Hey everyone, I never write anything, but I am a religious reader of this blog. I figured this would be a great time for my first post. Like CJ I like the idea of having some sort of panther statue for the players to touch on the way to the field; but I also like the idea of having a distinct field design that would be different from other D-1 programs. Anything we can do to start some tradition at the school would be great. I had another idea to throw in the mix. My wife and I are alums that now go to grad school in Michigan. When we go to Detroit for Tigers games, they have a giant, plastic piggy bank that looks like a tiger. People throw their loose change in it in hopes to have it filled up by the end of the season. All of the money will go to a charity that is dedicated to protecting tigers around the world because they are of course an endangered species. I thought we could do something along those lines to protect our namesake...the panther. It might not fall into college football lore, but it would give the program a little extra good publicity and it would be for a good cause. Because what good is it for a fledgling program to be named after an extinct species...(Toronto Raptors aside, because somehow they made the playoffs with a .500 record).
