Nice mid-week game and four in a row!
Do we get pretty good attendance for our games? I doubt Lamar has more than 20 fans at the game. I attended the Missou at LSU game on Saturday night and I didn’t hear any Missou Tiger fans despite being about 20 rows behind their dugout. You have to have a strong local base of support and the closest pro team from Baton Rouge is Houston.
UH still gets lousy attendance at the games. Fan support simply is extremely low.
Sorry guys; internet problems and being under the weather kept me from updating last night.
Nice win for the good guys. Need to keep winning these winnable games before conference starts this weekend
