    One of my friends got charged like this for opening day of baseball. Just a ridiculous operation.

    It’s curious to me when our fans say, “yeah but Boone only has a population of 20k, there’s nothing else to do there except App games.” To me a town of 20k that fills a 30k seat stadium is amazing. That would be like Cajun Field selling a 250k seat stadium out.

    Boone has plenty of other things to do besides App, I’ve snow skied there.

    Get students to the game, it should be first and last on any list of how to improve attendance.

    The point in that, is it is much easier to get all your students to go to a game on Saturday in a college town with population of 20k…bc that’s where most people are going. So as a student you are “trained” to go to the game for lack of a better word. Then when you graduate and move, you still are “trained” on where to be on Saturday’s in the fall. That, along with 22 conference championships and only 5 losing seasons since 1980 gets you sellouts on Saturday in a town of 20k people. I don’t think people mean literally there is nothing else to do, it just means on Saturday’s in Boone, there is really only one thing to do.

    Well when you hire idiots, you get idiots running your operation.

    Horrible. Are we sure our Hospitality program isnt just a made-up myth? So many missed opportunities to get students actual service experience and they hire idiots instead.

"Last one, don't forget to turn out the lights" was a phrase I heard the night before our first bowl game. Many of you basically told new fans that they weren't welcome in the club. It's not fair to us loyal fans. Want to know what I really think? Some of you don't want a solution. You want to continue to call people that don't come to games out and say Lafayette only supports across the basin. You enjoy your tailgating spot, with your tickets and your conveniences, and don't want them threatened.

    We had people begging to be supporters and you told them no thank you....
    Ehhh this is quite a stretch.

    You’re known here for being a diehard baseball poster.
    Let me go offer Maggard $20k for your baseball box and let’s see how you react.

    That’s it, Bid a Box . . . Wildest marketing feature ever attempted . . . Then let the owner have last look . . . Don’t we keep trying to dig out of the same pockets over and over and over again here?

    Doesn’t mean he gives it away, just meant he certainly isn’t complaining about not having a free place to park.

    It wasnt tongue in cheek.

    It sounds like a matter of principle for the man.
