Here from a MN season ticket holder for 18 years. I gave them up 3 years ago when the U added a forced donation to the tickets that doubled my commitment. now I go to 1-2 games per year and either get free tickets or very reduced
If I remember I was paying about 1300 for 4 seats on the sideline 1st level with seat backs about the 5 yd line (clearly not the greatest seats in the house but not bad either)
jumping them to 2600 put me out of the game and I really didn't want to move to another spot after spending money on those lean years (Mason, Brewster, etc.) to work my way to where I had gotten to.
Students are not coming to our games and like Badge stated once there they leave early too. The last two years the U has given 1 year scholarships(drawn at the games) to student fans that signed in at the beginning of the game and stay until into the 4th quarter. must be present to win,a great deal and that kept about half the student crowd longer
