    I hope the statue of Leon outside the TAC starts a trend. We have several 'greats' we need to honor in Tech athletics.

    I am thinking skip has killed the football fan base so much, that no one will be there to see it. Which is sad.

    I was just thinking this. Shame that a legend will be recognized in front of what may be the smallest good weather crowd in Holtz’s tenure.

    I have the same fear.... Tech needs to do a big email, snail mail for the older crowd, and social media blitz just for this event alone - not tying it to the game. They could mention the game, but get those older Lady Techster fans to come for this alone. I doubt they will do that, though. If those over 70 get something in the mail that seems like a personalized invitation, it would work though.

    We used to get a legit 4,000 for most Techster games, sometimes more, for the big games. Well, there might be 4,000 at Aillet Saturday, if most of them attend this event, Barmore will be okay with it.

    Probably not the same crowd, though. I still think this is not advertised enough. A lot of the fans of the Techsters during the great years are much much older now. They need direct mail invites and I bet this would be packed. Put the younger crowd and us middle agers in there and you have a huge crowd. The current football audience has some overlap, but not near enough.

    Sorry...my post was totally sarcastic and was aimed at what Skippy/the admin are doing to football attendance.

    The "middle age" needle continues to move as I get older.
