Default And we thought our student section was bad for leaving

Quote:
New Mexico State is now offering students cash incentives to attend – and stay at - games. According to the Las Cruces Sun-News, attendance has been so bad at New Mexico State home games, that university president Garrey Carruthers and members of the community are offering prizes of $2,000 and $250 and a VIP parking pass to student who are still at Saturday’s game against San Diego State in the fourth quarter.

Pathetic to think a SEC school might have to do such a thing.

Default Re: And we thought our student section was bad for leaving

I have to be honest...... I am 46, been going to games since I was 12 (Football, Basketball, Baseball). I have NEVER left a game early! And believe me..... there were quite a few I wanted to leave before halftime!

Does it mean I am a better fan than some of those that leave early? You damned right it does!

Having said that, I will be damned if I beg anybody to stay, and I damned sure are not rewarding people just to get them to stay! I'd rather give the prizes to the people are in the stands when the game ends.....

If you leave games early, I have no respect for you......

My never humble 2 cents!

The argument can be made that NMSU has the worst football program in all of FBS.

Default Re: And we thought our student section was bad for leaving

It is a compounding problem and all we need to do is get more students to figure out it's actually fun to stay for a whole game, and that will lead to even more kids staying. Once some kids start leaving it gets less exciting, so then more leave, and more leave, and more leave, etc, until all that's left are the kids that really really love football.

It's similar to how football leads to more people staying in town on the weekends. At non-football schools a lot of kids go home on the weekends so it's not as fun to hang around campus, which leads to more kids going home on the weekends, etc. At football schools kids stay around campus rather than going home to go to football games and everybody figures out it's way more fun to stick around campus than go home even on non-football weekends, and that carries through the whole year, leading to better campus life.

Well, if any of the students stayed, they saw NMSU give up 15 straight in the 4th (and 26 straight overall) to lose to SDSU, 26-16. Poor Aggies.

I remember in the 80's it was the older fans leaving to "beat the traffic". Now its the students and younger fans. What's up with that?

Nobody should be given a bribe to stay at a game, if they want to leave let them leave. Students should be docked points for leaving earlier or something. Scan to enter, scan to leave.

You couldn't really police that. If you were docked points for leaving early students would just walk straight past the scanners or walk out a different exit and leave with their points in tact.

Without a doubt, UCF is the worst stadium experience I've ever had. PA was awful. Stadium sucked. And their students were he worst group of people I've ever met. Walked through their main tailgating area, and I don't mind someone yelling the F word at me. It's whatever. But saying it directly to my teenage sister. Give me a break. I bet it happened 10 times within 10 minutes. Most classless group of people I've ever encountered. Very happy when we went up 28-10 to see those pieces of trash leave.

I sincerely hope that we don't treat people like that.

The only way to keep people from just walking past the scanners on the way out is to scan at the end of the game too. Do you know what kind of cluster**** you would create after a game if you made everyone scan out? There is no possible way to do that.

Leave without being scanned, automatically lose points.
