OSU Lowers Prices for Season Tickets: Good Idea or Bad?

In an attempt to restore the rowdiness that once was in Gallagher Iba Arena, OSU brass announced that season ticket prices for basketball in the 300 level would drop from $575 per seat to $275 per seat beginning next season.

The Cowboys have played in front of small crowds for a while now. According to the Tulsa World, season ticket sales have dropped 24 percent since the 2006-2007 season.

But is this a good idea or a bad one?

I've always thought that season tickets for the 300 level were way overpriced, but in the back of my mind I attributed it to the price you have to pay to see a quality basketball program. Tickets to truly elite basketball programs are hard to come by.

Perhaps this is a good move to get the masses interested in OSU basketball again. $275 for a season ticket is a steal in my book - but I remember they days of the old GIA when it was a privelage to have season tickets.

What do you think?
