They aren't going to tell you what the real crowd is - you'll get tickets sold anyway.

Isn't it supposed to stop raining anyway?

If a significant percentage of this "fan base" can't handle occasional rain off & on with weather in the 60s during game time, they're a sorry excuse for college FB fans. But we already knew that anyway.

The wine and cheese crowd will be gonzo. So the energy level at the Rent will be the same sans the occassional golf claps.

Good news is that I'll probably be able to move to chairbacks at midfield. 4 in my party today. Usually around 9 or 10.

Keep in mind that the listed attendance is all tickets sold, not how many people came to the game. If season ticket holders buy tickets and don't show up because of the threat of rain, they're still included in the listed attendance. The number of people who actually attended the game is never known.
With that in mind,
Listed Attendance: 37, 819
Actual Attendance: About 29,000 (but we will only be able to estimate)

I think we should expand The Rent.

(Sorry, couldn't resist)

Both Herbst and Calhoun mentioned how The Rent could be expanded to 55,000 in interviews a few weeks back. Stadium size (and not just attendance) is a factor in the way people perceive a football program - as shallow as it may be.

Yes. But so does how full the stadium looks on TV. And unless we want to pay people to spend three hours sitting their butt in a seat, seeing a 55K stadium half empty is going to reflect poorly on us.

My cousin's wedding is today and I have to miss the game.

Can't express how angry this makes me.
