Improving the Experience

Okay, so since my Arizona Wildcats are playing Iowa tonight, I thought I'd go back and find this Greg Hansen article that I loved reading a month ago. Here's the article

It talks about the strategy side of college football, and building a football culture in Tucson. He's got a variety of great ideas to improve the fan experience from expanding tailgating hours, moving the visitor section, to marketing the Bear Down Legend. Mike Stoops is building a great program. But let's face it, we're not going to be able to generate the kind of football culture that has blossomed in the south or Midwest. However, that doesn't mean we have a lot to improve upon in the desert. I think if our athletic department took some of these ideas to heart, it would make a big difference. Bear Down!
