to the lower level only. Empty upper level is a joke, a very bad joke.
lower level even had 100 plus empties
We'll see this thread 3 more times this year.
I'm guessing the athletic department believes the revenue from selling those seats as student season tickets exceeds what they could generate from sale to the general public.
This again, really? Make it easier for students to resell tickets. We will always have a gap when its hard to resell and students pack to the front (just like we did when students had both balcony sections)
I couldn't see very well on TV, but if both levels weren't chock full today, I'm going to go ahead and agree that the student ticket allotment needs to be reduced.
Yep. Even if the general public bought every ticket, they would pay less than what students do for those seats.
Upper deck was half full or so. Students were into the game, and the attendance magically improves as the team keeps winning.
Just keep winning, and people will find something new to whine about. Finally.
On a side thought, i guess its a good sign we ***** about a fraction of a section being less than full, when we see arenas night in and night out near empty for conference games.
Obligatory "the old people didn't stand enough" post in thread complaining about student attendance.
To be fair, I thought the entire crowd wasn't very energized today. At the start of the game it was almost like a graveyard.
I agree if they cant sell out the upper half cut it down and sell the seats to the public
How are the nachos, walking tacos, brats, and clone cones this year??? :skeptical:
All those tickets were sold long before the season started.
The walking tacos are only about half full. We should only sell them to the general public.:jimlad:
Yep. If anything, the answer wouldnt be to reduce sales, but to add another hundred or so and oversell a bit.
The easiest thing to do would be getting rid of the combined student football/basketball tickets and make it so you have to buy them individually.
they need to sell GA tickets on the day of the game in the student sections. There are always going to be no-shows and you know you can over sell those sections. Ok St used to do this, when people actually came to games.
Yeah, that would probably do a lot.. but again, the AD probably thinks they make more money doing it this way, when they know they will for sure sell it out this way, vs selling it later, when they may have a harder time.
Over sell the student section by a few hundred. On big games, have a lottery. Lazy students won't get a ticket to the game. That would only need to be for a couple games each season. Every other game and over selling wouldn't be an issue.
