reminds me of the old story that seems to travel

"I put 4 tickets to [insert shitty team's name here] game on my car windshild when I went to the grocery. When I came out, there were 8."

Los Angeles Times story from Sept. 5 on UCLA attendence issues

quote:

UCLA can’t be blamed for the starting times because it has no control over the issue; donation requirements are another matter. The athletic department sharply increased mandatory donation requirements attached to some season ticket packages in 2016 in an effort to offset the rising costs of the school’s 25 sports teams.

Some longtime season ticket holders revolted. Steve Prince, Kevin’s father, gave up the season tickets he had held in the family since his freshman year at UCLA in 1963.

Before the increase, he had split one $1,500 yearly donation for the four season tickets he shared with a friend for seats at the 50-yard line. Prince said that amount ballooned to a $1,600 yearly donation per ticket in 2016, causing the average donation per seat per game to go from $62.50 to $266.67 over a typical six-game home schedule.

“It just wasn’t worth it,” said Prince, who now mostly watches games on television from his home in Fallbrook.

A UCLA athletic department representative said the increase came only after a policy review that involved surveys of season-ticket holders in addition to interviews with every other Pac-12 Conference school, a focus group and a national review of Power Five institutions.

“The change was made with an eye toward the future, and the necessity of generating new, sustainable revenue,” the representative said. “The department understood and anticipated a certain amount of attrition, as tends to happen with any major program change.”

a HUGE jump in the required donation right as the team is tumbling talent-wise is just bad timing

A variant on that-

There’s a contest going on where the first prize is a trip to Cleveland.

Second prize is two trips to Cleveland.

Preferably you would sell all of the available season tickets and have individuals on a waiting list. If not, there is no incentive to agree to such a jump in required donations.

Someone can be an innovator for a while but eventually get left behind.

Look at Spurrier at Florida as opposed to South Carolina. His overall talent may have been better at Florida but he was still pulling great talent at USCe and yet he could never really put it together there.

That's a way to bring in all the Oklahoma fans that live in L.A.

This is going to be an absolute slaughter. Jalen Hurts scoring 5 touchdowns minimum

When they hired Chip I was worried about LSU playing them in 2021-22, now I’m wondering if he’ll still be the coach then.

But he’s not running the offense he ran at Oregon. He’s running something totally different now and that’s why he sucks. This is not what UCLA hired it looks like he has an axe to grind with the NFL so he’s trying to show them he’s more than what he was at Oregon. The problem is what he did at Oregon works and this doesn’t.
