  1. UA to Renovate the JAR

    Maybe that was a preview of how we're going to do the National Anthem this season? That would be cool.

    Really? A soccer player? Noooo
  3. UA to Renovate the JAR

    Dude, you're really going to argue this? You were the one who made a definitive statement that some action had no impact on anyone. And you want me to provide the proof?
  4. UA to Renovate the JAR

    Ok, you didn't say "zero". You said "didn't add any new fans". Any difference? It's still a definitive statement, which is why I responded.

    I'm sure the new video screen will have unbelievable clarity, compared to the old one. In the past, that could have limited some of these other possible uses you mention.
  6. UA to Renovate the JAR

    I'm sure Mr. Babby would be happy to hear your scientific finding of "zero new fans"

    If you think of some of the efforts that have cost us 10's of thousands of dollars, and done nothing to change fan interest, your idea might not be as crazy as you may have thought.

    That's exactly my point. They are going to have to be a little more creative. But as a basic premise, people who have otherwise been uninterested in Zips Basketball aren't going to become interested because they have a new scoreboard. We've been doing it in the Football Stadium for years. So, it's really nothing new. No, it wouldn't compete with Regal Cinema, because it would be free. I've seen a few other potential ideas posted too.

    Maybe so. But, I sure hope they made the investment to try to attract more fans. If they utilize it properly, it might help.

    For those who already want to go to a Zips basketball game.
  11. UA to Renovate the JAR

    So, here's something to ponder this morning. For those who already go to Zips Basketball games, this is a fantastic addition. We'll all love it. But for people who don't have any interest in Zips Basketball, is this an attraction for them? Probably not, if they never see it. So, I'm hoping that they do some creative things to make a greater use out of it than just a video board during games. Maybe have a movie night for kids and families, etc. Also, if Zips Basketball itself is not the attraction for them, doing other things with the board during the game breaks and intermissions might persuade them to attend games for that additional entertainment outside of what is happening on the court. We'll see.
  12. Notre Dame

    OK, now that makes more sense.

    Hmm. I'm testing my late night math skills here, and can't figure out how a 3-7-3 record is to our advantage. I know. That's not one of the best teams in the country that I was watching as our opponent tonight. But since we won, I'm now glad the team we defeated had a bloated ranking
  14. Game 9—Buffalo Bulls

    I remember letting out a big WHAAAATTTT?? when I saw this game on the schedule. But at this point, we managed a NOON game a few weeks ago, so we're a little prepared. Our neighbors will love hearing us loading the car at 6am.
  15. Game 7—@Western Michigan

    My nomination for Creative Image Of The Year on Zips Nation. We already had one guy here recently that could have destroyed a football program forever. That was enough for me.
