My own perception (not backed up by ANY data) is that ticket sales tend to respond to longer term trends than just one winning season. Have 5 or 6 winning seasons in a row with 2 or 3 of those being stellar, and fans will flock to your banner. Have one good year, and you will see a small uptick, but no one trusts a one year aberration. It is a winning tradition that fans will support. It will take Tulane or Rice quite a long time to build ticket sales, for example, because both programs have the perception of being "losers". Under CGC, we run the risk of falling into that category as well.What’s weird, but not weird, is how having a good season does not mean your attendance is good that season. Rather, there is a lag time, usually the season after your best season is the one that has higher attendance.
So, if that is true, it appears that one/loss records in Tech’s current season is the best predictor for ticket sales the following season.
