It looks like they are doing the lottery ticket special again this year for the championship game. Turn in a losing ticket in exchange for free admission. Reference toward end of article...

There has been a lot of talk of the zips moving down to 1-AA, but I really have no interest in 1-AA ball. Given the play of football and basketball, maybe we are in over our heads in Division 1 athletics. It costs far too much money to compete at this level, and Akron really needs to focus on becoming Northeastern Ohio's premier research University. You cannot do that pouring millions into football and basketball.
We have a quality athletic conference right here in our backyard, the Ohio Athletic Conference. Mount Union has really set the standard for the conference, and it might be the best interest of the University to be associated with it. I am really impressed by the game day atmospheres at these schools. They might not be "big time" but the students really get behind their teams, and it is much more feasible to compete for national championships. Lets be honest, nobody cares about soccer. Division III football is bigger than soccer, and I can see us running the table in the OAC conference with our facilities and advantage in budget. We'll have natural rivals and travel costs will be minimal.
We need to join the OAC conference.

Game over for the MAC.....
19 Mar 2011
Having attended the tournament last weekend, something I am noticing is that the MAC tournament seems to be losing its appeal and I don't know why given the brand of basketball that is played there year in and year out. How come Akron/Can't draw 9k fans in the MAC championship game for the dance? Not to mention you practically get those tickets for a buck if you take advantage of the promotion. Maybe its just me but I always though the basketball games were the most exciting athletic events to go to when I was a student just because of how close you are to the action. Our football team can get 15k to attend a meaningless bowl game in Detroit and we can get 1000 or so students to freeze at a soccer game but we can't get people to a game against our archrival for a dance ticket? If I were a Can't fan I would really be perplexed given their recent success in hoops starting with the elite 8. We have the best coach in the MAC. Maybe it's just me but it seems like our support in Cleveland is getting weaker and weaker.
