C’mon, people, it’s the start of the Paul Johnson era! Chan’s gone. “Dog” is a fading memory. It’s time to get pumped up.
Evidently, Yellow Jacket pulses aren’t racing.
… At the moment, McLaren’s most pressing concern is figuring out why some patrons didn’t renew for this season. After processing this year’s requests, he said the renewal rate for season tickets was 85 percent. It’s McLaren’s job to find out why.
In general, it’s not a good sign for season tickets to decrease in the year a team changes coaches, as Tech did by hiring Paul Johnson. McLaren said he is in the process of calling the fans who didn’t renew and he’s finding, more often than not, it was simply an oversight.
“A lot of them just forgot and say they still want their tickets,” said McLaren, who is Tech’s assistant athletics director for sales and business development. “People we’re talking with say they’re very excited about what Paul Johnson brings and saying, ‘Sign me up.’ We’re actually very pleased with the way things are going.”
The capacity of Bobby Dodd Stadium is 55,000, and McLaren estimates that Tech has sold around 26,000 season tickets.
I guess these folks were so excited about Tech football that they forgot to renew their season ticket orders. It kinda makes you wonder what they do about things they’re not excited about.
