The discussion wasn't about what students could afford, or whether you feel bad for students having to pay so much for school, the discussion was about the average price of football tickets at RES and LES.

Thanks for admitting that Utah students pay less half what BYU students pay for football tickets.

BYU ROC pass = $110 to $180
Utah MUSS pass = $50


btw, you left out one huge factor in the cost of an education at BYU and Utah, housing.

90% of Utah students are from Utah and the majority commute to school.
66% of BYU students are from out of state and have to pay room and board.

The simple truth is if the Utah administration thought they could fill a 65,000 seat stadium on a regular basis, RES would have been expanded a long time ago.

Chris Hill is justifiably reluctant to risk spending millions to expand RES, only to see RES become like the HC was for many years, a vast sea of empty red chairs.

@ Uteanymous

I don't disagree with anything you said. Until very recently, 45,000 was perfect for Utah. Interest has definitely increased since joining the PAC-12, and I think a stadium between 55-58K would be perfect. I don't think Chris Hill is reluctant to expand RES. I just think he recognized that investing in Utah's other athletic programs and facilities was more pressing that expanding the stadium.
