II.         Approval of Minutes

Mr. Deutsch made a motion, which Prof. Stenger seconded to approve the minutes of October 8, 2004. 
III.       Action Item:  Approval of Football Season Ticket Prices for 2005                           

Mr. Miller explained that planning for the 2005-06 budget has begun.  The season football ticket pricing is a revenue consideration that precedes:  (1) budget planning, and (2) football marketing.  He also noted that Athletics has maintained ticket pricing for students during the past four years.  The proposed pricing structure is reasonable when measured against comparable and regional programs, including those of the Big East.  The marketing staff will develop Group Packages and Special Promotions for all games where visiting tickets are surplus.  Prof. Kemelgor complimented the Athletics staff involved for recommending reasonable pricing strategies.  Prof. Stenger made a motion, which Prof. Kemelgor seconded, to approve the

Athletic Director’s recommendation that the Board of Directors approve for Football a season ticket package for 2005 as outlined below.
