Maybe it's the sport itself. (Gasp).

It would take a demographic study to determine who is buying sports tickets - individuals, corporations, municipalities, etc - to judge attendance. We know B'ham and some corporate interests buy UAB tickets to support the program and then maybe they go unused. That could be a factor for both pro and collegiate football. Individual sales may be affected by families moving away to places like Iowa, MD or NC. They may still loyally buy tickets for years, but they may not be able to attend all home games (especially with growing families).

Would make sense if UAB reported tickets sold instead of butts in seat.

Ray & Mark made an effort to announce attendance as butts in seat.

I suspect there will be a drop off from 2017 to 2018 due to opponents, etc.

There is zero doubt this will happen. It's not the end of the world either. The return really boosted our attendance numbers last year.
