    I was thinking the same thing. I noticed Arkansas State coaches wore black Saturday night also. It does make it easier to see a coach or staff member when they are wearing black. We shall see the next home game if this changes.

    Alright. Time to take out some frustration. Georgia State is a dumpster fire. I fully expect Napier and crew to shap these guys up and run all over the Panthers. Hopefully if we run that means we'll only have to throw when we want to.

    WRONG! Simple rules of marketing.

    1. You cannot force consumers to buy a product they do not need.
    2. You cannot force consumers to buy a product they do not want.

    CORRECT: Create a need for attendance without denying fans who cannot attend a chance to connect with your product. Make it convenient to attend. Price it appropriately for the marketplace. Offer undeniable reasons in the mind of the consumer to attend on a regular basis.

    It's amazing how some folks here haven't a clue about how basic marketing works.

    Well I can tell you this, I'm never impressed when they raise prices and say it's commonplace. Yes you have to know your consumer, and his willingness, and ability to pay

    A Blackout ?? Hmmmm, never seen a blackout in a stadium that's not even half full. Can't wait to see the aerial shot of that one.

    I'm with you I'll be there in the same game day shirt I've worn all year. I don't own any black shirts that say UL or Ragin Cajuns.

    Need a "light grey out".
    All kidding aside. Hope it's a decent turnout. This team plays hard and deserves support.

    Let me say this, they are honoring the military and people that have served in the past for this game. Coach Napier said they will wear a special uniform and this is something he wants to do yearly in honoring people for their service to this country. If someone has a problem with that, they need to check themselves at the door. It's not about you this weekend!

    I didn't hear or read where anyone had a problem with it. I think honoring the military is a great thing. Not sure what a black out and honoring the military have to do with one another. Shouldn't it be a camo out with some form of camo uni?

    You asking the wrong person, I'm simply saying I don't give a crap about people complaining about school colors or the choice of uniform this weekend.

    we were at the campus trailer the other week and there is tons of womens black gear, one of my daughters bought a great looking shirt and women love black. Now for men all I saw was traditional colors, so I guess I'll go out and get my yearly red polo. Were also bringing an extra who probably will go to USM or Ole Miss so I guess he'll wear his grey UL shirt that my daughter brought back to him on that same trip. That damn trailer always costs be $100 every time I go to Lafayette.

    that daughter of mine better decide on UL, she probably has more UL gear stashed in her closet than most students. Also, if they don't put UL shirts on all of the seniors on campus Saturday and make sure they know that there are discounted tickets for them something is really wrong with our administration
