Question for longtime season ticket holders…

45 posts in this topic

Most of those around us in section 113 are gone. We only renewed 2 instead of 4 and it seemed like a lot of the groups around us that have been there since day 1 at Ray jay have done the same

We are still in Sect.113, but seat mates of ours moved over one section (closer to mid-field).  Different feeling with our new seat mates.  Nothing wrong with them just different.

 

We have had our seats for the past 9 or 10 years and very satisfied with them.

None of the season  ticket holders in section 223 Row A  Seats 12-24  or B  seats 12-20 were there.  I know at least 3 groups that didn't renew.

My section has some new faces that actually get up and cheer, rather than sitting on their hands or complaining about others that get up on 3rd down defense. I think our section has changed for the better. We had too many fuddy-duddies.

We'd been a part of season ticket group since the inaugural season, and yeah we'd been "grandfathered" in, yet part of a group that makes substantial donations as boosters. The ticket office told us our 2 seats that were $600 last year (and a bit of a ripoff at that considering the level of USF's and their competition's play) were now $1200, and our parking pass was being moved back from the lot..9? (right by the stadium on the south side) to behind the Yankee baseball field (again, why? Nobody fills up that first lot) 

 

I thought that was real ballsy of them, considering how hard Skip and Willie have worked to make this program unwatchable, to jack up their long standing supporters. In the group I was in, we had a total of 26 tickets last season, in section 110. Out of those 26, FOUR seats were renewed. The rest, I'm happy to say, told USF to go F...themselves. 

 

Between Willie and Harlan, I'm left to hope they burn in the mess they created, and that something worth watching (and worth paying for) rises from the ashes. Until then, I'm actually happy to see them fail. This group has brought this on themselves, and until someone in athletics decides to care again (and maybe reach out to the many long time ticket holders who finally had enough) they won't be getting any of my money. 

If the other 21 were like you, good riddance.

I've missed more people from my tailgate than in RJS.   People have come and gone often during the years, but this year there are fewer of the diehards still around.   They may have just moved elsewhere.  Hard to know...   I'm in 234.

Ive had my seats in 114 to switch now, miss you guys though Faza....aint the same

You mean you don't like the cheerleader families that sneak into the section and talk about how much better it is at FSU games? That's always a highlight of my game viewing experience.

"Who's our coach now?"

When they started charging the same amount for East and West sections (unlike in the past), I was surprised to see anyone still facing the sun on the East side.  Of course there are a few folks with good reasons to stay, but I hate that the TV faces the much more sparse side of the stadium.

Did we ever get a number on actual season tickets sold?

Good point.

I'm sure Joey'll get right on that.

Your post is somewhat flawed. 2 seats in 110 would be $1000 not $1200 and thats if you don't get an alumni discount. Next that includes the donation. I have been in 111 for more than a decade so I know the pricing. There is no way 2 tickets were $600 including your donation which by your own post you say was "substantial." Any decent size or mid level donation will get you in lot 6D or 6 at a minimum which are both fine. Whatever you were paying you should be grateful you were grandfathered in so long. Rather than be bitter over facts which aren't even accurate, you should find seats you can afford - plenty of cheap ones out there and do what you can to support your team.

 

 

You pretty much beat me to all of that stuff .... I still don't know what in the heck he is talking about with the parking. I highlighted the most important stuff up there. I'm guessing with those 4 renewals there's more money going to the Bulls Club in donations this year than with all those 26 season tickets last year. This is why Harlan had to rip the scab off with the bandaid and do this now, while we're low, so it will heal properly. We have got to get donations up ... the season tix will come with the success.
