Football ticket value down
By PAUL HELGREN
If you are thinking of turning your
Miami tickets into quick cash, think
again -- you may be too late.
Prices for the ducats - especially in
the student-dominated end zone sec-
tions - have dropped in the past few
days. Earlier in the week, midfield
seats were going for $40 a crack and end
zone $25. Yesterday the scalping crew
in front of the Michigan Union was let-
ting good seats go for $25-30, and end
zone seats for about $15.
THE REASON FOR the decline in
price is simple -- supply is high and
demand is low. Despite the top-ranking
of Michigan's first opponent, Miami, in-

tations of Ann Arbor's street en-
"It's not like Michigan State or Ohio
State," said one scalper, who works
under the name of Aaron. "It's been
"I've got all the tickets I need," said
another, who declined to give his name.
"I ain't buying no more."
Reselling tickets at a price higher
than face value is illegal but the law is
rarely enforced. Last year, Ann Arbor
police arrested a man for scalping but
the charges were later dropped. "No, I
don't worry about that (getting
arrested) too much," said one scalper,
who nonetheless asked that his name be
withheld from print.
FOR THE MOST PART, the scalpers
make their money by buying season
booklets from students and then selling
individual tickets to non-students.
Students pay half the face value of $91
for season tickets and often resell them
for a healthy profit. Last week a season
ticket in the senior section, between the
15 and 35 yard lines, went for $125.
Yesterday the same set of tickets was
going for $100.
Many of the scalpers agreed that
prices might shoot up again on Satur-
day when an influx of ticketless football
fans hits the city.
"Except," said one hawker rather
glumly, "if it rains. Then I'm stuck."

NEW YORK (AP) - Despite a flurry of
adverse line calls and a warning from the
umpire, top seeded John McEnroe
corralled his anger and collared a spot in
the U.S. Open Tennis Championshi
semifinals with a 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 victory ov
Gene Mayer last night.
MrEnroe, seeking his fourth title in
America's premier tennis event, next will
meet Jimmy Connors, who has won here
on the hardcourts at the National Tennis
Center the last two years.
CONN4ORS ADVANCED EARLIER in
the day by eliminating Great Britain's John
Lloyd 7-5, 6-2, 6-0.
In the women's semifinals, which are
scheduled to be played today, No. 1is
Martina Navratilova will face No. 13 We -
dy Turnbull of Australia, while No. 2 Chris
Evert Lloyd takes on 16-year-old Carlin
Bassett of Canada, the No.14 seed.
The fiery McEnroe, visibily holding hi
famed temper in check, closed out his bat
tie with the unseeded Mayer in typical
McEnroe flair, firing a pair of aces on the
last two points of the match.
Then, as he walked across the court
leaving the scene of hisrlatest success
McEnroe stopped and raised his ha
high, like a matador, turning complet
around in a salute to the huge crowd
Louis Armstrong Stadium.
