This year LSU started offering an option for tickets to be scanned in from their iPhone instead of a paper ticket. As a result, LSU had to buy a whole new fleet of scanners to make this work. Normally, there are 16-20 scanners for the student gates. Only about half of them got delivered in time, so we only had 8 scanners working for the game.
that's a pretty good idea. just sounds like kinks needed to be worked out.
It takes just as long to scan your phone as it does a piece of paper. Now add in the extra time of people fumbling with their phone.
