 I'm a younger guy, 2010 Bama and 99 Tennessee were two of the best atmospheres I've seen at RRS.

2010 Bama is proof that with the right momentum,  RRS can be as good as any place in the country.

Lawyers on a retainer, I had to get some use out of him anyway. Now how many of these licenses are you going to be able to sell if you don't allow the holders of such, the convenience to leave when they wish?

I guess you didn't watch Caddyshack.....

You might want to check your engagement letter on that retainer thing.  Retainers are nice unless you forget to exclude litigation.  Most lawyers I know aren't that stupid, but maybe yours is.

If you're Alabama I guess you can require students to stay or revoke privileges.

Probably haven't watched Caddyshack in more than six months.  Been a busy year.

We've had a couple of close Bama games at RRS in the past decade that were pretty jacked up the entire time.

Games like the 74 USC game, 81 UT, 87A&M, etc, were done in 2-1/2 hours, or close to it. Now, four hours of DVR time barely gets the entire Coastal Carolina game. OU-OSU went 4-1/2 hours. Hard to have a crowd ramped up through the extra hour of non-action. Yes, some crowds do!

Stadium atmosphere, student body attendance, etc, are all factors, but the performance of the team is the #1 factor, and the others are distant in the rear view mirror.

What you are missing in that last clause is the effect the atmosphere has on the team's performance.  Case in point is pregame for Texas in 2004.  Another is Tennessee in 1999.  1981 Texas fits your mold.  No one saw that coming, least of all Razorbacks fans.  We had no trouble finding choice seats in the student section, but Texas wouldn't stop coughing up the ball and by the end of the first quarter it was on!

The TCU game is a perfect example of a game where a pumped up crowd could have had the same effect it had against Texas in 2004.  But the crowd was flat, and the team followed suit.

I admire your support of the players and coaches but the program is bigger than one man.  The crowd at the TCU was active and boisterous at first but the football was an eyesore to watch especially on offense.  Never felt like we could sustain anything.  It has gotten worse.  Sometime it is time to bite the bullet and make the change.  Go Hogs.

Thanks but my intent in this thread has nothing to do with supporting anyone but the team and to criticize our home crowds, which frankly, need a remedial course in Rowdy Behavior.

The crowd was polite and called the Hogs when asked to do so. That will not cut it in the SEC.

I tried a three week jury trial with two Harvard boys in federal court in Nashville a few years back.  Copyright infringement case.  Judge was a Harvard grad, too.  These boys was from South Carelina, ya see?  They kept sidling up to this here judge like they was all in some sorta club.  They said some pert near nasty stuff bout the way I was handling my side of the case.  Purty soon that there judge tells the marshall to scort the jury out while he talks to the lawyers.  He then commenced to tellin' them Harvard boys that his maw's side was from South Carelina and that they was embarrassin' him with there lack a deecorum.  He instructed them boys to straighten' up and fly right and they purty much did from then on.  Onliest time I got upset the whole trial was when it came on my phone that Beckham boy was goin to Meezuri instead of Arkiesaw. 

I tried the case on damages.  The plaintiff wanted $17 million.  The jury gave them something in the high six figures.  Guess I spoke their language.

Does this mean you and Ricepig have made up? You guys are too civil to be up in each other's craw too far!

It would cover the first phone call - as long as it isn't over 45 minutes.   ;)

Actually the guy that is my regular lawyer is a big duck hunter, I learned years ago not to ask him how his morning hunt went over the phone, it was costing me.

I understand.  No one wants to make small talk with me, either.  Lord knows I can talk.
