The Minnesota Golden Gophers of the Big Ten Conference are having some trouble selling tickets to their games this year. Minnesota Head Coach Jerry Kill had a rough year last year and that definitely has something to do with it.
Student season-ticket sales have steadily dropped from 10,000 in the first year at the 50,800-seat TCF Bank Stadium, to 7,800 the second year to less than 6,000 last year. Now, with the team’s first home game on Sept. 8 less than a month away, roughly 2,000 student season tickets have been sold for the $288 million on-campus stadium that was seen as a key to rekindling passion and attendance after almost three decades in the Metrodome.
I would love to see the Gopher students show up in full force for games when some Big Ten schools come rolling into town.
