How Michigan's Greed Alienated Fans
This is a cautionary tale for all schools including USC. This UM AD has a lot in common with Buster. Hopefully with Ray at the helm we can avoid this outcome.
This spring, the Michigan athletic department admitted what many had long suspected: Student football ticket sales are down, way down, from about 21,000 in 2012 to a projected 13,000-14,000 this season.
The department has blamed cell phones, high-definition TV and student apathy sweeping the nation. All real problems, to be sure, but they don't explain how Michigan alienated 40 percent of its students in just two years -- and their parents, too.
How did Michigan do it? By forgetting why we love college football.
