For those of us that were at the game Saturday...
« on: November 06, 2017, 08:31:14 am »

...what do you think the actual attendance of the game was?

We sat on the west side, so the east side looked to be about 1/3 full.  I'd estimate there were 75 people in the upper deck.  Can't tell about the suites or club level, and it was hard to tell how many were on the west side with us.

The 61,000 'official' attendance was complete fiction.

My estimate is 32,000.

My guess was 40-45k at kickoff. Maybe I'm a little high...

I was guessing around 30.  If you just glanced at the sections, the red seats and seat backs made it look more full.  I didn't see any section that looked half full.

Official attendance is ALWAYS tickets sold.

Also, not sure when from (likely pre-game at some point):

No traffic. Empty parking lots.

61k is laughable.

West side did not look that much better than East.

Lots of t-shirt fans started bailing early in the 3rd quarter too.

How many of those in the stadium paid $2 for seats or got in free?

From the players on the field and the way they look like they are warming up, that looks like it was either before the game or halftime. Just pulled it from Twitter.

My initial thoughts were about 45K-50K.

Keep this up and we will be playing 4 games in Little Rock again....and to think about all of the remarks when WMS only had about 35,000. Win, play top level schools and there will be sell outs no matter where we play. Just think, Jeff Long was very critical of the crowd in LR. Wonder what he though about Sat. crowd..Just some fodder for the never ending Great Stadium Debate.

This is late Q3, viewing from the South End Zone, out towards the east side then the west side.

The crowd in Fayetteville didn't cause Jeff Long to run the football program into the ground.  He accomplished that all by himself.

I took these pictures after Coastal Carolina went up two scores. You should be able to see the clock in the south end zone at 12:55.

Those pics were not after everyone left following the two score lead.  It was just after the field goal that put them up two scores

I think you are correct. He sure as hell caused my bunch to give up the block of 10 season tickets we had had for many, many years.

I think you'll get a better idea in a couple weeks when MSU comes to town.   Coastal Carolina was not exactly a marquee draw but MSU should be.  If we get our heads handed to us Saturday like I think will happen, people will find other things to do when we play MSU.   It was the same game during Danny Fords last season when my brother and I sat there and saw what a sorry crowd we had and wondered if Frank noticed it.  I'd say he did because Danny was gone shortly thereafter.

It was half full at best so 36 would be generous.

61,800 was the attendance for homecoming in 2014 against UAB, I agree, the MSU game is a better barometer.
