Coach K's last ride. Duke-North Carolina for the first time ever in the NCAA Tournament with an appearance in the national title game on the line. Two other blue bloods battling it out on the other side of the bracket. Surely there's no other college sporting event this weekend that could remotely rival the price it's going to cost you to get into the Superdome on Saturday and Monday night.
Well, with the exception of No. 1 Tennessee at No. 9 Vanderbilt on the baseball diamond, that is. If you want to be at Hawkins Field for one of the biggest series in college baseball this year, it's not going to be cheap. Just one ticket to each of the three games in Nashville on the secondary market will currently run you about $575, or $125 more than the get-in price for all three Final Four games.
Yes, the supply is obviously radically different. I do not care. The fact that a college baseball series is drawing this kind of interest and demand — not to even mention one taking place on Final Four weekend — is awesome.
Give Tennessee fans a reason to show up and I promise you, they will. The Vols' first series in program history as the consensus No. 1 team in the country taking place against Vandy in Nashville will certainly draw a lot of orange into the building, even at these prices.
So if you're in the South looking for something to do this weekend and want to save some money, maybe opt for the Final Four instead of Tennessee-Vandy,
