I expected Wyoming to draw better. God help Nevada if they ever suck.

We're up 10% over last year and putting around 78% of Laramie's population in the stadium and averaging 81% capacity. And those are fans in attendance, not tickets sold.

Still, the TCU game was an embarrassment. That game had Conference Championship implications! And after what happened this weekend even more so!!! 17k in the stands. Embarrassing. All because of a forecast that never ended up happening! I am hopeful that this weekend, we can sell the place out after a huge win against AF.

Current stadium construction has temporarily limited TCU's seating capacity to 32,000.

No way there was over 30k at AF. I would say it was not half full....it was a miserable day. The tail gate tents were pretty much totalled, the side of my head felt sandblasted, if you didnt weigh 200# the wind pushed you around. When we walked out of the motel there was tumble weeds a hundred feet in the air.

Listen asshat. Wyoming's fanbase goes well beyond Laramie and in fact goes into northern Colorado, western Nebraska and southeastern South Dakota. They do have a pretty big fanbase. I do not expect people from Green River or Cody to make a trip to every game but in case you haven't noticed the Cowboys are pretty good this year. They should fill The War completely full.
Colorado State is having a piss poor year and they are still beating you in attendance. That alone should motivate people to go to Laramie on Saturday.

There's already 50k tickets out for the BSU @ SDSU game. I expect a big walkup so we may set a season high this week.

If you understood the weather and road dynamic, you'd have a much better understanding of how the weather can impact attendance. Just for an example, I attended both the TCU game (two Saturday's ago) and the men's basketball game in Laramie this past Saturday. Roads out of Laramie were closed due to weather both Saturdays, causing me to spend the night in Laramie vs. driving back home 45 miles to Cheyenne. Driving over the I 80 summit to Cheyenne, even when it's open is a very tough drive. Many fans that direction (Cheyenne, Northern Colorado, Nebraska and South Dakota) choose not to do the white knuckles and/or get stranded.

Agree or disagree, that's a dynamic most team's fans do not have to deal with. Personally, I'm very impressed with the number of fans that venture out despite the weather.

Its official. The bottom has dropped out on Steve Fairchild. There is no question that CSU will be looking for a new coach soon.

Hey f--kball, we have a strong fanbase and are within a 3 hour drive, in decent weather, for around three million people, but in Wyoming's sometimes severely inclement weather this time of year, if the roads are even open, 5 miles might as well be a trip to the moon. The fact that a program that won 3 games last season, got blown out by Utah State, and draws from a local population of 30K (versus over 500K in Boise), yet still is averaging over 80% stadium capacity is successful by any measure. Get back to me when over 70% of your city is packed inside your stadium.

I love Boise fan talking attendance smack to Wyoming when they only average 10k more and are a Top 10 team in a significantly larger city...

50K will put us over the 40K average for the season.

here's the deal, from Laramie to the Colo border, to the Neb border and about 100 miles north and 100 miles west, at the very most that total population is less than 150,000 people. Having 30,000 people is 20% of the that entire population. Its doable, but is not going to happen very often and isn't going to happen for a team that hasn't had that many winning seasons this past decade.
Certainly if a few thousand of the visiting schools fans come that helps a lot. But games like UNLV and probably NM might only bring 100 fans for them. But as it stands 24000 is very good crowd for Pokes at home unless the other team brings more than that - ie. Texas, Neb, Boise, BYU, AF, CSU. I'm hoping Pokes can do 20,000 this Sat with a decent forecast and I'll be there traveling 160 miles to get there myself.
But 24,000 (or more) is the number the Pokes should be trying to get every game imo which would be very good.

Yep, I called over 40k before the season. We may come in just shy of that because CSU Fresno stinks so bad though.

Weve been at over 100% capacity every game.. We could have sold 40k+ tickets for TCU and AFA.

If that's true then how come you don't jack up your prices? Otherwise you're leaving money on the table. You can always drop them when you get increased capacity.

Just out of curiosity, what's a season ticket between the 40's in Boise? Including minimum donation?

That's last year's price, it might have changed this year. I moved to the 35, which is $700 plus cost of tickets.

If we can win the next two, or even split, I think the Fresno game will still have interest. Even if they are as bad as New Mexico.
