Maybe after pointing to that number hanging up in the rafters.
We should see a an increase in tickets sold next year because of Hoiberg. I also believe the first few games will be pretty full for anticipation. Just as always, though, the number of pre-conference games will result in lower attendance after the initial lust phase is over...probably around game 6. We will likely have a poor team, and actual attendance won't be much different than last year as the season runs through. Curiousity and fascination will run its course, and when conference games roll around, actual attendance will be based on winning performance.
