On September 29th Washington State will take on Oregon at Seattle's CenturyLink field, and Mike Leach wants to make sure that the crimson and gray outnumber the green and yellow in the stands.
The Wazzu athletic program has been reaching out to season ticket holders and donors to make sure that their presence is felt in Seattle when they arrive, but just to be sure, Leach addressed a letter to fans to be sure that they understood the importance of their presence in Seattle.
The letter reads:
Dear Cougar fan,
On September 29 our football team will host the Oregon Ducks at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. I can't wait to see our fans in the stadium for this game and for the entire 2012 season. As a team we are excited and focused on the upcoming season and are currently working to improve in every area of the game.
Since the Ducks are so close to Seattle, I have heard on multiple occasions that there will be just as many Oregon fans at the game as Cougar fans. I refuse to even fathom that notion. I have great confidence in our fans and I know on September 29 CenturyLink field will be full of Crimson and Gray.
This is our game, Seattle is our town, and you as a Cougar fan have exclusive access to purchase tickets before they go on sale to the general public. Once tickets go on sale to the general public on August 4, we will not be able to control who buys after that date. I want to give you exclusive access right now to get online and get your seats secured. Bring your friend and family as we continue The Seattle Game tradition. Thank you for being on board as we build something great.
Hey, sometimes the pot needs to be stirred just a little bit.
