I thought this was done last year as well. Someone takes your question and asks you how long you have been a season ticket holder.
So what you're saying is if you want your question read lie about how long you've been a season ticket holder?
Anyone can call in:
1-877-229-8493 and enter pin 111378
Why would they schedule both of these together?
Old habits die hard. I'm just hoping that the call screeners are up to the challenge, I'm worried that there might be a few "Jack MeHoff" prank calls to fend off.
"Why are we playing UMass in Foxboro, is there something wrong with their stadium?" Great question.
This Husker lady needs to shut up.
We are still recruiting in Louisiana, apparently. Weird.
Well, there certainly seem to be tougher questions getting through this year than there were last year. Last year was total fluff if I remember correctly.
This woman won't shut up.
Well, questions were not fluff this year with that lady getting thru
Agree she would not shut up and has a major axe to grind. She needs to realize the players experience is part of recruiting. Fans come when we win. Period
Major problem is that they seem to assign priority on who gets on the air based on priority points. So we end up with a bunch of callers who are 30-50 year season ticket holders.
Nothing earth shattering on the call. But something that gets reinforced every time I hear RG or Mac is that those guys are dialed in on their jobs. There's not an issue they can't speak to in detail. I don't ever feel like I'm getting pat answers from those guys.
Agreed. I don't hear the admin sticking their noses in, people deferring decision making to them or a coach way in over his head. We have a couple big time leaders here finally.
Lots of tap dancing around the future of RMS. That caller did a good job of pointing out CU consensus desire to get the game back on campus or maybe diversifying the opponents. "Those stupid commercials you have to watch in between plays at sports authority" [emoji2]
RG was non-committal about the future of the series, but it's clearly on his mind. He didn't defend the series. So that's good.
Game day in Boulder...Ingress/egress into the stadium...gates open 2 hours ahead of kickoff instead of 90 minutes.
New concessions got a lot of airtime. That new grub better be good! [emoji14]
So, what was "The Husker Lady's" axe to grind?
obviously closing franklin to tailgating burned some bridges with long-time season ticket holders but what options did they really have?
Oh for Christ's sake! It's just an indoor practice facility! It's not like they put a ****ing bike rack in the middle of Franklin!
Was thinking the same

Had to be done. For stadium convenience, all those folks will get indoor parking that's even more convenient as soon as next year.
I think the main issues are as follows:
1. Old people fear change.
2. Rich people get pissed when they, of all people, get inconvenienced.
3. Long-time CU supporters viewed having a parking pass there as a status symbol in their social circles.
She was clearly the greatest business mind in our generation. Her main point was about how retaining existing ticket holders is less costly than bringing in new ones.
Her question...what is CU doing about retaining existing ticket holders?
She wasn't looking for a parking related answer to address Gold Lot passes. She is local and walks to the game.
RG did placate her by acknowledging, yes, retention is very important. He went down a list of game day experience changes. A new concessions vendor, getting in and out of the stadium, bigger variety of seating options...those were the biggies.
RG had also mentioned earlier in the Q&A how Mortenson and the CUAD are looking at accommodation for Franklin field.
RG never did explain how winning is the most important thing to keep fans. But that was the 500 pound gorilla in the room.
I get the sense that she droned on and on before getting to her point/question. Why is she the "Husker Lady?" Did she want us back in the Big6?
She kept bragging about how they have great support and she should know cause she's from there

Nebraska was her yardstick. "If only CU had HALF the support as Nebraska..."
Ahhh, upset that she can't break out her red every other year and stroll into old Folsom Field
Did I do it right?
If she was truly from there she should know why it is so hard to fill folsom. Fall is some of the prettiest hiking in the nation in the foothills/rockies, Tail end of the season competes with Skiing. There are bike races through October on the weekends, hunting season starts in September/October, people try to get that last fishing trip in before the rivers freeze, and on and and on.
Once they knock the corn down there is nothing to do in Nebraska. That is why the entire state tries to squeeze into that little town on game days.
You can take "the classiest fans in college football" out of Nebraska.....
