    I know the first 4 games were pretty accurate in actual count. Through the first 4 we were averaging around 21,500. The last game we had a legit 14-15K. But they announced a number around 18K to get the overall season average to 20K even.

    our attendance is fourth in a nine team league. ruston (and moscow, idaho) are by far the two smallest towns in the league, so our per capita attendance is strong. and it coud be better with that schedule next year. we are slowly getting there.

    Thankyou! Now if the attendance nazis want to pick these numbers apart, they might get us down to an average of 19,750.:icon_wink:

    Nope - afraid that we don't have all the kinks worked out of the scanning system even after a full year...

    However, we were up a good 1,500 to 2,000 per game over the previous year

    Like I said, I'll take that all day long!
    And you know what DWAYNE??? TECH INCREASED ATTENDANCE BY 10.89% which killed every other university in the WAC. And that's during a "recession" in population poor N.Louisiana. EVERY OTHER WAC team actually LOST ATTENDANCE except BSU which gained by 1.5%.

    LOUISIANA TECH WINS AGAIN!! We have a long way to go but we are growing in numbers and folks that care and want to be in Ruston on a Thur., Friday or Saturday and make it the "place to be" and that's what matters, even in the accounting field.

    I bet they sold some corportate advertising and with each contract, they provided 500 or more tickets to each home contest. Throw in ten deals with Cox, Chase Bank, etc... and then you have 5,000 or so empty seats with the number being inflated by that same number as it will be listed as "tickets distributed/sold".

    An odd happening? Come on, that last att. was made up to get us to 100,000 total and 20,000 average.

    If I were to make something up, i would have made it up to go just over the 100,000 and 20,000 number. That way it wouldn't look suspicious - not that I've ever put much thought into deceit or lying!

    All good points. And if you consider that there are only 11k students at Tech and the city's population is only about 21k, an average of 20k in attendance with all the televised games we had last season is not too bad. I think we are on the right track and this year will be even better. I just hope Sonny is as good at getting fans to the games as Dooley was.

    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.
    It's a win-win as I see it

    Re: WAC Attendance Figures

    This year, we don't have any mid-week games or much TV to compete with either, so our attendance should be even better. What'd really make me happy is if our team is doing well enough that people actually come to that Nevada game at the end of the season, instead of us having that huge drop-off in attendance that we usually have then.
