    Time to reduce student ticket sales

    to the lower level only. Empty upper level is a joke, a very bad joke.

    Re: Time to reduce student ticket sales

    I'm guessing the athletic department believes the revenue from selling those seats as student season tickets exceeds what they could generate from sale to the general public.

    Re: Time to reduce student ticket sales



    This again, really? Make it easier for students to resell tickets. We will always have a gap when its hard to resell and students pack to the front (just like we did when students had both balcony sections)

    Re: Time to reduce student ticket sales

    I couldn't see very well on TV, but if both levels weren't chock full today, I'm going to go ahead and agree that the student ticket allotment needs to be reduced.

    Yep. Even if the general public bought every ticket, they would pay less than what students do for those seats.

    Re: Time to reduce student ticket sales

    Upper deck was half full or so. Students were into the game, and the attendance magically improves as the team keeps winning.

    Just keep winning, and people will find something new to whine about. Finally.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Time to reduce student ticket sales

    On a side thought, i guess its a good sign we ***** about a fraction of a section being less than full, when we see arenas night in and night out near empty for conference games.

    Obligatory "the old people didn't stand enough" post in thread complaining about student attendance.

    To be fair, I thought the entire crowd wasn't very energized today. At the start of the game it was almost like a graveyard.

    All those tickets were sold long before the season started.

    The walking tacos are only about half full. We should only sell them to the general public.
