  1. Announced attendance was 38,728. Fresno State had a record 6.500 students attend the Kent State game. That is over 25% of the total enrollment on campus. https://www.fresnobee.com/sports/college/mountain-west/fresno-state/article279696899.html Students pay a discounted price for football tickets, they are not free. In my opinion, SDSU should be using their low attendance this year to get students into the stadium. That would build an alumni fanbase in the future.
  2. I'm hoping the EWU win was the WTF game for this season. But you never know.
  3. HeroSports may have missed some extension information. I found a different article from the Merc in December 2020 that says it goes beyond 2023 nd 2024. It says an additional extension was given: Brennan has agreed in principle to a contract extension to remain the football coach at San Jose State, the school announced Wednesday. Athletic director Marie Tuite said the school could not yet share the terms of the contract. A three-year, $2.55 million extension signed last year was set to run through the 2024 season. https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/12/23/san-jose-states-brennan-gets-contract-extension-after-arizona-candidacy/ If he had a previous extension "through" 2024, another extension would be at least an additional year after that.
  4. ASU D stopped USC on 4th down. USC thought they would march down and score again.
  5. ASU keeping it close makes Fresno's shutout last week look better.
  6. I may see if I can get a recommendation for a tailor in Boise. A good tailor is hard to find but worth it. They can do more than sleeve and pant length to help someone look good. The one I've used the last few decades closed his shop pre-COVID but switched to work from home to keep working with a smaller clientele. I don't know where I will find another good one when he finally retires. Of course it can take some getting used to when working with a tailor. I first started using tailors for better fits back in the 1980s instead of just wearing a suit off the rack with the cuffs hemmed. It took me a few minutes when one tailor back then was fitting suit pants and asked me if my preference was "dress left or dress right". I still laugh at myself that I did not immediately realize what he was referencing and why it would matter. I was just a dumb kid back then.
  7. My wife and I still just like being around each other. We work to make it special for each other. We enjoy finding ways to spend time together, doing things together like getaway trips, or going out to celebrate events like birthdays and anniversaries. But sometimes you also have to find other creative ways to celebrate. For example, "special nights" that everyone else goes out to celebrate on the same day are such a zoo in restaurants in our opinion that we avoid going out. Instead sometimes we do a special night at home. We set the table with the china and crystal. If it is winter like New Years Eve we set up a table in front of the fireplace. Then we order to-go from a nice restaurant. This year was steak and lobster plus dessert at home for Valentines. I cleaned up/dressed up first then ran out to pick it up while my wife got ready with makeup and a very nice outfit without telling me what she would wear. We could have done delivery but it got me out of the house while she prepared herself. When I got home I opened the wine, lit the candles, turned on our favorite music. She came out while I was plating the food, the effect when she walked out was like seeing your date when you pick her up and she opens the door all dressed up for you. Then we had a nice meal and conversation without dealing with other people or feeling like the restaurant is rushing us out to turn the table. It was a much more fun night. Every couple is different. Then as you age together life happens. You get busy, get comfortable with each other, change, etc. But we think you have to find the little ways to continue to show each other that you don't take each other for granted. We are nearing the end of three decades together and still work at that every year.
  8. "announced crowd of 23,374 (turnstile attendance was 14,356)" SDSU had 9,000 tickets sold/distributed that were not used according to the turnstile. If those were purchased but not used the AD may be looking at short-term revenue instead of what it means about future sales. Then about 10,000 tickets not even distributed/sold, . I don't know SDSU fan game-day walk-up sales but a few thousand of that large remaining amount undistributed on game day should be a last-minute student flash give away one or two hours before a game. Heck even pay some people to walk through the dorms one or two hours before kickoff to give away tickets. Better than an empty stadium and builds student involvement for the future.
  9. I don't dress up as much as I did in other jobs 3 or 4 decades ago. Back then it was almost always suits such as Brooks Bros because of the job type and projecting the correct professional image. These days in a different job I am one of the very few wearing nice pants with a shirt and tie (sometimes a sport coat). Just hard to not put on a tie for work now. Women liked well dressed men when I was single a few decades ago. Worked for me. No surprise they still do. It projects an image about the person. I had one single friend who invested in a very nice pair of shoes he only wore when prowling for women. He said women noticed them. These days my wife and I plan a few date nights every year where we put on our best for each other (then go out or just dinner in). Just a way to let the each other know we don't take each other for granted.
  10. Just confirms what we could see. Lousy attendance for what should have been a big game: "It all added up to 34-31 loss for SDSU before an announced crowd of 23,374 (turnstile attendance was 14,356) at Snapdragon Stadium." https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/aztecs/story/2023-09-22/san-diego-state-aztecs-sdsu-football-boise-state-mountain-west-snapdragon-stadium-jalen-mayden-taylen-green-ashton-jeanty
  11. Brennan was given a contract extension after 2021. This article says he has a few more years: "Currently, Brennan is under contract through the 2025 season, having signed a contract extension in early 2021 following the Mountain West title." https://247sports.com/college/san-jose-state/article/jeff-konya-back-brent-brennan-expecting-better-results-san-jose-state-spartans-football-203792194/ Someone will have to figure out how to fund whatever buyout he has. Otherwise SJSU is stuck with Brennan for a few more years.
  12. ESPN's game tracker now has an AF win at 99.7%. So they think there is still a chance for SJSU to comeback.
  13. Instead of a 13th game, some teams used it to play in week 0 to get two bye weeks during the season.
  14. Basketball school. Fans don't show up unless there is a roof over their heads.
