    Don't know if it was the same thread, but I saw one of their posters lamenting their "declining academics" as well. They see it, they just don't mention it often.

    Texas State is broken.

    From one of their more knowledgeable posters on the SBC board...

    What you are starting to see is the donors are leaving in droves. Over the past two years, the bobcat club (the arm of the department that collects donations for scholarships) has dropped 50%. For the first time, we have suites available, and champions level seating is also readily available (they are even offering partial season deals for championship level seating for the first time)
    People paying for Fire the AD banners to be flown over the stadium. People kicked out of our game last Saturday with Fire the AD signs.

    Sad scene over here. A school with everything they need to be near the top of the G5 except the right people to run the place.

    Sound familiar?

    Texas St and UL have two things working against them:
    1) The cities they reside in are too small with little corporate presence
    2) most importantly, they are 50 miles from college football national powers.

    Both LSU and Texas siphon off donors, fan attendance and media coverage. If we were even 150 miles away it would be a huge bonus. It makes the job not impossible, but more difficult. That said, I think we have the administration in place to combat these issues. Looks like Texas St does not.

    And UTSA 50 miles away and TXA&M 120 miles away.

We're in the situation we're in because Hud rode Broadway until the wheels fell off and they never developed Nixon, Haack, or Davis, and by the time he was done here, he spent every week throwing Davis, Lewis, and Nunez at a wall to see if one would stick. There's at least some method to this particular madness.
    Fields will enroll in the spring.

    UTSA is a non-factor. It's base and appeal is San Antonio, period!
    UT and aTm have influence throughout the state/region. But both UTSA and Tx State have sufficient enrollment to sustain their sports. But neither has the history nor the invested alumni to sustain support when times are tough. TX State Students don't really go into the games (sound familiar?). They party outside the stadium then leave. As my wife and I walked to the stadium, far too many students were heading the opposite direction.
    Must have been a festival nearby. 🤪

    Coach Napier indicated that there may be some guys who will graduate from HS early and enroll in spring after they sign in December. Fields may be one of those. Of course he cannot publicly name a guy. Hope you are right with that prediction.

    Yep, l noticed that at our game Sat. We walked thru the student tailgate area & saw a very Good turnout of students right before game time. However more were streaming toward their cars than toward Cajun Field. If most of those students tailgating would have gone to the game, we'd have had a full student section. We need to figure out how to get those students into the game.

    Been a problem for years. Was possibly worse when we were in school but that was also at the end of the Stokley era and into the toothpick era. That is obviously the million dollar question.

    Give them back the 50-Yard line Red Zone.

    You're just moving the party.

    I really wish they would do this, so it can hurry up and not make a difference and you can stop posting it.

    Got any ideas you like either from yourself or someone else?

    Someone else already mentioned it; but I think moving student tailgating back to stadium grounds would help.

    And give them back at least part of their red zone. First come, first serve.

    Sure. Win. More often and against better teams. The end. You're welcome.

    I did some quick research and it turns out that in the entire history of all College football, the average Won/Loss record is no better or worse than .500

    No team has ever won most of their games all the time. Every single school has experienced dry spells.

    Your method, if attainable would absolutely work. Problem is its built of unobtainium.

    What is your plan or idea to help through the universally inevitable down times so that the fans are there when a record setting performance pops up out of nowhere?
