    Which leads to the question. I wonder what the percentage is how many of the tickets sold by scalpers are legitimate?

    No way to enforce that kind of transaction 100% of the time. There aren't enough cops. Just walking around the Coliseum a few hours before kickoff (not this year, tho), people walk by and constantly try to buy and sell tickets.

    with the on line capabilities you can buy from ticket resellers on your phone. Those are legit.

    Me and my wife drove and paid to park at Stanford-USC game a few years back. Bought our tickets on her phone and went to game. Waited till prices started coming down right before game.

    Far, far too many people don't know this is possible.

    The universities should publicize it, even set up a few validation kiosks around the stadium on game days.

    In theory, a good idea. I wonder how they'd be able to do that in states with anti-scalping laws--even in states where those aren't enforced?

    LSU isn’t going to encourage that behavior. They want every one of your pennies.

    They could just check to make sure the tickets were good. They wouldn't have to know what the selling price was.
