Opener attendance predictions ??? Just for fun
THammock is really good at using social media, etc., to keep up the excitement and interest level leading up to the Illinois State game and the season. It's also obvious he doesn't want to give anything away (unlike previous regime, where everything was pretty predictable anyway). His Twitter posts are always about positive attitude and things that are happening ... and they are really happening.

It would be interesting -- maybe a little closer to the Aug. 31 game -- to see how ticket sales are going. Anyone know anything now? How about some attendance predictions, just for fun?

As a guide, official attendance for home openers, last five years:

2018: Utah, 16,762
2017: Boston College (Fri.) 16,421
2016: San Diego St. 14,513
2015: UNLV, 15,455
2014: Presbyterian 12,398

15,876

Should be better than UNLV but not up to the P5 draws.

I’m pretty optimistic about the attendance for this game and will say this one breaks the 20k mark.

I’ll go 18,132.

But I wouldn’t put past Hammock to get it over 20K.

20k wouldn't be surprising. Big Brother should bring 2-3k and Hammock's promotion will sell tickets this first game.

Don't forget the Illinois State fans that will come. I recall a large contingent for the SIU game, albeit that was a matchup of two incredible QBs (Lynch vs Garoppola).

This game will be over 20k. Just think of all the Rod Carey bashers who have now put their money where their mouth is and will go to games now. 05-stirthepot

As Danny Murtaugh of the Pirates used to predict 30 to 40,000 so if 31 showed up he would win the bet.

GO HUSKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you don't go don't complain.

There was a volume and depth to that crowd noise at that EIU game 1st half which is rarely heard at Huskie Stadium

Should have mentioned in the OP ... official capacity is 23,595 (that was listed official attendance for the EIU game also. i.e., sellout).
