CSU Attendance

CSU Attendance 


I was just listening to caves and Prater and someone who called in said the projected attendance is 30,000. If true, that will not be good at all.

Re: CSU Attendance 


Boisestate football is nothing more than a social gathering for many of the people that rode the wave the last 7-10 yrs. These people couldnt name half of our starters and were only there because it was the " IN" thing to do in town. So losing them is no big loss, what we need is more people to realize that a rabid fanbase is the foundation for a great football program so to the people that do actually " love " the Broncos but choose to never come to games, realize that you play a huge role in the future of the program. If the stadium isnt full consistently Boisestate will be doomed to irrelavence where as if the place is packed we can keep growing it. So if you call yourself a fan, next time you skip out on going to a game because of wanting to avoid late start times or bad opponents etc and there are a bunch of empty seats think about it!

Re: CSU Attendance 


Yep, lots of bandwagon fans jumping off the bus for a myriad of reasons that we have discussed to death (I'm not including those that simply can't afford it as bandwagon fans). One being that we are not dominating anymore, and it's not the "in" place to be. Those kind of people frost me, but unfortunately you need them to fill the seats.

Why is this news? It's an event town... period. It's a town that would sell 60,000 (or more... maybe way more) tickets to an EPL match, a U2 concert, or an NFL preseason game... but will never be able to sell that many to a non-Pac 12 member Boise State game.

The people who think that Boise State would ever sell more than 40,000 to a MWC conference game are homers confined to this board.

Not news. Just pathetic. 40,000 is not realistic but to not reach 30,000 would be pretty sad.

No one who called in has any idea what the attendance will be.  CSU is being talked about for the Access Bowl, and they certainly had one of the most impressive outings of the opening weekend of the five conferences.  If anyone knows that and doesn't go because of this, that, the other, whine, whine, whine, they're just not much of a sports fan.

Re: CSU Attendance 


Surprises me how many bandwagon fans there really are. Let's be honest, football just doesn't mean as much here(most places in the West) as it does down south. If a team out West has a down year or down years, people do not show up to support their team. Just not a BSU thing, more of a regional thing if you ask me.

Re: CSU Attendance 


If bandwagon fans are needed to fill the stadium then the Broncos need to go on a winning streak and get them back on the wagon.

That is reality for Boise State football, achieve excellence and more fans will come to watch the games.

I have my tickets already and love to watch the Broncos regardless of who they are playing, but I don't have that expectation for every Bronco fan.

As Al Davis said "Just win baby"!

Go Broncos!!

Re: CSU Attendance 


For all the whining, bandwagon accusations, and writing off Boise as a football town, it's important to note that attendance is down across all of college football... even down South, where college football's popularity is at its highest. You can thank high-definition TV and the nationalization of the sport for that.

Re: CSU Attendance 



It's Tuesday- How can anyone say attendance will only be 30k? We drew more than that for Tenn-martin, after the Washington debacle, which was way worse than Ole Miss. Seems a lot of worthless worry.

Truth. Plus fans are depressed because we don't have a chance. The team goal is to win the conference but it means nothing to fans when the national media is constantly shoving national implications down their throats. If winning the conference meant an auto birth into a playoff attendance would instantly increase by thousands.

You have players that can put fans in the stands. People want to see great football. Texas A&M filled the stands and their coffers on Manziel???

Re: CSU Attendance 


Oddly enough, I actually see this as a good thing. Unfortunately, as with any business, prices are increased until they can't increaese them anymore. This is not a condemnation, but this is what has happened to BSU.

They have reached the point where the value received, for many fans, is no longer worth the cost. Everyone has their own perception of value, ever changing with the times. For me, the value went down as I had children and actually seeing the game became difficult. It got to the point where I/my wife saw so little of the game, while tending to children, that the price of tickets didn't meet the value received. Compound this with HD and "inexpensive" huge tv's and here I am.

BSU has been surprisingly reactionary to the changing conditions. TV is better than ever, Pete played boring football for half the game (hopefully not an issue anymore), interest in BSU has wained, no-name home slate, etc. Whatever the reason(s), the value of going to the game has decreased for probably every person in Boise. However, they have done little to nothing to combat it.

 

I truly hope that this shocks BSU into doing something about it. I, like thousands of others, can afford season tickets but don't buy since the value simply isn't high enough.
