Marshall is offering a $3,000 incetive for students to come to the spring game

Marshall has rolled out an interesting incentive to get students to show up for the spring game on April 17th. Last year they drew more than 5,000 in attendance (more than Syracuse, Arizona, and Stanford), and coming off a 10-4 season they'll likely top that this season.

Just to be sure, the athletic department has rolled out a $3,000 incentive for students to show up

If a student can run a faster 40 than one of the Thundering Herd players, they'll receive a $3,000 prize to go towards tuition and books next fall. Not only would the three g's be nice, but the real grand prize here would be campus wide bragging rights until graduation.

No word yet on forty yard dash celebs Rich Eisen or Penn State receivers coach Josh Gattis will be in town that day as the top challengers.

 Interesting idea from the athletic department. Props for creativity.
