    I will, considering that even if GS announced a 25k sellout every single game they'd still be in the bottom third of the AAC.

    Because as much as people don't want these numbers to matter, they do. Perception matters. The current perception is that App, Ark State, Texas State, South Alabama, Georgia State, and Louisiana all have more people at their games than we do. The current perception is that App's attendance is nearly DOUBLE ours.

    Klak, send your idea to TK. I think it's a good one considering the circumstances.

    You assume that all the current conferences will still be around and be what they are today.

    Nonetheless, I’d rather be in the bottom third of the AAC than the bottom third of the SBC.

    Whose perception? People on message boards?

    Without looking at any of the data that you provided, if you gave me 50 tries I couldn't come within 1,000 of the numbers reported by anyone other than GS and Gag St (and MAYBE Appy), and that's only because Gag St's have been dragged through my brain kicking and screaming in this thread.

    Where are you finding the actual attendance numbers vs announced attendance?

    Well the first part of his plan is actually the best part.

    To increase demand, sometimes you have to reduce supply. If we don't allow sales in those sections until the other sections are sold, then we can start countdowns that we only have X many tickets available. Then when those are gone, you announce that additional seating has been opened but only x many are available so get them fast.

    It's the same thing Gast does. They don't have all their tickets available on Ticketmaster at the same time. It's how they're able to say "only 700 tickets left for our game against Army" when it's obvious they were nowhere close to selling out.

    You have to drive your own demand sometimes. You can relax it when everyone thinks you're the hot ticket and starts buying earlier.

    Does the second statement preclude the first statement?
