[quote]I don't see how the two are comparable at all.[/quote] Bitcoin has a group of adopters, who I think for the most part have honest intentions, convincing people to convert dollars (or goods and services) into digital currency.

I think what gets overlooked is that there aren't enough tickets to satisfy student demand. Why not add 1500 more seats for the student allotment. Then fill those lower bowl seats with season ticket holders in the south endzone. Then make a bigger damn upper deck that will get some people ...
