I’m not sure it’s that simple. We had no hype around the program last year, except maybe for Ed, but casual fans aren’t coming to watch a DT play in most cases, although I encourage folks I know to check him out.
Herman was a rock star before he ever set foot on campus and he became the PR man in 15 and 16. CMA wasn’t a rock star and he doesnt generate a lot of energy when being interviewed. He doesn’t do other stuff that generates hype like kiss his players.
Plus, Greg Ward made the offense exciting as well as some of the other playmakers we had like Ayers, Farrel, Allen, B. Wilson, H. Wilson, W.Jackson III. We basically ran the same plays last year as the previous two, we just didn’t do it very well.
I think if Pezman becomes the PR/Hype man and does a good job of it, attendance will rise.
Oh, yeah, there’s the winning thing too.
