Considering we have Iowa, Texas, and OU at home this year, I would expect tickets to go down or stay the same but who knows. Iowa has a crappy home schedule this year and their tickets are les than ours.
As far as complaining about people who complain about ticket prices.....I never have a problem with people complaining about ticket prices. You have to figure the average couple is going to spend at least $1,500 a year to go to see the cyclones. It may not be a big commitment for you but it is for a lot of other people.
Fans have a right to expect a return on their dollar. Some have unreasonable expectations but others have been paying this amount for a long time. If you paid for a Honda Civic and got a Doge Neon in return you wouldn't be happy. For some people the experience is enough to justify the price. For others it's all about the w/l's.
As long as they keep buying tickets they can complain all they like.
I don't tend to take pleasure or find humor in someone's physical bloopers, but when UNLVs coach tripped while running out of the Jacobsen Building last fall (to seek out the ISU AD and resume the game) I about fell off my rocker... props to the camera man for catching it all on film and maintaining his/her balance!
Season ticket prices should go down next year with only 6 games.
My parents have Iowa season tickets and they paid less this year than last year (6 vs. 7 games).
Absolutely no way tickets can go UP next year...unless they want the AVERAGE ticket price per game for a season ticket to be over $60.
Always good for a laugh!

In a letter to football season ticket holders dated September 5, 2006, Jamie Pollard said, in pertinent part (paragraph 4), the following: "We plan to introduce new donor seating requirements for the stadium in the spring of 2007 with full implementation in the fall of 2008. By providing the necessary information more than a year in advance, season ticket holders will have adequate time to decide if they want to maintain their current seating locations or move to another section."
The new donor seating requirements for football and mens basketball have been published. In some cases, donors will have to double their contribution to the NCC to maintain their current seating. Redesignation of seating according to the newly established donor levels begins in 2008.
A lot of people will lose their seats unless they contribute more. For many, a lot more. I suspect there will be considerable angst among long time season ticket holders when the hour arrives for their redesignation to another section, that is: poorer seats. Pride and anger may (will) become involved and season ticket sales could well suffer. Perhaps significantly, if we have a mediocre or a poor season this year.
Do you think we could get a group discount for travel and hotel if we got a large organized group together to do the Vegas thing?
