Cool, but is this being televised?  It doesn't say anything about this being on ESPN.

Radio broadcast, doesnt say anything about TV.  Nonetheless, if we can get alot of fans to go to this it should be a nice way to get people excited about the upcoming season.  Maybe even put a big donation bin for the stadium.

Very cool :)

Here's a question though:

Why not have this thing on the new track??

I don't know. Maybe it's easier to broadcast from the field in technical terms. To do radio, you need a phone line (which could be run from the basketball arena, but maybe easier from the Ox?) Or maybe they'll be broadcasting from the Founders room and overlooking practice?

Either way…Turning this into a College Gay Day experience with signs and everything will stick in Herbstriet's mind.

Just think…on opening day when they are doing their picks and he has to pick FAU v. Texas and he says something like: "I was doing a radio show at their school and they had hundreds of fans with painted faces, screaming chants and holding signs. If their fans that are in Austin are anything like the fans on that field, Texas will lose this game both on and off the field."

p.s. If y'all are going to chat….everyone learn the fight song!!!

This would be a lot cooler if we had broken ground for the new stadium and this event was happening there.

Ugh…

Like things, love people.
