$1 beer night like Creighton would get me to Milwaukee.



Are you planning to drive back to Chicago after all of those $1 beers?   :)

Selling our the upper deck does barely anything for Marquette other than look cool.  Their stadium deal is not ideal.  Concessions split is brutal.  The Bucks get an extra 3,000 upper tank fans and that pure profit for soda & popcorn…for MU it’s maybe another $15,000-$24,000 in tix revenue and is it worth the squeeze it took to get there?  Doubtful.

Where MU could improve is game day ops.  They’ve reverted back to Badgers basketball. Honor some faculty, tone down the hip-hop, have the band play at inopportune times, etc. 

Bring back TC as AD in Waiting and watch the Game Day Ops go back to pure 🔥🔥🔥🔥.

Game day ops is probably around 147th on the prioritized list of things an AD has to deal with.

Not AD TC, it would be #1.

Have a scoop only section.   Put up barricades and fences around it to keep the sections around it from getting hit with flying debris.

Ooooh, and this one.

Put the family section (no booze, no swearing) in the opposite corner.

i highly doubt MU is concerned about the beer prices and/or want to link that with some marketing ploy. 

    does MU still have that lay-up, free throw, half court shot for tuition thing?

   do something geared toward kids, grade school-ish-half time b-ball game, 2 half court games going on at same time

    basketball camps-one or two day thing

         didn't MU use to send the players out to different high schools to practice with a team for an hour or so

News portion on the local news in the morning gives no mention of events for MU, Admirals, Wave or UWM. It's always Bucks. I wonder if the talking desk heads even know MU plays at Fiserv. This morning they had someone in front of Fiserv, talking Bucks. Nothing MU can do in that regard.

MU's attendance (and place) will be down again this year due to Central Michigan, although the profit will be up (as they charged STHs the $$$ for the game). With liquor now being served, might MU look for different ways to utilize The Al for basketball for different events (Alumni games, return to (paid) open practice events)?

It seems like Shaka is not a big fan of the events as it takes away from focus but business is business.  I see that session 1 kids camp is already sold out.  What about an adult camp?  I'd pay to watch some wealth belly Scoopers battle it out:  MOPES vs. COLES in round 1.

I'm in. Once I get used to the shooting backdrop (it makes a difference, I hear) it's on.

Sports is the lowest priority by far for any newscast.  Weather is #1.  Lance, TVV, Dario + Steph would love to cover MU more but they get such a small amount of time.  Look at any statioj promo for their news team, most leave their sports guy / girl off.  Just not a priority -- except Packers and maybe HS.

Creighton’s $1 beer night is only up until tip off. So even if you get there right at gate open I doubt anyone is drinking more than 3 beers with the long lines I’m sure they have.

Speaking of Dario……when is that guy gonna get a sportcoat that actually fits. He reminds me of Farley’s fat guy in a little jacket bit.

I get that (aka my screen name) LOL, yet I'm not talking about a breakdown in sports on the news part. Just talking when they do a camera shot of Fiserv while they talking about the weather, can't get a one liner that MU plays tonight, like they do for the Bucks. 3 words can't be too hard.

I believe the marketing department could do more. I also believe that there is truth to the belief that marketing an unattractive product is wasted money. Winning is ultimately what will fill the seats. No amount of emails or giveaways was going to drive attendance in a post COVID/Wojo world. As Shaka wins more and more, I think you will see more and more from the marketing department. I have seen incremental improvements to marketing as the team has won more and more. Win some games in March and I think you will see a big increase in attendance and marketing efforts.
I agree with this analysis.

Plenty of MU alums in local media.  Does Marquette ever touch base with them and ask for some love?

Alum Brad Galli manages to slip Marquette into his Detroit sportscast with regularity.
