The FCS championship drew an audience of 1.07 million-opposite NFL playoffs. That was a little less than the average. When Sam Houston played in finals almost 3 million watched because of Houston market. The lower bowls averaged between 1-2 million this past bowl season. There is very little interest nationally for football under the Power 5 Conferences. I agree that the move up is probably not worth the amount of money it take to be even mildly competitive. Eventually I hope the MAC realizes the futility of trying to be relevant at that level and joins the FCS.

NKU was 3-17 vs YSU in Horizon Tournament. Brandon is such a force on the boards. Good representation by Horizon in NCAA and NIT. IUPUI and Green Bay being rated two of lowest rated teams in DI hurt leagueís overall rating.

Letís assume 15 home games with 500 students a game(which is a big assumption.) That would be an additional $37,500. I think the students should get in free. We went 14-3 at home and could have easily won each of the three games we lost. I believe the students are integral part of crowds and would not start charging for them. Almost all major universities allow their students in for free.

Mutual Ohio paid for all the students-which much have not counted toward attendance. And if the go by tickets scanned who knows. My ticket is rarely scanned and I could have literally walked in for free.

If capacity is 6,300 and the crowd was 4,100 that meant the was room for 2,200 more fans last night.

Whoever counts attendance needs to find a new job. I would bet my life there was at least 6k there last night. That's embarra$$ing to say 4100.

We have been inflating crowd sizes all year. No harm in that. We were not cheating anybody.  The biggest joke was claiming that there were 5500 in attendance for the Detroit game when the 1380 seats in the west stands were not even pulled out.

This was different. A big chunk of the proceeds, perhaps all, had to be given to the NIT.

If capacity is 6,300 and the crowd was 4,100 that meant there was room for 2,200 more fans last night?

Somebody must have already posted thisÖ

Youngstown fans are the biggest front runners in the history of college athletics


Lecter in your world of sports do crowds get larger with prolonged losing? I canít remember any times in my life when someone said ďwhat a terrible season weíre having-I hope there will be tickets available for the next game.Ē

When Akron went 2-10 this past season in football we you surprised that the crowds got smaller as the season went on?

I just left Beeghley assuming it was a sellout. I asked Ticket Office Attendant and she said 4,000-not as many students.. Announced crowd was 4.009. Hard to believe.

The NIT is still a good consolation after a disappointing ending. Itís the equivalent of playing in a minor bowl in FBS-teams with name recognition not really playing for anything. No Madison Square Garden ending this year though-semiís and finals in Las Vegas for next three years.

If the athletic departmentís goal for Calhoun was to stir interest in a moribund basketball program, he has exceeded expectations. I canít remember the sustained interest in YSU basketball, albeit for just over a month, by the student body. I went to my first YSU game in 1974 when Elite Eight and Top Ten Pitt filled Beeghley. But even then there wasnít a student section.We have filled Beeghley here and there since, but usually for an ESPN game.  This year is the first year our games had the feel of a bonafide college  basketball program. But as I posted earlier in the season, Calhoun really hasnít had a signature win in his six years. If NKU reaches the Sweet 16, the NKU beat down at Beeghley this season would be his first. His strength has been his ability to recruit which is 75% of a teamís success. The 25% coaching, which is essential in tournament play, has been lacking.

Watched Northern Kentuckyís head coach Darrin Hornís comments following his victory over YSU. Before Horn took any questions, he congratulated YSU on their season and said emphatically that Jarrod Calhoun was the deserving Coach of the Year. He said YSU should extend his contract and give him a large raise for the job he has done at YSU.

The Horizon is the 21st ranked conference but is hurt by Green Bay and IUPUI being two of the four lowest-rated teams in DI.
