    TOWSON 29, W & M 13 (story)

    Delaware will be ranked come Monday, I'd expect them to get the name love and be ranked near us. So we'll likely play 4 top 20 teams to close the season.

    What is up with Attendance & Game Promotion?

    But the questions we need to be asking are: How did we allow one person to yield so much power by turning into the no fun police? And how do we stop it as alumni? How do we have an AD that seemingly has no concept to what marketing is and has no power at all in university affairs. What is our forum to voice these concerns other than complaining here? Do they send out a season ticket holder survey? Not to my knowledge but a basic thing to start. How about an open feedback session.

    What is up with Attendance & Game Promotion?

    We've been talking about this randomly in other threads, figured I start one specially dedicated to attendance and ( lacking) game promotion. Some topics to get us started: Student attendance: very weak. Yes, I do think back to back to back home games and the late start to the home schedule let freshmen settled into college life without football. However, even with giveaways and a ranked team (top 25 match up this past week) we can't seem to draw nearly as many students as in years past, even when we sucked. NO STUDENTS STOOD DURING EITHER GAME AND MADE ZERO NOISE. We need to get some student organization back involved. When I was in school it was T-Unit then came along Doc's Army... now??? Tailgating: Walked over to lot 13 & 14 during the home opener, it was just sad. What happened to the awesome tailgating in lot 14? Bad tailgating hurts student attendance as well. I know the school wants to be the morality police (Deb Moriarty in particular) but come on gotta let the kids be kids and enjoy something that is supposed to bring the college experience together. Lot 21 tailgating seems fine and basic (my spot is on that side). However, lot 21 could really be upped with an area set up to sell food and beer, saving the donors from having to bring everything. Also both tailgate sides should have a pop up team shop. The one places that is always popping during games is the team store, alumni want to buy stuff! SELL IT TO THEM. Tickets: $50 for season tickets? So cheap and yet we can't seem to sell them? Not claiming to know an answer here. Game promotions: Do they even promote game on campus? General question, I have no idea but when I was in school they had signage up all over game weeks, cheerleaders and players would hang out in the union giving out flyers. Regardless of that, to the general fan the athletics staff is really just following the generic game day promotions playbook. (Home opener, Pink Game, Parents Weekend, Homecoming, Senior Day) My high school had better themes. The only thing missing from the generic playbooks is hometown heroes and first responders (vomit) and if we had six home games I bet that would be it. Food: I feel like the food has been the same for 15 years. Nothing healthy or fresh, no grilled options (hot dogs are boiled), drinks are soda and Gatorade no tea or other limited sugar options. Why no bring third party brands? Boardwalk fires, chickfila, any pizza brand, etc. Booze: Turtle on the track is a nice addition but it keeps people out of their seats. Just sell booze in the stands...its 2018... The food also sucks down there. Positive the beers are cheap! Field House: Having it open during the game keeps people from going to their seats. Keep it open for bathrooms or whatever but encourage people back into the stadium Sponsors: Do we have any good ones? Do we pay UA or do they pay us? Also WTF is New Day USA? Looks like a scam to me. It's just mind boggling to me an athletics department connected to a school with a large business program and marketing department (which I am a graduate from) can't seem to understand the basics of generating awareness and interest. Run an internship program??? Having radio/prints/tv ads is a massive waste of money and not relevant in driving interest in 2018. We are stuck looking like clowns with a half full stadium on game day with a 1990's playbook on how to address 2018 sports entertainment. Call up DC United, Ted Leonsis and ask/beg them for some basic tips. My only ask is to not get cheap and call Dan Synder. Free advice just don't do whatever it is we are doing and whatever it is dan synder would do.

    TOWSON 52, STONY BROOK 28 (story up)

    WTOP sports guy did a shout out to Tom and did the "Fight on Towson Tigers, Fight on Black and Gold" bit during the local sports update on Saturiday morning with the upcoming local game times. That is a DC station calming Towson as a local team.....very sad Baltimore can't seem muster any support.

    Yes*, the weather should be nice, we are coming in with a winning record and are ranked. Plus we'll get about 4k in students (mostly freshmen) ..for the first half. The attendance will not be over 7500 at the start of the 4th quarter even if a one score game. *Only counting tickets "sold" and one cards scanned, not butts in seats

    How is this possible?

    Can someone please tell me how and when elon got/is good??????? They got beat pretty well by FBS South Florida (not a power 5, while our FBS L is a power 5) and they beat Furman who plays in the not so great SoCon. Similar to our not so great win at Morgan vs a lower conference. In 2017 Elon had a good year but no great wins. There games were all very close, like under one TD games, include a 2OT 3 point win vs us last year. Sure hats off to pulling out the close games however they lost 3 in a row to close out last season.

    Bucknell is back on the schedule

    Agree it will likely be closer to 1/2 million mark for a mid season SEC game. That seems to be the general going rate but hopefully even higher. https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2016/6/22/11648368/scheduling-cupcake-guarantee-games-cost Do we keep track of our payout game amounts someplace? My buddy that I watched the Wake game with, and went to Wake, was asking how much we got paid for the game. I personally am a fan of the payout games; it really helps fund the department and it's nice to say "hey, you paid us to be here" while seeing the our boys in larger/historic stadiums.

    Bucknell is back on the schedule

    I don't love this matchup, we have nothing to gain from this as a home and home. Only reason we should even play them is with 2:1. but cool website shows us playing Florida next year in the week leading up to the FL-Georgia game. Anyone know how much we are getting paid to be UF's tackling dummies?

    Tigers fall to Wake Forest, 51-20

    Watched the game at a Wake bar in DC.. so many golf shirts and khaki shorts. Kept the game close early but the D just couldn't keep up with their QB and Dortch. Kick coverage was just bad, hopefully we fix that this week, we can't do that poorly vs FCS teams or it will be along season. Penalties, Special Teams, and not winning the turnover battle means we had no chance for the upset over the full 60. O looked good, I'm a bit concerned about the running game but it was already a shoot out in the 1st so we'll see next week if we can move the ball and control the clock.

    Morgan State game to be televised

    Hopefully ESPN + works for me up at the lakes in Minnesota this weekend. I can't image a world without streaming sports online anymore.

    First Football Practice update

    Always read the updates and love them! just don't always have a comment to add. I agree we gotta get the page poppin again like it was in the CAAZone days. I remember learning about the zone via a promo during a media time out at a football game. It would be nice if the school could show us some promotion love.

    Record predictions for football season

    i'm doing it...going rogue!!! 11-0 No, I do not actually believe we are going 11-0 but you have to approach each game like you want to win it. (You play to win the game...) We expect the players and coaches to do so. I'm not a fan of predicting L's. Regardless, we need to make the playoffs otherwise a shake up needs to happen.

    Summer Hoops Report

    Yes!! My guess would be AU or Howard would be the host or maybe G-town will play their smaller non-conference games at the new arena and not Cap One. Or WILDCARD we do a neutral site game with JMU or GMU..try to get both schools to get the DC alumni out. (one can dream...maybe one day the alumni department will give a shit about building up the DC alumni community and not treating it like an extension of all the Baltimore events)
