    Re: made nearly $90k on Pinstripe

    Breaking even on a smaller bowl game, especially in such a high cost area, is great. Not a lot of schools who go to lower tier bowls are able to make any money off of it with the way bowls set up ticket sales. This is a bigger deal than some posters are thinking.

    Plus it showed again that ISU fans travel well, which can only help us in bowl selections in the future.

    Re: made nearly $90k on Pinstripe

    Interesting tidbit in the story. If the numbers are correct, we paid the Big 12 just over $725 per ticket for the unsold tickets. Seems high to me. For those that went, did you pay that much for a ticket?

    It was mainly due because they couldn't come close to selling their allottment of tickets:

    Report: UConn lost $1.8 million at Fiesta Bowl - Connecticut Post


    I think it is quite a accomplishment that we didn't lose any money when you look at we spent over $600k on food and lodging for roughly 600 people.

    Got mine for $40 outside the stadium since it was a list minute decision. List price was ~$100.

    I think your math is off (or they've already corrected the article) - I'm getting 1,402 unsold tickets at ~$113.75 each.

    Regardless, coming away with a profit after a game like this is very impressive.

    Either they changed the article, or physics majors weren't required math classes back in the day
