Deadline is here. A buddy of mine was late last year and they allowed him to pay late to secure his old seats, but he was not allowed to get into the online seat selection process to possibly find better seats.
I am a first time season ticket buyer. I paid my $200. How does it work from here?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Oh, and only 309 more posts!

Typically you have to meet a minimum requirement of NLC points to be eligible for season tickets also, on top of donating your minimum of $200. So, say the cutoff is 15 NLC points. You just got 4 more points by donating your $200 and then points for being an alum (one time), member of the alumni association (one time) NLC member each year, etc.
If you meet the minimum point cutoff, which I have yet to see what that is for this year, you will be able to purchase season tickets. I know it was really low last year and iwll likely be very low again this year so you probably won't have any problem getting season tix so long that you've donated money to the NLC prior to the $200 you just did.

Does anyone know what the point cutoff was last year?
I didn't think there was a cut-off last year. They were pushing that season tickets were still available throughout the season which lead me to believe that they didn't sell out due to 1.) the sanctions 2.) people questioning O'B as a good hire and 3.) the final round of step changes that pissed a lot of ticket holders off.
I could be wrong though.
Could somebody explain to me how to join the NLC and what the benefits are?
I just called the 800 number and she told me that my $200 covers my $100 per seat fee. Then after tomorrow, the order of seat selection will be determined. She said my selection date will be emaied to me.
If there was a point cut-off last year, it was definitely the amount of points you get by making the minimum donation - my friends and I were all first-time NLC members, donated $100 each, and we were all able to get season tickets together. It also sounds like it is going to work the same way this year - I am basing this assumption off of the renewal information I received before donating again this year.
I do believe point totals are taken into account when they decide your seat selection date though.
Thanks for the input. This goes along with what I was told.

Just bought my season tickets for next year! This is the first time I've gotten season tickets as a non-student!
Dominate The State
Probably won't be as much fun as the student section!
Welcome to the other side!
Student section will have plenty of seats available for most games if that's what youre into.. i had all big ten home games for 2009 and sat in the student section field level for all games except Iowa..
I was a first time nlc member last season. I donated approx. two weeks after the feb 1 deadline and I still received all the points I was eligible for and was able to select my seats on the day the corresponded with my point total. This year I donated back in November for the One Team 5 year commitment to get those bonus points!
Don't let people scare you with their talk about minimum levels. If you donate 100 you get a ticket, end of story.

Yeah, the days of waiting lists for tickets and needing point totals in the 50's to secure tickets is long gone. STEP did damage on that, the downturn in the economy, and now the sanctions. If you want season tickets, call the NLC and tell them so. $100 per seat wanted is the donation needed. That gets you endzone seats, about the 10 yard line to the other 10 yard line on the North end. Sidline seats will get you for $400 or $800 per seat. Later you will have to pay up for the tickets .... $10 per game for a pre paid yellow park pass (those cost $40 on game do so BUY them), the cost of the seats (I think it is like $55 per ticket per game?), and then some small processing fee they tack on. You will select your seats online. A window opens when you can log on to select, based on NLC points. The more points you have, the earlier your window opens.Online selection is a breeze. The open seats/not available seats are bright red/bright green on the map of the section. Click to reserve the ones you want, and it locks them in for a few minutes while you proceed. Once you select seats, they are yours forever and forever IF you pay the required $$ by the deadline every year. If you sign up for OneTEam, they promise to not increase the $100 donation needed for the next 5 seasons, as you are promising to pay the $100 for the next 5 seasons. Honestly, though, it is a no lose on the customer part. If you move out of state next year and choose to not pay for the donation, they really can't get your $$.
