    I guess with the switch to the new version of the boards I failed to update my picture. I guess now is as timely an occasion as any other to refresh it.

    This was the first thing I thought of when I heard their fans starting to get on the Pack. Was funniest seeing it in person, but even in pictures it's still a classic!

    the kid who got shot at the bridge wore his dac pack shirt for his nbc 10 interview.

    he's obviously a good man.

    thought you guys would purciate this line from Jonathan Tannenwald's piece covering Jerome Allen's recent hire.

    http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/Jerome_Allens_homework.html

    Yes, having a good team will help. But when you go to the other schools in the region, the basketball team is woven into the campus culture. I think especially about Drexel, whose student section is really well-organized, and of course St. Joe’s and Villanova.

    Here's a number I'm sure everybody will be happy about...

    Over 900 incoming freshmen signed up with the DAC Pack during the summer orientation period! We haven't even opened up signups to upperclassmen yet, so that number is sure to grow.

    I'm predicting that the SJU game on December 1 will have way more students than the Penn game on ESPN a couple years ago. And the fact that the Penn game is on the Saturday before Thanksgiving instead of the Tuesday, that game should be HUGE for student turnout as well.

    what would be even better is if we win so they'll come for more than just one game.

    Had a DAC Pack general body meeting open to all students last night. A ton of freshmen showed up, even on such short notice and with a ton of other activities happening on a Wednesday night Week 1, and a bunch of others have emailed us saying they couldn't attend the meeting, but that they want to get involved beyond just being a fan in the stands.

    Should be a great year!

    marshall...

    i have to admire your enthusiasm. i hope you can keep it no matter what happens and that kids will follow your lead all season. the athletic department should consider themselves to be extremely lucky that they've had a constant line of enthusiastic people to keep the dac pack alive.

    i've been whining about this program since march...but i still get excited every november too. no matter how bad things are...it's still the only major sport we have to cheer for...and it's still a lot of fun. it'd just be nice if our team would make it even easier to keep showing up to have a good time all winter.

    Looks like individual tix aren't available to non-season ticketholders until game day. Guess they are trying to limit the amount of Hawk fans that get tickets. But you can get SJU tix as part of a three-game pack -- interesting that the Atheletics Department grouped the SJU game with Niagara and Delaware. A very SJU-related trio of schools.

    Thanks DP. It is depressing that we need incentives to bring people out to Sucks games.

    Yeah, hopefully we get some more people up there. It's tough that it's right before finals week, (it's hard enough getting students to an on-campus game before exams) so it won't be some mind blowing turnout. But if we are able to get 5-10 undergrads going up on their own dime, I'd be happy. I know some of the recent grads are planning to go up as well. And we all know that 1 DAC Packer is the equivalent of roughly 7 students from any other school... :tongue_smilie:

    Thanks Dan. Yeah, like I said at the table yesterday, we completely revamped our email list so everybody needs to re-register.

    Alums, I know I've been talking about it for a while now, but I will have info for you soon. (Been so busy, but I finally have time to finish that stuff up).

    Also, for everybody's enjoyment...

    This Sunday at 1:00 in the Armory, we'll be holding the first ever DAC Pack 3v3 Charity Basketball Tournament. It's open to all Drexel students, faculty and staff (sorry alums, we would have had to pay an extra fee to open it up to everybody, thus defeating the purpose of raising money). Teams will be paired with current Drexel basketball players as "guest coaches" and there will be a slew of prizes for the winners!

    Only $15 per team, and 100% of the money will go to Philabundance!

    Just a reminder about the DAC Pack 3 on 3 tournament tomorrow for any undergrad/grad students, faculty, or staff on here that have time to participate.
