Season ticket SALES may be down due to things unrelated to on field product, but ATTENDANCE is down because of it. Usually there are hundreds of people for each season ticket holder, that would buy a ticket, even at face value just to get in one game. Now if a season ticket holder cannot make a game, they cant give their tickets away. That 104,000 number is way over inflated.
I am one of those less fortunate to be able to afford season tickets and clubs and all that. However I usually make it to one game a year, that usually being against the likes of a Kent State. People like me are not showing up this year at Michigan. Michigan boasts that they have one of the biggest fan bases in the country, are you telling me there are not 7500 people out there to take up the slack from low season ticket sales?
