Are you more likely to become a football season ticket holder, or renew or enlarge your plan, if we play in the Big Ten?
The same for basketball?
Of course. Why would it change? I'm still a Maryland fan.
Well, you notice we lost about 25% of our football season ticket holders over the past few months. Regardless of the reason, it happened. I'm curious if this will entice people back.
I have had 2 tickets for 12 years. I'm going to look to increase modestly (don't have a huge need to) to simp port the program, same with my TC donation. We all have to step up.
I don't have football tickets. I would buy them immediately if we move to the Big Ten.
I was all ready to get them when Leach was coming. Then we hired Edsall and I figured I'd save my money.
Stopped renewing FB tickets two years ago; would definitely re-up if/when this goes through.
I'm interested in how you came up with that number. When you say we lost 25% of our season ticket holders over the last few months, what do you mean? Season ticket sales are down from last year, but I am not aware that 25% fewer people in the last few months have all of the sudden decided that they are not renewing next year.
I have had season tickets since the 90's. If I could sit through that decade, I am certainly going to continue to go now. In fact, I find a Big 10 schedule to be more appealing overall. I'll take games with Ohio St., Penn St., and Wisconsin every year (assuming, as most have, that we will be put in the Leaders Division) and a home and home 2 out of every 8 years with Michigan, Michigan St., and Nebraska over our current schedule. Yes, there will be games every year with Indiana and occasional years where Minnesota is on our schedule, but I believe games against Northwestern, Illinois, Purdue, and Iowa will be more enjoyable than seeing Duke, Wake, ect.....The only games I am going to miss in the ACC are our annual games with Clemson and N.C. St. to be honest.

Tar Heel: Maryland term for stepping in Duke
Duke: Maryland term for dog s@#$
Probably going from 2 to 4 for football, but that was probably happening regardless of the move.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
I may have returned as a FB season ticket holder in 2014 regardless, but I'm probably more likely to get tickets now. The main reason is that my kids will be older and able to handle sitting through a game after tailgating.
i'm sure the novelty of playing B10 teams will boost attendance in the first few years. What we really need is long-term sustained increase in donations and support of the football program
and a new coach that can facilitate those things.
How does this stop us from accomplishing both?
I absolutely will be buying season tickets now. I hadn't before because I knew I could get a ticket to any game.
