Lol again why you are working at walmart.

There are a million people plus in green country (the tulsa and immediate surrounding area) quite sure we can find 40,000 to attend. We averaged 30,000+ in the early 90s when we were really good and had a smaller population. Our biggest problem has been program instability and marketing. Too many coaches who leave as the momentum builds. Tulsa should be very good this year. A win at ok state and we will average 26 or 27k this year in our 28,500 stadium.

You literally seem to struggle with history. Houston and SMU were invited after the raiding of the big east occured. What teams east of houston/dallas was the big east going to get? Geographically speaking having one pair of outliers in the west wasn't huge. When the core of the big east began to rush to the exits having smu and houston out west all alone suddenly became a big deal.

Further when Houston and SMU were added there were back channel discussions of a football only invite to tulsa, which the administration quickly shut down. We had been independent in football before and wanted our teams in the same conference all sports. Not saying it would have happened then but football only invite was never an option in TU's eyes. Once the mass exit was started TU is a no brainer add.

RE: AAC Member Shortcomings & How to Fix Them
For Temple attendance continues to be a problem. In all reality we should avg somewhere around 35k. But in most seasons we come in around 26k.
Perhaps there is no real solution.
One thing that we do know is that the opponent matters. Penn State and Notre Dame crowds brought in big crowds of 66k or more despite the tix prices being doubled for those games.
One thing that we have never tried is play on campus. We know from other schools that this would be the ideal setup.
Bball in recent seasons has averaged around 6k. If the team can return to being a national powerhouse, I would expect that to increase to at least 8k. That would be 8k in a 10k building which would be 80% full which would be very good.
