Wyoming athletics director Tom Burman issued this statement Tuesday on Steamboat Sound, the official email of UW athletics about Saturday’s home football game with New Mexico.
“We have an extremely important football game coming up on Saturday. The Cowboys have an opportunity to become bowl eligible which is always a goal at the beginning of each season. It’s a big deal for our program and we need all of our Cowboy fans in War Memorial Stadium. If our goal is to become a football program that goes to bowl games on a consistent basis, then it must start with our fans being in the stands for these kids, especially in November. The weather is going to be fine; it’s for bowl eligibility and the last home game for an outstanding senior class. There shouldn’t be any excuses, we need you.”
Any thoughts? I do hope the crowd is better than the last home game with TCU on Nov. 5, which drew only 17,000 and change.
