IU: Please buy tickets … pretty please


From IU sports information:

The Indiana University Department of Athletics is offering an outstanding opportunity to see the Hoosier men’s basketball team up close and personal this season. The Hoosier 6th Man Ticket Package will allow fans to receive a ticket for six games for just $159.

“We want as many of the great Hoosier fans to have the opportunity to visit Assembly Hall this season,” said Coach Tom Crean. “We want to continue to have one of the best home court environments in the country and this offer will allow you to share your passion for the Hoosiers with friends and family.”

The 6th Man Ticket Package includes lower level seats for the December 22 game against Northeastern, the December 28 contest against Lipscomb and the Big Ten home opener January 7 against Michigan. Fans also will be able to receive balcony seats in the first few rows at three additional Big Ten games of their choice.

To order call 866-IUSPORTS or visit IUHoosiers.com for information.

    I can understand how football’s “Defend the Rock” has turned into “Attend the Rock…PLEASE!!!” But to see this year’s basketball team playing in front of a sparsely-filled crowd is extremely disappointing. After all Hoosier Nation has been through the past decade +, one would think fans would be beating down the doors to see Indiana basketball being played with the energy, intensity and integrity fans have come to expect for generations. Worse yet, what kind of message is such lackluster attendance sending to this team about Hoosiers’ passion for hoops? Remember most of these boys have never seen the excitement and enthusiasm our fans usually display in Assembly Hall- that’s what Crean sold most of them on. Now that they’ve arrived, we’re putting up crowds more akin to those at far lesser institutions. It’s a shame these players and coaches aren’t being welcomed with the full force and support of IU’s fans. It makes us look pretty superficial to profess such passion for the game, yet only to attend in paltry numbers- especially our students. Shame on us all for not giving this team the embrace it so desperately needs and deserves from us at such a critical time in our team’s rebirth. I’ve got my tickets, and I’ll happily buy yours if you’re one of our recently exposed fair weather fans.

    I’m not paying hundreds of dollars to sit up in the balcony for half my games. Go ahead alumni, eat those up. It’s a joke how they’ve taken advantage of the students the past few years and it’s finally coming back to bite them.

    The state of Indiana has such fair weather fans. It’s amazing. No one cared about the Colts, then these random fans start appearing. No one here cares about the football team. Everyone was loving the Pacers, until they started losing. Now Indiana basketball can’t sell tickets, ’cause the team isn’t good. Such bad sports fans in this state.

    13,000 or 14,000 last night is as good as any past exhibition game. IU will sell out all big games and Big 10 games, no worries. The pre-season games in Bloomington are awful! I cannot wait for Dec 6 in Indy though. I will say again that IU did this and it is coming back to haunt them. When IU over-doubled student ticket prices a few years ago, times were good and now that has changed. IU athletics is to blame for all of this. If the coaching carousel had never happened and they did not raise student ticket prices so high…this all would have never happened with the non selling of student tix. Crazy but blame IU!!! but I finally got tickets in my own name so I am thrilled!

    UCONN has a womens team ranked #1 and the men in the top 5 with smaller arenas and has the same ticket problem with each.

    The problem is that no one wants to pay to sit in a seat where they can’t see the game or the scoreboard, especially not $25-$30. Not when you can watch it in sparkling HD from home. I love the mystique of Assembly Hall, but if they really want to fill it, then this is what has to be done. The “cheap” seats should actually be cheap so that families and other fans who come just for the atmosphere can afford to go. Besides in a year or two the team will be very strong and fun to watch and then all the seats will be sold out again.

    You just decribed 99% of sports fans in the world. Tell us something new. I like this package, as its not all nose bleed/1 slip fall to your death seats.
