    Yes, they do, but not from the standpoint you think. I am well above the 100 point mark so it's not personal. IMO it does not make good business sense. I would be going after the young ALUM who can afford to to give under a $100 to few extra hundred dollars a year. These folks don't have the $$$ to give $1K or more a year. In the current set up, there is no incentive for that demographic and I think we need those folks to go to the next level. So at this point I don't think the extra perk for the athelte is worth the loss. of course I dont know the books either so.....

    I agree that there should be some sort of push to get to the younger fan bass. If you look in the stands during the game there are ALOT of old people on the screen.

    In past 10-15 years how many former student athletes that received the 100 PP is an actual member of TM? 100 PP don’t matter if they don’t join and donate. I am over 100 PP also but that was my driving goal to get over that mark quickly.

    I like the app idea for the students.

    Now that I've moved I'll probably only make 2 games or so each year, which means I'm watching on TV. I have to say, it sure is nice to have a beer as I watch.
    BINGO. Solve the problem of selling beer in the stadium. Sellouts return.

Instead of physical tickets for $6 at the Student Union, students will jump all over a ticketing app. Is that lazy? Maybe, but that is the way folks are being trained. Heck, WalMart and McDonalds let you order via app and do the work of shopping or carrying the food for you (unless you go inside in which case you get to be the counter person or the cashier). As far as the age of the fans, it sure looks already like senior citizens are the bulk of the crowd judging by the amount of gray hair I see on the TV. Of course, they are the ones that can afford the good season ticket seats and just as many of those great sideline seats are empty early as is the student section.
    They have to go to a specific physical place and pay in person for a paper ticket? That is an abomination. Seriously. It’s not even about training. It’s common sense. Everyone is walking around with computer in their pocket that connects them instantly to the entire world.

    Not sure why they didn’t go online like the regular season tickets did. I always thought it was because they actually wanted less students because instead of $5 they could turn around and sell them for $30.

    I think that might only be for the playoffs where they have a physical ticket they pickup.
