agree and to throw in another wrinkle, so many of the people who are going to the in and out 2 hours basketball games are the same people we need to get football attendance over the hump.I think part of it is with a basketball game your in and out in 2 hours and you can move on with your day. With football...and I get this from a lot of people I work with who would be your typical "casual fan"...they don't want to invest 4+ hours of their Saturday at the Dome.
Insert jokes here, but I think the length of a college football game and how it just ties up your entire day for the most part is a big part of it with the casual fan. With that said, I think Saturday at 7:30pm this game will be a near sellout
there are only so many days in a year you can waste going to the dome.
i think basketball eats away at football because people look ahead. football attendance is not that bad considering that with the population. there are some real diehards
