Student section moved for UL-L Game

The student section and band will be moved to the visitor sideline for the ULL game to not have shots of empty stands on ESPN2. The sidelines will be closed off to fans.

I think bmarkey brought this point up on another post. I guess someone in the Oxley does read this board.

Smart move. I've been saying they should do this for years now. It will look much better on TV. There is no reason to have one side of the stadium completely empty. Hopefully enough students show up to fill the sideline and the endzone.

Now, the students need to spread the word (get it going on My Space and FaceBook!) and get there in force!

That will definitely improve the visual image of the game. Nothing is worse than having a nationally televised game with an empty stadium. GO OWLS!!!

Especially when the game will reportedly be shown in high-def.

FAU should start busing in students to these games, not only for the TV appearance, but also for the off chance that students who don't have the means to travel to Lockhart just might get hooked and do whatever possible to make it out to more games.

Could the alumni do something like this for the students? Any idea what something like this would cost?

They used to arrange for buses the first few years of the program when the team was at the Pro. It ended up being fairly expensive and not many students took advantage of it. If I recall correctly they only ran about 4 or 5 buses filled with students. The total number amounted to at most a few hundred extra kids in the stands. It helps, but it doesn't do anything too dramatic for attendance. GO OWLS!!!
