All of those empty seats we saw in a large number of non-Big House games this year were no mirage. College football attendance is at its lowest levels since 2003. It also seems that our students are not alone with respect to their attendance "issues" of the last few years.
I also thought this piece was relevant in view of yesterday's PSD increases noted on an Mgoboard thread.
Five of the six BCS conferences reported attendance decreases, and per al.comreporter Jon Solomon, the only exception -- the Pac-12 -- was an exception only because Cal left its temporary limited-capacity stadium setup in 2011 for its newly renovated Memorial Stadium.
Note - this was not OT because BIG football was discussed.
