  1. All, Does anyone know if USF plans to address the issue of we paid for 7 games and now are only getting 6? EDIT : Never mind, I found out USF will be emailing info out about that. Thx jonpfl
  2. USF men's hoops roster evolving

    All, My wife and I were contemplating not getting tickets this year (have had season tickets for 4 straight seasons now) but am getting excited by the new blood being infused into the program. Thx jonpfl
  3. All Two seats, row L section 235. $110 per. IM if interested. Or you can email me : jonpfl01 at gmail d0t c0m Thx jonpfl
  4. After watching them lose on Friday, I have no hopes for bball this year. Thx jonpfl
  5. Troy Baxter signs with USF!!!

    Isn't this the same school that Troy Holston is from? Maybe USF can build a wall around this school.
  6. Tonight Basketball Question

    I was told yes, you will receive a ticket when showing up early. Thx jonpfl
  7. All, I moved our MBB tickets to the club section this year, curious what we can expect for concessions? I know the regular section has HORRIBLE food and was hoping it was better in club. Thx jonpfl
  8. Football Tix Renewal?

    I have no problem with the new system but I do have a problem with them dropping a > 50% increase on fans who have purchased multiple tickets (in my case 8) since day 1 for football. I have not decided if I will renew or not and I KNOW USF will not have people in line waiting to scoop up my tickets (which equates to $0 and 8 empty seats). I know the last few years my section has been near empty so don't talk about market value to me!! There were many times I tried to sell my tickets outside the stadium and was offered $5 per. I would rather not have someone in front of me. I also tried to give tickets away the week before the game and no one cared to go. I would feel MUCH better about an increase IF the product on the field has improved (which I feel it has not). The last thing I remember is a shutout to our biggest rival!! Thx jonpfl

    Speaking to a ticket rep. He mentioned that most people would probably see a decrease. The ones seeing an increase wold be those with a lot of seats (8 seats) or those who were very old time ticket holders who have been grandfathered in to a high level doner seat It's a no win. You complain that grandfathered people being pushed out represents USF not caring. But in the past even some posters here have complained that its not fair that people are grandfathered in. Why should people pay far less (some cases thousands) just because, for example, they are older and were able to but tickets when the potential buyer was a kid at the time. It is something called loyalty!! It reminds me of the Bucs back in the day and getting greedy and look at their fanbase. If new fans feel slighted, lower the donation but don't screw your loyal fans!! Thx jonpfl programs don't run on loyalty. they run on cold hard cash. there is no way you can build a fanbase or a program by grandfathering in donation levels over the long haul. it's a disincentive for younger fans and alumni. why should they have to pay more for less? not only that but it would bleed a program dry,. A buddy of mine is a Kansas Basketball ticket holder. He said they did something similar years ago. All the oldtimers were pissed because those center court seats that they were paying a $100 donation for were now going to require a $5,000 donation even though they had held them (and in many cases passed them down to a relative) for years. USF wants nothing more than market value for their tickets and in the long run this system will allow it. I'm relatively young and have had season tickets for a long time. I've upgraded my donation level 3 times. This new system will allow me to upgrade my seats for no increase in donation. I consider this a generous gift for not only my loyalty but my increased donations along the way. BTW it was great when they reseated the sundome to allow for higher level donors to get premium seats then as well. Funny to see Kansas basketball and USF in the same sentence. I guarantee you that if those people in Kansas didn't renew, there would be 10 people in line to buy those tickets. I have no problem paying more for a better product but I have been following USF for too long and keep hearing the same song and dance (we need more money to compete, we are going to put a better product on the field, etc). Market value for USF tickets is about 20% of their printed value!!! Thx jonpfl

    All, Is anyone else upset with the new pricing model? It seems like the "grandfathered donations" have been pushed out the window and they are charging on a per ticket basis now (and thus essentially telling the faithful donors that their years of donating mean nothing). Has anyone else had a massive increase in prices? I believe my 8 tickets cost me $3200 last year (with donation) and now I have to pay $5000 to get the same seats (with 1 less parking pass). Thx jonpfl
  12. Troy's status?

    All, Anyone have an update? That looked to be an ugly sprain. Thx jonpfl
  13. I was going to use my iPad which I assume should be fine. Thx jonpfl
  14. Is this reliable? I really want to watch the game and prefer not paying $10 for one game but will if I have to. Thx
