If you’re a football season ticket holder, you should have received a Christmas card from Mark Stoops in the past few days. Freddie Maggard took a picture of his card, which included a passionate plea to fans from Stoops to stay on board:
Season Ticket Holders,
Thank you for your continued support of this program and our players. We are working very hard to build a football program that will make you proud!
I am encouraged by the hard work we are seeing from our team as they work to give you the product you deserve. They are motivated, I am motivated, and we know the BBN is hungry! Your passion is felt by each and every one of us.
You are the backbone and foundation of everything we do, and we can’t thank you enough for your support. We need you all in Commonwealth next year…see you there for the spring game on April 16.
Together we will get this done. Go Big Blue!
The disappointing end to the season led to a backlash from fans, which Stoops has tried to mitigate in his interview with Matt last week and now, this Christmas card. Have his efforts to connect with the fanbase had any impact on how you feel about the program going forward?
