Starts by asking for fans to show up to take advantage of the home field.

Didn't hear any injury updates except that Harrington was sore as expected but fine.

Drink said Reed was likely a no-go on Saturday. Huff 50-50.

One factor that coach addresses is the ST and their ability to put us in bad field position in the last matchup. Hoping the weather factors into their ability to replicate the results.

Had to call the ticket office this morning. Took 45 minutes to get through. Hope that’s a good sign. It really is bad that we have to worry about having a good crowd. Just shows that we really need to work on getting folks to understand the importance of the conference championship and not just P5 wins. I do think the students will be there and the weather looks as good as we could expect in December.

Weather forecast should help tremendously compared to last year. Also, fans have had 3-4 weeks to plan a trip up for this match, assuming we took care of our own business. Last year, I believe we had to have help in 2 out of the final 3 weeks to host, correct?

I expect a much better crowd than last year for those two reasons

Sometimes the biggest crowd does not equal the best crowd. Sometimes smaller crowds are louder. Last year was one of those small but good crowds

Thanks, didn't hear that as I was distracted for a second by people trying to make me do work.

Must be pretty busy around there, I'm on the list for club seats and haven't heard a thing yet.

The most important thing we can do is to be in Kidd Brewer stadium and not the lazy-boy Saturday. Make the commitment and go. Loud and Proud Mountaineers.

Keep in mind guys, no G5 has ever sold out a conference title game. American sports teams are season ticket heavy and rely on planning as fans travel from great distances. Many many fans plan the games they are going to months in advance. NFL and MLS teams experience smaller playoff crowds than regular season.

If you think Clemson would sell out this weekend if it hosted Pitt you would be wrong. Just a reality. 20k would be a miracle, especially considering the distances our fans travel from
