There is another very important reason for packing the Steg. There will be a ton of football recruits there.
Going to the basketball game today vs Miss St. at Stegeman coliseum. 1:45 tipoff!Go Dawgs!It is particularly important that the students show up and make it loud. Showing recruits that we can support our athletics programs, even through tough stretches, can be an important factor in helping them make a decision. Build excitement about the school, being a Dawg, and the excitement of being with other Dawgs.
