Miniprogram Annual Summary

Submitted by Lanyard Program on August 21st, 2014 at 1:19 PM

so, a few years back i started putting up those miniprograms you see around here during football:

as you can see, from the chart below, readership on these has declined over the years. it does, to a degree mirror fan excitement with the first games after a Sugar Bowl win topping the list of "most reads" along with a few ND and MSU games. Games like Eastern and UMass get pretty low reads, i might not even have gotten them up on time.



anyway, this is basically a heads up that, without a real significant outcry from the board, i am going to trim down the output to just a few a year, i am thinking right now it would be ND, MSU, PSU and OSU. i will try to have the ND one up prior to the opener so that at least the UM roster and depth chart will be correct, but it may have the ND roster info on it.

if there are any comments, thoughts, improvements to be made on this, i am open to it.

First of all -- thank you so much for doing this! I look for these every week so I can print one for me and a few others in my section. Last year, I ended up going digitial most of the time last year because I would forget to check on Friday before leaving work (live in TN and have travel time to Michigan). 

Would you be up for making a "generic" program to start off the year if you don't plan to make one for App St? That way I could keep that or the most recent one handy for games that don't have their own :)

Thanks in advance for any miniprograms you do put together!

Thank you for the work you have done. I always appreciate the miniprograms even when I am not at the Big House.  Will look forward to using whatever you put together this year?

Thanks again!

but I think I've downloaded most of them. I'm sure I speak for many of us when I say that we appreciate the effort you put into these!

From my experience, I always print them for the first 3-4 games. By then, I've learned who is wearing what number and who the starters are. I always print the program for The Game. Need to know the enemy. So, given I'll be at the Appy State game, please do one for the opener. I need to figure out who those new numbers are on the field!
