Why is there a Miami-Marshall game being played in Athens?

As a way to help Miami stay above the 15,000 attendance rule....

Tickets Remaining:

North Texas 1581
Marshall 2072
Austin Peay 5019
Central Michigan 3846
Miami 3551
Kent State 5298
Massachusetts 5287

From the looks of it right now about 16,500 season+student tickets have been sold.

The student set aside is 6500 with the student average last year 5900 (including mid week games). If the students can turn out big all Saturday games will be sold out.

Kent State will probably hit 20,000 as a big MAC game with the students in town. UMass as a Black Friday game will be the most challenging to sell out. 17,500 for Black Friday would be good progress.
The 2 MAC Saturday home games are Homecoming and Halloween. If the team's record is like I expect it to be, those will be epic crowds.

It is becoming crystal clear that Ohio is the MAC's flagship program.

Please regale us with the stories of all your championships. Or, you know, anything that you've done that's been relevant in football recently.

But hey, congrats on the highest revenue title last year. You guys can go hang out with Toledo who gets to celebrate all their recruiting titles.

Here is the same update from DeKalb:

Eastern Illinois - 5
Akron - 2
DeKalb High - SOLD OUT
Western Michigan - moving game to Soldier Field to accommodate demand
Ball State - game cancelled. DeKalb can't handle the sea of people expected

I'm sorry that Ohio College is struggling with ticket sales.

Ohio has made "Best Fans in the MAC" a thing...check out the logo on the OhioBobcats.com splash page: http://www.ohiobobcats.com/

In other news, I have no idea where he's getting some of these numbers. But I do know that season ticket sales are way up and that we'll probably have 4/5 sellouts. No chance in you-know-where we sell out the Tuesday or Black Friday games...but we may get 20K+.

RE: OHIO FB: Sold out for the season?
I think many fans get the feeling Ohio is going to be scoring a bunch with this offense. Lots of talk that this could be the highest scoring team in school history with the weapons and ability to run and throw it at will if everybody stays healthy. Senior QB with lots of experienced targets and four really good backs with power in short yardage and speed to take it to the house at any time. Tettleton's ability to run and pass makes him a special weapons. Ohio wins if they don't turn the ball over several times in a game. Ohio is going to move the ball and wear teams down in the second of games with the fresh backs they have vs tired MAC defenses that will have been on the field a lot against the Ohio offense.
