ANDREW? ANDREW: THAT THE LARGEST GROUP OF STUDENTS AND THE UC PLUS 200 YEAR HISTORY. WITH ME, I HAVE THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR. I KNOW YOU HAVE A LOT GOING ON. WHO IS THE CROWD OF KIDS BEHIND US? THE HEARTBEAT OF THE BEARCATS. THEY DO A GREAT JOB BRINGING ENERGY AND PASSION TO THE UNIVERSITY. IT IS GREAT HAVING THEM WITH US THIS MORNING. ANDREW: A LOT OF EXCITEMENT AROUND EFFORT. WHAT WILL PEOPLE SEE WHEN THEY GO TO THE NEWLY RENOVATED STADIUM? I THINK THEY’LL SEE A SEISMIC TRANSFORMATION ASSOCIATED WHETHER IT IS THE RESTROOMS, THE CONCESSION STANDS, THE INTIMACY OF THE PREMIUM SEATING TO NEW COMFORTABLE SEATS TO RIBBON BOARDS, TO A DIFFERENT GAME DAY EXPERIENCE TO ROOFTOP TELL GETTING ALL TYPES OF DIFFERENT OPPORTUNITIES TO ENJOY COLLEGE FOOTBALL HERE IN CINCINNATI. ANDREW: UC PLACER FIRST GAME IN ABOUT TWO WEEKS, RIGHT? BUT YOU HAVE ACTION THIS WEEKEND? YES, FOUR HIGH SCHOOL GAMES, TWO ON SATURDAY AND TWO ON FRIDAY. WE WILL BE READY FOR THE GRAND OPENING, IF YOU WILL, WITH THE BEARCATS ON SEPTEMBER 5 AT 7:15 AGAINST ALABAMA A&M. ANDREW: WHAT DO YOU THINK IT WILL BE LIKE TO LOOK AT THAT PACKED NEVER IT FOR THE FIRST TIME WITH ALL OF THE UC FANS? WE START LOOKING AT THE GREAT WORK THEY’RE DOING, WHATEVER RECORD ATTENDANCE AS FAR AS OUR STUDENTS — WE HAVE RECORD ATTENDANCE AS FAR AS OUR STUDENTS. THEY’RE REALLY RESPONDING IN A GREAT WAY. WE ARE WORKING HARD ON TRYING TO SET AN ALL-TIME RECORD OF SEASON-TICKET SALES WITH ASPIRATIONS ON 20000 AND WE’RE SCRATCHING AT THAT. WE’RE APPRECIATIVE OF THE SUPPORT OF SO MANY PEOPLE THAT ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO COME TO NIPPERT STADIUM. ANDREW: GOOD LUCK THIS YEAR.
