Attendance
I look at 25,000 as a sell out. That was the size of the proposed on campus stadium a few years ago. Our average attendance this year is 24,837. We have our biggest two home games a head of us (UNT and USM) so I believe our attendance will increase. The entire point of this post is that Alabama students are now not showing up for there games.

For the first time in UAB football program history we are ready to judge the effects of rather consistent winning on attendance. If we can match 8-4 or better and do not improve our numbers, I will be very disappointed. I still believe there are hundreds of thousands of "unchurched" football fans in our metro area who can be attracted to our reasonably priced family football experience with an offer of quality play.

RE: Attendance
We were unable to secure an in-state OOC opponent this season, but the Savannah St game was still well-attended. Our average would be high had we secured an in-state school for that game. We should definitely consider UNA for future games now that they are FCS, as well as ASU (2019) and AAMU.

Don't forget JSU and Samford.

I can get why no JSU since Coach Clark coached there and is friends with their head coach but why no Samford?

RE: Attendance
Jimmy Tillette once came to a UAB basketball game just so he could beg our AD for us to give them a basketball game in person. For whatever reason we look at playing them in football or basketball like Tuscaloosa feels about playing us.

In football, which gap is closer? UA to UAB or UAB to JSU
In total athletic dept budgets, which gap is closer? UA to UAB or UAB to JSU

It's not close. Get over it.

How do you know this. I seriously doubt a basketball coach would try to get a game scheduled on a busy Game day. If he did, it is proof that Tillette had no clue what he was doing.

Maybe Clark should show up on game day in Tuscaloosa to ask Saban for a game.

I think we've proven that we need our own stadium now. It has to be 30k, because 25 is too small.

It's going to be 50, and soon that will be selling out.

50 will be sufficient as long as Mark doesn't schedule Savannah State level teams.
