The reason for the bad attendance for football is because 40 years of losing will do that to a fanbase plus when we have good years like in 2002 when we were 5 minutes away from going to a bowl game it leaves everyone heartbroken.

The basketball team outdraws the football team on a few occasions in the year. We have strong basketball history so fan support for basketball is pretty steady.

Hopefully this is the year with a senior loaded team that we go to a bowl game. A bowl game will be huge for fan support.
