I read where a lot of UT fans bought tickets thru Vandy because they didn't like where the UT seats were allocated. It got me to wondering, does the NCAA or SEC place any requirements on where the visiting fans are placed. I know UT puts visitors down around section A and B (great seats) and then others up in the top of the South end zone (not so great). Is that pretty standard, or are there places that we get no good seats at all? I know I've never gotten anything but the top of the end zone through UT when traveling to Bama and Florida, but hd very good seats for Georgia. Just wondering.....
Another ticket question: James Franklin (the Vandy coach, not the latest winner in the career-high-passing-day-against-Vols-D sweepstakes) tweeted that the Vandy ticket office has been instructed to only sell tickets to Vandy fans, not Vol fans. First, this is dumb because there is no way to really enforce this and if UT fans want tickets, they will get them. Second, this must mean that UT has already sold out of their allotment and is now running in to VU seats, right? Third, is this even allowed? It seems odd that the ticket office would be allowed to turn away willing purchasers.

I don't know that there are any requirements from the SEC or NCAA on visitor ticket allotments. Most schools offer some lower-level seats and a lot of upper-level seats to visitors. Georgia is probably the best example. At UGA, there are some visitor seats down low in the corner of the end zone and near the goal line. The rest are in the third deck that's along the east sideline at Sanford Stadium.

That doesn't necessarily mean UT sold out its allotment. Visiting fans buy from the home team all the time, even when the visitor's allotment hasn't sold out.
I don't know that Franklin was serious in his tweet, but like you said, that's kind of difficult to do, anyway. I'm sure Vanderbilt wasn't successful in preventing UT fans from buying some of those tickets. I'm guessing he was just trying to inspire Vandy fans to call and buy them.
