Dear Mr. Moos,
I can't help but notice something that needs to be brought to your attention. Mr. Moos you are famous for putting a picture of Heisman hopeful Joey Harrington on billboard in Times Square New York. You are quoted as saying "There's no place better to showcase than the Big Apple." "When we did the Harrington poster, a writer from the New York Times called and asked why did you put a 12-story image of your quarterback in downtown Manhattan? I said so I could be on the phone talking with you"
If you are about exposure and marketing then my question is, why aren't the TV cameras point towards the ZZU CRU during basketball games, especially if they are nationally televised? Wouldn't it make sense to market an electric atmosphere? Duke showcases this with their Cameron Crazies. Heck, even UW does it with their Dawg Pound. I think our ZZU CRU is much larger than the Dawg Pound and we need to show it off. If I was a young high school basketball prospect watching basketball on TV, wouldn't it be attractive to play in front of crazy fans in a hostile environment? They need to see this as does the rest of the nation. I don't know the rules and if you have to have the cameras pointed at the benches or what, but this seems like an inexpensive move that would create excitement and help recruiting for the university. It would also get fans (watching the game on TV) fired up watching the ZZU CRU go crazy during the games. Heck you might even get larger donations over the excitement. Just a little idea to think about. I know we are not Duke basketball, but people flock all over the nation to Duke to get a taste of what is like to see a game in Cameron Indoor Stadium. People are setting up tents outside Cameron the night before games just to see Duke play the College of Charleston. Many Duke students can't even get into games.
Here are the Cameron Crazies and the Dawg Pound below, both of which face the TV cameras. O' ya and coincidentally they are both ranked in the Top 25.
This is what the nation needs to see.
Thank you for reading this and I hope it helps it proves to be insightful.
PS: Get those Cameras Moved!
