Re: Bovee on attendance

Look, I have 4 kids. They range in age from 16-6. They have social lives, homework, dance, piano, baseball, basketball, and a half dozen other responsibilities. To be honest, driving up to a weeknight basketball game against Podunk State isn't really a priority for my family right now. And attendin...

Re: Bovee on attendance

2018 home attendance through six games: 6,177 avg 2019 home attendance through six games: 7,704 avg We are doing fine. That's a 25% YOY increase, and we have been "Aggied Out" with all the events packed into the last 2.5 weeks. Last year's non-conference attendance was 6,300 per game, and rose to 7...

Re: Bovee on attendance

This is a lame excuse and possibly only a minor reason, but I think part of it has to do with 6 home games in a row against low ranking opponents. To me it can feel exhausting, but at the same time games are an all day thing for me. I can't see why students cant show up for two hours. I also wish s...

Bovee on attendance

So it’s getting noticed. The energy of the crowds that are showing up have been great but there’s just not enough people. It is frankly sad. We announced 8,667 tonight. There is no. Way. In. Hell. There were that many people there. https://i.postimg.cc/4nPrxb50/9-E52-DAFE-CD70-430-E-A12-F-DC2-F46235...

Re: Loved the post game with Coach Smith

Sorry to be a broken record but in addition to the mid-week games being an issue, the six games in 21 days is also problematic, especially when 0.5 of those games are against attractive opponents. My primary interest in seeing more people at the games is purely selfish...it is more fun when the plac...

Re: We desperately need ticket promotions for the next three games

It's not a matter of having great fans or not having great fans. The issue is purely that we had ~~6,500 people at a game last night, it was clear for some time that this game would have lesser attendance, and it's not clear what, if anything, was done to mitigate. Here's the challenge faced here: 1...

Re: We desperately need ticket promotions for the next three games

Go look at the ticket site. Far too many available tickets. Six games in two weeks is far out of the norm for our fan base and is fatiguing for people who aren’t season ticket holders. And I’m of the opinion that we should be near selling out given the quality and hype of this team. How many opportu...

We desperately need ticket promotions for the next three games

Looking at available tickets, the sell rate for our next three games is nothing short of pathetic. It is unusual to have five home games (six if you count the exhibition) in such a compressed period of time. Couple that with mostly no name opponents, and we are missing key opportunities to pack the ...

The crowd and students specifically were in January form. I could complain about it not being a sell out but the energy is a 180 from this time last year.

Embarrassing: whoever was responsible for the lights going out twice during free throw shots. Pure amateur hour.
