Thread: How should GSU get students excited about football?

  1. #21

    The biggest problem with developing a pride and tradition among students is that most have not grown up going to games at Southern and just don't have that passion ingrained like a lot of older more established programs. I didn't follow Southern until my fresman year.

    I agree that word of mouth is a great way to advertise the program. While I don't think I will be able to create hardcore fans of most people I talk to, I can at least create interest in GSU.

    For example, many people in my family graduated from Tech and they have been Tech fans their whole lives, so I always assumed that they didn't want to see a GSU game. I simply asked them if they would be interested in seeing a GSU game and most of them said "yes" and will be attending the App St. game in October. While this may not seem like a big deal, it's a start. It will get other people talking about GSU football, which is what we need.

    As far as the students go, I would advertise more. I don't recall seeing any advertisements for games (even playoffs) the entire time I was at GSU. Even the emails that I get now don't get my attention. I realize that email is an inexpensive way to get information out to people, but I believe more people will response to standard mailings or even postcards. Right now, you have to search for or be on the lookout for information, if you want to find it. I think the advertising of GSU has improved over the past couple of years, but it still has a long way to go.

    Really...and you were chosen as an Ambassador of our school?
    I think if you are going to be a GSU Student Ambassador (there is such a thing) then you should be knowledgeable enough about ALL sports at GSU to tell recruits and new students about the game day atmosphere. I'm not really a big basketball fan, but I can tell you what the game day atmosphere in Hanner is like--It's GRRRREATTTT!

    Our Orientation experience this summer was really good, they even had a breakout session entitled GSU Football 101--What every fan should know. Maybe they could incorporate that information into the Orientation class.

    I didn't stay. My girlfriend came into town and I had to meet up with her. This is puzzling though. What makes it so easy to do with him, but so tough to do with the band and cheerleaders? Ridiculous.

    The cheerleaders told them when to say the letters. I'll cut them slack on the fight song.

    I was the same way. I started following GT in 2002. I came to GSU in 2006, and had never heard of GSU football until then. I asked my roommate (1 year older than me), "Are they any good?" He told me we had more natl champs than any other school, and I was blown away. I went to my first game against Cent Conn. St. and was hooked (even with the bad outcome)

    People never grow up. They just learn how to act in public.

    I forgot to mention, one of the male cheerleaders was leading a GATA cheer.

    He told them it meant "Get after them aggressively"

    I almost puked.

    I believe that is what Erk told the media it meant, even tho it had an alternate meaning.
