    - Get the students engaged like they were when our AD arrived.
    - Suck up to Tech grads who are wearing purple and yellow.
    - Fix tail gating. It did not need fixing when our AD arrived, it needed to be tweaked.
    - Market to local families. Yes, the family pack is great, but we need more.
    - Market in ways that reach potential fans. Social media only reaches those who are already Tech fans (some of them)

    Are you going to Starkville?

    They're just looking for an excuse to not come to any games and to go to tigger games. I don't believe they're potential customers or donors. I donated back when we had multiple losing seasons and had season tickets for quite a few losing seasons (the JBIII era). You probably did, too.

    I remember one year a couple of Grambling Grads had season tickets next to me. So you're right. You never know were potential customers might come from.

    It's amazing that you can make that determination from hundreds of miles away in Houston. I congratulate you.

    Yes. Especially since I wasn't there. It's a super power I have.

    Positives:
    We are 6-2, and I hope we will be 10-2, but at least 9-3, AS A TEAM.
    We have a great group of receivers.
    We have put up 21 points on the #4 team in the country. More than Florida, Ole Miss, MS-State, Georgia respectively.
    Our O-Line is good.
    Our D Secondary is very good.
    Jaylon is on fire and we will be talking 10 years from now about how we saw him play, and on..
    Amik has shut down one half of the field. Its a No Fly Zone.
    We have a solid FG kicker.
    Great Aussie kicker and punter.
    We are a disciplined team.
    Skip IS good at clock management. The man can drain a clock.
    Tech is not a team that others take lightly. Opponents know that we can come to their field come away with a W.
    You get this a lot when you are further away from Tech's recruiting range and that is comments like "you guys are good", "you all have a good program". It is a program that is respected and a school that we can be proud to be a part of.

    There are more. Coming soon...
    In regional games from NTexas to UAB . . . Tech fans travel.
    More tickets (hear that LSU?), concessions, hotel rooms, food and gasolnie sold in those markets.

    LSU does not need Tech fans to sell out tigger swamp. It may not always be full but I imagine it's always sold out even when playing McNeese. Correct me if I am wrong.

    You are wrong -

    The Tech game was the first sell-out since the Bama game in 2016...

    Granted this is based on a limited source, but it's my understanding that LSU has never sold out a game vs. an in-state school, except for Tech. Which they have done every time we played there. Now, that is strictly "modern" day information. It may not include the early 80's when LSU and Tulane were still arch-rivals and the stadiums, either the Dome or Tiger Stadium were packed. I attended several such games, both in the Dome and at Tiger Stadium back then, and if they were not complete sellouts, I'm not sure where the empty seats were. I don't recall seeing any.

    Again, this is what I've been told by an in-the-know LSU booster and insider. Since AD Joe Dean and then Skip Bertman hatched the plan to play in-state schools, to keep the money in-state, Tech games have sold out, but no others have. Now, I doubt that to be true when ULL played there. They have played 3 times, dating back to 2002. I watched some of those games on TV, and Tiger Stadium looked packed, at least until about halftime. Games were not competitive. LSU outscored ULALA 124-6 in those three games. The Cajuns have yet to score a single TD there. But my source says "Nope!" ULL has not sold out. Of course, having 101,000 in a 103,000-seat stadium is still pretty damn good, if you ask me.

    Like many other fans, they find itís easier to stay home and watch on TV for free than to drop several Benjaminís to sit in the nose bleed section.
