I just got my first season ticket renewal email for next fall. It's loaded with all kinds of things as incentives to renew early. I'm curious - do the incentives truly get anyone excited to renew early?

For me, while I know it's normal in other places, I'm not getting excited about renewing football tickets in early February during basketball season. I'm not even thinking about football season until I see the NFL draft on TV.

I'll probably wait until the last minute as usual - at least until there's a schedule.

Just saw this on Twitter:

"Saturday's at Peden"

This is essentially the schedule

09/05 - NC Central
09/12 - at Boston College
09/19 - Marshall
09/26 - at Texas State

vs Akron
vs Buffalo
vs BG
vs EMU
at Miami
at Kent
at CMU
at Toledo

And based off past history ... I'm guessing it'll shape up something like this

09/05 - NC Central
09/12 - at Boston College
09/19 - Marshall
09/26 - at Texas State
10/3 - at Kent
10/10 - BG - HOMECOMING
10/17 - EMU
10/24 - at CMU
11/4 - Buffalo
11/11 - at Toledo
11/19 - at Miami
11/27 - Akron

And in regards to the $80 per seat for Saturday home games ... you're better off just paying the $140 season tickets for four GA seats. Much cheaper, even if you only go to the Saturday games.

Also seen in the OBC email re: renewals:

"Football season ticket holders also receive some great benefits this season, including $10 worth of Peden Cash that can be used at the concession stands inside Peden Stadium, the ability to purchase additional tickets for the football game against Marshall at a discounted rate"....

I envision this as a way that Marshall can just buy half the stadium. Am I missing something?

No, I believe it was done as a personal favor to yours truly and Jeff McKinney so that we can each buy cheap tickets for our 100 closest friends in Huntington.

Since you're good at getting personal favors from inside the AD's office, I have some ideas....

If they enticed with actual rewards, I would renew early. Contests/drawings are not something that motivate me...so I'll probably wait until the end of the renewal period.

I renewed early because of the incentives. I don't think they are particularly good but I'd rather have them than not.

^^^^^ That's fair. They don't entice me all that much. I already buy basketball tickets, so that's not useful to me. I don't care about signed stuff, and I don't recall what else is in the list.

What would entice me is the ability to buy two GA tickets, because I like wandering or sitting on the hill during a game, combined with the option to buy two parking passes, and not have to buy 6 tickets to get two parking passes. I've never understood why they can't offer the option of extra parking passes without buying more tickets, or more OBC donations.

Four season volleyball tickets and $10 in Peden cash which can be redeemed for a beer and also waiving the $15 "convenience" fee make it worth it.

If I lived in, or much nearer to Athens, that would be interesting.

Last year I renewed early. Have to wait and see what more they do to the 110 before I renew this year.
