The casual fan made more games this year than in years past. The building renovation was responsible for most of that.
You guys know I'm all for crusades.. but make sure you're on the right crusade. Marlin has not produced to my liking. It's well documented how I feel about that. However, our men's basketball program is in some extreme disadvantages that the casual fans have no idea exists. It's why I don't rip the guy too much. We have a nice, beautiful venue to play in, yes, but do you guys know how cluster fked the financials are when dealing the the dome? How about the ad dollars? How about paying WBB's bills? Did you know now, UNO won't even come to the cajundome to play us? How about Northwestern? The list is a long one.
I'm not one to make excuses and I'm not saying it's impossible to win big here. What I am saying is that there are substantial hurdles with our "arrangement" with the dome and MBB money. If you guys want to crusade for something, that's the direction you need to head in.
