    Good.

    It's painful, but good. Exactly what we need to send a message.

    The smaller the crowd the better.

    I feel sorry for the players, particularly the seniors. Tough to go out like this.

    Even though they can deny the problem by announcing an inflated figure including unused tickets sold and tickets basically given away the number will still be one of the lowest in recent history.

    Even more telling inside the offices will be the numbers based on concessions, parking, etc.

    Can't blame the weather, can't blame it on people not being able to get off work, can't blame it on a competing NFL game or anything else.


    This is all due to fed up fans, I would guess that there are seats empty that haven't been empty in decades. Even the long-time die-hards have lost interest.

    The crowd actually doesn't look all that bad on TV. Looks better than I thought it would be. :huh:

    Agreed. I'm guessing the tv guys were planning on a lot of very tight shots, but it does look pretty decent.

    For all those who attended, you are part of the reason why the leadership refuses to make changes. You deserve the product that is on the field and the same one that will be back next year.

    I understand why you made the choice not to attend, but you blaming the fans is as lame as the media/B4L cats blaming the supporters of the program for things being as bad as they are. Not cool, iyam.

    That's way too harsh. Unfair. I'm as outspoken as anyone and it killed me today to not go in and send off the seniors the right way. A lot of the fans who went to the game today had a similar decision and decided the other way. It's really hard to love CU football while hating the way CU football has been managed. No easy choice on what to do with tickets.

    Without a coaching change, renewals will see another 10-20% dip (minimum).

    No season tickets for me next year, not to watch this garbage. Patience has run out on the admin. I am sure they will bitch and moan about lack of support and fickle fans. Attendance has been pretty strong thru 8 years of crap so **** them.

    They have to know that, don't they? There have to be significant enough change to give ticket buyers some hope. We all know the D coaches are toast, so for me, I think hope is tied to a REAL O-Coord. Tedford? Stitt? Someone with some credentials to run the spread. I don't think you can sell any belief that next year will be different without it. Embo has to have the guts to make that type of change and not be a victim of his long time friendship with EB.

    It filled in a bit for the first half. It might have looked pretty full on the sideline views, because almost everyone in the shade to start moved over into the sun on the east side.

    Pretty empty after half time.

    I was going to estimate 35k, but 39k seems plausible

    "Tickets distributed" not "Tickets sold"

    Absolutely, I understand that. Based on what I saw on TV, 39k seems plausible because it didn't look nearly as empty as I thought it would.

    No, I just thought it was interesting the AD used the word distributed and not sold. That is all.

    First off: timbuff is a douchenozzle. He's been embarrassing himself since he first logged onto AllBuffs. GFY.

    Second of all did anyone catch the radio add that said kids under 13 were admitted free?
