  1. I have friends and family that have season hoops tickets at schools like Marist and Central Conn. and Hockey season tix at RPI and Union . Compared to these places we get NOTHING other than the seats we sit in. Those fans willing to shell out for a full season commitment should get some type of "Perk"--we get none.

  2. I received the "brochure" yesterday. I guess this is in lieu of the renewal packet we usually get. No dealine to renew hoops season tickets? Not very good marketing.

    Not much is done to cultivate and encourage renewals. They kind of take it for granted that we'll line up at the window.

     

     

    There really is no excuse for this nonsense. I emailed Carmelina in the Alumni office about discrepancies in the "Tickets Renewal" brochure and she said she knew nothing (which is vey rare--because she has always been a HUGE help before) and the ticket office is totally separate. I emailed them only to have the ticket email address reject.

    Someone on this blog must have connections with Charlie Voelker or higher and find out what the deal is for renewals (if no "deal" for renewals, at least some common courtesies for our loyalty would be appropriate) and WHY the brochure sends people to the web site for NON-EXISTANT information about a multi-sport stadium??

    Why didn't you e-mail Charlie Voelker?

    I called Friday morning. got voice mail. Have not received a response

  4. Somebody at UA needs to own-up. The team, parents, fans and the community deserve an explanation. Was this an ncaa decision or did UA choose ridculously not to host?? Like I said previously, Dr. McElroy needs to make some noise. There are times when being politically correct is important and times when fighting for what's right is even more important.

     

    I have been a season ticket holder basketball/football/volleyball and lacrosse for as long as season tickets have been available (almost 40 years in some sports) and this latest whimmpy response along with the long delayed stadium has me saying WHY BOTHER? The administration does not seem to care at all about athletics.

    I get the feeling this decision was made higher up than McElroy.
