Popular Post UND-FB-FAN Posted January 6, 2016 Popular Post Share Posted January 6, 2016 http://www.stadiumjourney.com/news/12-29-2015/1303/2015-fcs-college-football-stadium-experience-rankings/ Alerus Center ranked #49, whereas Washington-Griz comes out #1 and Fargodome at #2. The ranking is a bit questionable, though, to say the least. They have the "high school setup" at SUU ranked #20? Alerus Center tailgating is positively mentioned but the gameday atmoshphere is criticized. Personally, although I subscribe to the "win and they'll come" notion, I do not believe UND athletics fully addresses the issue. UND marketing and gameday staffs need to pick it up; attendance needs to improve but the in-game cheering needs to improve as well. No reason fans can't be cued to cheer on all downs when the defense is on the field, not just 3rd and 4th down. The in-game features do not allow the Alerus Center and UND football to reach their full potential. Alerus Center may not be a top 10 FCS stadium, but it should definitely be higher than #49. I would like to see a refocus by the athletic department in terms of commitment and in-game features. Winning will help, but UND athletics can accelerate this process as well; to dispute that is pure ignorance. 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
