I think that the Michgan athletic department needs to do something about lower bowl season ticket holders that don't attend the games.  I have tried on several occasions to get lower bowl tickets to UM hoops games against "less than stellar" teams for my son and i.  The prices on Stubhub, etc are ridiculous . . . we then buy tix in the upper bowl and when at the game, realize that the lower bowl is half empty.

Either show up or lose your season tickets.  We already have a horrible reputation for lower bowl ticket holders sitting on their hands quietly during the games - lets at least motivate people to show up.

The expensive sections that run along the court opposite the sides on which the teams sit have a lot of corporate ticket holders.  There are also some expensive donors who have seats in that region.  This was largely populated under Brandon's idiotic reseating activity that was managed poorly and ill thought out.  

It should be changed.

are for the most part not ridiculously priced on stubhub (at least within 24 hours of gametime.) I monitor this pretty closely and if you consider the face value of the ticket plus the seat license amortized on a per game basis, most games have a large  number of tickets in the lower bowl for sale, at or lower than that price. Now you can argue whether the face value is too high or the seat license is too high, but it seems inappropriate to criticize someone not being willing to sell their tickets at a substantial loss, even though some do.
