Our fans and Logan dont deserve this team

Post by AKAggie03 » November 16th, 2014, 10:55 am

What a pathetic showing of support. What else can Scott Barnes and the coaching staff do to earn your support?

8-3 with all the injuries we have had and we look like we are 1-10 right now based on the attendance.

I'll be at the next homegame cheering my nutz off in the cold.... hope you all can make it and show support of this team getting to 9-3.

Posts like this exacerbate the problem. I remember snow games in the early 2000's where there were literally 500 fans in the stands. Did you see Air Force yesterday? Stadium was similarly sparse for a team with a comparable record with a much better history than USU. I thought the attendance could have been worse. I would love a Wisconsin-like crowd but the biggest issue isn't the product on the field. It's the fact that the so called p5 conferences and the media make it seem like anything outside of the p5 is unimportant and people buy what they are being fed. If the national media talked MW football like they do a p5 conference the stadium would have been sold out. It's the state of college football now and it sucks. I'm super proud of this program and what they're doing right now. We just have to keep doing it and keep positive momentum.

The sad thing is that if somehow (we beat Boise, & AFA beats Colo. St.) we host the Championship Game on December 6...we'll probably only get 15,000 out to what would in theory be the most historic game in MOFARS history. :rant:

I was actually impressed with the attendance based on how cold it was and got during the game. I am not going to blame people for not coming when they have young kids and I feel like a lot of fans are young families I guess in GA at least. I was a bit surprised at the lack of students.

Instead of complaining why not, say, come up with a solution? I really can't believe this is a thread when really we are at the highest point of support for the football team ever?

Do you want to search for the threads over the past 3 years that have done just that? It doesn't matter what we do on this board, it won't change until the AD changes.

Were you at the game? If so, was it crazy cold? Many people complain and then we find out they were not at the game. There are many choices fans have to watch the Aggies. One is TV......should no one be able to use that option? I would not bring a young kid to a game that cold nor would I recommend an older person sitting out in the cold.

It takes a solid 10+ years of success to breed the kind of loyalty and enough die-hard fans to draw well on a miserable weather day.

I remember showing up in the second quarter of a sun basked-mid-October game in 1989 and having my pick of 50 yard line seats.

It's getting better, it just takes time and won't happen overnight.

I sat with my 75 year old dad and my 10 year old niece. Neither of them died. Both of them had fun. Just dress for it and come support the team. We're freakin' Aggies. We walk across the quad for 7:30 classes in the winter when the wind is barreling out of the canyon. Cold should be a badge of honor much like it is on the frozen tundra. We laugh at cold.

Seems there is always an excuse for not showing up. Used to be we were in the wrong conference, played teams that no one cared about, that we sucked, etc. etc. etc. Now that those things have been remedied, its ticket prices, lack of restrooms, weather, lack of entertainment, not enough free stuff being given out, etc. etc. etc.

Always something.

I realize I'm not the typical fan but I took the Friday night red eye flight home from Tokyo in order to have the pleasure of sitting in the cold and watching win number 8. It was well worth it.

I was at the game with my 9 year old girl. I had her call all the family members who stayed home because of cold and call them pussies. I obviously did my part for attendance, thank you very much.

I was freezing my a** off at about the middle of the fourth quarter and floated the idea of leaving to junior dirt (9 years old.) He looked at me like I had two heads and gave me a disgusted "no. "

We stayed until the end.

Obviously our attendance isn't where it needs to be but it is getting better by the year. Next year our game against BYU will be on Thanksgiving weekend so we will get big numbers late in the year.

Fan bases aren't built in 4 or 5 years. It takes time. Ask any Aggie fan how long they have been a fan. Most will tell you my entire life
we have a good young group of fans but to get the die cold weather fans it takes time. Trust the process. FyI Kansas had a top 5 team @ home. 10k attendance

It was crazy cold.
I'm only saying that there are other ways that Aggie fans watch games. I'm guessing that the poster was NOT at the game as he/she gave no indication they were there freezing their butts off. Don't complain if you were not there. If you were there, hope you had a great time. But, don't tell us we don't deserve this team. We all do different things to support Aggie sports....donate, help tell coaches about potential recruits and on and on. If being a true deserving Aggie fan is based upon going to a game, then there are about 200K plus fans along the Wasatch front that don't deserve this team.

Can we just merge all these threads into one like the GA is leaving threads from 2012 and then pin it at the top so we don't keep getting more of these? ;-)

In the next year or so we will have Boise and BYU at home in November. That's 2 dependable November sell outs.

Unfortunately those games will be about 50/50 in fan allegiance. I'd almost prefer a half empty stadium than to have a Boise crowd as large and louder than us.

Agreed, but really the money is nice and our program needs all it can get.

Before starting this thread, one must realize the nature of our fans. Many, many families go to these games. By half time I saw many of those families with small children leaving because of the cold. The 75 plus yr old couple next to me left at half time. It's just the nature of our fan base. It's the students that should still be filling their section. However, most of them don't have cold winter gear to last 3 hours. Just keep coming and be positive. Attendance is improved from the days of our loss to Idaho State. Maybe you were there at that game. I was and I'm glad those days are over.

I was at the Stanford vs Utah game yesterday and the stadium was half full...or half empty, however you want to look at it. If even that. And the weather here was great.

looks like playing against the big PAC teams isn't as exciting as they talked it up to be.

BTW, are you talking about those of us that we're there or those who weren't there? Those of us who were there did a fantastic job of showing support. Your verbiage sounds as if you're speaking to us on this Board. Just seeking some clarification in your emotion rant. It's bothersome!!

It was a cold game. I would love to see a full house, but I thought the turnout was ok given the circumstances. Once again, the student section was way empty. IMO the student section needs the most work. I don't know if they actually record how many student show up, but I'd love to see those numbers.
