I need to be careful about inviting you to my next party after the homecoming dance—it will look like a scene from 16 Candles after you invite the whole high school.



Head of the Bulldog Club(Maggie) told me that even though the invite said "excliusive," to go ahead and invite all because this would be an opportunity to try and recruit new members. So I did.

Do you have Maggie’s contact info so I can RSVP?

You don't need that FUB - You can come as my guest, and have a 50 yard seat.

I bet you would even provide an escort for me to that seat, huh?

Yeah, I was thinking you might want to invite Bobby Lamb.

Hey, if I were a Mercer fan showing up at a Samford football game, I would probably want to cover my face in shame too. It only makes sense really.
BOE.

So, its exclusive per the ad because of a perk for boosters, but it isn't in reality a perk of being a booster such that even fans of our opponents can attend (with open arms) who have no chance of being a booster? So, tell me how this is a perk of being a booster? Either it is not a perk of being a booster and the message to the boosters is misleading (this isn't going to be just boosters loyal to Samford), or it is a perk of being a booster, but you don't have to be a booster to get the perk, which renders the perk something other than a perk. Or, it is a perk of being a booster and it is a recruiting tool to attract more boosters (though, that's apparently an unstated goal) and SU Dog heard the word "all" and did not infer that since it was a recruiting tool that it was an invitation to "all" who were good candidates to become boosters, i.e at least an allegiance to the school. So now we have an invitation to the boys and girls clubs of America, along with ANTIFA, ISIS, Furman fans, the Nazi party, Mercer fans and Russian agents because "all" means "all" without context. So, either the Bulldog club is winging it with their ad sent to boosters about an exclusive perk that is misleading or maybe they assumed SU Dog would use some discretion given the stated goal of recruiting boosters. This is all a mystery to me, but I'm just a guy on the outside looking in. I will bridle my anticipation for the approaching season until game day. hmmmm, I wonder if I will have "exclusive" use of my seats that go with my tickets or if SU Dog will be given special "invitation" license to fill those too?

Hey - Mercer ‘converted’ me by ‘recruiting.’ I have a daughter looking at grad schools right now...Official Visit @ Georgia State earlier this week. With the right offer, she could be a G-Tr for the Bullpups & FUBeAR could become a Samford Booster. She has eligibility remaining - and she’s taller than at least 1 Player on the current Roster...AND...Jake Fromm follows her on Instagram.

SU Dog is doing it right!

Cujo makes a valid point, although a little too far out. I think the premise was to members who would invite prospects to come. My wording could have been better. Question is Will I see cujo there

I was really using this as a platform to group Mercer and Furman with ISIS, ANTIFA and the Nazi party.

Too busy to watch practice. I won't be seen at a sporting event until it is for real.
