    We have, 3 years of it. 2014, 2015, and 2016 were good for us at every home game but one, and I found them just as weak every year. I know very few people, if any, who’d call their attendance respectable outside of one half of one game where they get recognized. Its more worthwhile to appeal to the general student body. Need more promotions, and need our sponsors to not be as cheap as they felt last season (more shirts!). Continue and promote the student attendance rewards on the sports app, maybe bump up the rewards a bit. Have a drawing for a big prize at the end of the season for all who attended all the home games and signed in on the app! Make them want to come for some reason, be it the love of the team or a chance to win a TV. If they come for the TV, maybe we can hook them on the team as well.

    While I see your point, at least the Southern fans are paid attendees.

    Depending on visiting fans to help fill the stadium is our AD NOT doing the job he is being paid to do.

    Reckon that's why he pays Southern more than any other school pays them?

    Speaking of Southern fans....don't wait. Get your tickets now. Should be a nice crowd...especially if the weather forecast is good for that weekend. Probably 26K+

    They just leave to cross the street to get/stay hammered. Sell beer inside the stadium and solve a good bit of the problem.

    Our people (AD) took away their long time pregame tailgate privileges last year.

    We should be okay as long as no tigger or Fresno fans come to our games.

    Putting everything else in this discussion adide, the No. 1 goal of our administration should be to involve students in every way possible and build life-long loyalty.

    Exactly, but our AD doesn't care at all. He proved that last year with his 8:00 parking BS.
