RE: Lincoln Financial Field = EMPTY
It was a brutal game to watch given the poor offenses of each team. I agree that most MAC programs live in "glass houses" when it comes to attendance, but playing in a NFL stadium with no more than 5,000 folks on hand is pretty ugly to watch on national television.

As an longtime expert on really bad MAC football, I thought both teams showed why they are among the worst (i.e. bottom 25%) teams in the FBS. It looked like a pretty typical MAC game between teams for whom .500 is a record they can only dream about. Poor play abounded. Teams like that aren't going to attract any crowds. Who expected anything different? Other than the occasional aberrational year, this is business as usual for OU, TU, KSU, EMU, UA, and usually UB. Why all the carrying on and gnashing of teeth about a game that had the quality and crowd that is almost exactly typical for both teams? Sheesh...

victory engineer Wrote:You guys are a bunch of a-holes... ESPN did a heck of a job not to show the crowd ... from the little bit I reviewed last night. I planned on coming on here and apologizing for trash talking yesterday but instead, i read another loser thread from loser MAC fans... go play in your empty high school stadiums. I thought during the game hey i should get some crowd shots for the inevitable temple has no fans thread but thought... nah ESPN will show our side and the lower bowl half full.

ESPN has a fair amount of experience at camera angles designed not to draw attention to the empty seats. And it's not just the MAC games. Most non-BCS games on weeknights force them into that kind of low wide shot. I've seen broadcasts from TCU (which usually has decent teams) where it looked like you could find more people in line at Colter's Barbecue than at Amon Carter Stadium.

But spare me the stadium-size smack. It's one of the few things on this board I find even dumber than discussions of the NCAA attendance "rules" [sic].

I dont know why Temple people even read this board. Its devoid of any fb related information. All they do is rank each other and the whole conference pretty much blows anyway. Cant wait to get out.....

Enjoy the A-10.

Instead of all the negativity, attendance bashing, throwing EMU out of the conference, etc. that is constantly promoted on the board, why not look more at a positive once in a while. The attendance falls right in line with this Conference's standards. Of course it will look worse in a 66k seat stadium.

Don't come on here and act like you're better than us, criticize other teams for poor attendance and suggest the conference should kick out certain other teams and then cry when someone takes a shot at you.

Your team sucks. Your attendance sucks. And your team adds nothing to the MAC.

Everyone of you Temple fans can GFY.

absolutely not empty. the only thing empty was the Ohio side (25 people) ... there were 18K on the Temple side. It's not fudged. The tickets are electronically counted and the Eagles, not Temple, announce the attendance. 18K looks like 5K in a 70K stadium.
