Out of touch

My fellow Niners,
I’m a FSL holder flying in from out of town just for the inaugural game. Sadly I wasn’t able to make the spring game and Campbell will probably be the only game i’ll make this year. Being as how i’m so far away, I try to skim the boards here, but am desperatly out of touch with the football program.

I am sure all of my questions have already been answered somewhere on the boards, but can any of you be able to help give me a rundown of the football program?

  • what offense/defense are we running?
  • standout players to watch?
  • what’s Coach Lambert’s style? drill-sargeant/calm cool/@ss clown/etc.?
  • what time will the tailgating start?
  • assume zero-alcohol in the stadium as it’s on campus
  • will jerseys/clothing be sold inside the stadium?
  • what else am I forgetting to ask?

Been dreaming about this day since 1997 when I first stepped foot on campus. Thank you to all who made this possible.

Fast paced offense, 3-4 defense I think.
Matt Johnson, Austin Duke, Larry Ogunjobi
Lambert is layed back (aww shucks guy----class act)
Tailgating starts at 9:00 on campus.
No alcohol in stadium, but is allowed in tailgating lots of course.
Jerseys, t-shirts, souvenirs will be sold in several locations within the stadium.

-We are running the spread offense, similar to what Coach Mullen ran at WVU with a QB that can run and make plays.

  • We are running a 3-4 defense. The reasoning I have heard for this is that it is easier to recruit LBs than it is to find 2 quality DTs.
  • Players to watch- QB Matt Johnson, RB Alan Barnwell, WR Austin Duke, SS Des Cooper (from WF), NT Larry Ogunjobi to name a few.
    -So far Lambert’s style has been pretty calm, but that could change when the real games start.
  • Tailgating is only allowed 4 hours prior to kick-off. WE will see how strict this policy is on 8-31.
  • No alcohol sales at JR Stadium
  • They have a ‘Teams Store’ set up in the stadium

Tailgating starts at 8am, 4 hours before.


What’s going on in this thread?

Also this:

Im out of time (time)
But I’m out of my head
When your’re not around

I will be there with you! Worst case, they are there blocking the entrance and we can have a waiting in line tailgate party. New Traditions!!!

YES! Exactly what I was going to post.

Now that would be funny!!! Make us park at the union like they did for the spring game and we just start tailgating there.

I will never forget sitting there with my mini cooler watching that parking lady make y’all wait to the point of blocking traffic in the street at 7:30 lol

Shake it up is all that we know
Using the bodies up as we go
I’m waking up to fantasy
The shades all around
Aren’t the colors we used to see
Broken ice still melts in the sun
And times that are broken
Can often be one again
We’re soul alone
And soul really matters to me
Take a look around

You’re out of touch
I’m out of time (time)
But I’m out of my head
When you’re not around
You’re out of touch
I’m out of time (time)
But I’m out of my head
When you’re not around
Oh, oh-oh, oh
Oh, oh-oh, oh

Reaching out for something to hold
Looking for a love
Where the climate is cold
Manic moves and drowsy dreams
Or living in the middle
Between the two extremes
Smoking guns hot to the touch
Would cool down
If we didn’t use them so much
We’re soul alone
And soul really matters to me
Too much

You’re out of touch
I’m out of time (time)
But I’m out of my head
When you’re not around
You’re out of touch
I’m out of time (time)
But I’m out of my head
When you’re not around
Oh, oh-oh, oh
Oh, oh-oh, oh…

(Out of touch)
Out of touch

You’re out of touch
I’m out of time (time)
But I’m out of my head
When you’re not around
You’re out of touch
I’m out of time (time)
But I’m out of my head
When you’re not around…

classic H&O, just sat here at my desk whispering those lyrics. pitiful really. maneater on deck?

It’s not pitiful to enjoy the hit-machine duo of Hall & Oates.

Best H&O song evar!!!

I would have thought you more of a “Private Eyes” kind of guy

Thanks to all for the updates.

Looking forward to this trip. Haven’t stepped foot on campus in +8 years.

Another stupid question, any policy on camera/video equipement in the stadium? Side effect of living in asia so long, I can’t go anywhere without my camera.

Good luck finding one of us not taking pictures. As for video, I doubt you’d have a problem with that too, as long as you’re not doing some professional stuff.
