Is 124 definitely a Cornell section, or are you buying where you can because the Cornell operation is only an "intent to buy tickets" situation?

At the moment Ticketmaster doesn't seem able to secure me two tickets in any of the locations it claims are available; it just keep switching me back and forth between rows and telling me another fan got there first, then switching back to the previous row it already said someone had snagged. I don't know how to get past this.

Never mind - turned out there just weren't any pairs left available in 124 (I discovered that by trying for "just Saturday";), and TM didn't know how to handle that. I'm submitting through Cornell's form for part of their allocation, and we'll take our chances that way.

main thing is that the cornell deal is a 2 session package not a single session deal. sunday tickets will be available once the first day is done.

I just kept trying different sections and rows on the list and eventually got one. Also would suggest trying to start a new search to reset things.

I'm in 107 L seat 7.

Thank you. With the benefit of that information, we reversed course again and bought the two-day pass through TM. Section 125, Row H, seats 11-12. Toward the top of the section but we're excited. Jeffrey Anbinder '94 and Daina Schatz '03.

By the looks of Sat & Sun TM pages, all 4 corner sections behind the netting are blank. I'm guessing that's where they will be putting the bands. If so, we're 102?

We're going to buy at the arena. It seats 12,239. BU, Cornell and two others are not going to fill the place. Still annoyed we're not in Allentown. But Worcester is big enough we can go to the game and once Cornell wins we'll make arrangements on AirBnB. Or if need be drive back.

Ticketmaster is now saying there are no seats available for Saturday's game.

When I went back and refreshed a few minutes later, I was able to purchase. There were no tickets available in the Cornell sections 102, 123, 124, 125, but I was able to get seats in Section 101.

Are you picking seats from the seating chart, or only able to ask for best seats?

I just looked and can pick from a lot of seats. When we first tried, a number of us got in some endless loops, se Beeeej above.

Try a different browser.

Got tickets in 121, hopefully we can actually go since I have to move some patients off my saturday schedule. I am pretty pissed at Ticketmaster for quoting one price and then increasing it by 30% in small print in the bottom of the payment page with no breakdown of fees. I was shocked when I got the email with the total cost. Looks like we are only going to Saturday and may need to mortgage our house!

A. Probably, but there's no guarantee.

Many people from all four schools will probably have bought Saturday-only tickets, which means those same seats will be available Sunday - not to mention the people who buy two-day passes but whose teams get knocked out will try to sell on the secondary market. Many of the latter group will try to sell Saturday right after they lose, not wait around until Sunday, but you might also get such tickets third-hand from an enterprising entrepreneur who buys them on Saturday from such departing fans.

this. if you have access to a printer or a seller with digital tickets you'll be able to buy them on stubhub and probably on the cheap.

You'll be able to unofficially improve your seat. Just stake out an empty one near the cornell section. It'll be obvious by teh empty seats at gametime, since fans from michigan and NU likely won't be there for much of the first game.

For current students only, and a very limited number of those, and most of them subsidized by alumni. Are you offering to do the same for Cornell?

I didn't want to chance it and bought the all session ticket through CU Athletics. Probably would have been a much better idea to just buy at the venue. Oh, well.

Any idea if we get two paper tickets at Will Call to Saturday's game? I have very little interest whatsoever in watching the second game, and would want to unload my ticket to that game if possible. Not sure if it's just one paper ticket that gets you into the arena, and, once you're in, you're in.

It would be nice if the students and band had millionaire (billionaire) white knight donors. The university certainly produces its share of filthy rich asshole alumni, but one of the characteristics of filthy rich asshole alumni is they're assholes.

IINM Cornell has the lowest alumni giving rates of all the tier 1 schools -- dramatically lower than the other Ivies. One possibility is we produce a higher percentage of saintly alumni who go into fields for reasons other than money and lack the means to give. Another possibility is we draw disproportionately from New York City, Long Island, and other myopic, avaricious cesspits of human character. Another possibility is we realize Cornell is, in all its other aspects except hockey, a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.

It's not going to sell out Saturday in Worcester when four teams play. It will even more certainly not sell out Sunday. Cornell travels well but not that well. There are 12,239 seats available for hockey.

BU doesn't want to be embarrassed by no students willing to brave the long drive to Worcester. The interest of BU students in BU hockey is 10 to the something less than in Ithaca. Our son who alas matriculated at BU got paid to operate the penalty box at Agganis Arena. What Cornell undergrad wouldn't jump at the chance to sit at ice level between the blue lines, paid or not?

100 level = lower bowl at Worcester DCU, formerly Centrum
200 level = upper bowl, separate from lower
300 level = balcony along the long sides of the rink only

100 and 200 level seats are on sale both, so the upper part is open. I haven't seen 300 level seats mentioned, But they look to be less than 1,000 seats if you eyeball the seating chart.

Cornell seats (repeating info above)
101 (corner), 102 (pep band, behind goal), 125 (next to 101, effectively along goal line)
233 and 234 (behind 125), 235 (corner above 101)

Can't tell which end Cornell is attacking. More often I've seen the band (at tournament sites) behind the goal Cornell defends twice. A cursory search didn't turn up which section(s?) BU is assigned to. I think the fact that the Cornell band (and I assume whatever high school BU hires to play) are in the lower bowl suggests little fear of a sellout and the NCAA wants the bands where the cameras pick them up.

I will be joining fellow faithful watching on TV from sunny California. Please cheer extra loudly on our behalf. Is there an app for that?

If only there were some special cheer just for BU...:-D

Fans fearing Worcester DCU will sell out its seats, flip to WatchESPN and see the crowd (not) in 10,000-seat Bridgeport arena, 2,500 less than in Worcester. It appears to be under half-full. And Providence, the 2-seed, is only 90 minutes away.

And Bridgeport sold out or nearly so the first year they hosted the regionals.

I'll be there Saturday for sure, in Section 120. Me(2012) my dad ('76), my uncle ('90) my uncle's buddy('90) + 2. Probably won't be able to unofficially improve @abmarks due to the group but we'll bring the ruckus.

Official attendance was 4,250. I'd bet Worcester sees 10k 5hough, being Saturday as opposed to Friday and having better draws

Any thoughts on where to park? There's also a March for Our Lives nearby starting at noon (although should be smaller than the Boston one)

DCU Center is surrounded by public parking garages and lots.

Thanks.

Word on uscho forum is that Cornell returned 104 tickets, BU 23, Michigan 140, and NU 2. Not sure where the poster got the info, but there it is.

Maybe Cornell took 2X as many as the other schools, or our fans figured there were other ways to buy tickets.

By numbers it seemed a BU crowd. But I certainly think we were more vocal and enthusiastic.

We sat on the same side as NU and BU was diagonally across. I suspect the BU student ticket section was in upper deck, above the band. They had some cheers, but most of the rest of their fans were silent unless BU scored.

It's hard to know exactly how many other fans were for BU, but definitely there were a lot of anti-CU fans. You could see the whole other side of the rink cheering when BU scored. That side was BU and UM, but there wasn't a lot of Maize and Blue seen, so I'd guess it was mainly BU fans in those seats.

I didn't stay for the finals, but someone who did could probably relate how many UM fans were present.

I think the crowd is looking older each year. I don't yell as much or as loudly as I used to. The rink was too quiet at times and so was I.
