    Oh, I know. When I said "do the math" at the end, I didn't mean it in a bad way. sorry about that. I just meant, "hey, we should ALL DO THE MATH", because we're paying for this coach.

    If LA Tech loses 10K paying customers (fans) from JAS each year because of poor play, that's a gate decrease of -$250,000 per game in ticket revenue alone. Over an average 6 homes games per season, that's a decrease in ticket revenue of -$1.5M per year. EVERY year. And that doesn't include the expected decreases in LTAC contributions or the decrease in concessions. Holtz should really think about this stuff.
    We need to start checking our numbers. Is everyone aware that our 2016 season, five home games, garnered only $l,212,000 or just an average of $242,000 per game in ticket sales? 2017 figures arent available yet. If we loose 10,000 fans per game then we have no ticket sales at all. Forget about the "announced" attendance, its the paid customers that count and thats where we are really hurting at present.

    I heard from reliable sources Alabama has open dates in 2024 and 2025 and they are willing to pay $400,00 for each or $750,000 for both. Sounds like a TMac special.

    Why would 2017 numbers not be available yet?

    I’ll take both dates for $1.5million each.

    Interesting approach trying to get more money. You should talk to Tommy, he usually takes a different approach I hear.

    The Crimson Tide will pay a combined $6.71 million for a quartet of home nonconference games scheduled between 2021-2029 after agreeing to host Southern Miss, Utah State and Western Kentucky for an average of $1.9 million between 2021-2023, according to game contracts obtained through an open-records request.
    Research works wonders maybe a booster will do the same!

    So, we need to start pushing for a $2million purse for getting our shins kicked in. Great! TMac has it in the bag!

    The excuse we always hear is that Tech commands less of a payout because we are better than many G5s who won't spoil homecoming.

    But it's not 1999 anymore. Skip's record speaks for itself. We should be getting 1.5-2 mil per body bag.

    You bring up a good point we are not threat to win games against P5 schools like we used to be.
