  1. March '92: wrapping up spring semester @ HCC.
  2. Interesting Green-n-White discussion. We used to be season ticket holders to Publix.
  3. Sat with some WSU alumni at the game. They reside in Vero Beach and came up - last year for UCF - and this year for USF. This is a down year for the Shockers. 'Rebuilding' is the common phrase, and they have a lot of guys who, last year, were playing high school ball on the court getting good experience for the years to come. WS this year is across town from the NCAA teams of late. I don't think we need to risk a broken arm patting ourselves on the back. The first half looked more like high school ball.

    MBB attendance

    I'll swing by Tuesday night and eyeball this alleged bump in attendance myself. Bringing der frau und in-laws so that should skew the headcount towards a more "mature" demographic.
  5. I was speaking in the "we" the university sense of the word.
  6. Wait a minute. Those numbers don't seem to be too far off from what we're pulling in twenty-one years later. Is it possible that our attendance has plateaued? Is it possible that, miracles aside, this is what we could be looking at for the foreseeable future? IF it is, we might not need to build Neyland Stadium 2.0.( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._stadiums_by_capacity).
  7. What was attendance for game #2 in our storied history? They wised up. It was the new shiny object. It was history in the making. Then, as is often the case, the luster wore off. Critical to vitality? That's a tough one. Could we be satisfied with an IPF and another two decades at RayJ?

    Over\Under 5 Wins Next Year?

    Well, 5-7 or 6-6, either way, the line item for celebration budget expenditures is safe. No chance of drifting into the red on that one.
  9. Probably don't wanna hear this, but we did the annual closet cleaning before Xmas and hauled a couple of bags down to Salvation Army. Fellas, there was some genuine green-n-gold Bulls regalia in those bags. So, although Santa wisely passed our humble abode this year, there's somebody, somewhere, who will wind up with some second hand gameday apropos athletic wear. As an advisory, if you run across someone wearing an away style USF jersey with the name "Wooly" on the back, it ain't me. I pretty much wore that solely for away games. So you know.

    Over\Under 5 Wins Next Year?

    Push at Five. But being honest, even if we went .500, that's still not cause for celebration.

    Attendance

    Why? Then ESPN is stuck having to fill December programming slots with darts, billiards and volleyball. And if I recall correctly, no one is holding a loaded forty-five to the heads of the ADs of the participating schools. Any school can take the moral high ground and say "You know what? We finished 8-4 this year, aren't even ranked in the top 20, so we'll decline the option of playing in the Battle Frog Makers Wanted Bowl. It's just not a money making proposition. We'll spend more than we'll get revenue wise. We're just gonna cool our jets here at the ranch until next fall. Thanks for the invite, but we're gonna pass (in the participatory sense of the word)." For some bizarre reason "Hey, we went to a bowl game" and "we won our bowl game" (without going into a lot of detail vis-a-vis sponsorship) seems to have merit. We all get the joke that there are only a handful of bowl games that "matter". I think these also-ran bowls are just a natural extension of the season. It's not about rewarding a stellar season. It's that you didn't have a losing season. And we just happen to know this company willing to pay $X to sponsor a bowl. That being the case....
  12. I think unannounced suspensions should run parallel to unannounced attendance.

    Remember, sports fans, if you are gainfully employed by HCPS you got free tix for you and your family to the game, and free transport to and from various locales within the county. HCPS employs a whole heap of people, so it'd be interesting to see how many people were there taking advantage of that, vice payin for a seat.
  14. Well, on the plus side we didn't play any ineligible players so there's no risk of having one of those precious seven taken away. Hey...someone has to be the first one to jump outta the door, why not us. There are worse things than 7-6, and you know what I mean!
