    I couldn't agree more!

    If anything like the App and Miami game...it was not part of the season ticket package and cost the like $80 extra per seat. So tell me exactly how that's going to boost season ticket sales?

    Any deal with Kentucky better include a basketball game too.

    I have no doubt that Tom “The Contractor” Kleinlein will come up with an opponent way better than Kentucky.

    The game might have come together too late to get included in the season ticket package. I believe USA managed to get their MSU game in the their deal.

    Kentucky, Wake Forest, Duke, Vandy, Cal, Oregon St....there are a lot of teams (when we get back to our prime) we can compete with and would have a helluva good game. Paint me into the crowd that thinks take a 2 for 1 just to get the ball rolling would be a good thing long term. Didn't WF play at ULM a few years back for their season opener? They aren't doing a 2 for 1 that I'm aware of.

    Plus, a person who would only buy season tickets if there's a P5 team on the home slate isn't going to buy them next year when there's no P5 team. How does that grow season ticket sales?
    Hey, Tyson! Change the culture back!

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    Ya know, garns...I'd take some visiting MAC teams too. You think Bowling Green wouldn't jump at the chance to come to the 'boro and try to get their swagger back? Same for NIU...that'd be a good game to watch.

    One thing TK is dead right about is how financially dumb 2 for 1's are. If our attendance was as bad as GaSt's then yes it would make more sense. We are always at 90%+/- capacity for Sat games so the best we could do probably is bring temp seating or open up all the hills for to get more. That would not in anyway shape or form offset the revenue lost from a home game. It might sell more season tickets if it is a huge name but KY is not going to do that.
