Thread: Poll for work

  1. #1

    UL Football Poll for work

    So I have 216 employees where I work. Of these 216 employees 147 of them are 28 or younger. Of those 147, 113 watch college football whether on tv or in a stadium. All of these guys are from the Lafayette Metro area. When asked what college football team they watch and pull for 108 said LSU while only 5 said the Cajuns. When asked why they watch the team they do 86% answered its what their parents watched so that's how they grew up.

    A separate section I had made was for the Cajuns. I asked do you watch Cajun football and only 5 replied yes. I asked if they knew the Cajuns were ranked in the TOP 25 the last 2 years and they replied with yeah but who did they play and no chance of making the National Championship.

    100% of the answers said that we play no one at home so why would they want to watch us play teams like ULM, Georgia State, etc. when they can watch LSU play teams like Alabama, Florida, Georgia, etc.

    My company which is in Lafayette gives LSU tickets away and not UL. The owners never attended LSU nor did their kids, more bandwagon riders. I did convince them to give UL tickets away hoping the employees will go to the games at UL and maybe start changing their minds.

    I dont know what else to do to get people to the d..n games.

    can we collaborate on your next survey? first things i would add is if they have kids. how old are their kids. annual income. their ideal price point for entertainment. have they ever heard of the yrcc. are they tailgating type folks. what is their residence proximity to cajunfield. and so on

    i would also have a section for sun belt questions. are they aware of app st and the other good programs in the conference. are they aware that cfb is giving the cajuns a road map to a playoff birth and potentially a nc appearance. on and on

    I will make another one mid season with what you mentioned and add more and see if anything has changed.

    How many of those 113 are college educated? Do you know where they went to school?

    You rang the bell pretty loud there but I’m having a difficult time seeing the entitlement . . .

    Looks like LSU is tapped out and Louisiana has emense potential for growth.

    I would expect any group surveyed to favor LSU, but I would mainly expect numbers that badly skewed in a group with less college education than more. That’s not a comment on intelligence. There’s just no tie to the schools themselves, so it would make sense that the vast majority would choose the program with several national titles over the program that just mustered up its first conference title.
