FAU and the Curse of the BEAT Shirts

OK so I'm a little superstitious lol, but has anyone else noticed that anytime we make a BEAT shirt regardless of the sport, we lose? I know SGA spends money on the shirts and I don't have a problem with what they're trying to do. People love anything free and if it means getting more people to the games to get a free T-Shirt I'm all for it! However, last year we had "DESTROY TROY" sure enough we were the ones who get destroyed. We had BEAT FIU in basketball not once but twice and you guessed it, we lost BOTH games. This year we've had a BEAT shirt for every home game, how many of those have we won? Exactly!

Now I know a silly thing like a BEAT shirt has nothing to do with how the team plays, or wins and losses, I'm superstitious not stupid. Just seems like anytime we've had a BEAT shirt regardless of the sport we ended up losing that game. I know we only have 2 home games left but maybe we can not have BEAT shirts made up and who knows maybe they'll win at home??

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Re: FAU and the Curse of the BEAT Shirts

I've been thinking the SAME thing,lol. I always think of silly stuff like that. I think I've figured it out. I haven't been able to get a shirt this year and today I finally have a chance to go get one. So if I get one and we win, I'll know that I am single handedly changed the fortune of the football team.  ;D

haha if you get one and we win, then in the future we have to make sure you get a shirt. Even if it means some of us have to fill in for you in class, band practice you name it I'm sure we can arrange it

Why would we make BEAT Troy shirts 2 years ago when we were AT Troy? Maybe some of you guys made them for your trip up there but I'm talking about official SGA BEAT shirts that they hand out before the home games and sometimes at the home games. Last year was DESTROY Troy-we lost, BEAT FIU x 2 and we lost x 2. This year we've had a BEAT shirt at every home game and we've lost… Coincidence? hmmmm

They didn't have them tonight. I walked past the Alumni building and there was some other reception there. Either they're holding off until tomorrow or they didn't make them. My money's on the latter.

Re: FAU and the Curse of the BEAT Shirts

Well no BEAT shirts on Saturday and sure enough FAU won. So now I'm pleading with the people on this board who work in or know people in SGA… PLEASE NO MORE BEAT SHIRTS!

We have 1 more home game left and then starts basketball season and baseball before you know it. I'm begging you now lol, DO NOT make a BEAT FIU shirt.

In the past we've done Bury The Burrow In Red and had I think we had 2 of those with The Rivalry continues on the back. In fact don't know if we've lost to FIU with the BTBIR shirts…. But that doesn't constitute as a BEAT shirt so if you'd like to make those go for it, just nothing that says BEAT, Demolish, Pulverize, Destroy, Kill, Dominate.. well you get the point

Maybe its because we are wearing our opponent's name on our shirt.  Perhaps a shirt that simply says 'GO OWLS' will produce better results.
