    Don't forget to renew your BB Season Tickets

    The deadline for BB Ticket renewals has been moved up and is due this week. It really crept up on me and if not for a reminder post card, I may have missed the boat and lost my seats. I wonder how many others are as negligent as I am. I would use the word procrastinator, but the renewal deadline seemed to come so early this year.

    Re: Don't forget to renew your BB Season Tickets

    I've got a bad feeling season tickets are going to take a hit this year. People aren't near as excited about basketball as they are about football, and football is hurting a bit.

    I agree...I'm gonna guess BBall is down 15-20%. Hope that's not the case, but I'll be surprised if it's on par with last year.

    It's easy to see though why people could justify not doing it this year. I wouldn't be surprised to see something like the Applebees thing for basketball.

    Re: Don't forget to renew your BB Season Tickets

    I know we are downsizing from 5 tickets to two. We had a really hard time giving away extra tickets this year and now my wife really doesn't even want to go to games anymore...

    Re: Don't forget to renew your BB Season Tickets

    It would be a shame to see a decrease. I think this year could be a much more fun team to watch.

    That said, we downgraded a seat, because our 3rd person will be in Cyclone Alley this year.

    Maybe they should pair it with season tix to Ames High games - we could call it the Harrison Barnes - Cyclone Package.

    Re: Don't forget to renew your BB Season Tickets

    I really don't understand why more of the $99 balcony seats don't get sold. We have had them for about 4 years, and we are in row 6. At that price, we don't feel bad about giving tickets away if we don't want to go, because it's impossible to make it to every game.

    I work with a lot of Cyclone fans with little kids who are always more than happy to take unused tickets off my hands

    Re: Don't forget to renew your BB Season Tickets

    It has to do with us having our worst three year winning percentage at home in nearly 20 years. .667 over the last three seasons isn't horrible by any stretch, but it's a dropoff from what we experienced for about a 15 year stretch.

    Re: Don't forget to renew your BB Season Tickets

    Seriously, they should offer I-State BB season ticket holders a "discounted season pass" to attend Ames High games. You would have to wear cardinal and gold, however. Ames High's crowds are small anyway, and we could fill the gym.
    This would certainly send a message to any Ames High students or athletes considering ISU...

    Re: Don't forget to renew your BB Season Tickets

    The 100 dollar tickets are a great deal but driving to Ames in the middle of winter with these gas prices really can make it a hassle.

    I'd be really surprised if season ticket sales dip below 9k. I won't be surprised if there is another drop in people actually attending the early season games. I haven't heard a whole lot more about the early season games... but the home sched isn't exactly loaded with thrilling games.

    Some of those games couldn't really drop in attendance. You can really tell when you're 1 row from the top of the building!
