    Vols lowering prices!

    On the front sports page here in my hometown there's an article were Tn is lowering their season ticket prices. Once you get to reading it you learn that there in the upper deck. I was told by a friend of mine who is a big alumni that they offered Strong 4.1 (making him I believe the 3rd highest paid coach in the SEC) to come which as we know turned them down. So how is it you offer that kind of money and now you lowering ticket prices? Yeah they have some big boosters but according to my friend they're upset and not shelling it out. Oh well, as the rocky flops.

    They're also offering some season tickets in the nosebleed section WITHOUT requiring a donation to obtain them. They are really hurting. If the new HC (what's his name?) doesn't start to turn things around, then they may have to rip the upper deck off Neyland Stadium and sell the steel. And Haslam spent his billions on the Cleveland Browns and is pouring his money in there. Tut tut.

    It makes sense. Ticket prices and the economy were discussed as reasons for low attendance throughout college football in 2012. By lowering the ticket prices, UT allows more fans to attend, which then generates more revenue throughout the city of Knoxville and the university.

    Maybe the lower prices are for half games. Because where I was setting they were leaving early in the 3rd quarter. Wasn't sure if they had only paid for 2 quarters or whether they were practicing a fire drill.

    Re: Vols lowering prices!

    I forgot to post this topic last week I have purchased tickets to the Bama/UT game from the Vols athletic office the last three times we played up there so I get emails from them. They sent me an email last week stating that they have season tickets available for $300.00 and you are not required to make a donation. Wonder if all those long time ticket holders they cut years ago will come back?

    With this schedule, tickets should be $300.00

    Austin Peay-Knoxville

    Western Kentucky -Knoxville
    Wonder if Petrino will beat them

    Oregon-Eugene, OR

    Florida-Gainesville, FL

    South Alabama-Knoxville

    Georgia-Knoxville

    South Carolina-Knoxville


    Alabama-Tuscaloosa

    Mizzou-Columbia, MO

    Auburn-Knoxville

    Vandy-Knoxville

    Kentucky-Lexington
    If God wanted me to be humble, he would have sent me to Auburn.

    The Vols football team's choir have been singing "We'll be home for Christmas" for their finale.

    They've scheduled Oregon, I see. That will be worth watching.

    You would have to go back to the late 90's to find that answer.
