C’mon, coach. This isn’t an ad hominem attack. It’s a suggestion. If Penn State wants season ticket holders outside of Centre County, then they had damned well better start looking for ways to make it easier for us to do so.If you are so smart, explain the benefit to us for the hotels to lower their prices when they are currently full. What is the cost/benefit here for them? Shaner, The Scholar Group and others have no reason to accept such a partnership. Especially now that the Scholar Group has eaten much of their competition with ownership of the Penn Stater, the Inn, the Residence Inn and the Courtyard and of course the converted Glenland building into the Scholar. Strategic partnerships only work when there is benefit on both sides. The athletic department attempts a similar partnership to house student athletes parents at a reduced cost. That was a complete bust as there were no takers.
And I would absolutely welcome the opportunity to help Penn State explore this strategy. They know how to contact me.
