Why does it take so long for the band to get to their seats in the end zone during the first quarter? I like the band and they contribute a lot to the game day atmosphere, but it takes them half the quarter to get seated.

Couldn't hear the ref. Southeast wind didn't help I suppose.
That can be put on the shoulders of the GREAT crowd response to the game...

My guess is the band is given a bit of a break to "attend to things" as they have by that time been active for a couple hours.

Had a great time at the game. Winning was the biggest part of that enjoyment, but the horses leading the team out and the band were big pieces also.

I couldn’t find a program. Assume we ran out of them.

Thanks for you and your team’s efforts!!!!

Turn up the sound for everything. I am sure you get a few complaints during night games but it was not That late.

I understand concessions lines get long, and I expect it.
While waiting 15 minutes in line, it would be nice to have the concession area TV's on the Bobcat Game so I can see what is happening.
Or even the radio broadcast over the concession area speakers.
To make this even more annoying, in the second quarter on Saturday all the concession TVs, in the endzoe at least, had the griz game on.

I agree with this. It would also be cool to have the audio broadcast in the restrooms when I'm running my kids to the restroom every 30 minutes.

This is a great idea! It should not be very hard to implement with wireless technology today either.

Can we make the "5 minutes until 3rd quarter kickoff" air-raid siren louder? Where I tailgate, I can't see the south scoreboard, and thus don't know how much time is left. I can't really hear the air raid siren either.

Completed this off of Facebook. Really appreciate the opportunity to provide feedback and great job to all of the event staff!

Its their "half time." By the time the game starts the band has already been in uniform and working for at least 2 hours. They use the facilities and get a quick snack if they need it.

Homecoming for the band is the toughest. They are up and dressed by 8 am for the parade then march in the parade get a quick lunch and are back to work the tailgates and pre-game.

Maybe I missed it, but usually they give updates from scores around the Big Sky. I don't believe I heard it during last week's game.
The did give updates, actually put all of the scores up on the big screen once which I don't remember seeing in the past so was pleasantly surprised and really liked that.

I'm an out-of-towner who makes it back for 1 game a year. I have nothing but praise for the work done by Bethany and crew and wish I could attend more games.

My only suggestion is for Cat/Griz weekend, it would be great to have an event Friday night. MSU B-Ball or a concert in the Brick would be fun.

Not simple, by any means, but it is Montana's Superbowl weekend :)
At least until we get our extra facilities in place I think this is a bad idea. The football offices right now basically become unusable during a concert or other large event being that they are just inside the main entrance and I believe it is difficult for the teams to get in to use the training rooms and such during events.

I remember several years ago when they had a concert night before (I think it was Zac Brown Band) hearing that the coaches were less than pleased with having something like that going the night before.

It would be great to announce score updates for top 25 and Big Sky teams. It was always fun to hear the crowd boo or cheer when the griz score was announced. Not everyone is paying attention to reading the score board. At least announce Big Sky scores before 1/2 time and again at the end of the 3rd quarter.

My group totally loved Gold Rush, GREAT JOB!!!! Please never have it again on a Thursday!!! Saturday at 6:00 was perfect!!

Maybe in additio to a 5 minute warning before 2nd half kickoff would be to have small versions of clocks synced to the stadium clock at each corner outside the stadium and at an high point (stadium rim?) that was easily visible from a distance.. Then people.could.gauge their own pace for coming back into the stadium.

Good idea....or maybe have the clock built into an app so you can just check your phone.
