RE: SEASON TICKETS SOLD?
I will say we will set a record for the most individual tickets sold and to me that is progress. We will also set a record for corporate tickets as well. I see positive.

I still would not have posted those numbers to prevent this discussion we are having now and to prevent someone from screen shooting this and using numbers that are not anywhere close to being final against us.

It should have been left as "While we are not where we want to be at this state we are not far off our projected pace and we are still on pace to finish overall with record numbers for both individual an corporate season tickets" "There are a lot of individuals and corporate season tickets that are not even projected to come in until mid-July - September and we expect to finish with a flurry"

This is still factual and projects a more positive image than giving a low number and creating a negative image.

Many school systems do this (not Birmingham City Schools), but I've never heard of a for profit company doing this. Which companies in the Birmingham area observe a June 30 year end?

How many season tickets have our conference peers sold in the last few years?

My guess would be that they are... I could be wrong, but he stated the previous high was 1700. I think, with corporation tickets, that number would be higher. again, could be wrong. Hoping it's just individual season tickets sold

These are previous numbers reported by UAB; si it has to be individual for these numbers to make sense

Example: The city of Bham and local businesses provide $500K in contributions to UAB football that are reimbursed as season tickets. At $100 per season ticket thats 5000 corporate-sponsored season tickets. Perhaps that accounts for the previous years' season ticket disparities...
