TICKET TROUBLE: Lewis writes UH's "shortfall in ticket revenue" from home football games could hit nearly $1M and "force department-wide cutbacks in athletics." The athletic department, with a six-game home schedule, "had projected" $4.33M in football ticket revenues this year. But UH officials said that with sales in on four games and "only the walk-up sales for two games remaining," the school is at $3.13M and "unlikely to top" $3.4M. UH AD Ben Jay said, "Without those operating funds, I'm scared about what our year-end is going to look like." UH had "expected to easily exceed last year's total" of $3.32M and "reach the five-year average" of $4.2M (HONOLULU STAR-ADVERTISER, 11/5).
