I missed those years I didn't realize any neutral site games were included in season ticket purschases. Must have happened before I started getting season tickets. That's an interested strategy.

Yeah, I don't think I'm willing to risk it for $600 for my wife and I

I would say big neutral site games help season ticket sales when they are included as part of the package like in years past.

This doesn't take into account the new coach bringing his guys with him as transfers etc. Buzz kinda did this in year one but the dynamics have changed even since then. It would need to be the right level of program/players.

I would loathe a Cronin hire for this reason and a few others.

I've seen a lot of receivers do the foot drag, granted it's not nearly as pronounced at this one, but I think it's a tactic used to cause the defender to hesitate if just for a moment. If you watch any of Odell Beckham's training videos on Instagram he does this relentlessly; however, he doesn't do it like Tahj is doing here. Tahj breaks his smooth stride when he does it, it's more pronounced slight of "foot?" but when Odell does it, he does it in a manner that it makes the defender actually believe that he's getting ready to cut left, right, or curl.

Who has to be Ant-Man?

Be careful with Craigslist, saw some decent tickets on there yesterday, but all were scams. DO NOT SEND ANYONE MONEY. Ask to meet in person or no deal.

Again I thought this was referring attendance in general

Man that's depressing

Yeah, I think people forget that Buzz didn't build VT basketball. He just recognized it as a place where he could be successful. It had the necessary core components when he arrived, except for the coach.

Buzz definitely proved he was right.

Some VT basketball fans have been here for a long time.

Thanks for the welcome!

You are absolutely right about Hokie fans and Hokie nation! It's been great for the country to see more of a "football enthusiasm" in the Cassell!

Another one of the thousands looking for tickets. rstraz at gmail dot com

For awhile in the late 1990's we (VT Men's Rowing) held the course record for Men's lightweight 4+ at the old Head of the Rivanna race, UVA's home waters.

As far as "marquee" games goes, it doesn't matter than Notre Dame is part of the ACC agreement. It's still a game worth going to.

And some games like West Virginia and Tennessee are premium OOC games, just not a part of the home schedule, so not part of the value that a season ticket holder gets (though they would have gotten priority in terms of seat selection).

Yeah, no glitter. No fried chicken, no cow patties, no fruit loops, no blue moons, yellow stars or green clovers.

I'm wondering if there's many in this crowd that requires gluten free foods.

Ohio State actually recently reduced the capacity of their stadium, by adding some additional luxury boxes. If CBS didn't account for that it could explain the inclusion. Having family that have season tickets, I can tell you they have no trouble selling tickets. My uncle bitches about how they keep going up each year, but continues to buy a pair every year.
