Your Frank is showing, Clarity. Take a deep breath. Everything is going to be okay. You don't think Cal Baptist will be able to draw in Riverside. I think they have a chance. Time will tell.

Lol someone challenges your view and you start callling me Frank. Your original post was really passive aggressive and unnecessary and I responded. That makes me Frank I guess lol. Believe it or not, not everyone agrees with you. Discussions are good and so are differing opinions.

You are wrong. UVU has done a great job of embracing the WAC and getting people out to the games. The attendance numbers are real. UVU has also been in the top 20 in NCAA men's soccer attendance for the past three years.

CBU has already sold over 500 season tickets for basketball before they have played a game in the arena. They did not build this $73 million arena for 1,000 fans per night. They have a forward thinking administration that has been planning this move to D1 for awhile. They have money and are ambitious. In the Riverside/Inland Empire area, there is only one other D1 school and that is UCR. They play in a rec center. CBU will have no trouble getting to 3,000 a night with the new arena. They should be able to attract a much better non-conference schedule than UCR puts together with the arena and market.

RE: 2016-17 WAC Men's Basketball Attendance Numbers
Riverside, CA is part of the LA metro which has plenty of ppl to draw from. Liberty U basketball isn't their main focus. They are all about their FB program and buying games against P5 schools to come to their place to play them. GCU doesnt make money off their athletics and GCU has pumped money in to all aspects of their school. Just b/c most only hear about the 10 in 2 project some think GCU only cares about athletics. However GCU does value athletics its not the only thing they value at the school. The school itself is doing great things in the local community and beyond their own zip codes. Back to CBU, they should be a top3 school in attendance their 1st year in the WAC and they should be a fairly talented team in transition. CBU as it looks right now is following GCU's footsteps in their athletic endeavors.

I think Cal Baptist will have great attendance at their games but Clarity nails it with his description of GCU and why they are successful. I also love how GCU fans try to play off the for profit status as simply a tax condition. Read about for profit schools and you'll see what it really means.

Look at CSUB at UVU last year. There were no more than 200 people there and that's a fact. Every game I've seen there has been a ghost town. The numbers are completely false.

I'm focused more on tournament wins than attendance. That is where $$$ is. Can someone please win a tournament game?

The only times WAC teams had huge attendance for conference games was when NMSU came to town, even GCU. GCU ticket booth person told me NMSU was always the game everyone at GCU lived for. GCU did pretty much have a sellout for every game.

So, if we had four sellouts (in addition to some other large crowds which were not sellouts) and NMSU came to town once, how does that constitute "the only time..." or even most of the time?

You seem to want the Ags to take credit for schools attendance improvements, and that's simply not true. Its a function of overall conference improvement.

Not true at all at least for CSUB. We almost sold out Chicago State, sold out Utah Valley and had 3k for Seattle.
