ESPN has a blog entry (linked here) reviewing the ANNOUNCED attendance at each respective ACC school.
NC State’s level of fan support continues to support a thesis that our football program should at the very least be the top of the second tier of the ACC if not the bottom of the ‘first tier’. Hopefully next season will provide us the kind of ‘break-through’ we seek.
No. 15 Clemson (547,635)
No. 16 Florida State (544,893)
No. 28 Virginia Tech (397,398)
No. 32 NC State (394,008)
No. 33 North Carolina (392,000)
No. 39 Miami (340,576)
No. 41 Georgia Tech (337,622)
No. 43 Virginia (335,582)
No. 51 Maryland (296,484)
No. 65 Wake Forest (223,769)
No. 68 Boston College (214,255)
No. 79 Duke (170,748)
It continues to be an absolute travesty that UNC-CH is allowed to so blatantly lie about their attendance at each game. We all know the truth that is reinforced with each televised game and each Twitter comment from local media who made weekly comments about the number of empty seats in Kenan Stadium each Saturday.
Stay classy and ethical, Tar heels! At least we have another data point of just how awful the understanding of math is in Orange County.
If the media and the ACC office don’t have the scruples and fortitude to call out UNC for years of LYING about something that is RIGHT IN FRONT OF EVERYONE’S EYES…how do you think you would get accurate and ethical reporting on things that go on behind the scenes?
By the way…whatever happened to Butch Davis’ 216 telephone records?
