Hard for me to imagine that ANYONE would pay that kind of dough for tickets to Miami and Utah, given their likely widespread availability on the secondary market at much better prices. Harder still to imagine how DB thinks he can sell thousands and thousands of such tickets. I'll be very interested to see what Plan B is, both this year and going forward. Starting to win 10 games regularly would obviously help. Not sure if there is any way to keep non-strudent tix off the secondary market. You could do something ID-based, but I can't imagine how you could get 100K people into the game with such a system.

UM is still one of only a handfull of D-1 programs that runs a surplus at all, and there are a pretty big number of big-confrence/high-revenue schools that do not. He's also spread a lot of money around to the non-revenue sports on facilities and coaches. I think he is due for constructive cricicism in a number of areas, but he seems to me to have been a responsible steward of the department's money. I think there is more $$ from donors to be had, which would allow him to not lean into some of his more controversial funding as much. I remain hopeful that he will develop a better "ear" and modify some of his cash-chasing accordingly.

MGoBrother and I always take our kids to a September game; as a good planner, I asked him whether I should pull on one of the packages. He hit it right on the nose -- "let's figure out which of those games we want, and hit the secondary market. Cheaper, and easier."

what the hell you are talking about, but kudos to the OP for acknowledging that a fellow poster could improve his method. OP, let me know if you ever run for office -- you have my vote.

I fail to see how this sells the brand, school, etc. Seems to me to be a "lookit me" move by the AD. Can't be a moneymaker vis-a-vis another home or JerryDome game, what with the travel, etc.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||This is surprising||
how is Dakich not worth as much as, say, almost anyone who plays for the Knicks?
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Well-Done||
and well-deserved. Am hoping for the shocker that he stays to catch a lottery pick in 2015, but am ready to say a heartfelt thanks and wish him the best in the NBA.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||I'm On Board||
for the Beveled Guilt-Bang, and to send some tangible support to keep it MGoingOn. As always, this board showed its stuff during the tourney run. Great information/analysis and great postings (mostly). Well-done, MGoGang.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Great season||
B10 champs, solo, Elite Eight. Lost to a hell of a talented team. Well-done boys.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Can't just watch these guys||
Got to get in front of them and put a body on the off guy.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Nik!||
He's eating them up
|15 weeks 2 days ago||With Vonleh in the draft||
I would advise McGary, Nic and GRIII to take a pass this year, and go out in 2015 when the talent level will be less deep.
Who's with me?
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Bring on the Vols!||
Obvious fact is obvious, but anyone getting to the Sweet Sixteen can bring it. Going to need another top effort, esp to not get crushed on the glass.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||not loving||
watching UT outrebound Mercer by about 3:1. Guh.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||UK/Lousiville Matchup a good one||
two tough outs. Both UT and Mercer look pretty dang serviceabvle from a talent perspective.

That is a hell of a lot of money guaranteed. Hard to see how he gets a LOT more than this even if he repeats last year. Which seems unlikely. Lots more stuff could happen this year that cost him a big chunk of that.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Welcome back||
and here's hoping next year is a lot different than this year. But, there should certainly be succession plans in the works. All great things come to an end.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Incredibly funny||
what a great guy.

|15 weeks 3 days ago||Doesn't get any easier||
both of these teams present some touch match-ups. That said, we have had a pretty long string now of games against teams with strong guard play and big, defensive-minded squads. Not going to be easy, and this team is not going to turn into a lockdown outfit any time soon, but the defense is trending in the right direction.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||BANG on!||
Great game, guys!!

|15 weeks 4 days ago||Defense to close these guys||

|15 weeks 4 days ago||GRIII||
has come on last 6-7 games. Great to see we have someone else to stop the bleeding and that he is looking for the opportunity to take it.
