Interesting piece from ESPN about the dwindling student attendance at college football games. Since I live in the upstate of SC I often hear about attendance issues at Clemson regarding students on their sports radio shows.
I think this is a good time for a poll. Why are students staying away? I’m going to use myself as example, because I think students will think some of the same things. If the game I’m going to is a poor matchup, I’ll often wait until the last minute to go the stadium and leave early if there are more compelling games across the nation especially if the game I’m at is already well in hand. I don’t know I guess that makes me a bad fan, but it certainly would help if stadiums had Wifi service that let you keep with other scores.
What else can stadiums do to get students to games?
