    On the bright side, not including it with season tix means it will count as a road-neutral win.

    Money grab. They should just say it. They are in for a bunch of extra cash because of the added seats available, they could throw a bone to long time supporters of the programs by at least including them in the package. I would be willing to pay the market rate and I think most would as well.

    I know the 96 game was part of the package. We attended and didnt pay any extra.

    Could the "Money Grab" be by the Vikings/Wilfs, not the University?

    That's good news, Clem.

    What will the capacity be for basketball? It seems unlikely they're going to get 30,000 in there regardless of who the opponent is, so you'd think they could spare 8K for the season ticket holders.

    Our athletics department is wildly incompetent. I don't think I am ever going to blame fan apathy/frustration on a coach in any sport so long as these knuckleheads run the show. They seem to actively try to reduce fan interest, and then wonder why they don't sell more tickets.

    That pretty much sums it up.
