    Fixed that for you...good news is beer lines shouldn't be that long, and you are guaranteed a bar stool in the beer garden.

    With such bad attendance, Dr 7 Wood should probably fire Boots Donnelly and Andy McCollum...

    Lol. There are a few things I remember and this is one of them. I believe it was a DB who said it. Funny.

    As a mid-life MBA and grad school MTSU alum, Homecoming has no special significance to me since I’m only 14 years removed from graduation instead of 40.
    If they want my support they need to do more than “compete.”
    Shoot me.

    They should take Johnny Red Floyd off the stadium too and just call it MT Stadium. MT can be the brand AND a description of the attendance.

    Are you going to Bethesda or their Frederick campus (assuming Bethesda)? Either way, good luck Mike.

    Screw em. FIU gets 3 people at their games and FAU looked like us last week on CBS sports. We ain't the only ones going through this. Who goes to G5 games when it's raining like hell with 19mph winds? That weather is gonna be bad. WKU looks good on TV cuz they have the smallest stadium in FBS. 18 - 20k seating. It was smart for them to do it actually, but that's like 65% of our stadium. It is what it is. LaTech is winning and their place always looks empty. We ain't alone.

    At least the athletic department is marketing the game; in fact, they have marketed all the home games with a little more focus than in years past
