I know it was Thanksgiving weekend and a blizzard across the mid-west but the highest attendance in the FCS playoffs was less than 5,000.

Just an observation ... Not a comparison.

For Jackson State...Now I ain't trying to be starting something but with fan attendance like that why are you all not as successful with your football teams?  :shrug: If we had fans like that we could afford to hire the best coaches and give a lot of full scholarships to some of the best players.

To be honest, JSU fans are going to show up to support regardless of the record. Six of our games were either decided by less than 10 points or were given up by poor coaching in the 2nd half (BCU, South Alabama, Bama State). We will be a force next season and I'm certain the attendance will rise.

Now that I am living here in the Deep South I got to get over to Jackson next season to experience a game.  They are doing the damn thing with attracting folk to their games.

I’ve been to a few JSU games and I can honestly say that the game day experience is amazing. Reminded me how S.C. State was in the early 2000’s.

Jackson State has always had the best fan support in HBCU football regardless of their record. Just think what support they would have if they start to win again. They are amazing. One year they averaged over 28,000 fans a game.  :bow: :bow:
