    In response to the concession stand inefficiencies, the school ordered up 18 more points of sale for Saturday's Oregon State game, bringing the stadium total just above 100. They've also brought on 34 mobile vendors, known in the business as "hawkers."

    "At Hawaii, we did not perform well off the field," George said in an interview Friday. "What it looked like to me was that the long lines didn't go well. And our goal is always to provide the best experience, with time that it takes people to get inside the gates, the quality of our food, what we're doing with our video board, our speaker system, our in-game promotions.


    "All those things add to the fan experience."

    Rome wasn't built in a day. Great to see that RG is focused so heavily where it matters, though. Job #1 was to do what he could from the AD side to help improve the football program with facilities and fan support. Job #2 was to drive revenue from football games with more premium seating options, better concessions and improved attendance through a much better game day experience. He's on point with this stuff. Very good AD so far in his tenure.

    I went to get a lemonade after half time. There was no line.

    At the Hawaii game I waited about 10-15 minutes.

    I rarely read the BDC anymore because their mobile website is slow as hell, and their app is a joke because it either hangs or crashes every time I try to use it.
