Nebraska sold out its Spring Game, but not every fan is happy with how it happened.

Nebraska announced Wednesday afternoon that in Scott Frost's first year in Lincoln, the program had sold out tickets for its Spring Game. Some fans are excited - others are upset with the school.

Nebraska reportedly allows season ticket holders to buy up to 20 tickets for the annual intra-squad contest. The game sold out in less than two days - but not all fans who wanted tickets were able to land them.

As a result, fans still in need are being forced to go to StubHub, where prices for the tickets are skyrocketing.

One fan, who goes by Tiffany Henrichs, responded to Nebraska on Twitter with a rant about the process. Some chimed in to agree with her on social media. Others criticized her.

"Screw you University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Nebraska Huskers and Nebraska Football!! This would have been our 10th year taking our kids to the spring game and I can't get tickets because you worship the ground the season ticket holders walk on and allow them early access at 20 tickets per household and guess what?

THOUSANDS of tickets end up price gouged on stub hub for an insane price and that isn't even the free youth tickets! Some of us can't afford season tickets and some of us can't afford to pay stub hub, gouged prices for our CHILDREN to attend a SCRIMMAGE! The Spring game is the one opportunity for countless families to take their children to experience the greatness of Husker Nation and you've taken that away from a whole lot of fans and future fans. Screw you, Nebraska, screw you."

It's unclear how many fans just bought their full allotment of 20.

Regardless, it seems that Nebraska fans are very interested in getting their first look at Scott Frost's coaching abilities. We'll see if the school responds to fans who are upset about the Spring Game ticket process.
