    ISU Mention in Oregonian

    I have seen many posts on people's thoughts regarding higher ticket prices and making the Iowa game a more pricey ticket. This morning's Oregonian has three related articles that show this is a national trend ("'To pay the bills,' programs across the nation turn to ticket packages that increase the cost of attending a game"), ISU is listed as an example of a cheap 2008 ticket, and other "big" games like ISU vs Iowa will continue to be sold at a premium price.

    They're talking about a single game, non-conference ticket. Not the season ticket packages or single game conference tickets. Our season tickets are getting up there, especially when you consider the weaker home schedule we have this season.

    Re: ISU Mention in Oregonian

    Uhh, please point me to where you can get a 20 dollar single game ticket. Maybe a little research could have helped the author of that article.

    Edit: My bad, they are counting hillsides. If you want an actual seat it's 40 dollars minimum.

    And yes, season tickets are expensive especially when you consider the number of games involved.

    These data (ASU, UCLA, UA) kind of supports the thinking that AZ is like LA in terms of sports apathy. I would guess USC is an outlier since they are so good.

    AZ teams have also been terrible, or disappointing in the case of ASU.
