    Here's a legitimate question: How much will tomorrow's attendance be boosted by the 2 giveaway's to football season ticket holders?
    Review:
    e-mail of a couple of weeks ago allowing season ticket holders to pick 2 tix to 1 of 6 events-2 men's hoops games, 2 women's hoop games, 2 men's hockey games (of which the Yale game was 1-Merrimack was the other)
    reward to $ 100.00 down payment on next season's football season ticket renewal
    One could theoretically get 4 free tickets to tomorrow's game
    I printed out 2 from the down payment promotion (can't go as I have to work tomorrow-gave them to members of my tailgate crew-will be used) The game I chose from the season ticket reward promotion was the Merrimack game on Feb. 4th.-WILL attend.
    Looks like tomorrow should break UConn's home game attendance record if ticket availability is any indication

    Considering last season's football attendance, I would estimate at about 300 tickets haha

    Tickets are goin quick. Just put my football ST deposit down and the last 2 rows of upper bowl are pretty much all that's left.

    They just opened the 1st 5 rows of the lower 200's on the sides.

    Earlier in the week, they were at 5,000 tickets accounted for. Now, maybe you really think they sold 4,000 tickets in 48 hours, but chances are...its the giveaways.

    He could play. I'm sure he'll want to. Cav will have to make the call

    He played what...
    Monday, weds, and last night.
    Day off today

    Like someone said earlier, not all shifts and maybe just on the PP.

    Then, he'll have 4 full days before Maine game @ BPT

    I would like to see him on sat, but I understand and do want a healthy rage for the rest of yr.

    He won't practice today most likely and I'd bet he's a game time decision. Yale is also a bad team, UConn should be able to win the game even if he doesn't play. Really not worth risking an injury against a bad opponent when he's played 150 minutes of hockey in the past 48 hours.

    UConn's Tage Thompson, fresh off gold for Team USA at WJC, will be in the lineup against Yale Saturday, according to coach Mike Cavanaugh.

    That's why I feel like this game is so important....we need to dominate Connecticut hockey. I realize we have a ways to go when it comes to Quinnipiac, but I feel like we'll get there pretty soon. Right now, they seem to have our number.

    Not easy when you gotta drive an hour each way during clean days.

    Should have been pushed back to tomorrow. It would have been the most attended game of the year but now it will not be. This program cannot catch a break when it comes to growing a following for home games. My guess is less than 4000.

    It will be interesting to see the announced attendance figure versus reality.

    It will be tickets distributed like nearly all sports levels these days. No pep band I guess as they are selling their seats online(unless they move behind net as students are on break)

    Already downtown. Been at teds for awhile and I can tell people are downtown, but haven't bar hopped around yet.

    My guess... 8k distributed, 6-7k will show up.

    It really bums me out that these games are never on TV. NESN used to show a fair amount of HE games.
