Re: Question on Family Day Game

I’ve had some interactions with Diane Cassimire. She has some good ideas and is very open to others. If you ever get a chance to meet her I highly recommend it. She’s a very impressive and energetic young lady. Hoping the new administration gives her the support she needs to implement ideas and try...

Re: Question on Family Day Game

I have said for years that we need to have a couple of hoops games every year at the IWireless Now Taxslayer in Moline. I just wonder how a football game at Modern Woodmen would go over. I assume it could be converted into a football field layout. Sight lines would not be great but the picturesque ...

Ticket Donations

Last year, the parents group bought GA tickets to one game and donated them to youth groups in Macomb. We are going to make this a yearly event. This year’s game is the opener vs Montana State. We’ve already reached out to BBBSs of Macomb and they are thrilled to go. Being from Kansas City, I don’t ...

Re: Question on Family Day Game

Maybe for Family Day they can have a “Best Tailgate Party” contest. Maybe get a Pizza Place in town to offer a $100 gift Card to go to the winning organization. Also, free or at least discounted tickets for all the Campus Organizations having family day activities? Any idea is better than no idea. T...

Question on Family Day Game

Last year on Family Day we only had announced attendance of 4,011. I know the town was full of parents that day, and it was next to impossible to find hotel rooms. Why was attendance so low? What does family day consist of on Campus? What, if anything can be done to “push” people to Hanson field at ...

Re: Father's Day message from the Team

Not sure if this has already been mentioned on here, but Fitz is the new media guy for the Football team. In my opinion, could not be a better guy for the job! Excited to see more content like this, until an FBS school steals him away

Re: New football building

Agreed. Also, forward thinking vs Conservative (in vision not politics). I think having Bainter reinstated is likely more beneficial for this. I heard a lot of the BIG donors for this project were Bainter Boys. Not directly athletics-related, but from what I heard, one recent "distinguished alumni"...

Re: New football building

Let’s see how fast things move now. I think a lot depends on whether the interim/incoming is a "sports-minded" guy or gal. Agreed. Also, forward thinking vs Conservative (in vision not politics).
