The slate opponents in the post-Huggins era has been pretty pathetic outside of conference play, with the notable exception of the shootout, and attendance has suffered accordingly. Assuming that the shootout is not included in the season ticket package, which isn't a leap considering the Big-East vs. SEC games played at US Bank Arena haven't been included, the value of the package is even further diluted...
Sales haven't been because of the competition post Huggins, it has been because Huggins isn't there anymore and when he left and went through the debacle that he did, he took a lot of fans with him and they never came back.
