But, we all know who controls the schedule, and getting fans to the stadium is not their concern.

Just for the record we had 18,361 against Western Michigan the day before Thanksgiving.

No. 1: Attendance as a whole was better then. No. 2: There was a lot on the line that game and it was marketed as such. People made the effort to be there because a lot was on the line. Set up a game now the day before Thanksgiving with no meaning attached to it and see what attendance we get.

I agree with you I was just stating what the attendance was for that game because it was higher than what I had remembered.

Yes, those were the "good old days"! Today, it would be great to get 18+K on a beautiful Saturday.

Keep getting ads for something called fubo.tv which claims to have CBSSN, and is a sports-centric streaming service, has anyone tried this, and if so what was the picture quality like?
