Re: Updated Season Ticket Count

Has anyone had trouble getting season ticket orders in? I have called several times, left a couple of messages and have not gotten a return call. Hopefully it's just a chaotic week and this isn't the norm. Short answer: Yes. Longer answer: Based on past dealings with UE, the last week of May is a p...

Re: Team Coverage

I agree with everyone, Pat has done a terrific job covering the Aces, and is right up there with some of the long time Valley beat writers. There's some pretty good ones to follow, Todd Golden, Paul Oren, Lyndal Scranton, and Todd Hefferman...and if you like snarky pricks, then the ones in Peoria sh...

Re: UE radio joines Learfield

Bob Buck was the brother of cardinals broadcaster Jack Buck. He didn't have near the success as Jack but I enjoyed his Aces broadcasts immensely. I'd liken him more to Jack's original broadcast partner, Harry Carey. Bob was a real fan of the game and the Aces. He called it like he saw it. He'd let ...

Re: UE radio joines Learfield

I like this hire. Call me crazy, but it looks like the University is going to try and build an actual program. And it's so great to see the enthusiasm from the community and alumni (myself included). And I'm glad they're no longer afraid to raise expectations, which is something we haven't seen in ...

Re: Booster Club

How did the meeting go? Good. Here is a recap of what we discussed. We will have a section at the Ford Center. Section 114. It will not be exclusive, but it will be known as the enthusiastic section. Not only will we originate chants and cheers from this section, it will also be a welcoming area fo...

Re: Sunday Fun

Like many of you, the 65 points Haffner put down on Dayton is right at the top. I too kept my tickets. I think it was Bob Buck who said 20 years from now, 100,000 people will say they were at that game. That is so cool that you gave him one of the tickets. For me, another one at the top was the Dece...

Re: Old Coaches

I don't know why Marty is so bitter.He had a losing record against D1 schools,never made the dance,and the attendance dwindled every year. I must have missed the stories of him being bitter. Certainly you aren't inferring that from the poster saying his house is for sale. Please share. If it has be...

Re: Booster Club

So far, what has been done is pretty much just organizational to get the ball rolling. We did meet with both Mark Spencer and Sarah Solinsky to get their input, and insure anything we do is in compliance with both the university, as well as the NCAA. The purpose of this is to provide a place for the...
