    This is a big deal that was too long in coming.

    The type of home crowd we have starts with the students and they determine how tough a place Folsom is for opponents.

    I'm very excited about this.

    About time. Everything helps and a crazy student section is something that the players feed off of.

    Love it. They were a big factor in turning around Bball excited to see what they can with Football.
    It might be harder to effect the game in Football but there is still a definite impact.

    SEE: Texas A&M for a college football version
    SEE: Seattle Seahawks 12th Man for NFL version

    It can be done, if you have a committed group of fans.

    During the McCartney/Weasel/Barnett years, the student section was pretty damn good.

    That's because we were winning and we could buy beer in the stadium. But mostly because we were winning.

    I remember that game, being in the student section and mocking him. That was awesome!

    Student Section was good all the way up to 2005. 2006 is when the downfall started and students started showing up later and later and leaving earlier and earlier... all starting with Hawk and the dismal football that we've seen the better part of the last decade.

    The 12th man at A&M is a pretty solid student section. They have nailed the coordination thing with the Midnight Yell. I know their cheerleaders are weird and all male and look like janitors but that is besides the point. For being very cult like they are pretty loud and energetic.

    I think that Oregon's a great example. Not the biggest stadium, but among the loudest.

    Excellent news. A rocking Folsom (been a while, I know) punches above its size in terms of atmosphere/noise. Been in many stadiums that seat 50s and 60s that don't match Folsom on its day. Going to take time, but here's hoping this takes off in unison with CU football ascending

    They also sent out an email to students looking for help. Wish I could do it, but I'm not sure which games I'll be able to make. Very happy to see this happen finally.

    Did you get young alum tix this year or are you playing it by ear with single game tix?

    It's my work situation and what days I'm scheduled, but I've still got one semester left so I still got the student price. If I get the job I want I'll be good to go but otherwise it's gonna be a week-by-week thing.

    For some reason I thought you were done. How does that work with hoops tickets? Are you able to get student tix for the season even if you're done in December?

    I kind of wish I was done, but at the same time I'm not. I was able to buy my student tickets a few days ago so hopefully they work, otherwise idk what I'm gonna do for basketball.

    One of my best friends up here is the guy that has set it up and has his name signed at the bottom of the email. I am helping him with the leadership aspect of it. Like the C-Unit was for basketball this will take time, but with an improved product on the field it will do wonders. I'll keep you guys updated on the progress and what is talked about.

    Bring back marshmallow fights. Or something else at half time to keep people occupied. It's so frustrating to see the student section empty out at half time to go drink at tailgates/dorms/apartments.

    Also, please don't cave on the "**** em up, **** em up, go CU," cheer. I'm sure there will be pressure to end that cheer if there is an official student-run organization to complain to, but it's a CU tradition that should not die.
