"Fritz and the Footballs" is an episode of Ferris State Live, produced by the fall 2009 TVPR 499 class at Ferris State University. Produced on September 21st and aired on September 24th of 2009, it is the second episode of the 2009-2010 season.
Leah began by welcoming Fritz, the vice president of academic affairs, to the show. He responded by informing Leah and later Scott about just how much fun it was for him to transition to Ferris from over in Wisconsin. Afterwards, Fritz commented on how impressed he was by the Big Event, and the volunteerism involved with it. After a few questions, he elaborated on how he runs into someone he knows quite often at the grocery stores.
All About Student GovernmentEdit
Claire mentioned to Leah all the various events that she oversaw as Student Government president. When Scott inquired how one would get involved, Claire suggested the best way to get information was at the Student Government front desk, or at the website. She quickly made a plug for "Blues and Barbecue," stating that it was founded in 2008 as a way to raise scholarships for students in honor of a deceased former Student Government member.
Leah followed up by talking about the Big Event some more, mentioning that there were over 700 volunteers involved in it. Claire reminded Leah that Ferris' Big Event is inspired by the Texas A&M Big Event. She finally mentioned how grateful the townsfolk were, and finished up by promoting the Holiday Food Drive.
Scott began with the Grand Valley game, and Sandy was pumped for Ferris football while wondering what kind of season the team would have. He mentioned that the Bulldogs had a rough start, losing in a 17-10 game.
Sandy then argued that the Bulldogs needed to forget about their loss to Grand Valley, and take out their aggression and frustration during their then-upcoming Northern Michigan. He also discussed the Cross-Country event, and mentioned that the volleyball team was having more luck than the football team. Scott and Sandy finished by discussing Heritage Month and some of the festivals happening around campus at that time.
