Also, I'm in favor of selling tickets at a price low enough to get people out to the games, but if we averaged about 21,000 in 2008 at football games, over six games, that's about 126,000 tickets sold. Ticket revenues of just $766,110 works out to just over $6 per ticket. This is waaaay too low. Where is the disconnect here? Too many promos? Too many freebees? I think we can do better than $6 per ticket. Either that, or I want to buy me some $6 tickets.
As for those football road game guarantees, we need to find a way to increase support so we can live without them. We get invited because we're figured to lose. If we start winning, they'll stop inviting us. So it pays to lose. This is an anachronism we do not need in our football program.
