    " Chances the under reporting of the attendance numbers at b-ball games this year are going into that GDAC slush fund you speak of?" What does that have to do with GDAC donations?
  2. 2017-18 Season

    It's nothing something I "speak of". GDAC donation dollars are all "unrestricted" meaning they can be used for anything athletics wants to use them for, ie: a slush fund. If you donate to Athletics and designate it to something, it doesn't count as a GDAC donation. As for your question about attendance and GDAC, I'm not sure I understand what you're asking....

    Let's be honest the thread is really only a few people talking about firing CB and everyone else saying they're crazy, that's all.
  4. UMBC

    Looking like a great showing for AE..... fingers crossed for history tonight.
  5. 2017-18 Season

    If you know who to ask it can. Officially it does not count.
  6. 2017-18 Season

    Which is great to designate ..unless they "force" you to donate it to the GDAC slush fund for benefits where you will never know what it is used for. You want to donate $5k for a basketball scholarship that won't get you parking but $1k donation for for the GDAC slush fund will. 😒
  7. Men’s NIT

    MTS puts it to Vermont 64-91. Normally I'd route for an AE team in the NIT.. however, I want MTS and St. Mary's to put on a clinic and show the NCAA they should have included those mid majors.

    Do you really think cutting prices in half would double attendance?Cutting them by 75% would quadruple attendance? The program is not a money maker as it is. We all want this amenity and that amenity, but also think it's too expensive? They need to do everything in their power to build a fanbase... Sell out building regularly then start raising prices to maximize profits.They are doing the opposite... Jacking prices and mandatory donations to buy season tickets... Instead of growing the fanbase and then wonder why people feel priced out. Marketing 101. Will be interesting what route they go next year with the tax changes and if they have to change things up not because of lack of butts in seats but new tax law. I know this article was in December but it does talk about larger schools and how donations are required for certain things and the new tax law.. http://www.newsobserver.com/news/politics-government/politics-columns-blogs/under-the-dome/article190121014.htmlor this newer article about what athletic depts are going to have to do in 2018 and forward http://www.crainscleveland.com/article/20180206/blogs06/151026/tax-law-could-hit-home-major-way-collegiate-athletic-departments Hopefully they do something that makes sense..... however.... since even their current GDAC pamphlets don't match what the AD says in the Q&A sessions.. I kind of lack the confidence. Or we'll probably never be told the changes.. like other things.. sigh.
  10. Women's Basketball 2017-18

  12. Butts in the Seats 2018 edition

    Well if the school won't promote the game then they can't complain that no one comes to the games.. Just sad that they won't advertise.. I mean social media is free...
  13. Butts in the Seats 2018 edition

    Speaking of butts in the seats... Has anyone seen anything on social media postings, billboards, advertisements at all to the general public tickets about our MBB game on Saturday?
  14. Travis has a sprained MCL. (post game on eson3 per twitter)
  15. With the SB win at UMBC, SB clinches the 5 seed, I think this means we play SB on 3/3 if we win both our last games..and UMBC wins one of their games..
