    Like a Groundhog day moment again. Our yearly guess the attendance thread. Can not wait (if I'm young enough) to see Folsom filled again.

    Actual attendance or tickets purchased? I imagine most of the tickets were purchased before the debacle last week, so it should be higher than we expect. 43,000.

    Real attendance for Utah last year was ~32000 (reported over 39000). In 2014 there was no home game at Folsom that had over 40,000. And those numbers were all tickets distributed and were inflated over actual attendance.
    It will be a function of how well CU did on season ticket sales. I expect the walkup crowd to be small and student attendance may not be good. The noon kickoff may hurt a little bit. I would say 33,000 actual - 38,000 reported.

    UMass will bring about 3 fans, so we won't get the usual boost of a couple thousand from visitors. Start time sucks, but there should be a decent amount of freshmen who show up as they're largely still unaware of the horrors of being a CU fan. The usual locals who attend frequently will be inclined to see the first home game.

    This would be my guess and reasoning as well. I am not sure they go over 40k this year unless they enter the Oregon game 4-1.

    I'm not sure how inflated the numbers will be. Last year the home opener was against a ranked Arizona State team and it was the blackout game in prime time. Paid attendance was still only 38,547, but there did seem to actually be that many people there.
    My guess is that the actual crowd will be around 30-32,000
    Paid attendance might be just barely above 35,000. I'll say 35,420.
    You guys predicting 40,000+ are out of your minds. We'll get that for Oregon and maybe some of the last three conference games if the team is actually good.

    The Oregon game drew 45,000 in 2013, which was actually a worse season on average than last year if you take that game out of the equation.

    Fans need to show up to this game even if they are frustrated. The season is early, the team needs our support. I'm flying in from Phoenix, hope there is a good turnout.

    If we go 2-11 then it can be time to make a point and not show up. But for now, support the team.

    I agree with you completely but unfortunately I think many fans have taken a "guilty until proven innocent" approach to this team. They'll only show up once they start winning.

    Not sure on how to post a tweet but....


    @RyanKoenigsberg: With four days until the home opener, Colorado has sold just 4,504 student season tickets. They sold about 7,000 last year. #CUBuffs

    Judging by the 3 emails I've received this week for $25 tickets I'll say 29,750.
