Might this trend be fine for schools who’ll get $24-$30 million annually from its P5 conference coffers, but for G5 schools not so much since some need good attendance for the all important gate receipts?
(Honestly, did UCLA only draw 1,000 fans for a recent game)?
I think overall, you're just seeing less people go to games so making the experience itself top notch is more important. Most programs are having attendance woes. You can watch most games from the comfort of your couch without dealing with overpriced food, traffic, dirty restrooms, cell tower dead zones, and so on. I think making the game day experience better will get the occasional visitors, especially those with families, to come back more regularly.
Seth can stay if he wins a C-USA Championship (never going to happen) and then proceeds to win a bowl game (definately never going to happen). If Seth is here next year without those two things I will personally pay the $5k to fly the "Fire Seth & Wren" banner over our inaugural AAC home game.
I have not set up a tailgate in several years. My niece is a freshman so I am bringing my sister and about 20-25 who have never been to a game. Got blue lot tickets. Any ideas for location? I know Tony’s area and a another friend by him are prime but paid spots. Don’t want to be by the fraternities. Not cooking but bringing Hutchins bbq. Did that at last tailgate for Frisco bowl. Damn good bbq
