RE: Disappointed and frustrated in a lack of AD support for MBB
I don't have a problem what people do at the game: homework, cell phones, etc. It is the way things are now. People will reengage when the time is right. Again, the question is how do we sell the product?
I'm sorry to say it, but a new venue sells it. Investing in the program sells it. OU does that. Akron has done that with football. We have done good things with the gym to enhance the atmosphere, but we are reaching our max potential with that place.

I agree. My point wasn’t that they were doing school work it was there was enough room to do it. They basically had everything spread out over 5 or so seats. Other than the Center sections the upper bleachers are pretty empty.

Heard a KSU men’s basketball ad on WKNR this morning. It was promoting the February 17 game versus Akron. Can’t remember the last time I heard an ad for any of our sporting events but was glad to hear this one!

They really need to ramp it up for all sports. They should have radio ads on 92.3 throughout the day and during Browns games. Also on 100.7 during the Cavs games. Then sprinkled throughout other stations. I should also see billboards in a 30 mile radius of the campus.

Another idea I have had over the last week or two is to have an all seasons ticket. Instead of buying season tickets to each sport just have one price for all sports. I think it would sway more people to attend more events.

Sorry while I get the premise I can’t support that idea. Why? Because our D4 punter will take the money and use it on football. I can only support programs that honor our university athletically and academically

Am I the only one getting targeted ads for basketball games? They also sell discounted tickets.

I live in Canton. I've been to 4 home men's B.B. games this year (Cleveland St., Ball St., Oregon State, and Central (I'm 4-0). I don't mind paying $10 or $12 (forget which) at the door for upper G.A.

Tomorrow's game is $20 at the door.

I think I'll stay home and watch it on T.V.

RE: Disappointed and frustrated in a lack of AD support for MBB
Kent State University Men's Basketball should be ashamed to charge $20 for this game. With tickets starting at $6 for the majority of the MAC Season this is nothing short of exploitation of the fan base...albeit a dwindling fan base.

I hope that fans turn out, I really do. And I hope that this game is the catalyst for a long winning streak that extends all the way to Cleveland.

But I also hope that a lesson is learned tomorrow if attendance is poor for this game featuring two teams with losing conference records.

RE: Disappointed and frustrated in a lack of AD support for MBB
The Cincinnati Reds were one of the first teams to start upcharging for "premium" games when the Cardinals and Cubs would come to down. It's simply a smart business decision.

Look at it this way: the place is practically giving tickets away all season long save for one game. In the grand scheme, it all balances out.

If tomorrow doesn't sell out, it will be because these two teams are tanking. Not because of the slightly higher cost.

Not to mention, we're 10th in the league in attendance coming off a conference championship and NCAA appearance. Along with offering the cheapest tickets in the league. You guys aren't coming to the games anyway, so what's the point in complaining?
