The pics of JSU homecoming had a lot of empty seats.

I'm sure. Memorial Stadium holds 63K.
Nah.. It's actually more like 48k.
Funny thing I've read it has 60K and other places 44K after modifications. :shrug:
I think it's safe to say that the stadium own site would know. If not.... *shrug*

This historical venue was originally built in 1950 is owned and operated by Jackson State University. After expanding in 1980, and more recent modifications it now accommodates 44,215 people with bleacher seating. This great facility's horseshoe configuration is ideally suited for sporting events, concerts and other performance events.

Miles at Benedict (Homecoming) 9383

8k were in the zone tailgating.   :shrug:

Is there any way the tailgating could have been fenced off and the only way people could enter the tailgating area is with a gameday ticket?

That's exactly how it is. My point was only a small amount of that 9k actually entered the stadium.
Never discuss cheese with a rat, bread with a bird or make moves with a snake.

This continued conversation about attendance while your football team is losing is baffling to me

Not as baffling as a winning team who can't consistently sell out their 21K seat stadium.

I thank God JSU fans actually support their school and team in large numbers whether they win or lose.

as long as the bills are paid , don't really understand why the attendance is the be all be all. Winning the game is what i thought was most important in an athletic contest but maybe not

If a topic about tailgating comes up, why talk about who has the best STEM program?

Stop trying to "All Lives Matter" this topic.

Bwhahaha, instead of boasting about numbers that really have no bearing on anything , why not share ideas on how schools can increase their attendance. There are plenty of school leaders who are on this site and would possibly use your idea.

And since i'm ALL LIVES MATTERING this topic, Congrats to JSU on leading the HBCU world in attendance

Actually, JSU leads the entire FCS in attendance...again.

I merely post the numbers so I'm sorry if it comes off as boasting.

I will be glad to share ideas to improve the culture of support, especially at A&T. You Aggies have a disconnect with the local community which was once a strong bond during the Hayes era and in the mid 2000s. You guys need to start polling your constituents on which OOC teams THEY would like to see A&T play at home and on the road.

You develop a fan base.  With a fan base it doesn't matter who you play.   Don't be like FSU and only show up depending on the other school's band.

A&T is top 20 in attendance every year. Even when we were 0-fer. A&T is committed to WINNING and becoming a FCS power. I understand that everyone isn't interested but that's fine. Hell we had 16k plus on a Thursday night. We have no issues in Greensboro.

Congrats again on being the number 1 attendance champ in FCS.

We had 24,000 for our Thursday night game.  My point is, for A&T to be better than both Alabama and Clemson, they should easily sell out their stadium every home.

You develop a fan base.  With a fan base it doesn't matter who you play.   Don't be like FSU and only show up depending on the other school's band.

A fan base definitely has to be developed in order to get that buy-in of supporting regardless of who the team is playing.  The operative term there is "develop". Start the development (fan base, financial support, etc) their freshman year.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
