My point is I could have waited 2 hours, be towards the end of the line and then NOT gotten in. There is a risk in waiting in the line. If the student tickets were by lottery as many schools do, then there is not the potential wasted time in line only to be turned away. If I have an exam or paper due then I might chose to not risk the line wait.
The technology exists and the process exists to avoid the wasted time in line.
If not for lost studying time, then sub lost drinking time, or lost time at the fitness center, or lost anything time, but not much worse feeling than standing in line in the cold only to get turned away. Increases the likelihood that those turned away will not return anytime soon.
Ramster, I think you're around my age. Tell me if I remember this correctly. When I was in school (74-78), student tickets were given out the mornings of games, very early if I do remember correctly. If you wanted to go to a game badly, you'd go stand in line then. But at least you knew you had a ticket way before the game started. In 4 years, I never missed a game. Am I right or did I dream this?
I think you are right. Of course that was for the much smaller Keaney. But I think you are right and so You knew well ahead of time if you were in or out. There has to be a better system than what we have for students - and I know of schools that do the lottery. Do t even need to leave your dorm room. Hats why I’d like Roady Jay to explore this with Marketing - maybe should be ticket sales but you don’t want to piss off or turn off the students who don’t show up very well as it is. How do we build more student interest and increase student attendance? My guess is Marketing is more concerned with revenue tickets, but people in the stands draws people in the stands in future games.
