What's up BullsPen, let me shed some light on the current ticket and attendance situation from my perspective. I graduated from USF and I love my school and root for my team and every chance I get.
The problem I have is, I can't buy season tickets even if I wanted to because I have 4 sons that play little league football (TBYFL) and their games always seem to fall around the same time USF play on Saturday's.
Thursday nights is really a no go with the 7:30pm start times which is really more like an 8pm start time because it's a school night for my kids and with the length of the games and travel time back to South Tampa (Interbay) wich is really not that far from RJ, my kids would be getting in bed at 11pm.
Friday night games are better but the problem there is that high school football in Tampa is a big deal and I have nephews that play and my kids and I go to their games. So it's not that I don't want to support my team but with these non traditional game days It's just a lot easier to DVR it and watch when I get back home.
To tie this back to the point of the ticket prices I am not sure no price point could solve my issues and I am pretty sure there are a lot of alums in my situation or something similar. Now I make it my goal to try and get to two home games a year on a Saturday that don't conflict with my kids little league football. I think we need to come to a realization that people find it more convenient to watch the games from home not necessarily out of want but out of need.
