    That’s impressive. If 15 and 16 were like 17,18, and 19, it’d be even higher.

    So are these over 100% teams because:
    • capacity was reduced during that 5 year span,
    • they are overfilling the stadium,
    • they have standing room only that they don't count as part of capacity, or
    • they are playing games with the numbers?

    I don’t believe Michigan’s stats. I watched a story about dropping attendance for them. So how is it possible they over fill it but have dropping attendance. The rest are believable

    This is based on tickets sold as K-State reports anyway. For example, K-State shows 48,990 attended the ISU game last season. I would guess there were 41,000 in the stands at kickoff. So, that attendance number includes tickets sold not butts in the seats. And an AD told me that attendance includes everyone with a pass including media and cops. So, there's that angle as well.

    I just don't think it's fair to tout you can get 91,000+ attendance when you are only really getting about 55,000 total teeth and 35,000 total shoes.

    Nebraskans struggle count past ten so I figure that is their issue.

    Nebby decreased seating capacity by about 2,000 when they removed a bunch of upper level bleachers and slightly increased space between some of the 18 inch seats.

    ECU has a surprisingly strong fan base. It helps that all of the P5 programs in NC are in the middle part of the state. The eastern part is culturally distinct and has a lot of Pirates fans. If they got good at football again, they could be in a P5 mix.

    The Big 12 has seven teams in the top 40. Nine in the top 50.

    Clyde Williams Field held 36,000 seats and an absolute great environment for football....Parking you ask?....In a neighbors back yard and you had better get their early to find a place to park...then walk down the street to a pizza joint and drink beer and eat pizza until it was Game Time.....
