    Good Deal, will be dumping 2 of my 3 tickets for sure....and maybe even the 3rd. And plan on sending a letter to the AD on why I am dumping 2 of the 3, and I might add they are Donation seats...so maybe he'll read the letter/ then toss it in the trash...my message in the letter will be why I am dumping 2 season tickets....>>>> Red Gendron.

    On the half season ticket packages for Friday or Saturday it says 8 or 9 home games.

    I think it means $13 per game per ticket. That seems like a good deal.

    I had a feeling we would see the Mavericks. The trend has been to play a lower-half NCHC team in that schedule slot, and UNO fits that description.

    Absolutely agree. Maybe attendance and overall revenue (concessions come to mind) will increase as a result.

    I dont think 13$ is the price, $16 if you buy at window, buy online add 2.50 or 3 for fee.

    The $50 buck seats went to $35. Good move, that was a rather stiff price.
    Good to see they are changing things up.

    I mean if you buy season ticket at $250 it works out to about 13 dollars a game. Seems pretty reasonable to me. I imagine the attendance will go up despite the lack of enthusiasm for Gendron.

    Yup, lowering prices is also a risk, what if the same attendance numbers hold. But that would also be another reason to make a coaching change, poor record and more decreasing revenue, pretty sly actually.

    Or, the same revenue and the same results, just with more posteriors in the seats...

    Better attendance might amount to putting lipstick on a pig, or perhaps it'll help recruiting. It's worth a try, IMO.

    Yeah worth a try. Good move by AD, he'll have a play no matter what happens.

    Lowering ticket prices needed to happen years ago, (especially those empty $50.00 seats). I gave up my season tickets 3 years ago and I won't be renewing. Will probably go to a couple of home games.

    BUT...as I have said before, it won't be the "same" revenue. It will be more. Because more people means more concessions sales. If you cut ticket prices in half and get double the people, the actual "ticket" revenue is the same, but the total revenue is MORE, because those people have to eat and drink.

    Except concessions revenue no longer goes to the university as I recall.
