Emails concerning the National Anthem singer.
Concerns with overly vocal fans.
Complaints about concessions.
Or anything else involving the game day experience for Bowling Green State University athletics, Craig Sandlin is going to hear about it.
The 26-year-old Sandlin is BGSU's assistant athletics director for marketing and promotions. While it's a 24/7 job, Sandlin is enjoying himself.
''I love sports. There are days when I am in a little bit of a mood,'' Sandlin said. ''But ultimately we're here to ensure that our student-athletes have a great experience when they are here ... That's a very big part of it.
''That includes playing in front of good crowds,'' he continued. ''It's rewarding after a hockey game when your hear (head coach) Chris Bergeron or some of the players talk about the great crowd, and how important that was to them.''
Sandlin got into the sport management field after his first year at Ohio University, when he decided being a teacher wasn't the career path he wanted to follow.

Justin Shane, 24, Perrysburg, was sentenced to three years in prison Friday for causing a crash that killed his passenger in 2012.
Shane pleaded guilty in November to one count of second-degree aggravated vehicular homicide as part of a plea deal.
According to Ohio Highway Patrol troopers, on Aug. 29, 2012, Shane was westbound on Dowling Road at a high rate of speed when his vehicle went off the north side of the road, crossed Carter Road and struck a tree.
The crash killed his passenger, 31-year-old Crystal McLaughlin, of Bradner.
Shane had a blood-alcohol level of 0.198, higher than the legal limit of 0.08.
Prior to sentencing, Wood County Common Pleas Court Judge Alan Mayberry heard from a series of witnesses who spoke to Shane's character.
Shane's father, David, said he had worked with the victim for 10 years, but did not blame his son for the crash.
"As a father, you continue to try to teach your children, no matter how old they are."
"I would change places with Crystal if I could to spare my son," said Justin's mother, Peggy Shane.

Bowling Green State University's efforts to find millions of dollars in savings will take another step forward when a series of forums are presented next week.
Each forum will focus on a section of the Opportunity Assessment Report developed by the consultant Accenture.  Those recommendations unveiled in December showed possible savings for the university of up to $85 million over five years.
The university has now taken those recommendations and formed committees based on the report's six sections.
The goal of the project as stated in the university's announcement of the forums is "developing a new, more efficient organizational design aimed at achieving large-scale cost reductions without jeopardizing the core mission."
The forums will offer a brief overview of each committee's focus and announce the membership, appointed by President Mary Ellen Mazey, of each panel.
Each forum will be available as a live video stream, as well as later viewing at:

Very few high school students excel at the level of the Wood County Livestock Judging team which recently earned reserve champion honors at a prestigious national competition.
At the National Western Stock Show, the team of Kirsten Ameling, Hannah Frobose, Lane Kemner and Logan Browne represented Ohio after winning the state fair event. All four team members were in the top 20 individually at the event which drew 35 championship teams from across the country and Canada.
The team's coach, Dan Frobose said, "They are among the stars - the best in the United States. This is pretty awesome."
"It was exciting to represent Ohio at a national event," Ameling said.
Kemner added, "We represented Ohio and Wood County very well."
