I think the student section block seating will be looked at in the off-season. It has to be, but the overall attendance was bad as well. I'm sure it will still go down as a sellout, but is was maybe 75% full.
I keep hearing the excuse that students are just crowding into the lower section, but there's no way in hell its 4-5,000 over capacity down there. Because that's about how many seats are empty in the upper deck section every game.
This could be the greatest football team to ever play the game, you just aren't gonna get a full stadium (especially student seating) if you are playing Western Carolina at 11:20 am. Especially late in the season. If this was a September game, we probably would have seen a better turnout.
