Full and fired up for most none cupcake games at a school half the size of Michigan. Probably because the tickets are free and we get T-Shirts and other crap for going, plus points that go towards better Duke basketball game lottery luck. There were two games in a insanely crappy 3-9 season that too many students came, and they just decided to fill in aisles. That’s what I’m saying, college students are easily bought with incentives. Give the students who come early and often better football seats, a discount on tickets, something. Michigan tried to get better attendance with that HAIL program, but that was a dud (GPS spoofing, tiny prizes, nothing to stop showing up and then leaving).
Games against top 5 teams at a school like Michigan should not have multiple half empty student sections. I think the program has reached a point higher than that. That’s just my opinion.
This 100%. That’s why the Jacksonville game was the one sellout this year. The students were gone and tickets were given away to a large amount of organizations. Jacksonville shouldn’t be the one sellout in a season.
Wisconsin, as you mentioned, Louisville, NC State, Nebraska, Michigan State, Arkansas, and Tennessee were all top 20 in basketball attendance and also have good to fantastic football support.
