Interesting.  And seven of those who finished ahead of us are historically black schools that undoubtedly played "home" games off campus in large cities with significant African-American populations.  Those games are important community events in the South that date back to the brutal days of complete racial segregation.  In "on-campus" only games, we probably are still in the top ten in attendance, which might well be a reflection of the state of FCS football across the nation.

Surprised with UNI

Boy 1AA, I knew you have pretty important persons on your blog, but this almost reads like POTUS Trump is a member!  Blacks in black towns don't count when you are figuring attendance for black schools?  Maybe we should count them as 3/5ths of a white person like the US Constitution did?

Minus the VINDY and lack of promotion of YSU's sports I would think our attendance will decline some more.

Penguinpower.

Thanks.  The simpletons almost drove me from this site, but I decided to just ignore them.  I will occasionally share information with those that have the capacity to comprehend intelligent discourse.

Way to completely miss what he was saying there champ. Where did he remotely infer that black fans didn't or shouldn't count?

What he was actually saying was, a lot of the HBCU games are rivalry games that are held in bigger cities where they can draw upon a larger pool of fans. And he's right.

The Bethune Cookman vs Florida A&M game had drawn 70k plus at the Camping world stadium(citrus bowl) in Orlando.

This implication remains clear to me.  Black schools draw better in black communities, and by implication the additional fans are "obviously" black).  That is a racist comment.  It may be TRUE, but that doesn't make it not racist.

Normally when someone makes an idiotic statement I just read it and move on.  But go guins, your comment regarding what Wick said is totally out of line.  Wick made a very interesting analysis.  Everyone is a "racist" when someone's comment or belief doesn't align with our own beliefs.  I'm so sick and tired of everyone calling everyone else a "racist."  There is so much division in this country and now I can't even read this board without someone calling someone else a "racist."

Ditto. I don’t think the intent of Wick was racial at all!  Didn’t Rodney King say “Can’t we all just get along.”.  Let’s get excited for the upcoming Football season!
