Letter to the editor | Do your part to rev it up

September 7, 2013 

The electricity needs to be put back into Beaver Stadium on game days. Here’s how we can all do our part to help.

General ticket-holders should show up, tailgate and not miss kickoff. Empty sections in a stadium look awful and are embarrassing.

Students should do the same and, if their Friday nights prohibit them from doing the above, they should sell their tickets for face value to students who would love to have that chance — regardless of how they feel after a night out.

I think Blue Band Director Richard Bundy should stop directing the band to play “Seven Nation Army” by the White Stripes. His work with the band is enjoyable and appreciated, but that song has reached overkill level.

“Dancing in the Moonlight” should be deleted from the game-day playlist. When that came on last season during a timeout, while losing to Ohio State, everyone should have left the stadium. Less King Harvest and more AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses.

And everyone should remember where we came from. Change is part of life, but our history doesn’t have to be completely erased.

Remember being the greatest show in college football with the best student section in the country?

I had the great privilege a few weeks ago of meeting and thanking the man behind the ideas that turned Beaver Stadium into what it once was.

Let’s find that passion again and make Beaver Stadium the place we all know it can be.
