    I was going more literal. And I don't consider psych a medical field, they kind of just do whatever they want most of the time.

    Hey gang - the whole point of Reusse's article was about attendance. He starts out by saying they should have good attendance for SDSU.

    He is saying that there are real reasons to be optimistic about the Gopher football team, and that should translate into better attendance.

    If he's setting up anything, it's this:

    if the Gophers are 6-0 or 5-1 midway through the season, and they are still getting 25,000 or 30,000 actual butts in seats at games, then I guarantee you that Reusse will be ripping Gopher fans as frauds. "The fans say give us a winner and we'll show up. Well, they've got a winner, and they're still not showing up." I suspect he might also cast some aspersions at Mr. Coyle's marketing skills.

    I was just digging up a reference to a recent thread...been waiting to say "attachment bias" at the first chance I had.

    I am a gopher fan and I don’t think there are more than 30k gopher fans.

    Anything over 30k are bandwagon people checking it out or visiting fans. 5-0 will produce a big crowd against Nebraska (will probably be one anyways because buskers travel)

    Anything 2 or more losses going into the Maryland game will result in an empty quiet stadium in my
    Opinion.

    If we have more than 15K in the stands for November games, it’ll be an improvement over 2018. Let’s do it!

    Too lazy to look, but have we ever come close to averaging 30 points/game in Big 10 competition? It seems that in the Wacker years we could rack up a ton of yards, sometimes score a lot, and lose often, but I doubt we averaged 30 points per.

    Averaged 35.6 pts. over 8 Big Ten games in Mason's 10-3 season (2003). Averaged 38.7 pts/gm overall (7th in the country) that season. Averaged 35.8 overall two years later in a 7-5 season (11th in the country). Averaged 31.9 in the Big Ten that season but had only a 4-4 conference record. Mason had some pretty high scoring teams.

    So, there is clear precedent for believing that such a thing can be accomplished by a Gopher team.

    Sadly, this is true. I'm trying to organize a corporate outing for the SDSU game. I'm offering $10 tickets for employees and all family; along with a free tailgate. I've got 6 yes, and 72 no so far. There are so few true fans left.
    Please consider donating to this site; especially if you are a frequent poster.

    Thanks, I would not have guessed that. So maybe Reesse's prediction will be correct.

    Maybe it's you and not the gophers. Do you give out that "award" you like to sling around here to your employees too?

    I dont know how you fail to grasp this. To be a true fan, you need to expect us to improve, but also be ready to recognize that we have improved regardless of any measurable metric of success. If you dont think we will improve, you are a "fan" because you are too negative. If you post any tangible metric for success, you are a "fan" because you are setting us up for failure.

    I guess I see it a little bit differently. Maybe it's just semantics, but.....

    I see those 30k fans as the Hard-Core Gopher fan base.

    then, there are another 10-15k who I would call casual Gopher fans. they follow the team, and maybe used to go to games, but in recent years they have quit going to games. I would include the people who dropped their season tickets due to the Donation increase in this category.

    The visiting fans and bandwagon jumpers I would put in a 3rd category. If all three categories show up, it's a sellout. Or in the Dome Days, the crowds that would go over 50k and approach a sellout.
