Signed, Forgotten Fans of Royal-Memorial
I’m a Horns fan relegated to the Mezz seats at basketball games, GA at baseball games and the nosebleeds at DKR because I don’t make much money. Which is fine. God has blessed me, no doubt. But as I sat in the dark seats of DKR during a night game (the stadium lights don’t reach section 115), I felt the need to pen this letter.
Please consider ways to get those of us who can’t sit at the field/arena level involved with the giveaways and fan engagement.
Throughout games, we watch those with more disposable income smile on the big screen. We watch Tiff’s Treats float down to their laps. We hear the T-shirt cannon rewarding those who can easily buy a few at the Co-Op with more free stuff. Meanwhile, we are ignored.
We wear burnt orange and Longhorn logos same as they do. Don’t let us keep sitting in the dark. Please.

Herman should worry about yards, not fans
I don’t think the students or anyone else has any obligation to attend football games. I wonder if Coach Herman checks out UT plays, concerts, tennis matches or softball and makes remarks about the crowd total?
If this were Kansas, drawing for football what it does for basketball, a criticism might be in order. But when a “small” gate is 75,000-80,000, I’d worry more about what’s happened to Chris Warren’s running totals.

College baseball needs better ethnicity
While watching the World Series, it was difficult to remember/imagine baseball without the various ethnicities on the field. However, a college baseball game is usually devoid of ethnic diversity.
Seems like if you really wanted to go after a College World Series title, you would recruit Central America, among other countries. College golf and basketball have been doing this for several years.
