I believe that was an 8 o clock game. A little easier to get to the game on time and didnt have the wreck on Hampton.

You know they have really toned down the rheotoric on the sellout streak. People still arent happy, lol. Now they are being accused of hiding a non sellout.

Those corporate guys sometimes have a tough time giving away Friday night tixs after a 4 game losing streak. I know my group we had a few go unused. Some kids playing HS football. I thought the crowd filled in better and by the end of the 1st qrt, was pretty good, very loud and engaged. The traffic was the worst I even seen 1-1/2 hour to go what takes usually takes 15 minutes. I know one couple who didn't make it and turned around. That caused a lot of the late arrivals, in the after work crowd.
We came in the back way through Park Place and had no issues at all.

I've been curious on this for the past several weeks. I'll be interested how they play this out.

They ought to just drop it, but my husband made mention that it may be making the corporate donors who are buying up the extra tickets happy.

I just wish the corporate donors had a better sense for what is and isn't important to the program

RE: Sellout streak
Maybe, just maybe there is a reason why we make it a point in working for (and yes, in announcing) sellouts at each home game. Let's put two and two together here. We want a 'new' stadium which arguably has a few thousand more seats. Perhaps we are trying to educate the powers that be that such an investment is needed and worthy of support. Just my two cents worth. Give our athletics department and Administration some credit. Yes, it has taken longer than any of us would like but we have to stay the course. We'll get there, trust me!

How does it harm anyone?

It doesn't harm anyone, but when ODU constantly boasts about a sellout and then you see a ton of shiny aluminum in the glaring sun on TV or in person, you're going to get a big ol' eyeroll from me. Just saying.
