LETTER: Student disappointed by fair-weather fans

To the editor:
Unfortunately, the last two USU home football games were losses. Even more disappointing was watching USU fans empty Romney Stadium well before the games were over. For example, at the USU-BSU game, students led the exodus starting in the middle of the third quarter. I estimate that by the end of the third quarter game, half of the student section was empty. Further, I argue by the end of the Boise State game, there were more BSU fans remaining in the stands than USU fans.
Win or lose, our football team deserves the support of the USU student body through the entire game, unless there is a need to leave early. Our football team will overcome recent injuries, but needs fan support to carry them through the rest of the season.
For the remaining home games, don’t be a “fair-weather” fan.
