Doubleheader?
According to today's paper, it looks like our women's game at Verizon against UAF, on Dec. 21st, will be part of the doubleheader with the UAF men vs. Valpo. This is rather disappointing to me for several reasons. We are being given 1500 tickets (It's UAF's home game) basically for season ticketholders. The fact that it will be a doubleheader pretty much guarantees that the rest of the tickets will be bought up by hog fans. Thus we are sure to be outnumbered 10-1 or more. I was also looking forward to see how much the women's game would draw as a stand alone event (10K or more?). As a stand alone event, LR fans could have walked up and bought tickets like anyone else. Now tickets will be limited for LR fans. Still should be a great event. The fact that the women will be playing to a full house, even if our fans will be way outnumbered should be a great experience for our girls.

I guess I should add that the paper did not make it clear if it will be an "actual" doubleheader or just happen on the same day. I guess the women, for example, might play at 2pm and the hog/Valpo game might be at 7pm and require a separate ticket. This scenario may actually make the most sense for UAF if they want to maximize their income (which I am sure they do). On the other hand, they may just make tickets for the doubleheader $35 instead of the usual $25 and make their money that way.

It will take two tickets, just like at ASU. Two stand alone games on same day.

Okay, that does make the most sense. There should be plenty of tickets for any Little Rock fan that wants to support our ladies. The hog's men's game will bring plenty of fans into Little Rock, who may well come out to the lady's game as well. Should be a win-win for everybody.
