I would love to see some $$ spent on the Softball program. I really like the direction the team is heading. The stadium could be really nice with a few upgrades. Which would draw some more players. College Softball May be the 3rd most exciting college sport behind Football and Men’s basketball. Definitely the most exciting female sport.

I agree with you on most of those points. However, personally I think our women's basketball team is the most exciting female sport on campus and for me, is ahead of our men's basketball team for entertainment. Football is still #1 for me, but women's basketball is my #2. Softball is still a lot of fun to watch though.

Drop Track and Field, move the bucks to Baseball and Softball and call it a good day at the office. We are Putin's Bitch. Oh wait, wrong thread. We are patsies for the Dakotans in T&F.

Agree, I would love to see more money spent on softball and baseball, both had good seasons last year, although they both layed an egg in the conf tourney. Do they still not charge to attend a softball or baseball game?

Never been to a baseball game, but I know they don't charge for the softball games.

Football and Basketball are the only Western sports that charge admission.

Wow, that is amazing, I think it was brought before but why not charge 2 or 3 dollars, something to maybe bring in a little extra money

I wou;d love to see the AD have a yearly "State of the Athletic Department" address/forum on campus where she could talk about what is happening now and on the horizon and answer some tough questions.
