Another change is that ticket prices will be lower, as they try to encourage the fans to come and support the team.
"We want to get the community and the student body excited about NAU basketball, making the Walkup Skydome a fun place to watch a game and a great home-court advantage," Murphy said.It's a smart move. Maybe they take a little budget hit, but they need to get the excitement back in the program, which will pay long-term dividends. One of the ways to do that is to get more fans in the seats, which could happen with lower ticket prices. Maybe it won't make a big difference, but anything will help.
I will go on record as saying that new head coach Jack Murphy is going to do some very good things in Flagstaff, and hopefully getting more fans in the seats will provide a nice boost in his first season.
