Letter: Where were you, Bison fans?

Melroe writes, "If you can’t make the game, give your tickets to your friends, neighbors or give them to a veteran. The Bison ticket office has a very good plan for getting tickets to a vet. You can also give them to a high school football player. Don't let the seats be empty."

Letter to the editor FSA

I was at the football game on Saturday when the Bison played the Southern Illinois University. I was surprised and disappointed to see so many empty seats. Less than 13,000 in attendance. I realize this time of the year may have some conflicts with other events. I have heard many times, "Why go to a Bison game? They always win." If you are only interested in the final score, stay home and get the scores on the sports news. I go to the games to watch these young men perform at a high level of talent and ability. The opposing team always has some skilled talented players as well.

If you can’t make the game, give your tickets to your friends, neighbors or give them to a veteran. The Bison ticket office has a very good plan for getting tickets to a vet. You can also give them to a high school football player. Don't let the seats be empty.

I appreciate what our coaches do to teach these players individually so they can perform in their position at a high level, but mostly how they perform as a team. The Bison substitute players on offense and defense – frequently – but it doesn’t seem to make any difference who is playing. They all perform at a consistently high level. That is good coaching and teaching Bison culture. I hope to see the seats full on Saturday.
