I want to hear back from the few of us OFD'ers who are going to the Purdue game, how big of an impact you see in this initiative, and most importantly if the yellow jackets stop being cheerblocks. Good comment on the article above:
Pardon my skepticism, but I’m going Missouri on this one…SHOW ME! I love the idea. But, when I no longer hear the words “down in front” followed by a yellow jacketed usher coming after me, then I will believe the contents of this article.
I hope someone told the ushers, but just in case no one did, I’m printing this out and bringing to all ND home games I attend.
If the University is serious, then they need to market this at the game. Giant Take a Stand posters throughout the stadium would be a good start. Maybe the ushers could welcome us with: “Welcome to Notre Dame Stadium, please stand and make some noise”.
