    Matt from "Matt and Miller" RIPPING Pollard

    for asking fans to buy tickets for charity. He says we don't have a good bowl reputation if Pollard has to say this, and that fans are obviously not excited for this bowl. He is pretty annoying...

    Re: Matt from "Matt and Miller" RIPPING Pollard

    I am sick and tired of people being upset that Pollard has asked you to buy a ticket for charity.

    I agree with others who say that you don't have to donate a ticket if you don't want to, but you know what...that donated ticket doesn't just help our athletic department, it helps someone who could use a kind jesture in the Pheonix area. A child who may not have much to look forward to each day, a family who might be living on the streets, someone who just lost their job.

    By being generous and buying just one ticket, you could make someone forget about their problems for an evening.

    If I had the money to buy extra tickets I would definitely be buying some and donating them. But seeing I don't it frustrates me even more that people are complaining about this.

    What ever happened to people being kind and generous? What happened to people being happy at all. We make it to a decent bowl game against a formidable foe, and all people can do is complain about how Jamie Pollard is trying to sell tickets to the bowl game.

    Some people will never be happy with anything in the world, but hopefully if people donate a ticket, someone will be happy...even just for an evening.

    Re: Matt from "Matt and Miller" RIPPING Pollard

    I wouldn't get too bent out of shape about this. Like almost any media outlet they find a story they think they can get a reaction from their listeners/viewers/readers and then don't look into all the details. On the surface when you see DMR's title to the story it doesn't look good but when you read the actual story he's asking that people who have the means to do so buy some tickets and donate them to those who otherwise wouldn't make it to the game. But it's a better story to just stick to the title line of the story and say he's asking you to buy them even if you aren't going just so we can sell our allotment.

    Why do people rip on us for doing things that every other school does? I'm REALLY getting tired of that.

    Eh, a media personality being an uninformed jerk about something purposely to try and get more listeners. A little pathetic, but nothing new.

    Re: Matt from "Matt and Miller" RIPPING Pollard

    Here is a message I just sent to Matt and Miller's show email...

    Matt,

    Calm down... We were expecting Texas Bowl or Independence Bowl and we get Insight. This requires a little more planning and a little more pocket change so it'll take a little bit longer for fans to make the decision on whether they will go or not. I bought my tickets this morning because I spent the last two days looking at transportation costs and other logistics before I could make the decision of whether I was going to the Insight Bowl. I was planning on hopping in my car and heading to Shreveport or Houston; however, a drive to Phoenix is much more difficult so it took a little more planning. However, I bought my tickets this morning once I got logistics worked out. This is most likely the case for the rest of Cyclone Nation. I think you AND Jamie Pollard are freaking out a little too early. Jamie is freaking out prematurely with this press release to 'buy tickets anyway', and you are freaking out prematurely by reacting to this recent press release. In the end, we will probably sell between 8-9k of our allotment... which is more than Missouri.... but luckily not enough to save Dave's hair. :P

    That's a well thought out response, I second it!

    It's been THREE days! He needs to chill out! There is plenty of time to buy tickets. He is REALLY throwing us under the bus!
