PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
While I agree, haven't we lost our last two trips to Ross Ade?
Doesn't matter if they've beaten the Bucks a handful of times, since 2005 they are 41-48 having a max win total of 8 games, twice. That won't sell out your stadium.
"If you build it, they will come."
A very good friend of mine was a member of Ohio's Marching 110 back in the early 80s. His freshman year, another friend and I went down to visit him for the weekend. We went to the game (which had about 10K in the stands) and left after the halftime show. As we were leaving, a small group of students polled us as to why we were not staying for the rest of the game.
"Why are you leaving?"
"We just came to see the band," I answered.
"What can we do to make more people stay for the entire game?"
"Win more games," I replied.
The girl asking the questions smiled. "Besides that, what else can we do?"
"Lock the gates," I said as the two of us walked away.
Besides winning???? Come on, this is Ohio, not Indiana! We will sit through snowstorms and burning September heat if the team is a winner.
To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.
Are these the fools that added the T-shirt cannon nonsense to Buckeye games? "Look out, Brutus is on the loose!" *Huge sigh* Having an Integrys Energy T shirt shot at me does not improve gameday.
I feel like this consulting group will recommend various gimmicks, "proving" their worth by listing other schools with good attendence that use them. Correlation is not causation.
