    Bingo! People will stay for a chance to win 6-7k. I never understood why they didn't sell 50/50 tickets for football and basketball. Just have 3 or 4 stands spread out throughout the stadium and at the entrance. Make the announcement with 5 minutes to go.

    Give away 1 on-campus parking pass per game to be used the following Sping semester. All students must register before 1st Quarter is over and announce winner in last 5 minutes of the game. Must be present to win. Problem solved.

    I'm sure the University can afford to give away 5 spots.

    ......I never could figure our not doing this based on other sport's success.....could have a different frat or sorority handle each game......SF mentioned its being classified as gambling and with the added regulations, he didn't want to mess up the good thing we had going!!!

    I don't see why it's not considered gambling at baseball but would be at football...it's a fundraising raffle ticket. Sounds like somebody was too lazy to do it.

    Then you woke up and remembered you were CrazyCajun and you were really the angry parent at a pee wee football game.

    A coworker of mine won just south of $11 grand at an Astros game last year playing 50/50. I play now every time I go.

    It's my life's work to consistently point and laugh at your dumb ___ for changing your screen name to try and hide who you are. Two name changes and you still aren't me.

The same can be said for the Lafayette community. It has always been just putting on the event and hope people show up. Then we give them a lackluster event. We've learned nothing from P5 schools that we have played on the road as to what has made them successful. Any wonder we can only get 18,000 fans for our first game. It is pitiful that students would leave the game at half time.
    Florida students get the first several rows of the visitors side including the 50. I think the students could have been moved when/if the stadium got remodeled. There just want a reason to do it when it happened

    Run from your past Crazy...run fast...it will eventually catch up with you. The shame of your cowardice will turn you into an even more feeble version of yourself. You won't ever be me...no matter how many times you change your screen name.
