    FAU shuts classes before Tech game Friday

    FAU shutting down classes before Friday home game

    Needing a big win at home, FAU is shutting down classes to encourage students to jam the stands for a home game against Louisiana Tech.

    Gives them a chance to clear out campus and allows the elite fans easier access. Sounds like something our AD would do.

    Also gives people a chance to tailgate all day and create an actual gameday atmosphere. Sounds like something our AD wouldn't do.

    They have about 40,000 students don't they? I'll bet their stadium will still be almost empty.

    At least they are trying, some schools do not care if students are even aware of a game being played. Even the head coach is trying to encourage students to come to the game. Maybe the school is just using his name, but it is a start nonetheless. Not bad for a commuter school.

    I want to to see us do something. It doesn't feel like our athletic department is even trying this year. There is no creativity in trying to market to the region and students. TMac sees it as a successful season by having one or two high attendance games (ie Southern, Miss State, ULL...) and the rest he doesn't care. It's a trend I've seen since he got here. We are trending downwards with football and basketball attendance.

    Try a new QB. That's what it's going to take to renew the interest of those of us that just can't take watching J'Mar struggle to perform at this level anymore.

    read article about the game from their version of Diaz-- he said they average about 40% of stadium and worse since they started losing -- that said, if it were Ruston a lot of students would head home.


    I wanted to go to game but airfare was $750 and 3 nites in Boca was $600 . Plan to have game watching at my place but I do not have any friends so by myself

    maybe trying hard to get stadium at least half full - game on national TV and embarrassing without decent crowd. I get frustrated when we are on TV and the student side 50 yard line is half empty BECAUSE students are NOT allowed on 50 yard line without special tickets-- I say let them sit in that area -- seldom an issue -let them in when game starts -- looks better on TV

    That won’t make peopls magically show up again unless its drastically different. Even then, this year is likely set. Changing QBs wouldnt change enough to cause any major increase.

    most BBB knows 45 the one and only Ferguson is leading nation in Sacks and 11/2 to set CUSA records . Remember he did NOT play last year because of injury-- tables turned quite a bit F.A has a lot of key players banged up -- Vegas has FA but Sagan has Tech . I seem to Jinx us with picks so I am not letting everyone know I pick us ( if RBs are healthy) -

    Rotolos having a game party -$2 beer and Margaretta --

    Good grief-- exclude LSU we are 5-1 and that's without healthy RBs--- Our strength is our Defense and fortunately Holtz and staff know how to win !! you want qb to perform, I want wins and whether you like it or not JM will be our qb in Bowl game and 90% probable started next year ... understand I get frustrated during most games but we have won every game I have attended this year except the UAB when we had no RB -- one we played lost 2 fumbles and not played since

    #45 & #21 are excellent sales tools that we can market with. Our AD does not know how to market
