    I've said it a million times. Weekday games = Out of sight. Out of mind

    This wasn't true 30 years ago when EVERYBODY watched the Thursday night game. Va Tech built a program on it. This is not true today.

    It doesn't mean anything anymore. With streaming of all games, all the time, we've saturated the market. We are giving away GOLDEN opportunities to have some historic Saturday nights for the FOOLS GOLD of the weekday black hole.

    Football's Golden Goose was being the original Hunger Games.

    Only on the weekend was an appetite builder and is how football overtook baseball as America's game.

    The everyday football fix, kills the desire to go to the game.

    Wow, this got a bit depressing and we've not even had the game yet.

    As far as attendance goes, it gets to me that this football team doesn't have the support that we know it could and should have. It's frustrating that Bustle and Hud drew 25-30k regularly with lesser teams. At least that's what it felt like. Although they didn't have to deal with 3 home weeknight games and a media era where it's flat out just easier to stay home and stream or watch a game on T.V.

    We also put 40+ k in NOLA for 3 straight years. We have the fans when they want to come out.

    At this point, I have to keep reminding myself that there is nothing I can do about it. Because there isn't. I bought 3 more season tickets this year. I contribute to the RCAF. I go tailgating. I go to other UL sporting events. I buy the gear. I buy concessions. I'm a fan and that's the extent of a fan's job - show up, cheer and spend money.

    It's the University's job to figure out the rest.

    Check with the athletic department to see if they have any left. They actually delivered mine to my office last year.

    20,066 wasn't bad. Should it be more? Absolutely. And the student section was involved. I just listened to the radio highlights and re watched some of the game and it was nice to hear a lot of noise.

    Side note, I saw some other schools throwing shade at our attendance. Rightly so, but remember the glass houses principle. Especially you, Covid Carolina. Keep your comments to yourself because we see your attendance for your first 4 home games:

    16,236
    17,697
    15,261
    18,674

    Dude, you've been ranked in the top 25 ALL year and we still draw a better average than you!

    I just heard them on the post game show last night and Scott's show this morning. Someone has the link to the highlights from the ESPN2 broadcast in another thread.

    Their stadium only seats 20,000. 90-97% sell out. We'd have to get to around 36,000 for that to happen at CF.
