Hey Tiger Fans!!!

I want to start my blog entry off with the world’s largest THANK YOU for all of your support last weekend during the Alabama series. I’m truly honored to be a Tiger. I’m so proud of my team, and we are so thankful for your genuine support of this program. How lucky are we to have shared the sweep versus one of our biggest rivals Alabama with all of you!
Sweeping the No. 1 team in the country was extremely special and something none of us will soon forget. In the process, we were able to set two Tiger Park attendance records. The single-game record Saturday when 2,563 fans joined us at Tiger Park followed by Sunday’s attendance of 1,865 lifted us to a record breaking weekend attendance total of 5,933 fans. Tiger fans, you are truly amazing. THANK YOU!
The atmosphere and energy that you created set the tempo for all three games. You make playing this beautiful game worthwhile. Believe it or not, we play for YOU! You showed up in force. We were almost 6,000 strong against Alabama, what a huge advantage for us!
I really hope that you can make it out again to Tiger Park this weekend when we face another huge challenge in No. 6 Tennessee. Remember to bring your dogs to the park on Saturday for annual “Bark in the Park” game. I wish that my three “angelic” labs could be here with me. Since they can’t make the trip, I will enjoy all of your pooches instead! Giny, Lucy, and Josie will certainly be jealous.
Let’s beat the Lady Vols!! Grab a friend and bring them out to the park. Games times are set for 6 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. Saturday and 12 p.m. Sunday.

Geaux Tigers!!
