    CSU always comes up with lots of last minute tickets. You know, once they turn in their cans and get the blood donation money.

    that is an impressive showing by them, and a terrible one by us.

    I'd assume that might be calculated.

    My first thought as well.

    My second thought was that even when we allow our season ticket holders to opt out of the game, we STILL sell more than the goats.

    I'm just happy about the student season ticket number.

    Correct me if I am wrong but, CSU students tickets are free, where as CU students pay to attend.

    If true, the cost to students is proportional to the value of their education.

    Honestly I don't think that is a bad number for CU fans. I would expect most of that number to actually show up unlike the last couple years since people could opt out and it is not on Labor Day weekend. Student number is better but I am still hoping for another 1,000 before Saturday.

    Dave Plati tells me 30% of season ticket holders exercised that option.

    Their last minute sales are cu fans looking for a cheap ticket (50% less).

    Good, so I am assuming you never complain about cu attendance for cu games since you don't go? (I am seriously asking. Not trying to be a smart a$$)

    I don't think I'm a frequent complainer about attendance, but I view Folsom and Invesco as two entirely different things.

    One, I punched somebody at Invesco a few years ago. I'm pretty embarrassed by it (I've been 35 for a decade now). The environment manages to be both toxic and bland, and I think it is a disservice to college football. I want nothing to do with it.

    Two, I was very much under the impression that the AD was encouraging us to opt out of the tickets for political reasons this year. I viewed opting out as supporting the AD.

    Three, I attend all other games.

    I don't think they are free, but CSU only charges the normal student ticket price

    But CU students pay more to attend. It's been a while, but I do seem remember the RMS was always an add on to the student season ticket, just thought it was because Invesco Stadium handled sales not that we were paying a premium for that game.

    "I punched somebody at Invesco a few years ago" - was it a ram's fan? Rep coming!
    "opting out as supporting the AD." - Curious of your thoughts with this. I would think that now that we are canceling the series, don't you think that buying tickets would be supporting the AD? (given that the point was already made and the series will end).

    It was a Ram fan who got in my face and called me a "dirty ****ing hippie". Which is weird because I have a military haircut and dress conservatively. More than anything, he deliberately walked into me, as part of this weird aggression. The embarrassing part was when an older (think 60s or so) admonished me for my poor sportsmanship. **** those guys, but shame on me, too.

    The money for the RMS still gets paid to the AD, it just gets re-invested elsewhere. I pay the same amount for my season tickets. I think RG was trying to get us below our contract numbers, so we could opt out of the RMS early. At any point, I think he was set on both placating the fans that hate the RMS, and also sending a statement to the state of Colorado that this is a matchup that we don't care about.

    True. Plus by opting out they do not have to do a revenue share of that money anymore because it is no longer part of the RMS revenue.

    Good point. Only bad fans go to the RMS. That's my new stance.

    Shame on you guys! Boo! Boooooo!

    The RMS has been included in the student sports pass for at least three years.

    Csu home games are free to students so that is the case this year.

    Yeah but when I was there a couple years ago the pricing was different, it said cu sports pass, csu ticket and basketball pass as three different charges and the csu game was an extra 50 bucks I believe that couldn't be excluded from the purchase:
