TAKING INVENTORY: In Charleston, Whitney Burdette noted WVU posted an RFP Tuesday in the search for a "ticket sales company to sell excess inventory." That company would "have control of unsold tickets for games and directly contact potential buyers, such as individuals or groups, to make sales." This approach is "more commonly found among professional sports organizations, and few companies specialize in excess ticket sales at the college level." Two such companies, IMG Learfield Ticket Solutions and The Aspire Group, "each count more than 20 collegiate athletic programs among their clients" (CHARLESTON DAILY MAIL, 3/20).
