If the NCAA held the play-in game anywhere else, they might have 1000 people in attendance. At UD, they bring over 8,000 between the 64th and the 65th seed.
Because it’s a sixÂ dollar ticket, my friend and client, Bill Daniels of Dayton’s Original Pizza Factory, gets a bunch of guys to go watch the game (over 400 this year).
No one cares who wins- in fact, we have signs we use each year- Go 64th Seed, Go 65th Seed.
So, it’s really too bad, that UD decides to gouge the fans with a $7 dollar parking fee. Anyone complaining about the parking at the Nutter Center? I’ve never been charged more than $5.
Even the lots outside the Dragons games- don’t charge more than $5.
And once you get in the door- you still have to pay top dollar for soda, popcorn and hot dogs.
Shame on UD.
