VT has had the highest football ticket price in the conference for...


...a very long time. Then we started charging for the privilege to purchase tickets. The reason Whit does that is because the demand is there. That's "big time" college football, especially for a school with a stadium that only seats 67K.

Demand might have dipped during our recent "lean" years, but Coach Fuente is correcting that by putting an exciting team on the field.

If you want to see a contrast between a big time college football program, and a big time "poser," just look at Miami. All the talent in the world, but a "zero" fan base. Their season, not individual game, but season ticket price is $99. It's been that cheap since I lived there around the turn of the century. That cheap, and they still can't get more than 5K fans into the stadium. A lot of FSU fans buy Miami season tickets on years when they play at Miami, then toss the rest of the tickets. (They would sell them, but they are worthless.)
