This. All teams won't be good at the same time. Those who are not good will likely not have sellouts.Attendance smack from Frog fans is bad look. Glass houses and all of that. Attendance can be a tough nut to crack for a university in a major city. UCLA, Miami, SMU, etc. We‘ve had our issues as well.
Consistent w/what we saw on tv. 1st game they could have given 1,000s to high schoolers to fill it in and build the base. Something we did back in the day. Lots of those kids are now frog fans v tech,it and ag. Seems like that started w/the great Lois Winkleman?The crowd wasnt that bad. It was probably 80% full at peak, with mostly the homeside upperdeck being sparsely populated.
It thinned out immediatepy after they started booing the offensive coordinator for running into brick walls in the third. The student section checked out at that point.
Amon Carter wasn't any better off on fans during the butt whippings we took towards the end of Patterson's era. Coog fans have checked out on Dana. I get it. They gave thier fans few chances to cheer yesterday. The Frogs strangled them sloppily for a half, and as they weakened in the second half, we finished it efficiently while whispering softly in thier ear.
Still a good 15k ton17k more than we pulled in when I was in school. We used to dream of averaging 30k. The only sell outs were when UT and Arkansas showed up with their hordes looking for a blow out…Folks bashing Houston fan like we're one of the 10 or 12 programs in the country immune to losing/fan apathy. We are not.
We rolled out 37 and 35k "official" attendance numbers for WVU and Kansas games as recently as 2021. 35k for the FCS game to start that season too.
Not criticizing, Froglaw, but I always chuckle when people complain about Houston humidity. You mean a city by the ocean is humid? Who'd have thought?Humidity sux.
I don't think anyone would be criticizing them for occasional poorly attended games against distant and bad opponents in the middle of terrible seasons.Attendance smack from Frog fans is bad look.
