According to various emails I’ve received from fans, Riley personally called them asking to renew season tickets. Then later I heard it was just a voice recording. Can people really not tell the difference between Riley and a recording? Hint: when you ask about Langsdorf’s kidney, he talks about the big showdown with Portland State.
Maybe it’s a mix of the two, and he’s calling select fans?
Either way, I never heard of this happening in the past. This all tells me ticket sales are down. Of course, OSU, in their infinite wisdom, choose a marketing method from 1950 to drum up excitement. If this doesn’t work, look for personalized “hip hip hooray” messages from the OSU Pony Express passenger pigeon division.
