Please convince me all will be OK at Ford Stadium this week

Postby Dukie » Mon Sep 30, 2019 11:35 am

I'm not talking about the game. I'm talking about the number and training of security personnel. I'm talking about the number and training of concessions personnel. I'm talking about the number (ok, not the training) of the actual concessions, which I expect to be sold out by about the end of the first quarter.

Not a chance.. SMU doesn't know how to seize an opportunity in marketing or event planning. Long lines, abandoned concessions and sold out beer will be the next rant on this board.
What we obtain too cheap.. we esteem too lightly. It is persistence alone that gives everything its value.

You’re assuming we actually have a good turnout...not sure about that

We're ranked! You could spill beer on me and kick my dog and I'd still be happy. Allow a little time for the bandwagon to get loaded up.

The buzz is there. We'll have good turnout.

All bandwagoners will leave disappointed, that I can guarantee. SMU will always SMU

I can only come to one game this year. I may wait it out and hope we get to a legit bowl game and attend that.

I heard Jankovich will be running stadium operations at Ford this Saturday. It will be his only appearance at a non-basketball event at SMU this year.

Today at the grocery store, the checker noticing my shirt commented on how good the Ponies were doing this year. A while later, the staff at the YMCA said things to the same effect while I was working out. Bad news is this was in Austin so they won't be at the game. Good news, the buzz is out.

I am hoping for a Woodstock this Saturday. More people show up than expected, some even getting in free. Issues with planned food and beverage supply and distribution. A hippy and commune who just so happens to have extras so people in need are taken care of. Ten years from now we will all have forgotten the hardships that day and proudly proclaim we were there when the stadium overflowed with fans to watch the Mustangs trounce the Golden Hurricane. FOR THE M-U-S-T-A-N-G-S!!! FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!!! BEAT TULSA!!!

I've said it before and will say it again. We aren't breaking past 80%. I think we will be a lot more than normal but not enough to make everyone go: WOW.

I'll accept a 25k (actual not purchase) fan stand on family weekend.

I’m on the other side of the world, and had I know that’s all it’d take for the ponies to make a run I’d have left years ago...

I can’t make the game, but I’ve been harassing/shaming everyone I know to jump on the wagon and show up...

The official, unofficial, Swiss chapter of the Mustang Club will be tuned in with full enthusiasm!!!
