Re: Starting QB 2019

Well, it looks like I was too late to secure a FCS Championship ticket on the presale which started yesterday. They are all sold out and I would bet my last bottom dollar that the Bison faithful have about 85% of them. I have been in this position before and usually can get a ticket on the resale m...

Visitors locker room?

Quick question...anyone know what the visiting football teams use for their locker room? I know that both teams walk from Western Hall/Rec Center area, and our guys have a pretty nice looking locker room, but I was curious what the visitors use.

Re: New football building

If I remember correctly, a while back someone said that the plans we have for a new football building are very much inspired by what Weber State is doing. Their facility is now nearly complete, and there's an article with a bunch of photos here: https://www.standard.net/multimedia/photos-inside-webe...

Usually there's a few color variations on logos. I wouldn't be surprised if we end up using purple on white or light backgrounds, and gold...

Re: Enrollment Updates

The newspaper article spoke of an enrollment of 6,000+ on the Macomb campus for the Fall 2019 semester. The news story from WGEM talked about an incoming freshman class of 1,000.

Re: Enrollment Updates

He did seem impressive, does anyone know if he would be interested in the job on a permanent basis? From what I heard from people who were at the open session when he was being interviewed, it's sounds like he does eventually want to be a university president somewhere. I don't know that he was thi...
