Athletics Director Eric Hyman was in Dallas at annual meetings this week for the Division I-A Athletic Directors Association, fulfilling his duties as president of the organization. He told me today that many athletic directors from around the country came up to him to tell him how impressed they were with our fans as well as our stadium after seeing us play on Thursday night. According to Hyman, the atmosphere the fans created at the game definitely got some rave reviews. It’s great to hear praise like that coming from the leaders in college athletics.
