    5 of the 10 biggest decreases were in the Pac-12.

    We were the only Top 10 for increases.

    Buffs on the rise!

    Definitely awesome news. Hopefully, it keeps trending up! Bad news with the rest of Pac-12 teams tho. Especially UCLA, since they're seen as a sleeping giant.

    UCLA shouldn't be on that list they are playing away from Pauly in a much smaller venue while they renovate.

    how could attendance be so bad at USC in 2009 where they averaged 5,619. I can't believe it got worse.

    Would have been even worse for them had our fanbase not been so generous enough to show up and take over the Galen Center for them :nod:

    And in regards to UCLA, the renovations to Pauley this year can only be used as so much of an excuse. The truth is UCLA's fan support for basketball is pretty remarkably small for such a storied program.

    I lived in LA for 9 years Pauly is a tough ticket to get when they are winning. Attendance dropped some when they started losing but i am sorry you cant discount the move across town to a ****** old arena for its affects on attendance numbers. Hell USC is closer to UCLA than the Sports arena.

    That's the LA market. That town loves a winner and ignores mediocrity.

    Upstate NY is actually a very nice part of the country.

    it is way more hillbilly than I would have expected. I though Albany was absolutely awful, but the lakes about an hour or so away were interesting in a dueling banjo kinda way

    Agree, except for winter weather and some of the old industrial areas that are struggling. Pretty typical of any area within 100 or so miles of Lakes Ontario and Erie.

    There's not that much of a difference between the 6,352 avg attendance UCLA had this year and the 7,759 they had last year in Pauley.

    CU - 7,804...... Would love to see that number hit 9,000 next season.

    UCLA doesnt make the top-10 if you run of last years number.

    It's a fair assumption that it would have continued to drop even if they had played in Pauley this year. Would it have been higher than 6,352? Probably. Would it be lower than 7,759? Very likely. Last year they were halfway decent (2nd in the Pac and won a game in the Big Dance) whereas this year they didn't even make the NIT.

    a long way for us since you could hear people talking on the other side of the CEC in the late 90's. during play.

    though, part of me still misses the bigger GA sections and 2 beers, nachos and a game ticket for 20$. what a deal! stretch out, enjoy a usually decent Rico Patton team underwhelm or surprise you....

    smile.

    I would be shocked if we don't average over another 1k increase in attendance next year. Going to the NCAA tourney has a way of legitimizing a program for the local fair weather fans who just want to attend a winner.

    I also think that students will see the benefit of going to all the games (men's and women's). That free trip to Vegas would be a big deal.

    FWIW my CU Pac 12 tourney champs T-shirt has gotten more drive-by comments than any other gear I have worn recently. Hopefully the buzz is maintained and CU BBall is still on the radar next winter. I think the incoming Freshmen and Eurotrip should generate at least enough media interest to run a few "Defending PAC12 Champion Colorado Buffaloes" stories out there. That and a, hang the banner game, should give a boost to the crowds early - after the butts are in the seats we all know the rest really takes care of itself.
