Ohio Social Media Road Tour Stop Recap

Updated 10/8/2012


Cleveland, Ohio - Just wrapped up MAC Football Social Media Road Tour Stop #7 and it was a beautiful day for football in Athens, Ohio. Great experience at a game where close to 21,000 were in attendance to watch the Bobcats stay unbeaten and become the fist team in the nation to become bowl eligible. Below are the comments from our social correspondents that attended the Buffalo v. Ohio game. Be sure to follow @ExperienceMAC for all of the latest as the tour continues.
Next Stop: Western Michigan at Ball State (Oct. 13)

My time on the MAC Social Media Road Tour was an absolutely amazing experience. It was such an honor to be able to be on the sidelines, in the press box, and in the postgame press conference.  Being a part of this gave me a greater appreciation of the game of football and allowed me to see what goes on behind the scenes. The fact that the MAC is doing a program like this is wonderful, and gives fans the chance to experience MAC football in way that is unlike any other. I will truly never forget my time as a part of this, and I encourage everyone to apply to be a part of this truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Experience MAC was everything and more that a fan could have expected coming into the event. As an alum of Ohio University I was able to have experiences which the common fan will almost never be afforded. From being able to take in multiple vantage points at the field level to the media area of the pressbox and eventually culminating in the postgame press conference. Every step of the way we were guided by Jeremy Guy, who acted as the ultimate host and was able to provide us access we could have only dream of. He, Tom Symonds of Ohio University, and the rest of the Ohio Athletics Dept. all deserve a hat tip for providing us the ultimate fan experience. Without a doubt the time spent visiting Athens will be one I never forget and hopefully it is something many more MAC fans are able to take a part in going forward.

Having the opportunity to participate in the Mid-American-Conference social media tour was a truly special opportunity. Being on the field during pregame warm-ups and sitting in the press box during the game was a unique experience, and a different perspective than sitting in the stands. Tweeting from the @ExperienceMAC account during the game was a great way for us to connect with fans through social media who could not attend the game and make them feel like they were part of the action. I would recommend this experience to anyone that is interested, especially if they want to hone their social media skills.This was an experience I will never forget. I would like to thank the Mid-American-Conference for this great opportunity to participate in the MAC social media tour.
