    The most expensive tickets available are through the school, there are cheaper options everywhere. Supporting the university is great but with the way things are, I don't blame anyone looking at cheaper options.

    How much cheaper? It's it drastically cheaper?

    If you aren't a priority does it matter? If you can pick your seats for $20 less instead of being prioritized last, I don't blame anyone. We have 2200 RCAF members, we are the minority. There was always a lot of complaining of where people were assigned seats because opinions differ of what is a good seat.

    I don't think we sell 10,000 tickets through the university. I also think we have less than 20,000 in attendance.

    Just curious why you think that? Disappointing year? Same bowl for 5th time?

    I think it's a lot of things, economy probably biggest thing.

    It's a few things.

    -The team has been inconsistent all year with a 6-6 record
    -Some people are still upset about the locker room video and Hud's reaction
    -Christmas obligations
    -The newness of the New Orleans Bowl has gone a little stale
    -People are struggling with the lackluster local economy

    Of course, I will still be there.

    I don't think people get tired of going to New Orleans if they have the money.

    In previous seasons, we were making travel plans with several weeks left in the season. At the same time this season, we were ready to get money together for a buyout.

    The local economy has been in the crapper for a long time.

    The flood didn't help.

    The novelty has worn off. One year absence from that bowl is not enough.

    Honestly, we shouldn't go back to NOLA again before we play Miss St. Then, we'll bring a huge crowd, and we need a huge crowd for that game way more than we need to be in NOLA for this Bowl.

    Yeah, that would have been bad. Can't see LA saying 'we'd love to come, but due to flooding, job loss, and Hud alienating a large number of fans we're looking for a much smaller platform, maybe another time.

    Playing in a bowl game will have zero effect on our attendance of a game against the SEC 3 years away..we might not even have the same coach. Considering the economy, Nola is the best place for us to go.

    All signs were pointing to a big drop in attendance and I didn't think we should pop that bubble, but we will.
    Don't worry. If the ticket sales are as bad as they say they are we'll definitely get a different bowl game next year.

    After losing to NMSU, a bowl wasn't on my radar (and probably many other individuals). Made other plans about that time, never thinking of the bowl picture.

    This , getting bowl eligible the last game of the season only 2 weeks out will hurt as well.

    This response doesn't answer my question. And yes, the amount of difference does matter for a lot of people. Hence the question. I've not seen how drastic the price difference is via other outlets.

    You are capable of answering your own question. Even if you pay the same price people like to choose where they sit.

    Money that would normally be earmarked for a bowl trip was dedicated elsewhere. When oil is 100, that doesn't matter. When it's been <50 for 2 years, it matters.

    The Nevada bowl showed some softening of the fan base due to unmet expectations. This year it will be stark.
