When you're the only game in town, everybody's a fan.
I'm curious to know the true attendance from these games. While in Oxford this weekend to watch the Tigers, I attended the Red/Blue game for Ole Miss. Their stadium was roughly 20% full and I believe only holds 60,000 or so, yet they announced the attendance at 26K+.
You can't really call it paid attendance when some tickets are free and others are only a dollar.
Schools that go by sold tickets are inflated, obviously. I watched Ole Miss' game on TV and it looked like they had 5,000, maybe. Auburn had fewer as well, but who cares. I like football enthusiasm in the spring...even though I do love listening to Big Papi slump theories all day...
I am hoping UAB's was a closed scrimmage because on the news that night they literally had two fans in attendance. Some couple on the first row.
Yeah he'll be better now since they removed his buried jersey under New Yankee Stadium.
