We barely broke 6k for Marquette and Wisconsin. That doesn't seem 'fine.' I just know what I saw, and that is all I can speak on. The SEC games were better, and yes, the atmosphere was much better than it had been in the previous years. I felt almost the same type of energy that existed during and before the championship years. The only glaring problem was butts in the seats. Paid attendance is much different than actual attendance, and I am not entirely sure how to fix that. Insti makes a good point. I think last year the ticket office started some program to get more people to use or donate their tickets, but I don't remember what that was called. I also don't recall what effect that had on attendance.
