Sam Houston State beat Stony Brook...next week they take on Montana State. SH remains undefeated. Nice for them I suppose.


in other news Univ of Montana beat UCA 41 to 14 (or something like that). Sorry no links...too lazy.


Ready or not, WAC here we come with a loud bobcat meow!!! :wink: :wink:

Sam's stadium was half-empty, too. I don't point that out to poke fun at them. I just don't understand it. They're undefeated, top-seeded and it wasn't a holiday weekend (when a campus typically empties out). In 2005 BCS was packed for our playoff game on the same weekend. So go figure.

Texas Terror promises sell outs when S.H.I.T. goes FBS.

If they can't pull more folks than that to a playoff game with the team they have this year, then the idea of moving up to FBS would be truly a fantasy.

Ha... funny, I've heard that before... Namely from all the folks talking about us in FBS.

FBS would increase their attendance.

But it's a damn shame they have such a fine team, and their student body isn't out there to enjoy it. I know many Bobcat loyals that would give their left foot to be ranked number 1.

Never said that... thanks for attributing a claim to me though.

SHSU under-reported the number as all folks do in the playoffs due to the NCAA/gate situation. Watching it on TV, there were 85-90% full on one side of the stadium and 70-75% on the other. I approximate 10-11k in the seats.

That is still really bad. 10-11k? For a playoff game?

C'mon Man!!!

when we "under-reported" for the georgia southern game in 2005, which was on thanksgiving weekend, we said 10,000. the second round game, the weekend after thanksgiving, was sold out (as was the semifinal the weekend after that). i just don't understand how sam didn't sell out that game when the team is seeded first, unless the students and alumni really don't give a rip. any idea what kinda crowd they're expecting for this weekend? i hope it's a sellout instead of another embarrassment.

If the guesstimate of 10-11k is correct, it is a 2-3k increase over our numbers from the regular season, which are accurate counts. SHSU has been doing accurate counts of our attendance. Can we be better? Yes. Football has been a major walk-up sport as far as attendance and the athletic department is trying to change that historic means of how things have run.

Crowd looked good on TV, as did the noise. The number may seem like an embarrassment, but I think we are making strides in changing the culture. Hope we can build off of this since we do have many great pieces to success still in the fold.

I'm pretty close friends/coworkers with a few Sam alumni. Throughout the season I've been telling them their team is having a helluva year and they should get back to campus for a game. All of them couldn't care less.
