Season Ticket Prices and Minimum Donations at FBS Schools

Rivals has collected football season ticket prices and minimum donations at the 120 FBS schools for the 2010 season.  The donations work like NFL personal seat licenses.  Programs realize there is "money on the table" since some fans place a higher value on attendance at home games than what it costs to get season tickets.  So schools charge a fee to capture some of that value in order to generate maximum revenue. There's not a lot of surprising things in there, at least to this economist.  Ohio State tops the list with a minimum donation of $1,500 - you could […]

You vill NOT exercise!

(Crossposted at SCSU Scholars) I had breakfast this morning, as I do many mornings, with some people associated with our university's athletics department. This morning we were talking about the voluntary training sessions for our football players. We are a D-II program (a pretty good one, though last week's loss at Omaha hurt our chances for the playoffs), and we're amazed by the size of our players. One fellow said that this was because of year-round conditioning programs, all of which are voluntary. Quarterbacks organize skill player sessions to catch footballs and run routes in the spring; lifting and running […]

Head Shots: Part of the Game?

The anticipated move by the NFL to use suspensions to penalize (some)  and deter "head shots" to players has already generated substantial feedback.  On ESPN Monday Night Steve Young, Trent Dilfer, and Matt Millen seemed ready to deliver a head shot to Roger Goodell for consideration of such a thing.  Their reasoning -- football is a "violent game," "your taking away the physicality," "this is what fans want to see."  The banality of their comments eerily remind me of scenes from Rollerball (for those alive in the 70s) or Running Man (8os) and at cross purposes with the kind of […]

It's Still Good to Be the Cupcake

I've written before on cupcakes in college football (see here as well). You know the cupcake. The team expected to lay down in front of your superior squad in exchange for a sexy payout. The team that allows you to tailgate without much gnashing of teeth. The team that allows you to bring your kids to a game and allow let them be free range kids without all the worry. You won't miss a thing while you're spending time parenting. Why is it good to be the cupcake? Because they get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to come to […]
