    And reward attendance by awarding students who go to the games with points towards their grades.

    There used to be rewards for students who attended games. They had cards that were stamped at every athletic event. I'm sure the rewards weren't associated with grades, but there were perks for showing up.

    When I proctored exams for my boss in the business school, all those students said they would happily attend every home game and stay til the final horn if they could be entered in a drawing to have $1000 of their tuition waived for the quarter. Have 5 different winners for FB, MBB, WBB, Baseball, and Softball. Throw in soccer if you want. Students can only win 1 time in an academic year.

    This KISS method was proven to work many years ago and involved a used car. Our leaders scrapped it And pretend it never happened.

    Have more prizes, donít limit eligibility for prizes. Just for the top prize. If someone already got the $1000, give them second prize and draw for $1000 again.

    This was actually discussed also, a different giveaway for each home game. Then have all the students names thrown in a hopper (as many games as you attend is how many times your name is put in the hopper) for a grand prize at the end of the season. You could do multiple $40-$50 prizes per game. With good attendance, you cancel out any giveaways in 1st quarter concessions anyway.

    We really need to do a study to see how other G5 schools approach ticket pricing, promotions and building attendance. Our approach seems to have been ďstick it to the loyal fansĒ (and) donít try things that might grow the fan base.

    Re: Will you increase financial support in light of coaching change?

    What is the general consensus of ticket prices? Do you feel we were overcharged for the product that Dooley or Dykes put on the field? I know we were overcharged for the Holtz product. I don’t see ticket prices or promos getting any cheaper. However, I do expect the value for our dollar to go up if we can restore our game day experience and product to pre Holtz standards.

    Our prices went up because Tommy boy looked around, saw who was currently paying, and charged them more. It's that simple.

    We are back to the fan gathering stage and have lost literally hundreds of long time supporters who had been giving for many, many years. I'm one of them. I know many more.

    Re: Will you increase financial support in light of coaching change?

    I have been unhappy with Skip Holtz since he lost to Tulane and Northwestern on our sacred home turf then add SMU - all games that solidified and showcased the fact that Skip possessed almost no math skills. I was finally done with him when I learned that our punter, Gerald Shouse, would have been CUSA punter of the year his senior year had Skip Holtz not been so stupid as to fail to keep track of the stats and allow Louisiana Tech to miss out on that award because our punter was 1/2 punt short of the minimum to be considered - that was the season Skip kept toying with the rugby style punts from a different punter.

    So to sum up: even though I was saddened each morning for about eight years waking up and realizing it was no nightmare, Skip Holtz really was still Tech’s HC, we continued our LTAC donation and DAC tickets and even kept 10 chairbacks - I will always support Tech and I believe in Dr Les Guice.

    PS: I was hoping for Tim Rattay.

    Re: Will you increase financial support in light of coaching change?

    Unfortunately all I can say is that Iíll attend on a game by game basis until Tech returns to some degree of reasonable pricing. Tech was all out stupid and arrogant to price their seasons tickets and parking pass prices out of the range of the most populous fans. It looks all the worse for the future as the costs of everything loom to go higher and higher. Leisure money may be in short supply for at least 2022. Maybe AD Wood will see this approach to having a fan base as something else he needs to change.

    No argument there, but if someone can’t figure out how to ensure that at least 75% of the student population attends games, it seems to me that would indicate a SEVERE problem. The team literally belongs to those students (imho).

    The students will vote in favor of the much needed fee. Academia does not want it and will not allow the vote. Typical leftist turds…

    At this point, 33% of the student population at football, 5% at basketball, baseball, and softball should be celebrated. We are well short of that.
