    Sounds about par for the course.

    Price wouldn't matter much if, frankly, we were winning more and scoring a few goals (at least more than 1.11/game)...Arizona State now ranked #18 in country and well deserved...

    $17 for Cornell, according to the website. Fac/staff/students get in free to all games (1 ticket per student, up to 3 for fac/staff), & they still don't go.

    My point is that price canít (shouldnít) be a factor in attendance now. Whether the home team is 2-6-1 or 9-0, scoring one goal a game or ten goals a game, $12 is very inexpensive for an NCAA d-1 menís college ice hockey game. Period.

    Re: Colgate 2018-19

    The point I'm trying to make is that charging $12 is not in line with the demographics of the Hamilton and surrounding area. Sure, you can charge $23 or $500 in Minneapolis or Omaha, but that won't fly in central NY. Our fan base is made up of locals, alums, faculty, parents, maybe a few students, etc. We don't pull in people from a metropolitan area, nor do we have a school of 15,000 students. Utica and Syracuse have AHL teams and have their own local fan base. They are unlikely to travel to Hamilton (unless we are ranked in the top 5 and doing really well). You have to fit the tix price to the surrounding area of fans, and IMHO I think $12 is too much for '65 Arena, especially with a middling team. Lower it to $8-10 and maybe.....just maybe....we would pull in more bodies.

    Re: Colgate 2018-19

    Trust me, when I drive from Owego to Hamilton and back on Highway 26, I realize that I am not in Omaha anymore. But, youíre helping prove my point... the problem isnít Price, itís (lack of) Population in the immediate area. I donít think youíd get (m)any more people at five dollars a head; youíd just bring in less revenue. If it were me, I think I would try more Promotion in Syracuse and Utica. When I drive to Ithaca from Owego, I see a Cornell Hockey billboard every season in another rural area. I donít remember the last time I saw a Colgate Hockey billboard (menís or womenís). Well, I am sure weíll go to our deathbeds disagreeing on this subject, about which we are both passionate. Go ĎGate.

    Re: Colgate 2018-19

    Wow. The Colgate Raiders had a great first period tonight.
    Princeton 12, Colgate 8, SOG after one.
    Princeton 0, Colgate 0, score after one.
    Mitch Benson played very well.
    And the whole team played with a ton of confidence.
    Whatever team leadership worked on this week, well, it worked.

    And even then, Crunch tickets are around $20 each, last I checked. They might be a couple bucks more.

    The Starr prices were certainly reasonable. And aside from the anomaly of the Friday playoff game, I haven't seen much of a difference in attendance. So I'm inclined to agree with IBT. It'd be nice if you could get syracuse.com to write about the team every once in a while. I know it's a tough sell vs. SU, and although their basketball tickets aren't that much in comparison, they have heavy promotion and the backing of the city.

    Not only we couldn't hear the audio last week, tonight the video isn't coming in, I've just about had it.
    It all starts with the goaltending.

    Re: Colgate 2018-19

    great effort tonight by the whole team all over the ice...Benson very solid, again...need Cockerell and/or Snodgrass back fairly soon...passing needs to get better, both on passing and receiving end, but a very good win...DV does know how to coach against his pupil...hoping Princeton takes down Cornell tomorrow night...

    Re: Colgate 2018-19

    Very good, gritty win tonite; team looks faster than a few games ago. Beauty of a goal by Ken Citron. Gotta bring this intensity again tomorrow nite.

    I'm with ya Shabby. ESPN+ takes so long to get to the game; I have to jump thru hoops to get past all their messages and miss most of the first few minutes of the game. Is anyone else having these problems?

    Re: Colgate 2018-19

    Iím speechless. I have no idea what went on behind closed doors this past week, but tonightís team looked totally different (than pre-OSU) and played three solid periods of hockey. Goal called off? Doesnít matter. We had the confidence to get it back.
    Colgate 2, Princeton 1, was the final score.
    Princeton 34, Colgate 27, final SOG.
    It really was a great advertisement for college hockey, too.
    Congrats Colgate Raiders staff and players. We needed that W. And totally deserved it.

    That was one hell of a hockey game! I agree with everything Iowa said. The boys played hard every minute of the game! Congrats to Cosgrove and Citron for their first goals of the season and congrats to everyone for a great game! GO 'GATE!!!!

    Re: Colgate 2018-19

    Nice to see them finally get a win, and well deserved after this and a gutsy effort against Ohio State last weekend. I felt good about the possibility of a split this weekend, so naturally picked us to be Qpac instead. Big win for the Cats at Lynah, do they look past us a bit?

    Also, re: ESPN+, I have had no issues. There's a small thing with sound, that is Radio's broadcast, not coming through, but I think that's a local production problem (rather than an ESPN issue). I recall the same issue in past seasons when the games were on Stadium or direct from the school. Otherwise, video comes up and is good. Is it maybe a speed/connection issue for some folks?

    Re: Colgate 2018-19

    Once the video came on I had no problems with the sound. It was getting past the "Free Week of ESPN+" ads that bothered me. There is no place to log in and just be taken straight to the game!! I mean is it so difficult for them to just let you log in with your password and take you to the game??!? :-/

    Gate Radio's broadcast came in loud and clear with no glitches the entire game.
