RE: Game Atmosphere
Maybe the sponsorship on every announcement can retire with the old stadium too? I know we have bills to pay, but damn is it embarrassing to have ATLANTIC BAY THIRD DOWN!

We need a new hip announcer who can make even the boring of sentences into multi-high-pitch-low-pitch modern sounding guy. I wouldn't mind putting in that FM host that came to announce basketball games few years back. We need a modern guy instead of a voice that makes you sleep. In a semi bass flat voice "ATLANTIC BAY THIRD DOWN!", I'm like 03-zzz03-zzz03-zzz03-zzz

Guy bedside me asked if anyone had ever actually heard what he says. I told him that it depends on how much he drinks during the tail gate.

This is your 5th.


Yes, he does because the game atmosphere absolutely sucks at Foreman Field. When your defense is on the field and has your opponent pinned at 3rd long, fans should not be sitting quietly in their seats waiting to see what happens. They should be standing up making enough noise that it makes communication difficult for the opponent. My only hope at this point is that next week when ODU travels to Blacksburg, ODU admin and fans finally experience a game atmosphere that is crazy enough to disrupt the visiting team. If at any point in a game at VT, the PA starts the intro to Enter Sandman, the whole stadium explodes with emotion. It's a rallying point that the team feeds off of. If Wilder and company were smart, they'd make the team practice under such conditions this week.

I sat in section 102 yesterday. It was so disappointing to see the fans so unresponsive, even when the football team itself was signaling from the sideline to get loud by moving their arms up and down and waving their towels. (In case y'all didn't know that's what they meant.) I can't imagine any decent recruit would sign on for that lack of support.

Isn't there someone on this board who works for the athletic department?

Agree completely. And it's embarrassing. Everyone in that stadium should own this fundamentally and do their part to change it.

Sadly posting about it on here the only ones that read it aren't the issue. It's the season ticket holders that are there for a pleasant evening of football watching.

Posted from mobile device. Hopefully it's coherent.

It does but spending any money on Foreman other than what it absolutely necessary at this point would be horribly irresponsible by the athletic department. Fixing the sound system with 10 games left in the life of the place would be an awful investment.

It was about $500 to fix it last time from what I was told. Doesn't seem like that is too much to ask for to keep many fairly large donors happy. Does it ? That is not horribly irresponsible. It is horribly irresponsible to not fix it.

Obviously the $500 didn't fix it, at least not for long.

Maybe we could participate at a level where we don't have to prostitute ourselves to every clown offering us $1.00!

Maybe if CUSA didnt suck and actually increased our media revenue up from $1million instead of down to $200k. And its hard to get on the fans for not being into the game when you're down 30 at half and can even get a first down in the first quarter. I also forgot to even look for the stripe the stadium success. Did it happen? I wore the right color, did everyone else?
