Just accept it as part of the experience and move on. I'd much rather be complaining about the "mess" with a winning football team rather than go back to 1-10 seasons where there are less than 500 of us in a parking lot tailgating before games.

Don't sweat the small stuff, just enjoy the gameday experience.

I think that's fine. Many of us have just asked for better accountability on the place. With season tix holders, you have that because you're coming back in a couple of weeks. Past years, the SHC did not have that because it was a year before you'd be back.

It's sort of like the difference in renting and owning. But if the parking lot paint has been stopped, and the garbage is better controlled. Then it's win-win!

that's the largest crowd so far this season

Largest reported number. They use tickets distributed (including student, families, band, other freebies, and no-shows). For some reason, we use tickets scanned. We probably had more in the stadium for Old Miss - we know there were 45k minimum in attendance - with about 40k being actual Tigers fans.

They brought 20kish each, I suppose. For their "super bowl". Had Old Miss brought 20k, we would be SRO.

So it's a bit of a fail there.

umm, not really Boss

but nice effort,,,,,#'s don't lie


If you think the SHC outdrew Memphis V Ole Miss in 2019 then watch this and get back to us:




Yeah, I now take back my assumption that they each brought 20k-ish fans. 30k total there?

The entire area is much better marked and organized than ever before. There isn't the need to do what they used to do. Garbage may be something of a matter of better facilities and something of a matter of a smaller crowd.

The news outlets have never challenged Fred Jones’ inflated attendance numbers, even when they were wearing the UofM out about their’s. The SHC does not draw like it used to do.

Why can't folks here acknowledge there is an issue when a non-Tiger game in one of the most anticipated seasons ever outdraws what could realistically be the zenith of attendance on August 31, 2019

Uhhh... Because it didn't. That video proves it. HBCUs are almost as much about the halftime shows as they are the football games. And rightfully so. They are awesome. But Ned is right. The top half of the stadium is way more empty than the bottom half, which indicates that the Ole Miss crowd (which was 90% tigers fans) was bigger as far as butts in seats. IOW, attended.
