    Look at some big giveaways for the first game. We know of a guy who owns car/atv dealerships. Have some specifically for students only, like tuition discount prizes. Meal plan prizes. Housing prizes, voucher for upgrading to a newer dorm/apartment for a year or something. And maybe a concert. Make this feel like we are refreshing the approach to gameday. Remove time constraints for tailgating.
    So you got nothing...

    Thats what itll take. Giveaways will draw them in. While there we gotta give them an experience.

    No matter who we hire, the students aren’t going to come just to see him coach his first game just because he’s new.

    Now, checking our schedule, @ Baylor is our first game. Biggest thing to boost our home opener would be to win that. But I certainly don’t expect our new coach to win that game.

Some people simply think Tech overreacted.

    One thing is clear, Its not a good 3 year trajectory. Wood said as much. But Tech is not going to be damaged by one bad season. Stop acting like we’ve had a sub-3 win total for 10 years. This is nothing.
    Tech52 is right.

    So I assume everyone on the gofundme is ponying up the $4190 to offset the university's $3M buyout, right? Ever loyal be, right?

    Only those that supported the constant contract extensions with the buyouts need to do that. From what I've read on this board, there won't be much ponying going on.

    The gofundme sure sounds like a contract to me, but I suppose the university knows the posters here are full of shit.

    That $4K would put the remaining total under $3M that the Foundation is on the hook for.

    TimmyB has gone a little (no, make that a LOT) overboard with some of his comments. If he wants to play athletic administrator, he should probably watch a few games other than just the one he calls each week.

    Y'all back off Timmy B. we are related. I see him once or twice a year at family reunions (we can't always make both reunions), and I will have a talk with him about his comments. He's more interested in the Big 12 or Big 10 whichever he's calling these days, anyway. And he has a flaw...he went to NLU. Which as a family member I am willing to set aside, for the sake of family unity.

    I can overlook his comments for two reasons. One, he's obvious a friend of Skip, which is understandable. Skip is a good guy from a good family and had some success here, so obviously Timmy B is standing up for him.

    But more importantly, Timmy B isn't, never has, and never will be interested in what's best for Louisiana Tech.

    Good post.

    Except, I can say, from many conversations I've had with him, he KNOWS Tech Football. He's told me some things, insider information, I didn't know about Tech players/coaches. And, I can also say he admires and respects Tech Football...with that always-present caveat of "remember your place." But, that comes with the territory.

    I just don't like him bashing my opinions for commenting on his opinions.

    Exactly. So pay up! Especially Chris Foster who promised $1000.
