“I was impressed by his running ability and look forward to seeing what he can do for the rest of the season,” said Patrick Ray, who has been a fan of the Cougars since 1988. “The snaps were better. I liked how Tune led the scoring drive right after halftime. We needed that coming off the last three games.”
“When (Kelvin) Sampson took over the basketball program, it was in about as bad a shape as one can get,” Ray said. “He got us out of that hole, but it took time. Now, we have a great new arena and nearly sellout crowds after two NCAA Tournament appearances. We have to keep that energy for the football program."
This is a true statement from the article: “It is disappointing fans would not support the players, regardless of their record,” Lawrence said. “If they saw the excitement and passion of the players at UNT, it was clearly seen that they were giving their best. I see no quit in the team, so fans should not quit on them.”
Those who decide to stay home Saturday are within their rights. I just wonder how many will later claim to be huge fans and even claim they stayed the course and didn’t miss a game.
