Games like UT in 2016 and MSU in 2015, so fun with Waldo packed (UT was my favorite because packed stadium and all Bronco fans). Shame it only happens every couple years. Maybe with the Cuse coming this year, we'll get close.

Unfortunately thanks to the media like ESPN, people think the only games they should care about are Highly Ranked Power 5 Tech Team playing Highly Ranked Power 5 State Team.

Cuse fan here...I expect about 300 Cuse fans to show up. It might be as high as 500...but I doubt we get there. Most Upstate NY based fans will either attend the NY State Fair or head to their lake houses for the last weekend of summer. Having it Friday night cut our travel crowd down by half by my estimation.
Opening Night usually draws our better crowds at Waldo. I think a lot of offices will be closed on Friday too, and that'll help. Haven't looked at WMU's academic schedule, but if it's while school's off, the student side should be a full house after a day of tailgating and an ACC opponent in town.
I'd be okay (and am thinking) we'll have about 20,000 total attendance, usually about 23K opening night, would love 25K though.

Coach Lester had told us that there are plans to eventually add a second level to the stands. There was no timeframe, however.

Which stands?


I want to say the sidelines. Coach talked about it with us during our visit up there last July.

RE: Waldo additions
Because of the press box on the south side, and the suites on the north side, it's hard to visualize how the build up a second level on the sideline. Not saying its impossible, I just can't visualize it. Easy to see reworking the west end. Or one of the grassy slopes.

I'd like to see additions to the food and beverage end of it. The current choices are limited and a bit tired. Maybe they could add a food court of some kind. Or a food truck parking area behind the west stands.

Would be nice to put some honorary tribute to PJ Fleck, for the outstanding and unique season he brought to us. You know, a statue, or an eternal flame or a bronze rowboat with oars or something. Maybe he'd contribute to help pay for that?

Probably just stretching the truth a little as most coaches do when recruiting...Im sure most G5 schools have "plans" to add seats should the demand ever come.

He generally doesn't stretch the truth. Always known him to be honest.

Completely agree. Would be a great (and very useful) project for Waldo.

How about the next time the stadium floods, have the PJ Fleck memorial rowboat race Cup Challenge?
