Final count - how many home games did you go to?

Postby skyscraper » Fri Mar 08, 2019 12:46 pm

I was one of the people who passed on the re-seat and gave up my season tickets that I'd had since the Doh years. I went back and looked at how many games I went to this season.
Out of the 18 home games, I made it to 7 -- NW St, Southern MIss, Lipscomb, TCU, Houston, USF, Wichita State.
Next season I expect it to be even fewer, with no signs that Jank will be removed as coach.
For perspective, since Moody re-opened I had missed five games total (several only bc I was traveling for work).
Curious for the others on the board -- season ticket holder or not, how many games you made it to Moody this season.
(There's a poll on desktop version you can vote in as well as writing out any details in a post)

I can't even remember honestly. They were so unmemorable. Maybe 7-8 also. I would have a made a few more but things got in the way.

That being said, I used to be so disappointed when missing a game.... Now I honestly don't care I couldn't make at least half the home games this year. Such a shame. SMU really can't get out of its own way and loves to destroy anything fun.

We moved to the Metroplex (used loosely, as we really live in Bridgeport) eight years ago, the first seven, was a season ticket holder and I think I missed 3 games total in those years. I did not attend a single game this year, due to the re-seat. I only attended 1 fball game, also dropped season fball tickets, due to the re-seat.

I only went to the TCU game and it was incredibly boring. I also had nightmares of the "shake moody" chant SMU tried to force on us

Did not make one game. Not even worth the Stub Hub price.

I live in Fort Worth and attended 10 games. My teenage boys and I always enjoy the games. Win or lose we support the Ponies.

I bought the reseat hype, paid $3000 more to upgrade and attended fewer games.
Like others, I would move mountains to get to Moody during the LB and Semi/Sterling days. This year? I was like, “what’s the point?” Go home, throw a chicken pot pie in the oven, watch SMU on espn. If it’s not competitive, watch Narcos reruns on NetFlix.

Next year, I will go stub hub for 5-6 games and probably spend $500.00.

5-6 games on stubhub this past year cost between $50-$100 total - not $500. Should be even less next year unless they ink a deal with Kansas, Duke and UT.

I live on this East Coast and used to time business trips to coincide with home games. Not this year, and by February I stopped caring enough to watch on TV. My wife and I used to enjoy the defense and assist-focused offense of the LB years. This year it like watching a playground team.

New Yorker here so I don’t get to Moody often. But I’ve managed between 3-6 road games each year until last year.... when I caught two at Moody.

Zero anywhere this year. I blew off easy ones at UCONN and Temple. Just ain’t worth the trip.

Fire Jank.

Don't get to Dallas very often anymore but have made road trips to ECU, UCF and USF. Never considered a road trip this year.

Zero. Larry's out, I'm out.

Give me some coffee or donuts. Or recruit. Or tweet. Maybe I'll come back.
