    Why have you guys never sold out J.A. Stadium?

    Serious question. You guys were ranked and on a BCS run last year.

    Simple answer is a very fragile fan base with a die hard group of 13-15,000 that will only miss a game for a funeral or wedding. We get a fringe group of fans of 7-8,000 based on success. Have not had a long enough string of success to get our core group above 20,000. When we do that, we will sell out. As a lifetime fan, I dream of that day.

    To add to the previous post - we have traditionally played teams from BCS AQ conferences, such as Miami, Cal, Baylor, Oklahoma State, and Texas A&M in Shreveport.

    And finally -- Ruston is a small town in a remote area.

    When you calculate average football attendance as a function of surrounding population, we actually do pretty well.

    Slight tangent on the thread, but is that a good measure for the success of T Mac? I think it should be a major focus of his to get a big game here every other or every third year. Might help us avoid so many body bag games in the future. I know you need those, but maybe we can negotiate the price of 2 money games down some in exchange for a third game at home.

    If people would quit being stuck up other teams rear then they could enjoy a game they they could actually attend without spending a leg or arm lol
