the most I have ever paid for an average game was Braxtons freshman year against Indiana, I think I dropped almost 150 for that pathetic game.

That was the last non-Michigan game I've been to at the Shoe.  My alumni tickets were for it, which I think were $75 a piece for two.

I went to the Buffalo game last year and left at halftime, something I never thought I would do as a Buckeye fan. That will be the last time I go to a non marquee game

most i ever pay now is face value plus the donation in order to get season tickets.  I have made plenty of money off of selling the 2 seats we don't use for most games and it literally has cost me a little over 1500 bucks since 2001 when I started buying tickets, because of the value I recoup from the other 2 seats throughout the year.  Especially the big games every year and every other year for Michigan.  That being said the prices are getting outlandishly high

I live in AZ but I try to make it to a one game a year. Between flights, hotel, restaurants, etc, the price of a ticket, even if it's a couple hundred bucks, is the least of my problems. I pay it gladly.

Is this poll asking for total cost or just ticket cost? Because the two are not the same and the wording of the question leaves it up to interpretation.

I stopped going go average games. The crowd doesn't care as much as I do and the team sometimes plays down to the opponent so it's a bit of a let down. I went to scUM last year for face value, paid $100 for USC. $165 for The U. By comparison Penn State in 02 cost me $50. It's crazy to pay this much but it must be done.

I can t even find tickets under $200.
