    Yeah, doesn't first come first serve allow you to sit with your friends much more than forcing students to sit in sections based on their class? And even if you break it up by class wouldn't you still have to all come in together to sit together?

    Maybe it's just a total aversion to change or something, because I think you're right. At ISU, you DO get to sit with your friends. Not just people you're in the same academic year as.

    You're telling me that a home schedule of Florida Atlantic, McNeese State, Miami, Illinois, Rutgers, Purdue, and Minnesota isn't causing a huge influx of demand?

    Other than Miami is there a single team on that list that any Nebraska fans would even consider buying a single game ticket to?

    I always thought they paid for just the one team, since no one else compares to them Huskers.

    Re: The state of College Football

    Part of it is certainly aversion to change. But the other thing is they know where they are going to sit so they don't have to show up an hour or two before kickoff to stand in line. Sitting in the stadium an hour before kickoff can be boring.


    texas is similar in that where you sit is determined by class rank but I think you also have the option to form a group when you by tickets. In 2009 my brother paid $65 for season tickets at Texas and I paid $125 (+$25 for arbitrary fees) for my tickets for ISU.

    Re: The state of College Football

    Only skimmed the article, but if the main point is "what makes college football special is the traditions" and that too much advertising, marketing, promotion, commercial tie-ins risk ruining those traditions.... then I'd agree.

    For me, what makes cfb special is the traditions. The campus. The old stadiums. The marching band. Tailgating with family and friends. Knowing the words to "Don't Know the Words". The competitive differentiator is nostalgia.

    I have little interest in going to an NFL game, and zero interest in arena football. But I have season tix to Cyclone football.

    Re: The state of College Football

    I'm glad they use the term antidote to describe CFB vs pro football. My favorite game (and indeed one of my favorite things) is college football. I love everything about it; tailgating, personal emotional investment, college aged girls, etc. I also loved the bowls. I loved the discussions about the national championship when it was in dispute.

    Now all the dip****s who were so desperate for a playoff are getting their way. We are headed for NFL lite and just like the Super Bowl, the seats at the national championship are going to be reserved for corporate entities. Some rich ***holes with no affiliation to the schools will become the majority of the occupants of those seats.

    Also, contraction will be part of this. Get ready for a 32 team CFB league.

    CFB was my antidote. It gets diluted every year...

    Glad I'm not the only one who thinks this. To me it's only a matter of when the bubble pops.

    They can also irritate a person to the point of making a point to not buying the product. There is so much of this saying something so many times that people take it as fact and say studies showed that. Why not make multiple adds rather than showing the same one 13 times. Yes I have heard the repetition to enforce memory but show me a study on negative effects of irritating adds or too much repetition.

    Like I said before, marketing folks are not stupid. Every detail of these national ad campaigns is managed and measured. I'm sure they've got a metric that says something like "watching an ad 5 times makes people likely to buy, but at 6 times, it starts to lose its effectiveness as people get annoyed." It's all calculated to get the maximum bang for the buck. The evidence is right there for us to see. If the current advertising model wasn't effective, we wouldn't see a commercial block every seven minutes on network TV.

    I imagine with the ADD generation they'd rather pay (or have their parents pay), get to show up at the last minute, and get the good seats.

    You see it at DisneyWorld, TSA Pre-check, etc.

    A generation wants things to be convenient for them? That sounds like something no one's ever seen before.

    My gosh. No wonder they ran from the Big 12. They wont even have to travel to away games if the goal is any bowl game. Get drubbed by Miami, win the others at home, and they're bowl bound.

    Re: The state of College Football

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that if Nebby stays in the Big 12, their ticket waiting list is probably 5 times as long as it is now.


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!
