    Man, I guess.

    We have to have more than 40k fans that aren't fairweather.

    (I'll be there)

    I live 5 hours away and don't have enough money to buy tickets or make the drive there. Im not rich, I live pretty close to pay check to pay check at this time. But I can tell you this, if I had the money, I would be at every game. If I had the money, even though I haven't attended UF (yet), I would contribute like a booster.

    Does that answer your question?

    I'm hearing smack talk from uga fans here in Jax. They allegedly sold their allotment plus some. Theses guys actually think it may be a 65/35 split with more red & black....

    Fair weather....or are they telling Foley something? Seems more like the latter to me. UF has never had attendance problems before.

    Man, the economy at some point cannot explain this alone...
    We never had problems under Zook selling out games, especially the WLOCP.

    I think this is a glaring indictment of our brand of football by the fan base, right or wrong.

    Muschamp had better figure this offense problem out quickly because boring AND losing ain't putting butts in the seats and when revenue suffers, well, that's the beginning of the end...

    Might have something to do with the "not so fair" weather. Isn't it supposed to be cold and rainy?

    Not going to touch my response, are you? Not everyone can be a rich lawyer.. Next time you question someone, keep in mind that in this economy not everyone is doing so great.

    I have frozen my ass off, sweltered and been rained on numerous times at the WLOCP. It never stopped anyone before.

    I didn't look it up but someone said UGA sold their allotment. They have the same record as we do and lost to Vandy.

    So UGA fans are better than UF fans?

    It does, but there is a larger message here.

    If you're Joe Schmoe fan, how do you get through to your AD? He's not gonna give a crap about your message board posts, your letters to the sports editor or your e-mails. Large swathes of empty seats however sends a message he simply cannot ignore. Fans of EVERY school have made that calculation at various times.

    Im just going to assume you are saying the economy is the problem, for some of us it is.. But it doesn't seem to deter a fanbase that lives in another state.

    If Im assuming wrong feel free to correct me.

    This.

    The actual weather has nothing to do with it. I too have sat through freezing cold and/or rainy FL-GA games that were all packed...

    I am only an Orange and Blue booster and I have the ability to buy tickets. I think it is just season ticket holders that can buy them...

    at some point, fair weather or not, their has to be an entertaining product on the fields. Win or lose, you need something that is exciting to watch.
