    Someone Has Finally Listened - Southern Univeristy Coming to Ruston in 2015

    Per Big Jason Jones -

    I predict one of the larger traveling fan bases to visit JAS when they come to town - which I would assume may be opening home game next year...

    Jag fans HAVE money and will travel...

    It will draw a lot in the area just to see Southern. Gonna be really loud in JAS especially once the SEZ is complete.

    Get your hotel reservation ASAP. . . . especially if GSU tries to schedule home game that day, too . . . .

    I can see this exceeding capacity of 27k. We should look at adding temporary stands in the NEZ (north endzone).

    Love this, always said we should be playing Grambling and Southern if we are playing an FCS school. Great move.

    Sell out guaranteed if this is the first game of the season and maybe any game of the season.

    Younger fan here. Why are we excited about playing a SWAC school? (yes I understand it's a massive achievement for us to schedule any game whatsoever at home).

    Because the G-Men or Southern will easily bring 10k fans to the Joe, that's why. Plus it (in most years) should be an easy win.

    Southern and most SWAC's travel incredibly well, they use the game as more of a reunion than a competition, especially with in-state schools. I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop in the summer when it gets moved to SBC...

    Beat me to it. I was surprised to read the thread and see that it said Ruston and not Independence Stadium.

    A lot of north Louisiana and south Arkansas folks will come see a HBCU...more for the entertainment of the band/tailgate/party than the football game.

    Good question. Other than a decent gate (Note: Only one or two SWAC schools will provide a decent gate), playing a SWAC school does nothing for us other than providing a win. Ironically, a win against a SWAC school will likely hurt us if we are in the hunt for an access bowl. It is bad enough we have a Belch school on the schedule.

    I have a hard time buying the argument that we can't get home games. Other schools pull it off. We have had several good homes games in our hands, but for one reason or another decided not to do it: BYU (still waiting for an answer on what happened with this one), Baylor (scheduled and canceled by us), Kansas (turned down a home-and-home) ...

    I often wonder if the mantra that we can't schedule home games is just to lower our expectations.

    Concessions won't be a big deal cuz nobody will patronize them during halftime band performance.

    I'd say SEZ completion may impact game location.

    BVD happened to the BYU game and turned down TCU for a home game as well a few years a ago.

    We are playing an FCS team every year so it only makes sense to schedule smart and bring in teams that will buy tickets and make you $$$. Same reason we should play Northwestern like last year, best crowd in several years and adds to game day experience for fans and players. Also brings in business to sponsors, local businesses, and Ruston.

    This better not happen!! I'm not going there at night, and if La Tech does that to me and I don't go I'm going to get my ticket $ back for that game one way or the other. But JAS would be excellent, great atmosphere, I like this game for 2015.
