Don’t worry. The courage of his (the Thousand Dollar Liar) convictions ended when asked to lay down some $$ to backup his lies. If he believed his own lies, he could call me on the bet and force me to make a big donation to JMU Athletics. Strangely, THAT “randomly” was the moment he decided to be the “bigger man” and ignore the conversation like Dukeman.

Is this “canceling” him? Am I “canceling” him now?

Or he could just acknowledge that he was blowing smoke & apologize for the lies.

He doesn't care...but he'll keep posting. But he won't address why he sprinted away when his lies were called out.

Sprinted away? What lies did I say? I gave my opinion, which is what these boards are

And Maybe I just don’t get all butt hurt about message board posts or wish to engage in a juvenile online fight with someone having a tantrum.

I’ve had more directed at me by multiple people on here and in this thread alone, but I just brush it off because it’s just sports message board talk. It’s not a big deal.

Lighten up Francis.
I’m out with you. Carry on if you wish.

Sure. But isn’t it more juvenile to try to discredit someone, then ignore them challenging you on it?

Liberty

Syracuse - 21,671
Hampton - 18,944 (FCS in state)
New Mexico St - 18,674
Maine - 18,657 (FCS)
New Mexico - 17,101
Buffalo - 14,584

Hampton game was sandwiched between NM and Buffalo games. More people chose to go to in state rival than two FBS opponents

Actually, Hampton out drew three FBS programs.

Maine was homecoming. Hampton was four weeks (three games) earlier as "Family Weekend". Five of our first seven games were home, which tends to thin the crowds at times if you are demanding your fan base to show up every week.

Syracuse was the season opener with a debuting head coach making national headlines (for better, for worse, or for comedy in his hospital bed). New Mexico State was the season finale to determine bowl eligibility.

I would say many of the attendees want to come out and see season opening games, homecoming games, or probable wins. I think that is the reason so many FCS games have high attendance, more than just being nearby (not all of them are).

I understand & I’m not going to keep posting about it. My whole beef has been that guy’s attempt to discredit me has been quite public. I’m not going to keep it up though unless he keeps trying to post “one last thing” about it. I understand that continues to get exponentially more annoying to others, the more that I post on it.

This. Move on. Both of you think you're right. No use in bullying

yea, i get the first game and homecoming/parents weekend bump up.

I think the point i'm trying to make is there does not seem to be this significant up tick in attendance against the so-called better opponents. i looked at a wide range of G5 leagues, and it's just not there.

is there a bump? maybe. but it's small, if at all.

the indication on here has been that the stands will be overflowing with "better" opponents. Whether it is a P5 or NDSU type opponent.

I certainly see JMU's attendance getting bumped, but I believe we would be the exception, not the rule. This started because I questioned whether Charlotte's attendance will go through the roof for these upcoming games. the exceptions might be Duke (local rival - Blue Devil fans will help fill it up) and definitely UNC, which will probably outnumber Charlotte fans at that game.

Every school is a unique case so obviously there's no one size fits all explanation for the relationship between schools, attendance, and opponents. Our attendance since moving up isn't great but it's better than it was when we were FCS, no arguing that, and that's despite how terrible we've been. In our case we've only had one home P5 game in 2012 against Tech and that was a sellout, but have two scheduled in the near future against Baylor and Arizona State in 2021 and 2024, which I fully expect to sellout as well. You'd be amazed at the drawing power of a "name" program and of course it helps that Baylor is local. Heck we had a sellout against Navy in 2014. Also sellouts against UH and UTSA.

Unfortunately those great crowds have been due to the opponents but if we can ever get some hype regarding our own team we'll be looking pretty good all on our own. Heck in 2015 coming off of a winning season we got 24.5k for Prairie View A&M and then 27k for USM.

We're getting robbed of a great home slate this year with games against SMU, UTSA, Ohio, Louisiana, App, Arkansas St, and Coastal. I'd bet that SMU and UTSA would have sold out and that Ohio and App would've been 23k+ but now we'll never know.

Long Story short, using our program as an example I think Charlotte will definitely sellout and them some for these P5 games
