Anybody else watch the Mississippi State vs. Ole Miss game while finishing off some turkey ON Thanksgiving Day? They didn't seem to have a problem getting butts in seats. I know they are in the SEC and this was a rivalry game and blah blah blah, but my point is that getting to the game on Thanksgiving weekend is all about priorities. You can't tell me that the Miss State stadium was only filled with people that live in Starkville, MS. That place only has a population of just over 25K and there were more than that at the game. (By the way, Denton's population is more than 5x that size!) UNT's enrollment is 10K more than Mississippi State's.
If the students and extended fan base wanted badly enough to be at the game to see Mason off, they could have. I'm sorry so many chose to pee on Mason's last game.
