    Incarnate Word canceled/ Wisconsin game moved to Uni Stadium!!!

    First Post Banner
    On Sept 8th, at least according to UNM HR in an email sent out yesterday:
    ---------------------------------


    DID YOU KNOW…
    One of the many perks of working at UNM is that you may be eligible to purchase Lobo Men’s Basketball season tickets at a 50% discount?*

    Men’s Basketball
    Season tickets are now on sale! Your discounted season tickets start at just $99.50 per seat(marked down from $199) and guarantee you the same seats for all regular season home games in Dreamstyle Arena including matchups with Colorado, UTEP, and New Mexico State! Last season's exciting campaign ended in the Mountain West title game under first-year Head Coach Paul Weir and the upcoming season looks to be just as entertaining and action-packed. The men’s basketball season begins in November.

    Women’s Basketball & Football
    Football season tickets are now on sale and women’s basketball season tickets are coming soon. You are eligible to purchase season tickets for either of these at 50% off as well.

    Football season begins at home with Wisconsin Sept. 8.

    Get Your Tickets
    To order your season tickets or for more information please call 505-925-5626 or visit the Lobo Ticket Office in Dreamstyle Arena Mon-Fri, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., or the UNM Bookstore Tue-Fri, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

    #GoLobos!

    *Limit 2 adult season tickets per benefits-eligible faculty or staff member (.5 FTE or greater). Restrictions apply. In order to receive the reduced price you must be verified as eligible for the discount. Please call to confirm your eligibility. This is a taxable benefit.

    So instead of collecting a milion dollars, UNM will now be paying out a bucket of money to Wisconson? Smart move. that should help alleviate the deficit.

    Was that some kind of typo?
    My position as a moderator adds no validity to my opinions. I am a fan just like you and as such when I express a view it represents me and me alone and carries no more weight than any other fan other than the fact that I am always right. (Like everyone else.)

    They say the home season starts with Wisconsin September 8th. Since I'm planning my trip to Wisconsin, this would be a major development....

    By having a lot of vacancies in the SID office and people trying to juggle far too many sports each. Overwork people for months on end and mistakes happen.

    It didn't come from SID but from HR where they have almost 200 employees Uni wide.

    No idea why that would come from HR. Seems seriously out of their lane.

    The only way something like this would happen is if UNM agreed to a 2 for 1 or even a 3 for 1.

    Just show up for the 1st game and those thereafter - at this point that is all that really counts. Mistakes happen but so does a fan base rallying around its program - lets do it.

    Mmmm, because any discounts not available to the public are considered a benefit and they are required, by law, to report to IRS.

    HR handles sending out the e-mail, but certainly should not be creating the content as far as the sports schedule, etc. That should have been a straight cut & paste from somewhere in the athletic department. The sports substance is way outside HR's lane.

    The schedule on go lobos stays the same. Incarnate word at Uni stadium 09/01. Wiscy at Madison, 09/08. Is this all a bad joke??

    Did you contact them and request/offer to review for accuracy any future similar heavily athletic department centered distributions before publication? They should have asked for review but perhaps offering would be a polite way to coach them into how to operate effectively. The one good side of it is, they were trying to get more seats sold. Maybe the AD dept could work with the HR dept and its effort to sell more tickets inside UNM. Isn't that something that is highly needed, more revenue.

    Don't be ridiculous ,the schedule has not changed. Also the more tickets that are sold,helps the entire UNM sports programs. People don't get that around here. Great article last week on team speed by the Journal. We need more articles on Lobo Football like that from the media and journal. GO LOBOS!

    The HR department is clearly trying to help get the word out about discounted season tickets to boost ticket sales and get more people to the games. Unfortunately, it wasn't proof read before going out, but I have to commend the HR department for trying to help UNM out of this budget mess as much as they can.

    Next time, they just need to have someone proof read it before sending it in a mass email to employees.

    unless you're sarcastic, i think you entirely misread my post. Perhaps you missed my words "any future".
