It's way beyond that. Here was my response to Brian:

I was at the Friday regular season game at Mariucci. More people than this, but... as sparse as I have ever seen Mariucci by some distance. The same people who could be barely bothered to come when they already had tickets just aren't shelling out when they have to pay extra.

The last B1G tournament at the X was predictive, in retrospect. It was in the cities, literally minutes from Mariucci. Minnesota was there, and had a good team that had already won a banner at that.

Nobody came. I went to the UM-PSU game and the place was a tomb; few showed up late for Minnesota to play. Apathy is a thing.

Mike Pastujov interview. Asked about his goal, said he saw Lambert going to the net, had to get a shot on goal, as their goalie gives up rebounds. Got lucky with the deflection off their D.
