Exclamation MTSU fails to draw 10,000 fans to any football game in 2018 season
https://www.dnj.com/story/sports/college...134227002/

Not good, especially given they were in a championship race to the end.

Do the people of Murfreesboro even know, or care about that team winning? 07-coffee3

Luckily, Jon Solomon isn’t with al.com to share our numbers anymore.

It's likely to be even worse next year without Stockstill under center.

Solomon can eat a bag of dicks. He was hell bent on getting UAB shut down based on "numbers". He probably worked for Carr Sports. F that guy.

According to their publicity, MTSU has the largest enrollment in the UT System. Drawing those numbers indicates a larger problem for their program than just local city turn out. They are not getting student / alumni support either.

Grammar Nazi was on their faculty so his viewpoint would be instructive.

I'm going to guess he was in the English department?

Yea would love to hear GN thoughts.

They are watching our attendance live a hawk. Im sure that’s why we have been conservative on numbers.

Someone posted a photo showing the west side pregame even before they let folks in and the comment was nice crowd. We should be mindful of camera angles and qualify pics of an empty stadium being before they let people in. The new setup will be the least amount of seats in the press box side to curtail perception on light crowds.

People forget Troys entire capacity can fit in the east side out of any camera shot

GN taught journalism at MTSU. I don't think it's a coincidence that the place in Murfreesboro that sold Iron Mike's Death Row hot wings folded once he left.

I was shocked at how few fans there were for the season finale, the UAB fans very well might have outnumbered the MTSU fans there that day, making the numbers that were reported even worse for them.

I'm confident there were more UAB fans at the championship game than MT fans.

I am also confident we outnumbered them for the championship game and the week before.

I was at the season finale and would say UAB fans equaled or outnumbered MTSU fans at the game.

What are they gong to do at their spring game with no UAB fans to pad their numbers?

Better yet, what is the coach going to do without having junior as QB?
