Exclusive: Mullen seeks fan improvement, support

“It’s real important, and it serves a lot of different purposes for us,” Mullen said. “Obviously it builds excitement leading into next season for the fan base. Reminds them of the excitement that they were experiencing last year during the games and kind of refreshes their memory about how exciting game day can be here on campus.”

“It also is a great motivational tool for our players going into summer practice because they get that game day feel going again before we get into that summer of conditioning, as well as two-a-day practice, which is a really critical time for us,” he said. “They get that emotional rush again about what is about to be coming up in the fall.”
