    I drive a little over a hundred miles one way to be there, not a big deal to me as I travel for a living anyway. I have not made the games I usually make this year due to Health reasons, did make three and hopefully the last one this year though.

    There is not any marketing in my area of the Miss-Lou that I have noticed, though I have noticed High School Councilors seem to have TECH high on their list. I have seen more flags, license plates, car stickers, etc. in the last 5-10 years though, strictly fan/student based support.

    Based on those I've visited with our first time game attendees may be at an all time high. We are very likely at an all time low for getting them back for a repeat visit.

    I definitely wouldn’t expect sympathy. Thanks for your commitment all these years.

    I grew up in the Miss-Lou (Ferriday), and I can tell you that that area is fully LSU! That includes Natchez which, for the most part, ignores Ole Miss and Miss. State for LSU. Being only about 85-90 miles away from the LSU campus is a big reason.

    I am amazed at the number of LSU fans in MS, there are even some grads from State, ole Miss, and USM especially that are LSU fans.

    Vidalia does have a little Niche' that funnels some kids to TECH, I recruited three onto the campus this year and all three are now going to attend TECH.
