    Football Ticket Sales - DMR

    Now it is full scale headline news.

    See the DMR link below.

    Bottom line, the economy hurts, but we may be at a point at which prices have also reached their maximum as far as the demand curve goes for now.

    Pollard referenced this in his interview on M&M earlier this week. I hope ISU gets to 33,000.

    I didn't realize that we changed the policy on the sales of the Nebraska game tickets.

    This does not make me happy.

    In our business, we react to the marketplace. No different for Iowa State or any other "business." Changing it is better than going with a policy that isn't working.

    ISU and UofI officials did a masterful job of leading the reporter to believe the soft ticket sales have been driven by the economy vs. the product on the field.

    Re: Football Ticket Sales - DMR

    They have to change direction, that is accepted. however, it is fair to understand that there are donors/fans who paid a price increase (6 games for same price), increased donation for seating, or did not get any seating improvemetn (due to high demand) who might be rumbling a bit.

    That's fine and dandy and all.....I just think that the Athletic Department blinked too soon on the Nebraska ticket plan. The Fuskers would have eventually ponied up at the rates that we wanted, no matter how crappy their team will be this season.

    You may be right, but don't forget, they have 8 home games. A friend of mine in Nebraska said he's not going to all of them, let alone a road trip to watch the Huskers get beat by Iowa State. (He didn't actually say they would get beat, that's me talking)

    Refund? LOL.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    I plan on buying my tickets this week, Settle down. Friends of mine don't want to purchase them cause Iowa is not on the schedule and they just want to tailgate, which is all good. But, my first fall semester at ISU will be spent in the student section!
