Students attempt to scalp student-section tickets to Duke-North Carolina

    I've been saying for years, as the admission standards continue going up at Duke that the douchiness of the average Duke student also goes up. Here's another reason Duke should give some of the student section to Iron Dukes.

    How much would somebody pay to be a Cameron Crazie on the craziest day of the year?

    At least one student tried to find out, attempting to sell his spot at the Feb. 13 game against North Carolina for $1,000 on DukeList-a sale that could potentially break the law and violate University honor code. Alex* posted the offer Sunday, and it was up for approximately an hour before he took it down at the request of one of the line monitors, students who police the tenting process and undergraduate admittance to basketball games.

    The hour was long enough, though, for somebody to see the post and contact Alex, though he did not ultimately respond to the inquiry.

    Head line monitors Bradley Baird and Jackson Lindsey, both seniors, wrote an email to the Krzyzewskiville listserv Monday informing the tenters that selling student seats to the game is both illegal and against Duke Student Government and the University honor code. According to North Carolina statutes, "student tickets issued by institutions of higher education in North Carolina for sporting events" may not be sold online, though online resales are allowed in other cases if the venue allows it.

    "I wanted to go on a trip and didn't have enough money," Alex said. "I didn't really expect anybody would want to pay that, and the second option was going to the game, which is a pretty good option."

    Because Alex posted on DukeList, potential inquiries would likely come from within the Duke community. In his post, Alex wrote that he would continue tenting until the final day, after which he and the buyer would switch names on the tent roster.
