Agree withmost of what you say. I heard Stansbury say that tech had sold most of their allocations (8000) ? Looking across the field uk had the lower bowl filled. In fact on the Tech side there were more uk fans sitting.The Jacksonville Times said that this was the smallest turnout in maybe 50 years and cited the Tech fans for the small attendance. They also brought up the fact that Tech did not attend the Orange Bowl in big numbers.I agree that this kind of reputation could effect future bowl invites.I don't really care how many, or why UK fans were there. Or the color shirts UK fans wore.
Our fan BASE was embarrassing yesterday. This was the smallest crowd I have ever seen us take to a bowl game AFTER beating ugag. Especially considering it was in Jax!
Other bowl games will remember this 2nd rate (at best) support when deciding who to invite if they are in that type situation.
If a game in Ireland has that much influence over a good bowl trip, then skip that irish crap. Thank God we were not in the CFP! "Well, we went to Ireland to start the season so we will skip this"
Have read some posts whining again about something reported/not reported in AUC. Anyone stop to think what kind of article they could write about our bowl attendance?
And most important, our S/As DESERVED BETTER GT ATTENDANCE.
And this fan base is going to increase donations to get us out of debt, build better facilities, and help CPJ pay assistants more? (Run TStan, Run)
1 in 6 millionaires? Perhaps.
100% cheapskates? Proof in the pudding.
