WAITING IN VAIN

When Athletic Director Bill
Martin announced that patrons
would see a drop in football sea-
son ticket prices this year, he cited
the tough economy as the reason.
However, more goes into deter-
mining season ticket prices than
just the economic climate.
Associate Athletic Director for
TicketingandMarketing,MartyBod-
nar, said athletic department officials
meet every year to weigh various fac-
tors in orderto come up with the right
price for seasontickets.
"Before the season starts for
the respective sports we just kind
of huddle up amongst ourselves
internally," he said. "We consider
anticipated demand, the past his-
tory of the ticket prices, what our
peers or competitors charge, spe-
cifically the Big Ten, the state of
the economy and the state of the
program that we're making the

decision for."
