Recession's been going on for several years now. This year's ticket sales are the worst numbers in years. I know more than a few folks who have dropped season tickets due to frustrations with SG's coaching, sorry. Glad you can laugh about it though.
Truth is, fellas, there are multiple reasons why season ticket sales and attendance are down. But FlossEm's right, HokieDan, a part of it is people being "done" with Seth -- his personality and/or his coaching style. That's not true of everyone -- witness the posts right here on this board that start with "I love Seth" -- but for some, they have chosen to quit supporting the program because they don't care for Seth's coaching style or Seth himself.
That reaction gets more pronounced with losing. I'm very worried about attendance, and I expect it to be a rough go of it.
