    Here's the WSJ numbers from two years ago that gives number of scanned tickets per game as a percentage of reported attendance average for each FBS team. Here are the top G5s:

    1. Navy 100%
    2. South Alabama 95.%
    3. WKU 95.1%
    4. Georgia Southern 90.8% (also 4th in all of FBS)
    5. Hawaii 80.7%
    6. Colorado State 80.6%
    7. Georgia State 74.8%
    8. Boise State 73.9%
    9. San Diego State 72.7%
    10. USF 71.7%
    11. UConn 70.4%
    12. North Texas 69.6%
    13. Wyoming 68.2%
    14. Houston 66.8%
    15. Fresno State 65.8%.


    So out of the ~60 G5 schools, only 11 have a percentage of 70+.

    For reference, if that percentage for us dropped to 70 (which would still put us in the top 20% of G5 schools in terms of percentage), a reported attendance of 19k turns into 24k. No one's going to say 5k is a rounding error for our attendance or most every G5 team's.

    South Alabama reported 20,013 in an empty stadium last night. We reported 19,220 in a full stadium last Saturday.

    Thats amazing.

    Possibly even worse than Gag.

    (Honestly, we should just report full attendance and full grass area every single game. If no one is gonna hold these other guys to any kind of truth, why should we play straight? An outside observer probably really thinks we are pulling smaller crowds than USA and Gag.).

    Moral victories equate to real life losses.

    Do Right is a nice slogan, but it awards no points. Attracts no new sponsors.

    Wow. Just, wow... that is unbelievable. How do you look at yourself in the mirror if you are responsible for announcing that number?

    Any announcer with any kind of sense would remark on it....

    ”Well, Bob.... That number seems a tad high at the moment. Perhaps the restrooms are bigger than we thought. I mean, restroom could have 5 or 6 thousand stalls, right??”

    You shrug and move on because everyone else in the world is doing the same thing (except us).

    This is officially 20k attendance:






    And this is officially 19k attendance:

    I can manage that!

    Say we have 5000 on the press box side and 14000 on the student side.

    Attendance = 5000 + 14000
    = (5000 + [3000 - 3000 + 3000...]) + (14000 +[10000+10000-10000-...])
    =(5000+3000) + [-3000+3000-3000...] + (14000+10000) + [-10000+10000-10000...]
    =(5000+3000) + (14000+10000)
    =8000+24000
    =32000

    Looks a lot better than 19,000.
