    A loss to uga and i predict plenty of empty seats vs vandy, our cupcake and if sow remains undefeated, lots of empty seats as fans don't want to witness butt kicking at the hands of sow.

    I would assume its obvious staff changes will need to be made before or after season, and I would hope with OC. Having said that that may slow progress in learning a new offense but worth the change. I still don't think next year will be much better. A 7 win season next year ought to get WM canned. Even an 8 win season should imo.

    I believe it will start to show more in the stands, like it has already.

    We could be winless and I would still go the fsu game. Lots of recruits on the line there. Plus, and just as importantly, it's fsu!

    Did you see the Swamp today? Completely empty! Apathy has set in.

    On the bright side, we can get reasonably priced tickets again.

    WLOCP attendance will be standard - mostly full. Both teams are absurdly hobbled and will draw considerable media attention. And it's a rivalry game...

    Vandy will be Vandy. If it's a night game, expect what we saw at Arkansas, minus ~1000. If it's a day game, expect what we saw for the season opener.

    Cupcake will be horrible. May have lost to USC and/or UGA at this point. Fans realize we are going to the Gator or Outback bowl and tune it out. Large gaps of seats open, similar to 2011

    FSU will be full. It is always full. It was full in 2011, it will be full this year. If Gators don't use their tickets, FSU fans will happily snatch them up, especially if they win tonight. Even if they don't, they'll enter as a 1 loss team with possible BSCNCG implications (If Bama/Oregon slip up, the rest honestly don't look that good besides FSU, it's true). Could be as much as 40% FSU fans, but the seats will be full.

    Well, my wife and I were considering a trip to the UF vs. fsu game this year, but we changed our minds about midway through the 3rd quarter....

    Fans should always be at the game, no matter how the team has played. That reason alone for not attending defines a fair weather fan
