RE: Week 1 Attendance
Only 19,592 showed up for the North Texas game. That was a little disappointing. But not too bad considering the man-made gas crisis the Dallas/Fort Worth region was facing at the time, and hosting an FCS program. I expect a bigger crowd when UAB plays in Denton in a few weeks.

If we beat Syracuse and Minnesota there might be a decent crowd for Bowling Green. If not, the crowds will be pathetic for the rest of the season. We desperately need a new president, AD, and football coach to breathe some life into this program.

RE: Week 1 Attendance
Are some of you guys just going to have to deal with low attendance? Like WKU? You guys have been doing very good but your attendance is a black eye. We need our top teams getting top attendance numbers.

Until WKU builds it fan base .... it is what it is. WKU found its winning ways so fast that it skipped the part of building a loyal fan base. We have our 10-13k that is loyal as hell, but the rest are fickle. Remember Bowling Green is one of the smalllest population areas in CUSA and the biggest majority are UK fans..... we are building, its just taking time

ODUs game was technically sold out, but the weather kept a few away, and when the rain started pouring the crowd dispersed quickly. I'd guess less than 2000 when the fourth quarter started. Our fans need better rain gear.

Lets see every game is shown on TV...LOCALLY. No dollar or five dollar night. Small population. Poor state. Two national championship and top all time programs (#1 & #6 ) with in 2.5 hours and both state schools.

The only one fighting that last part is UNCC and UAB. neither are figing the other problems of Small population base or every game being shown on live TV

So with that Western is sitting at 83% of butts in seats...17% of a full stadium. Would it look better and be better to fill those other 3900 seats? Sure it would.

But lets see which is more valuable to the conference....

17% of your seats sitting empty and winning 23 games over the last 2 seasons

Or having 4 to 5,000 more fans in the stands in a stadium that is half full and winning 7 or below games each of the last 2 years?

Seats sitting unused mostly only hurt that team. A team losing affects us all...

now out of these two has the larger negative affect on a conference...

1. 17% of your seats going unused and winning

2. 50% of your seats sitting empty even you are averaging 24k in attendance and losing

Lets be honest which do you think the average fan sitting at home watching a game is going to notice as a negative.....

only 18,600 fans in a 22k seat stadium winning
24,000 fans sitting in a half empty stadium losing

Lets just drop the winning or losing .....the average fan does not know or care the total number of butts sitting in those seats. The average fan will see a mostly full to a mostly empty stadium and take notice.

I believe that was our worst home opener crowd since the stadium opened in 1991. A lot of people frustrated that we retained our OC.

True. The lack of changes made after last year's dumpster fire created a lot of apathy.
