You can't even make a logical conclusion from your own assertion. So do some simple math:
Let's pretend that 30k is designated to the SS. Each ticket is $30 each. Per game, that is 900k gross.
The remaining stadium has 79k at $90 per game. That is a $7,110,000 gross per game. That is 7.11 million peeps.
That is a nearly 7.3:1margin of difference between the gross revenue of the SS and everyone else. Do you see the difference now? Who exactly is the AD actually serving?
And just keep in mind something, my $90 per game cost for the other 79k seats isn't even close to what they actually gross since PSLs and luxury box cost weren't taken into consideration. Add conservatively another 1 million there. Making it closer to a 8:1 margin conservatively.
Finally, are 30k presumed student body buying merchandise, concessions, etc.?
This argument about who these games are for is laughable. It is about every cotton-picking Michigan fan, not just the students. The AD makes the big money off us Alumni who are addicted to this thing we call Michigan football. The fact anyone is debating it is shocking to say the least.
