    For $10 I bought three Red Baron pizzas at Cub, and got 2 tickets.

    If you post something for free on Craigslist, there's a good chance that somebody is actually looking for that thing and will jump at the chance to get it for free.

    The chance of that same somebody randomly driving by your house, however, is very low. Conversely, the chance of someone driving by your house and 'stealing' something they don't even need because they feel like they are getting a deal is quite high.
    Wait, are you saying that putting something on the curb with a "$10" sign increases the chance that it will get picked up over a "free" sign? That people are more likely to take it if they think they're stealing it? That's insane.

    No fun to write this but fan apathy must be dramatic for the Gophers to announce $10 tickets going on sale later this week for the home opener with South Dakota State.

    I don’t get paid to write but fan apathy by definition of the word apathy isn’t dramatic

    There is kind of a lot of things working against them for attendance to this game so I think it's smart to try and get as many gopher fans there as possible so the SD state fans don't out number the gopher fans...

    Outside making the students show up for orientation (I assume that is the case), yeah it's a bad time of the year to bring folks in.

    Bingo. I read something years back about this - it had something to do with perceived value with a price tag versus perceived “junk” with a free sign. It wasn’t a desire to steal but rather a desire to get an item that is worth something for “free”.

    Yep, I love it every year even though I know a lot of them are basically forced to be there.

    The bigger problem is with the phrase "fan apathy". If people are apathetic (and, boy, are they ever), they aren't fans. That said, the drop in attendance certainly is dramatic.

    With an hour and change left, you can only buy single tickets, so I'd say it must have gone pretty well.
