Especially when the guy making that observation devoted himself to making the on campus game day experience less enjoyable.
The problem now is that many of the solutions to this…
… cost money, whether it’s installing wi-fi, so that fans can “communicate in real time with somebody on the other side of the stadium” or better scheduling, which would mean more home-and-home series. And the longer ADs wait to do something about it, the risk they run is that more people are going to feel like this:
This worrisome dynamic was evident last Saturday, when Georgia hosted North Texas on a drizzly afternoon and one tailgating troupe near Sanford Stadium kept dry underneath tents. Lounging in lawn chairs, with a makeshift bar to their right and their buffet and beer-pong tables behind them, students who said they had tickets to the game being played across the street instead were glued to two flat-screen TVs. “There are a ton of people who prefer this,” said Sam Little, a junior at Georgia. “They can actually watch the game instead of deal with the crazy atmosphere.”
Why do I get the feeling that no matter how things go, the only folks that are going to come out ahead are ESPN and CBS?
