For the second straight season, Mississippi State has broken its sales record. Well, that’s assuming State sells out of its student tickets, and officials expect that to happen at some point today. Do that, and the last reliable season ticket sales number is the one athletic director Scott Stricklin tweeted on Friday: 42,219.
I write all that to bring your attention to a blog entry I did a few Fridays ago comparing historical season ticket sales data. CLICK HERE to read it. The enclosed chart, based on data given to The Clarion-Ledger by Mississippi State, has a pretty solid revelation: At 42,219, State is just a few hundred tickets away from doubling its sales from just 13 years prior.
