    WAC Attendance Figures

    The WAC not the least attended conference in football ... taste our hotness, Sun Belt!

    Tech, Boise and Utah St. were only WAC teams to increase attendance from the previous year. We averaged 20,000 in attendance during the 2009 season. Bad for the WAC, but I am glad to see our average attendance up. Yet another reason to switch to CUSA.

    What is the point in taunting the Sun Belt? Eyes on a bigger prize, my friend.

    I agree......... We all know about the belt and most of us don't care one little bit........ We need to keep growing this fan base and increase our attendance every year. CUSA will get us the attendance by bringing fans to our games (except for Tulane and our experience with SMU not bringing anyone). The others will help. Plus, our fans will get up for the regional rivalries.

    That is....... unless we get in the B12!

    I wasn't meaning to taunt the Sun Belt, just pointing out where we stand compared to the other conferences and that we are growing the fan base. I hope that the coming Southern Miss and Houston games bring a lot of fans from the opposing teams and I really hope Tech fans take the opportunity to travel to these closer away games.

    What's the harm? This is not a social function.:icon_wink:



    E.E., as you know we are playing USM and Houston to build our own fan base not because of the number of fans they will bring to boost our attendance.

    How does Tulane get a way with lying to that degree. They have their average at 25,000 . . . I bet they didn't have one game with 20,000 the entire season.

    Does anyone on the inside know what our actual # was. I am sure it wasn't exactly 20,000. My guess is that we rounded up some.

    EE just copied and pasted what the author of the article wrote. He wasn't the one making the remark about the Sunbelt. The author was a Boise St. fan.

    So what is your guess? 15? 19?

    I'm guessing we were closer to 18k....but I agree with whoever asked about Tulane. No way they managed 25k average for the year.

    I understand they want to pack out their stadium, but if you have season tickets, live hours away and you're playing 1AA Cal poly, um, not everyones going to show up... yes of course id try, but you all of of any game to miss, that'd be it... I think that author needs a reality check, and personally id add more seats than that.

    My guess would be that we averaged a little over 19,500 and rounded up for the sake of non ticket holding toddlers.

    Re: WAC Attendance Figures

    This board LOVES to speculate about attendance, haha! The Boise guy does need to lighten up. We all saw how many tigger fans showed up when we rolled into Baton Rouge, and we sure aren't FCS Cal-Poly or whatever. That's comparing LSUseless to Boise, so they need to just chill out. Not every game is going to fill the stadium 100%. I agree too that I'd have added more seats to Bronco Stadium than 1,500.

    Our attendance is going to be great this year!
