Listened to Goldmine Live a little bit ago. Mike Hill has had bigger fish to fry, but its time to reboot Goldmine Live… Some of my own random thoughts on how to make it better:
- Change the time of the show. Make it accessible to Alums and Fans… Need to keep the students involved but you need to have it in the evening. Just because it was a dud at Ham’s or other places years ago doesn’t mean we shouldn’t make it better.
- Change the location. Hopefully this Heist event (sold out) is the impetus for getting this off campus and getting the city at large involved. Find a place near the light rail line to keep the students involved.
- Get this event more interactive. Live questions are a crap shoot, but use twitter and email to get some life to the event.
- Give stuff away: Have a question of the week winner… A fan of the week… A Junior Niner of the week… Give a mini helmet or a mini football/basketball/baseball signed by the coach, players etc… People eat that stuff up.
- Players- make sure you have a couple each week. Talk about the games and their Charlotte experience… Have a “getting to know ______” segment. Healy wants kids in the community, I’m sure all of the other coaches do as well. Let the kids be the faces of the programs
