UT Baseball Weak on Sponsors

At the UT vs. PVAMU baseball game this weekend at Disch-Falk, there was something missing on the field. Where are all of those pesky advertisers we all love to hate?! It seems as though advertising has become so integrated with our lives that we sometimes miss it when it’s not there, or is that just me?


The scoreboard had plenty of ads plasters around it, but where were the ones in the outfield? Around the dugout? On the cups for god sake! It’s been a very long time since I have seen a cup at any event without the words Coca Cola printed on it. Now, whether this lack of advertising is because UT didn’t want any or they just couldn’t find any are two completely different stories, but it’s almost an eerie feeling I get if it’s surrounding me at every popular event.
