    We don’t have a $40,000 job with that exact description.

    Yeah, you just can't expect LA Tech to spend 40K a year to make an extra $1.2 MILLION or so, IN ONE SPORT! Increase ticket sales by 10,000 fans per game (e.g., from 13K to 23K per game) for a 6 home game football schedule next year, and that's the minimal impact at $20 per ticket for just football. Now, add-in fan increases in all the other sports, and the number probably exceeds $2 Million a year in improvement.

    But someone might mistake us for a school that actually cares about athletics. We wouldn't want that to happen.

    What’s worse is that we don’t have anyone currently on staff at $40,000/yr that we could ask to spend 2-4 hours a week working on this type of deal.

    That’s fine too. If someone could implement a program that attracted and kept students, I would be in favor of bumping their salary to $40k

    As bad as Cumbie and his team is it doesnít matter what youíre giving away. This program is in the crapper.

    I donít know. Maybe being able to beat FIU? Maybe if we had a team that could do that, more people would want to attend?

    Some of you seem surprised after having watched this S Show in 2020 and 2021.

    It's tough to watch now, but no more so than it was for the previous two years.

    BTW, our special teams have been this bad since 2013.

    I think itís more of f a hope that Skip was the main problem. I think he was, but that problem filters down to our roster and will have an impact for a while.

    Special teams sunk us last night. We have a knack for shanking punts at the worst possible time. Our upbacks had no idea what to do on the pooch kick.

    In the second OT, we abandoned what got us to OT in the first place. Iím praying some of the 5 yard passes on 3rd and long were check downs.

    I do think we saw how a better passing game opens up the run.

    Still really bad in the secondary (coverage and tackling). LBs are usually in position, but are too slow and not real sure tacklers after you get past #44. I actually think our line play has improved on both sides of the ball.

    I can see where weíre headed on O. Just donít have the horses to run it right yet.

    Iím less sure where the D is headed.

    I was hoping for a little improvement in our record. Not seeing it yet. Just hoping Sonny isn't in over his head.

    I think he is, but all new HCs are. Weíll get a better feel for the long term viability of this experiment after a he has a full recruiting season under his belt. If the players buy in, we should see fewer transfers out here in a few months.

    Nobody could win more than a few games with what we have on the roster. I think next year we may win 4-5 games as the ceiling. Year 3 will be the year where we will see a turnaround if it’s going to happen at all.

    Re: What will it take to drive game attendance up?

    Itís an understatement, I know, to say this team and itís coaching staff have a long, long way to go before and if Tech ever becomes good again. Maybe itís a good thing that theyíre all going through it together. Maybe itíll save us some time in the long run. As important as it is that we quickly upgrade our player personnel itís also very apparent that Cumbie needs to learn and improve at being a head coach. I for one expected him to be considerable further along in what all he was bringing to the table. I overestimated him. Iím not writing him off yet but his learning curve needs to take a major upturn going forward if heís to right Techís program.
