I would rather work..

Recommended Posts

Was going to take Friday off, stay in Denton and wear out Fry St after... Now I'm just going to go to the office on Friday instead.  I'll be there, but only partially because I'm confident no one will buy the Club Tix from me if I didn't go.

I am very much second guessing flying into San Antonio from Thanksgiving elsewhere on Friday and spending $400 on hotel rooms to watch another potential melt down.

This team and staff deserves 5k in the stands. Good attendance is an earned commodity. I will personally be there, but I expect a poor crowd. And rightfully so.

As a long time NT fan, there have been games when literally the worst thing I did was show up.

I was going to make a fun trip out of San Antonio. It's canceled now.

The fan support/program success chicken and egg argument will go on forever. But we can only directly impact one of them. We should do that. 

Was yesterday an awful loss, sure? No chance I’m going to make a single excuse for that, but the arrow is still pointed up.

I get it. I've been a fan through thick and thin. I know how bad it sucked as a player to play in an empty Fouts and other students or professors being dicks to me just for being on the team. (90s)

However, there have been times when I wished I didn't waste time and money to watch us lose in epic fashion. I'll still muster it up Thursday and drink a lot of beer but I get so angry after games like yesterday. I chalk that one up there with Portland State. PS is way worse but yesterday is on the list. I felt ill watching that last catch inside our 5.

I wasn't going to say it but since it was brought up.....I agree the loss to ODU may not be any where near as bad as PSU but it definitely made the list.

A 7-3 record "earns" 5K in attendance?   

Do you not re-read the things you write before hitting "submit reply"?  Do you type unconsciously?

Goes same for the fans.  Fans don't show up on Thursday in front of bowl officials and we deserve the garbage bowl slot we get.

At this point I hope it is a garbage bowl spot. The last thing we need is for some Big 10 team to roll into Dallas and beat the ever-living shit out of us with lots of local coverage.

15,000 is generous.  Nobody that watched this abomination will make the extra effort to attend on a Thursday

If they watched the broadcast one ESPN3, they saw so little of the actual plays they might come anyway!

The Reddit r/CFB reports of people at last year's Bahamas Bowl sounded like it was a downright party... I'd much rather fly to Nassau than Albuquerque at this point.

We are locked into 1 of 3 garbage bowls due to last Saturday's incompetence. I will not be going to either.

I dunno.  I'm still seeing First Responder Bowl VS BYU or Arizona St.    Both would be awesome matchups.
