Yep. I'll either pony up or move to the yellow. If it means the place is full or at least 4-5k consistently, I'll stand at the top if I have to.

Any chance the rebounders come back in his first year?

I don't know. After the half-assed effort and commitment from the last two head coaches with Rebounders, we'll just have to wait and see. I'm not enthusiastic about putting a lot of time into it again without a long term commitment from the new staff AND a viable plan to establish a solid base to allow the group grow and be what it could become.

Our fans were burned by Haase not continuing his commitment to the group past year one (contrary to his verbal promises) and again by Eshan who begged us to bring it back only to not follow through with his grand vision of meetings and events during the 2018-19 season.

It will take a lot of selling to get people to take the plunge in joining for a third time in 8 years.

Totally fair. I was only around for the Ehsan attempt, but I had forgotten how many thing they cancelled.

It also looks like they cut it in a few spots. My section used to have a $50 donation and now there isn't one.

You can expect premium fees to come with comparable seating at the new BJCC Stadium when UAB gets to use it. The best seats will charge the highest premiums just as at Bartow. UAB Athletics has just begun to build the new facilities needed to match what our competitors have had for years.

They actually dropped the seating chart for the new stadium in the most recent brochure, and it's not too bad:

Same baseline price of $125. I'm guessing that I'll end up in the East Scholarship Seating section.

RE: football ticket renewal
Looks like we’ll pay the $75 for the family/friend zone and go stand in front of the handicapped.

Probably upper level on the east side or as far as up on the lower level to keep dad out of the sun. I’m for seats within both 30yd lines or bust. We’ll probably go to renew after this virus moves on. Still sitting next to the press box at LF.

Is this the home or away side?

RE: football ticket renewal
I would expect that while attendance in football has increased the number of season ticket holders still is rather low in comparison. I understand the push for getting a spot in the new stadium but I just don't see that the demand in the new stadium is going to be that much greater than the demand at Legion Field. I could be wrong.

We have trouble drawing 30,000 on our own without help.

Tying football and basketball tickets together also wouldn't be a good thing. There are quite a few fans who like football that don't like basketball.

You also have to wonder if football will be hindered like basketball was hindered by putting an upper cap on attendance like Bartow Arena did.

Maybe not, but we certainly didn't see it coming in basketball.

Bad coaching has put an upper cap on attendance for the last 4 years...

Seriously when is the last time we’ve even threatened to average near capacity at bartow??
