UR is not known for its school spirit – especially when that spirit is directed toward sporting events. Bleachers are usually empty, even when our athletes are matched against our rivals Washington University in St. Louis and St. John Fisher. However, anyone who was walking in the vicinity of Fauver Stadium experienced a glimpse of what our school spirit could be.”Yellow Fever” was abundant in the stands as the bleachers were filled at Saturday night’s game against St. John Fisher. There students watching from the grass surrounding Fauver. Most students stayed for the whole game and the turnout shows promise for future sporting events.The 7 p.m. kickoff provided early evening entertainment that was free and easily accessible to the undergraduate population. While tailgating is not a feasible pre-game option, most students planned some kind of activity before the game – whether that be going for dinner in groups or attending the Yellowjacket Days celebration outside Wilson Commons. Last week’s game showed students have spirit. The athletic department should make every effort to hold more night games in order to bolster attendance. Although conference opponents are uncontrollable, more local teams could be used as non-conference fillers. Also, if the night games were dispersed throughout the semester, they could become a staple of UR nightlife.
