To be honest, I think it reeks of desperation.

He knows that if Bobo tanks this season that he's going to have a hard time convincing people to "lean in" for 2020. I'll be there again next season, but not for the opportunity to buy extra tickets to the CU game. Will I take advantage of that to make a bit of extra money? Sure. But that's not why I'll be there.

I'm surprised that they haven't used that game to lure in new season ticket holders. In 2016 they juiced season ticket sale at SLFHS by making a promise to 2016 season ticket holders that they would be at the head of the line for 2017 season tickets in the new stadium. Seems to me that they should be using that 2020 game to lure in new $ - buy your season tickets now to ensure that you have a spot for 2020. Instead it seems they are counting on us - people who already support the program with our $ - to buy what should be about 6000 seats (Parker's estimate).

But that's always been typical of the CSU AD - continue to ask for more from those already supporting, in lieu of bringing new blood and $ in. I thought that was changing in 2016 and 2017, but now they seem to be slipping into old habits. They are not doing what needs to be done to grow the base. There's been virtually no marketing in the Denver metro area this season. None. Perhaps that's their new strategy. Maybe it's all on social media. Who knows.
