Like many of you, I frequent the Pitt athletics official page. Most of the time, I'm digging for info on the non-revenue sports since it's the best source for that kind of info. But my most recent visit piqued my interest while trying to come up with a poll of the week.
Front and center of the site, smack dab in the middle of basketball season were three links - one a video and two regarding the purchase and renewal of football tickets.
Now, you obviously can't fault the athletics department for selling tickets right now - particularly with optimism at a peak regarding the recent hire of Pat Narduzzi. But while the Narduzzi hire has been widely praised (and for good reason), I'm curious to know if that is affecting ticket sales right now.
I don't know what the projections are right now based on what they've sold and the renewal rates. But I'm curious to what our readers are thinking.
Are you any more (or less) likely to purchase football tickets this year based on the energy surrounding the program right now? Vote in the poll and explain in the comments section below.
