    Not enough nbc money in the world - IMO - to bail the domers out. Let them join for real or, let them sit this season out.

    Looking forward (I hope) to see TBA dates & times. Also whether we are part of the drawl for our season tickets???? It’s going to be interesting to see how they handle ticket distribution.

    I'm not too disappointed that we don't get Clemson this year. As good a year as we had and as good as recruiting is this year, we're still rebuilding, especially on defense.

    Well my tickets are paid for so there is that. I’m wondering if UofL is awaiting direction from the ACC on how many fans will be allowed (on a percentage basis) in the stands, if any. If the ACC gives a percentage then how will our tickets be distributed OR will we be assigned certain games that we can attend. And how about TV rights and which games will be shown on ESPN. In a discussion with a friend yesterday he suggested that we might be watching games on Thursday, Friday AND Saturday this coming season - TV money baby. He just might be right especially if “tailgating” is limited on university property. Also, will the cayuts become the “coward cayuts” or will there be a game on the Saturday of Thanksgiving week. We’ll just have to wait for the $ec to actually make a decision on that. So many questions and so few answers and we’ll continue to wait . . . .

    Probably not a huge deal, but I wonder how much game prep and film the coaches watched of NCST, as they planned for the opener. Regarding ND in all of this, I'm fine with it. Why not allow their inclusion during these uncertain times? The conference helps them out, they share TV revenue, it's a win/win.

    UNC announced no season tickets and we are looking at 15000 maybe 25000 admittance to maintain social distancing (whatever the CDC recommendation at the time). Rams club members and team family members given priority when assigning seats and purchasing tickets. Doubt any tickets will made available to the general public.

    Yeah PHCARD I assume (yes, I know about assuming) that we’ll be in the 25K range allowed in. My question is how will the 25K, or so, be chosen? All of this allows the fact that we just might be playing with NO fans, i.e., MLB games. This might call for a renegotiating of TV contracts, but WTH do I know.

    There are so many questions. Do they just go by CAF points and only those at the top get tickets for all games? Or do they let all season ticket holders attend at least some of the games? I assume there will be no tickets for visiting fans so I’ll get back the money I paid for Clemson and Virginia tickets.
    I’ve already paid for my two season tickets and I don’t have a ton of CAF points because I don’t have men’s basketball tickets. I’ll be content with whatever UofL decides. I know they have to make some tough economic choices and they have to keep those who pay most of the bills happy.

    If we go by Lou City's model, we are looking at 30%.

    This would be about 19,500 seats. Or about 9,750 pairs of tickets.

    On the other board, one poster wrote that their CAF rep. told them that they'll be using points for ticket selection.

    I have less than a 100. I doubt I'll make the cut.

    But most likely there will be hundreds of folks in that high CAF point group who will decline tickets this year due to uncertainty. ?????

    If I knew how many season tickets we sold last season, we could back out some numbers.

    My season tickets are on the flight deck and most games you are social distancing up there anyway so it shouldn't be a problem.

    Lou FC fans have done a great job meeting g the mask/distancing requirements. I must say I don’t have great faith that all of our fans base will adhere to the requirements. Hope I’m wrong.

    ND fans in the stand on game day will come from season ticket holders with tenure. They haven't announced a number yet but it sounds like maybe 5 to 10 thousand. Nothing was said about fans of the opponents yet. This virus really sucks!

    Same here. Just moved from Section 10 to Section 8 this off season. Doubt us poors in the Flight Deck have much in the way of CAF points, so I’m wondering if they will choose fans by ticket longevity or something similar. I have had FD tickets since they built it. Hoping that helps me out. Surely, lower stadium fans with higher CAF points won’t be offered FD tickets once lower level seating runs out.

    If I am not mistaken, the amount tickets are based upon capacity first, then social distancing determines if you have the ability to increase or decrease the number of tickets.

    So if there are only so many tickets, I don't think it will matter much where they are at.

    I was thinking the same thing about just spreading out all of the season ticket holders across the lower bowl, UPS FD, B&W, Adidas, and the PNC
    sections which they already where seating.

    It wasn't until I read what UNC, Georgia, FL St, & Ohio St were doing that I realized a lot of us will be watching from home this Fall.

    So, lets say you have lower bowl seats maybe 25 yd line 12-15 rows up that you’ve paid $60 for.

    Then you get notified you’re “in” but now you’re in the flight deck $10 seats due to distancing.

    How’s that going to sit with people? I would not be happy and I don’t think many would.

    You have to wonder, would UL be better to PO everybody, play with no fans, and hope we all come back next year...or let a few in this year and PO 75% and hope most of them come back after being dissed?

    Not to mention if/when a bunch of social “causes” get force fed to people looking for entertainment

    Tough call. Tough times.

    With no end in sight.

    You do realize the ACC didn’t bail ND out?
    The ND AD straight up said they had dozens of calls from other ADs offering to play ND.
    Fans and much of the media don’t understand what AD’s do, that’s why they are not ADs.
    Multiple reports are out explaining how immediately after the announcement the Disney owner networks started fighting (ABC/ESPN/ACC Network) to telecast the ND/ACC games and the +1 model was ND’s request. Last year ND played one game on the ACC network, against Duke, and it was the highest rated game for them and Duke’s only sellout.
    The ACC commissioner and ADs aren’t stupid. ND helps the ACC as a conference that has been seen as Clemson and 13 other teams recently. Watch how many national games they will have now and how much attention the conference gets.
