    Hi everyone, I am the founder of C-Unit Football (formerly known as the Folsom Frenzy). I wanted to ask everyone for your ideas for the CU student section for both football and basketball.

    MOAR STUDENTS!

    I know you guys can't control that, but man it would be nice. Also that viking clap they did during the 2nd quarter was awesome. More of that.

    Welcome to the site though. Glad to see the social media outreach expanding for the CUnit.

    We asked athletics if we could make an AllBuffs account, but they wouldn't let us. A lot of our exec board team is already on the site! Also, glad you liked the clap. Looking at doing it every game!

    Any chance that clap could be done right before kickoff? Get the whole stadium involved.

    Glad it will be done every game, probably could even be done more often. It looked really cool this past Saturday, especially for the first time.

    Congrats on the chant at the second qtr during saturday!! everyone around me liked it so hopefully you can keep gaining steam. Maybe have a group of students welcoming the players on the buff walk would be cool.

    Buff Walk would have been a thing if we weren't already tied up in promoting something else. It'll probably happen for the Oregon State game.

    It's tough to do before kick with all of the things that the marketing dept. already has in place. i.e. Ralphie, player hype video, coin toss, etc.

    That isn't a new idea.

    Got an idea on how to do that?

    That would require fans showing up on time. Not trying to take jab at anyone but if there is anything I've seen its that the fans don't get to their seats on time.

    Is there video of chant from this weekend?

    I was recently watching the CU/Oklahoma game from 1994 and the student section wasn't 100% full at kickoff. It was a night game and the team was ranked #4 in the country. To a certain degree, students are students. Getting them there at all is our priority. I am thrilled with the numbers we got the first two weeks, and I think showing up on time comes more with success than anything. Look at basketball in 2012/13 for evidence of that.

    I may have missed something, and I recall there were issues with taking donations for giveaway t-shirts, but has there been any discussion about selling C-Unit branded t-shirts in the bookstore/team store? Could be a good fundraiser, while also helping build C-Unit loyalty among current students.

    I was actually very impressed with the student showing against ISU. Was expecting it to be pretty empty.

    Perhaps if they knew that clap thing was going to take place just prior to kickoff they'd make more of an effort to be there.

    Just sayin'

    What if the announced kick off time wasn't the actual kick off time. Is that illegal?

    Doubt it. Ralphie running is pretty cool and most students miss it.
