Tulsa has a football attendance problem. I was surprised at the lack of people at the game last year. I have been hard on Tulsa in the past a laughing hysterically about Tulsane. Tulsa has separated itself from Tulane, but in order to take the next step must consider attendance.

Like the lights were so old, we didn't turn the lights off for player introductions before the game because I was told they took too long to come back on. We built Fifth Third and just stopped upgrading after it was built.

So for UC:

1. Continuous facility improvement: Make the fans have the best experience possible to get people in seats.

2. MARKETING: UC does such a terrible job at marketing its basketball program and building hype in the off season. They release some cool videos some times but I want to see more basketball billboards around the city.

Also can we please have a Midnight madness to kick off the season? That ****** catholic school across tons puts on a frickin light show with exploding fireballs on their midnight madness... UC instead does a red and black scrimmage during homecoming tailgating hours of the football game where you can never find a place to park and zero promotion for it.

UC just needs to do more to promote basketball. I know Football drives revenue and conference affiliation but lets not forget that we've always been Basketball first up until the last 15 years or so.

The best thing about The Shoe renovation will be the additional revenue stream it will be bring. This is especially important to UC in light of the fact that the Big East exit fee money will be expiring soon. Second, the improved amenities will enhance the game day experience, which should help with attendance.

UC is going to need its alumni and fans step up their game (for all sports). This means showing up for games and donating money, regardless of the opponent. This has been a battle we have been fighting for eternity. I don't know if it has ever been important to the future of our athletics department.

Honest question: Did you all really think Tulsa and Tulane were on the same level? No offense to Tulane, but we've generally had the upper hand against them athletically.

Tulsa has always been competitive, so I was personally never too worried about that. My objections to Tulsa joining this conference were related to being a small, private school in a medium-sized market with limited reach. But in retrospect, there is no one outside of BYU and a couple of Mountain West schools that I would have preferred at the time.

That's why I said up enrollment and local / regional marketing. Both of those help attendance.

1. Get a pulse in basketball.
2. Start winning bowls again, it's been awhile.
3. Live up to pre-season baseball hype.

Regarding that stadium issue, I am rooting hard for 5+ years' straight 0-16 record for the Philadelphia Eagles. They should be ashamed of how they are treating Temple.

If I am a Temple grad, there's no way in Hades that I would support that team in green.

Yes, my only understanding of Tulsa was from the first couple of years of league play.
