    How many more season tickets would Harrison Barnes mean.

    I was just wondering if a lot more season tickets would be sold if Harrison Barnes by some strike of good fortune, becomes a Cyclone. It is a little fair weather, but I would get season tix if he comes. I was just wondering how many others would. I could honestly see Harrison almost single handedly restoring Hilton Magic. Let's just hope it happens.

    I believe it. There would be an excitement level around that team that we haven't had in awhile

    Re: How many more season tickets would Harrison Barnes mean.

    I agree. He'd give an initial bump that winning would have to sustain. He'd give that needed bump though.

    Re: How many more season tickets would Harrison Barnes mean.

    I doubt it would have much of an impact. Most of the people that are following the recruitment of Barnes are probably already season ticket holders. I don't think there'd be much buzz in the general public if he signed. Was there any impact when Fizer signed?

    Majority of the games would be sold out. JP would love that.

    Re: How many more season tickets would Harrison Barnes mean.

    Winning == more ticket sales

    Losing == less ticket sales

    Hope == more ticket sales

    The degree to which HB would contribute to any of those would determine how many more tickets would be sold because of him...

    There was buzz surrounding Fizer.

    Barnes is the 2nd coming of "The Mayor", it would be a immediate impact. Period. The kid is a flat out phenom.

    Re: How many more season tickets would Harrison Barnes mean.

    If he signed word would spread to people who wouldn't otherwise know. I'd tell a few.

    Well, yeah, so would I. And most of the people I know would say, "That's great. Let me know when they are actually winning some games."

    Re: How many more season tickets would Harrison Barnes mean.

    I know for a fact it would mean at least 2 more season tickets sold (my fiance and I). Other than that I couldn't tell you.

    Speaking of Barnes... anyone else going to the Marshalltown/Ames game tonight? I will be there.

    Re: How many more season tickets would Harrison Barnes mean.

    I would probably get tickets for my wife and I, currently don't buy season tickets. Being an Ames product would help get even more than Fizer.

    Re: How many more season tickets would Harrison Barnes mean.

    I live 2 1/2 hours from Ames and I would buy season tickets just to guarantee me seats for the Big 12 games.
