Schools get a cut of their presale tickets because they are sold to their hometown fans. How would the ticket people at the gate know who is buying tickets.....I'm assuming you're not advocating that they have to ask each and every person waiting in line if they are a fan of one of the participating schools. What then, ID? The lines would be ridiculously slowUh yeah. Q was why not a cut at the gate? And why we put up w/ it? Schools need it. And deserve it. Ohsaa does too but $1 is crap.
