That one was a consideration as well
But I thought the wind was already out of the sails at that point after the 5-0 start, and the team did end up getting to the bowl game eventually.
People also forget the 2007 Wake Forest game, where maybe 6,000 fans showed to a game that would have made Vandy bowl eligible. Looking back, though, that Wake team was actually a decent 8-4 on the season.

Young Alumni Ticket Package
@Doresontheplains this is a good point. In the early years after graduation in an effort to engage Alumni, Vandy offered discounted season tickets for Football Games. Several classmates of mine took advantage of this program, not to go to games, but rather to flip their tickets and make an easy $2k during the football season selling to opposing fans. There should certainly be ways to avoid this, but an example of a decent idea that later gets exploited.
