Years? 5 or 6 years ago you could show up and sit in the first 10 rows. Winning comes at a price.

Its all supply and demand for a high level product. I would believe that the research has been done by some pretty good numbers guys to see what the USC market could take. Time will tell how successful it is. Competing with the elites on a regular basis takes money.

So it's not about the revenue, only getting more money from rich donors?

We don't make it to the NCAAT without A'ja last year and now she's gone.

We may struggle early on next season and then get it figured out in February and March. Or not.

Getting affordable premium seats on game days may not necessarily be a problem. I think that is a realistic expectation, but I hope not.

Jacking up the premium seats is something that's logical. If the plan was to get it to that price you have two choices, do it all at once or phase it in year after year on a 5 or so year plan. The 5 year plan is a less dramatic increase but people will complain every single year about each hike, this way the increase is dramatic but the complaints only go on for 1 year. I'd probably have made the same decision if the plan was to increase prices dramatically for a few rows, I'd rather listen to 1 year of complaints than multiple years.

Catering to big donors doesn't does help raise revenue or help retain coaches? WHAT?!!! Do people even read what they type before they press send? YES PLEASE , cater to the big donors! Do that! 1000% for that. You get WAY more money by keeping the biggest donors happy than just raising seat prices across the board. Keep the donors happy keep the former USC athletes and coaches happy. That is a recipe for success. I sympathize for those not getting the seats they want because of this, but not too much. I support this move.
