I'm thinking about cutting all the spending back to essentials only.  Hookers, blow, and whiskey...

And if I had to make a further cutback, it would be on whiskey or blow......

Season tickets are $250 for the upper decks.

Nope, just go the website and get what you wish. Now, the middle sections have a required seat amount for so many rows, but the vast majority don't.

Mine were there for years. 48 yard line ,first couple of rows. You may not believe it but they were nearly as good as any in the house.

Actually some of the best seats to watch the plays develop, I've sat in the front row of Pig Heaven. If the amenities were a little better, concessions, walkway, etc., I wouldn't care to sit there every game.

And to the owner of those seats there is value to that experience, don't hate on something you cant/don't want to do. If you're putting a simple momentary value on the price of a ticket, stay home and watch it. Hopefully it's on a free channel, because if it's a pay channel, well........

No, I will just continue to buy tickets outside the stadium at a bargain price and enjoy the game much more than I would have in needlessly spending thousands more just to have season tickets, which I do not need.

just be careful doing that. I had a buddy of mine one year spend 150$ on 50 yard line seats for the Alabama game. he got up to the gate and his tickets would not scan, the ticket lady told him that someone had made fake tickets and that he was out of luck. makes me sick that people actually will do this.

I love the Razorbacks but I don't love the Razorbacks enough for me and my family to go broke.

A LOT of people have been buying season tickets for years all across the country for a lot of teams or other activities and haven't gone broke. I know people that spend as much in a year going out to movies as I do on season tickets and they aren't broke. IF disposable, discretionary income is that tight for someone then maybe that someone should not do anything. One doesn't have to be rich to buy season tickets. I'm not. That being said they can't be poor either.

How many would still buy season tickets or go to games at all if you could only go to the games?

TBH I think its inevitable that in 10 years every cfb stadium in America will be half full. Lets face it guys... every new generation cares less and less about sports. It isn't like in the 80's when we had nothing to do but play tag ,Atari (for the rich kids), hunt, or do chores. Todays kids have stimulation overload. They don't need or want sports more and more.


I always like to think about the future because I know my days are limited. I like to imagine the way things will be. In 20 years I think you will see schools actually tear down our huge stadiums for space for buildings... as universities are usually surrounded by city and property space is at a maximum. Maybe I'm dreaming.

There were to many times I needed 5 or 6 together or 3 on one row n 3 right behind them.

I don't tailgate. Wouldn't impact my attendance at all.

me. I get my joy by going to the games. being in the stadium, seeing the players take the field. the loud roar. atmosphere. a lot of the tailgaters stay outside the stadium anyways and never come in, or if they do they are to drunk to watch the game.

I meant to type that reply to hogsanity when he asked who would still go to the games. I didn't mean to quote you my bad.

There is just something about being there. It's an undefinable concept.

Its a phenomenon. You know its real but you can't take a picture of it or show it to someone. Scientist/doctor would say something clinical like some portion of one of the lobes in your brain sent the signal for adrenaline which caused the goosebumps and hair to rise on your neck or to cry. They're full of crap.
