You must have never visited any other message board of any P4 conference before.gbgreenie wrote: ↑Wed Nov 18, 2020 2:42 pmStrong fan bases build strong programs and keep programs going through down years. Yes, the years of deemphasizing athletics hurt and decreased the fan base, yes it is hard to build it back takes time. But with the leadership of Dannon and more emphasis on Athletics we need to speed up the recovery of the fan base if we want to keep moving up the ladder. Recruits and families see and hear the negativity on this and other forums. They see small crowds that should be much bigger. Fans have to be a salesman for their programs and weed through this negativity. Parents want to surround their kids in positivity and its up to the fan base to lead the way. There are quiet internal ways to voice disapproval, calls, emails etc. to the Athletic Department and the University. Being loudmouth or know it all on these forums makes you look good or bad but does not help the program moving forward. We can all voice disproval to the Athletic Dept. in many quiet ways, but we don't need to air our dirty laundry in public. ULL has not always been a winner but their fanbase has always been more solid than ours, lets take note and learn. Bottom line it takes money to hire and keep coaches and build better facilities, But the Athletic Program must see payback soon to keep investing. Long term no one throws good money down a endless hole!!!
