    but your donation applies to basketball too.

    And gymnastics, and softball. I don't buy tickets for those sports either.

    Remember that your Cyclone Club donation value is not limited to the current year. As in, points per consecutive year of purchasing tickets and various giving levels. It doesn't matter really which sports you do or don't buy season tickets for, the Cyclone Club "donation" isn't tied to one sport.

    And if people demand refunds for this year, then I better move ahead of them in line.

    Do you know where to find donation "rank"?
    I looked this morning and couldn't find it anywhere.

    I was thinking this exact thing, to see if I moved up if people were asking for refunds.

    I don't disagree with any of that, and as I said, I think most people would leave most or all of their donations in tact even if they had the option for a refund. I'm certainly not trying to talk anyone out of donating.

    But in an environment with a lot of job loss and furlough, there will be a not-insignificant number of people for whom college athletics becomes the lowest priority in their budget. If Pollard tried to play hardball with those folks, it would be a disastrous move. (And to be clear, I would be stunned if he actually did that.)

    Hey, I agree with you! Let's be friends again. ;) I do think you're correct, which could make the reindexing plan very interesting over the coming months.

    Hearing Pollard explain that if you can’t for whatever reason purchase your season tickets this year, you’ll be able to keep your seats for 2021. Source- Tailgate Tour

    it helped me make a decision

    Going to be a tough decision, since not sure how the economy is going to play out!

    Pollard made a strong, yet subtle, pitch for renewing season tickets. Essentially, he said, if we can only allow 50% capacity, it will be easy to know which 50%, namely, the season ticket holders. I think it will be 100% or much less than 50%, but he masterfully turned the common 50% capacity rule into a sales pitch. Nicely played.

    How did you proceed? I'd like to keep my seats but not risk all that money if only 50% is allowed.

    Bought mine a couple weeks ago. I decided then I thought there would be a season.

    I contacted the cyclone club. They will be extending the deadline to purchase into June and will allow people to not purchase tickets this fall but still hold onto their seats for next fall. They said more details will be announced next week.

    I renewed back in March right before everything hit the fan. There is always the refund option, too, if things get messy.

    I have heard no one really talk about this, but what about tailgating? Could that be discouraged or even banned? I enjoy tailgating, but I go to games for the games. I know some of our fans are more into the tailgating experience than the game experience.

    So, I assume there are plans out there for parking, tents, and so on. Plan for the worst and hope for the best, I guess.
