Frank can we get the Athletic Dept. to try to put in a better effort in selling tickets to the home games. Lets fill up the stadium,and have a home field advantage. The students don't come or don't stay long if they do come. Market this great product to those along I-91 and Rt 2.Sending out season ticket renewals is not going to fill the stadium. Target new people!!
