Save the endangered Owls

I don't know if anyone esle caught it, but Dan Le Batard was talking about the Shula Bowl on ESPN Radio 790 Monday afternoon.

He said he wants to make sure the game draws 37,000 on Saturday and said the station was going to try to come up with some promotions to help out.

His first idea was to give everyone who comes to the game cash. Sounds like a good start to me.

We need to get everyone talking about the game. Call Evan Cohen on ESPN Radio 760 in West Palm and Hank Goldberg's show on WQAM 560. The more buzz about the game the better.

I was listening too. Any publicity is good. Here are my suggestions and I hope someone from FAU reads this and considers them:

1. Have Schnelly make a trip to the OB and speak before the UM-VA TECH game. There are plenty of Hurricane season ticket holders and fans that remember what he did for that program. Have him invite them out to PPS with their ticket stub for free admission.

2. $1 hot dogs and cokes. This would require $$ and work with concessions at PPS, but they have the cash they would have paid the ying yangs. The marlins did this a few years ago and drew a huge crowd.

3. Mass email Dolphins season ticket holders. Bring that email for either free ticket or big discount on ticket (no more than $5). These are football fans and Dolphins would probably not object since it adds value to being a fins season ticket holder.

4. Free tickets to large groups of 50 or more willing to come to the game. Schools, businesses, churches, temples, youth football, etc.

I know $$ is a major concern, but getting people into seats is critical NOW, worry about $ later on.

One more….They've partnered with the Florida Panthers sales team to attempt to sell tickets. Offer the existing Panther season ticket holders (there must still be some) 4 free tickets to the Shula Bowl.

They have been helping out for all the home games. Basicly they have telemarketers that are calling all the alumni.
