And this is why I call BS on the idea that just going FBS will fix UDs attendance issue. The FBS schools we would be aligning with do not offer any more of an appetizing event than CAA. And the OCCASIONAL non conference 2 for 1 deal is just that.....OCCASIONAL......

Wow. Those are some sad numbers. Those Tuesday and Wednesday night MAC games have all the appeal of a Root Canal.

FCS has plenty of attendance warts of their own, look at the CAA.

Elon averaged 7,020 in a playoff season, and that's DOWN from last year.
Maine - averaged 6,858 , down over a thousand from last year
URI averages a whole 4,448
Stony Brook in a playoff year packs them in at 7,355 per game
Towson who had turned things around getting more than 8K per game when they were good is back down to 5,377 per game
Albany draws 5,802 per game
Villanova announces a whole 5,649 per game
W&M who had all their upgrades & had a JMU sellout this season to boost, still only got 8,236, a decrease of about 2,000 per game.
