    What did yesterday cost us? About 3,000 paid customers for our next home game. And, if that is a loss, another 12,000 for the last three home games.

    But the announced number won't go down.

    It cost me about $400. Still can't think of anything I'd prefer doing though.
    Have you considered those Dogs?

    I ate $50 worth of tickets and I'm glad I did

    Played 30 holes of golf then went to church and worked on a tractor after lunch

    With Skip as HC I find it harder and harder to commit to the invest of time and resources to make a road trip

    We had a good time. The stadium is pretty bad, I think Independence Stadium may be nicer than that place. Of course, I don't enjoy watching the Dawgs lose. But I thought UAB came out inspired and they had a pretty vocal crowd. Our team was flat but they never quit. I've seen Tech teams just concede games like that with a "it just ain't our day" attitude. We played through it. Skip should have given the offense a chance to win the game. I think they would have won it. We're going to need our offense to win a game at some point, and that was a good opportunity for them to do so.

    Some said UAB piped in noise when we had the ball. It sounded unusually loud on the radio. What did you notice?

    They were remarkably loud but I didn't think it was piped in. However, they did have the sound from the video board turned up at times when we were lined up.

    Can't do that. I guess the refs overlooked another broken rule. If COYHCSH doesn't know the rules then it's on him.

    You know what? I'm really not sure they did played it during game action. I'm positive Holtz would have said something if they did because it was really loud.

    All I know is that listening on the radio it was loud (like 50K loud) when we had the ball. I thought that was strange, but Dave and Teddy never mentioned the crowd noise or piped in noise.

    No, I would've described it as a character-defining historic patina.

    Did the loss cost us more that the Hideaway Park Debacle? Let's get real fellows. What's really important - winning or Hideaway Park?

    The loss actually helps Ruston. More USM visitors will want to come watch the game now.
