I’d really like to know the average income of each of the different fan bases. SC doesn’t have a ton of great high-paying firms within the state so there really isn’t a lot of room to keep moving prices up. I mean, there are a few but those are mostly in Greenville (predominantly Clemson territory) and in the low country— companies like Boeing.

Just a theory really, but would like to know the average income of the fan base and see if there’s any proof the fans can continue to absorb the cost of an arms race or if they’ll be priced out of the game day experience and/or ultimately just find more affordable hobbies.

For Clemson I believe it is 3 goats, 2 sheep and a cow.

With almost every game on tv the school is going to have to find ways to make the game experience better. Some schools are lowering concessions prices. What ideas do you have that could bring the fans in off their couch for EVERY GAME . (The teams, including one NFL team, are turning a larger profit after lowering the prices.

They will have to do something its a lot of fun to go to games, but for the average family its just getting to expensive.

if usc acted like they gave a crap about the actual fan experience i would love to go more often. in no particular order....

1. Pissing in a trough whilst in a sweathouse is unbelievable and
unacceptable in 2018.

2. Standing in line for almost a half a quarter to get a ridiculously priced
drink is also a joke. watching them use calculators is also maddening.

3. i invariably am the the guy who sits behind somebody who refuses to sit.
i know its his right but that doesnt mean i have to go to a game and never
see a play.
