Last season The Stampede finished off the year with over 500 members. Going into this season, Morris White, the director of Marketing and Promotions, wants to reach at least 1,000 members.
With the success of the basketball team and the lack of seating available in the CFSB, I purchased the Stampede package for $10 after the Tennessee Tech game. I was given a free t-shirt and tickets for the remaining games. I was given free merchandise throughout the rest of the season and the bottom line is, it was worth the ten dollars.
With the freshmen already purchasing their Stampede memberships in bulk, it shows that the enthusiasm is there and that they are anticipating the start of basketball season and football season as well. I am sure that at each of these newcomers had heard about the success of Murray State's basketball program from a year ago and judging by the Stampede sales, it may have been a deciding factor for some on their choice of school.
