Students get in free (Good Thing!); however, I was also surprised by the $766K number.
: What is "Direct Institutional
: Support?" Is that like, contributions
: from corporate sponsors? Or is it money
: from the University allocated to the

: 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.
