    We should be pretty sure it cannot be over $350, not sure how they can raise prices on a lesser scheduled when donations also have to be jacked up next year.

    There is no way I will pay a cent over $350. I'm all about supporting the football team but one less game, no Iowa, no OU, no Texas, and a 3 win previous season doesn't justify a price increase. If anything I would hope to see a reduction.

    I would think it would fall to about $310, one less game at $40 per.

    I thought Pollard already stated that prices would stay the same for the tickets but donation levels would go up. So pick your poison there. Either way there will be an increase in overall price of tickets.

    Let the donation go up. It will TAKE LOTS OF DOLLRS TO CATCH UP TO NEBRASKA'S RECORD.

    If tickets stay at $350 next year, they will have gone up in price. I don't think Pollard can justify another 15% increase right after the big increase last year. I'm guessing they will go down to around $300.

    whatever it turns out to be, i will put the blinders on for 5 minutes, sign a check for whatever the hell 2 tickets cost, and send it in the mail. it will sting the wallet for a day or 2, but by the time the season rolls back around, i will have forgotten about the money and look forward to watching my clones again.

    I think it will be $325 to $340, the price per game will go up.

    We need the money, and it will go up per game this year and in total next year when we go back to 7 home games.

    We are still less than most Big 12 teams.

    Small, gradual increases are better than a big increase every third year. Prices won't fall, but shouldn't increase much.

    I'll like that fact to be proven to me. I don't have a clue what other schools pay. I do know that we payed more than Iowa this year.

    Not including donations:

    iowa tickets were $282 for 6 games. But, they also had to pay a $50 "seat fee". So, the real cost was $332. For an average of about $55 a game.

    Iowa State tickets were $350 for 7 games. For an average of $50 a game.

    We didn't pay more than iowa... I think you could see Jamie start a "seat license" fee for 2008. Keep the per game average at $50, and then add a $50 fee.

    Come on folks, if the season tickets cost the same which would be about a $40 increase since there is one less game, that equals out to about 1-2 dinners out the entire year.

    Yeah the donations are increasing but that is the market of college athletics. Either you are on board or not on board. Make some minor sacrifices in other areas and renew your tickets.

    That says a lot right there. KU ticket holders are really getting their monies worth this year.

    I really hope the price per game doesn't go up this year again. We can't just keep jacking up the price each year because very soon, people are going to hit their breaking point unless we start winning a lot more.

    Maybe you consider it minor but this year I've probably spent over $1,500 (for 2 people plus donations) to watch ISU football. I wouldn't consider that a "minor sacrifice". It's not always about "being on board". For some of us it's about whether the money is well spent or not.

    So

    ISU $50/game
    NU $52/game
    MO $44/game
    CO $33/game
    KSU $55/game
    BU $40/game
    TU $59/game
    OSU $59/game
    TT $48/game


    I don't think $50/game was bad this year considering we had Texas, Iowa, OU all at home. Also keep in mind that I'm sure a few of these teams sell out their season tickets.

    I was about to post the same exact thing. After what I saw this year, I plan on increasing my donation level for next year.
