Quick Post: Filling up the Keg

For the first time this fall, the CU athletic department let leak sell-through numbers on season tickets for the upcoming season.  As expected, numbers are up. Way up.

To date, the Buffs have already sold over 5,000 season tickets, easily beating last years record of 3,941 with three weeks still to go before opening night.   As the department was quick to point out, adding in the 2,500 student packages sold earlier this fall, and the department is almost at last year's attendance average (7,804) in season ticket holders alone.

I can't help but wonder about what the Buffs can average this year? 9k? 10k?

The AD does a great job using the honorable metric of actual "through-the-turnstile" attendance, rather than the shady "tickets sold" metric, so late December dates with Northern Arizona and Hartford could stunt the final average, but I'm officially setting the goal at 9,500+ for the season.

If you haven't yet done so, you can buy into the defending Pac-12 champions by purchasing season tickets here.
