Mike Leach, WSU Send Out Letter Urging Fans to Buy Tickets to Oregon Game in Seattle

This week Washington State and head coach Mike Leach sent out a letter to their fans urging them to hastily grab tickets to their game in Seattle against Oregon later this season.The reason for the letter is due their fear that Duck fans will greatly outnumber Wazzu supporters September 29.

Their athletic department is making a concerted effort to market this game and this is just one of their ways to get the word out to fans and donors. Here is the letter that Leach wrote:

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.

Sincerely,

Mike Leach
Head Coach

Pretty cool idea on Washington State’s part to have the new coach strike an accord with the fans. From the letter it does seem that Leach wrote it himself with a few facts lines thrown in to appease the university. I know that this type of ploy has been done before with coach’s sending out written letters to donors but this is a nice action.

Will the letter do its job and make sure Cougar fans are the majority in the stadium? Maybe, but one thing I’m sure that it will do is agitate the Oregon fans that live in the Seattle area. It will most likely prompt them to buy tickets just to spite Leach and make sure that their worst fears are realized on game day.
