If we are asked to refund a significant amount of donations, there is the potential based on the outcome of our fall seasons that we will face the possibility of falling significantly short of meeting our funding requirements.


I get they're asking but with everything going on, that's kinda a bad look...

I don't understand why Universities think they as somehow immune to economics. If the service isn't provided then you don't get paid for it. That's how life works.

In this iptay is actually a non profit that works WITH Clemson athletics in order to raise money.

So their pespective I think is a bit skewed here.... they exist to collect money, and that's it.

They're not really speaking for the university.

I’d fully expect a refund from Gopher athletics for my season tickets. However, if they offered a program like the Twins, I would be on board and let them keep my money.

I believe the twins offered to roll over your tickets to 2021 and give you 15% extra to spend on other tickets. If you spent $2000 on partial season tickets, you’d get $300 in bonus tickets for the next season. Wouldn’t be a bad way to add fans and keep the coffers full for the Gophers.

Asking as a season ticket holder to other season tickets holder. If there is no season or fans, what will you do. I am planning on taking a full refund and then donating 80% of the premium seating cost to the Gopher Fund. I will take my refund on ticket prices and parking. Just curious.
