    unless they start checking your ticket if you're found in a $45 seat mid-game.

    The vast majority of the green seats are taken by season-ticket holders. I know because I have bought single-game tickets and mini-plans for about 10 years now and it's almost impossible to get into the green seats for most games.

    I also will echo the thoughts of those who see this as Mason providing incentive for people to buy season tickets. I wasn't going to buy the whole season but may as well now to get in the green seats without having to spend $45 per ticket.

    Casual fans can sit in the yellow seats for $15 and save $10 per seat compared to last season.

    It's smart business when you really think about it.

    I live in Binghamton and ran into the Binghamton coach the other night. I wished him good luck on the upcoming season and mentioned I was a Mason fan. He responded "I think we play them on a Thursday." to which I replied "Yep - it probably won't be a big crowd." He said "I hope not." and said he was friends with Paulsen. Seemed like a nice guy. Back to the ticket issue - I agree that that night would be a good one for 2 for 1 deals.

    I hope so, I really do. I don't want to be right on this issue.

    I'm a season ticket holder with seats in the green area - I can't always make all the game so in years past - I put the seats up for sale on the GMU ticket exchange. They always sell - so there is a demand for GMU tickets in the green area - you get to set the price for your seats so this makes it more interesting for setting the price of a game.

    My impression is that they held back the green areas for season ticket holders only and did not sell them as individual tickets until the day of the game (if they even sold them at all). This should help us fill in the lower bowl better ... at least, if people are willing to pay.

    Love that they're offering a $15 tier. That was badly needed.

    Still waiting on NBC SportsNet Washington and Facebook Live. Have to think Learfield is pushing to get as many home games on as possible to help sales.

    VA Tech is definitely a return scrimmage as they were in Fairfax last year.

    So, when do you think we'll hear about the rest of our scheduled TV games on MASN or NBC Sports Washington?

    The Auburn game is on the SEC Network's On-Line site - hoping maybe MASN can grab that one.

    Mason at UMass Jan 3rd has been picked up by NESN+
    UMass at Mason Feb 24th is showing to be picked up by MASN
    Richmond at Mason March 3rd is also showing on MASN
