    The point of most of my posts about APP State and the off the field success they've had with issues that continue to plague us, is can we start stealing ideas, give them a call, find out why and how they are so successful...yes, we've not ever won and NC...we're not isolated, all the excuses I've read on this board (and some with good reason). Find out what is making them so successful off the field, and with thier football scheduling. I've stolen ideas my whole professional career, and then made them my own to fit whatever narrative that was needed. Can we do the same...And Troy too, they've sold 10,000 season tickets as well...

    Meanwhile high quality wins in that timeframe:
    UAB (longest home winning streak at the time.)
    App. St. (3 times)
    Liberty (NFL QB1)
    Marshall
    Something to note, beating FSU this year would move the needle with local casual fans more than the Iowa St game did. Think about why and then leverage that into marketing to those fans.

    im with you and ill say what i have said for 30 years. you cant just find anyone to fill your stadium and then wonder why the atmosphere is dead. you need to go out and find football fans. if you cant find them you need to educate them on the game and give them a reason to come back

    goes to show how ignorant the fans are if thats the case. Iowa st was a game away from being in the playoffs that year. they were 3 points from being big 12 champs. their qb was in the heisman running. Fl st has been bad for years

    No argument here, but you don't sell potential customers by calling them stupid...

    its not about intelligence. its about being actual football fans. shows the ignorance of football fans in this area. it is not a good or bad thing. it just is. you have to consider that when doing your outreach if you are trying to recruit casuals to support the cajuns

    Dude, don't fool yourself, there is as big a percentage of purple and gold fans that lack specific football knowledge as there are Cajun Fans. It's just part of a bigger pool.

    You can not like this, but it's true.

    Fla State won a national championship recently and has won 3 total. People know who they are and if we can beat them, it's going to be noticed, especially by the common fan.

    There you go. Perception is 99% of the game.
