Obligatory attendance thread

This is not a USF problem, it is a non-power five problem.

We are not in the Big East anymore.  We have to realize that when you don't have West Virginia, Syracuse, Pitt, and other brand names coming to town, attendance will be low.

Yes, winning helps, but we will not fill Rayjay simply by winning, even if we go undefeated.  

Look at Temple games, Memphis games, Cincy, Houston, often empty or half full stadiums. UCF seemed to have good numbers during the last few years, but even with their good seasons, thay rarely sold out.

It is much more about who you play than how you play.

We've been bad for a few years.  It just needs time.  A lot of people checked out at 1-3.  After a good season, an uptick is likely next year.  If we're ranked, the crowd will be bigger because of the buzz generated.  Beat FSU here next year and the sky's the limit.

Our conference is the limiting factor.  Yes, wins will improve attendance, but only so far.

All I can say is the the fans who were there last night were loud and proud.  If casual fan can't "do" the game, then to heck with them.  Don't need them.  A program like Usf will have to depend on continued success to bring out alumni who will suddenly remember that, "Hey... I went to Usf...  the football team is doing really well now.. I'll think I'll go the games now that I can brag about them at work."
