As bowl game approaches, the heat is on UVa. to sell seats
School will have to cover cost if it can’t sell its allotment of 18,000 tickets
With the Cavs still seeking to show themselves as a dominant power, selling the 18,000-seat allotment would send a message when selections are made in future years.
The Cavaliers came up short at the 2007 Gator Bowl, but appear to be on their way to hitting the quota in Atlanta, a city where they enjoy a substantial alumni base.
It’s a number that won’t impact the game, but is nonetheless being watched closely by the U.Va. administration.
“I think it does establish that we have a fan base that is supportive of the program,” Littlepage said. “It gets everybody back in line in terms of support for the program, and I think a lot of that has to do with how our fans feel about Mike in particular as our head coach. I think fans have rallied around this program.”
Note: When Danny Rocco was hired as the new coach at Richmond, it set up an intriguing matchup to open the 2012 season against the Cavaliers, who will likely be led by quarterback Michael Rocco, his nephew. The younger Rocco laughed when asked about the matchup during a bowl game promotional event.
“It will be crazy,” he said. “I’m sure everybody will be asking about it all week.”
He said that he had never faced his uncle at any point during his football career.
