    Night games would be a big help for Tech attendance issues.

    Very very hot. I’ve lost like 8 pounds in sweat, out here supporting the team.

    2pm might be the worst possible start time. Hell, noon is better just because you're done by 3pm.

    Would enjoy night games early in season. Not sure about late Saturday night parking security.

    Too many assholes on the game thread bitching about lack of tv coverage. Buy a ticket and you won’t care.

    I tought it looked better than the last few years against a team of that type. More in the Upper East and a few more in the upper North.

    The heat did keep some away and some likely out of their seats.

    Frat blocks were fine once the game actually started.

    Most of them filled in eventually but it definitely wasn't by the start of the game. The section closest to the home side was almost permanently empty except for when shade crept in the top couple rows and people moved only into the shade.

    Attendance was decent, and it seemed to be a younger and more diverse crowd than past seasons.

    It was definitely hot in the lower-upper east. I hit the water station 1/2 dozen times in the first half alone. The station at the NE end of the stadium ran dry midway through the third, so I trekked down to the SE corner for 3 more fill ups in the second half. Hydrating last night and then during the game definitely helped ...but getting the W makes it worth it.

    The attendance saw about 15% of the people spend their time under the decks than actually in their seat. So you didn’t see everyone that was there at any given time.

    This. Our section had literally about 2/3 of the people after half that it had prior to half. Either they got so hot they left or they were hanging out in the shade.
