I didn't know whether or not the AD, or TAF, or the Alumni Association was active in promoting that kind of thing, aside from road football games and bowls.
I'm a member of TAF and a basketball booster. The football team has an organized fan travel system, through TAF, they have their own travel agent set up. Don't think they contact out of town alumni because they probably don't need to. The fan base is out there all over.
As to the basketball team, I personally have been trying to get some some road trips going for away games. Not a lot of interest so far.
Unfortunately a lot of the bball boosters are pretty elderly and I don't think those guys would travel much, even if our team was playing well.
We need new blood signing up for the Tip Off Club to get road trips going.
I've tried to get the basketball operations involved, but there are many aspects where they can't help. Can't buy blocks of tickets on our behalf, can't give up any tickets provided for player's families, even if they know some may not go.
And sucky as this sounds, they can't even get player's families tickets together in one block either.
I'd love to get 45 ppl committed to go an away game. We can fill a charter bus then and lessen the travel costs.
