    With the recent attention to the amount of visible aluminum at a couple of local stadiums as well as discussion about the decline in college football
    [See the full post at: Aluminum Watch – Early Season ACC Attendance]


    I used to have a link to these types of numbers, but I’ve since lost it. Can you post where you got the raw numbers? BTW, I really appreciate all of the analysis from you and the others on these types of topics.


    Avg attendance for Duke is 52,708? That must be a typo. Or maybe the “estimate” by someone at UNC


    Wallace Wade capacity is just under 34K – wondering if the 52K is the combined attendance for the first 2 games. If so, they would be 52K of potentiually 68K, or 76%. No way that place even renovated holds 52K.

    I also find it interesting that the light blue are at only 67% of capacity – they had to expand and build new boxes but……….

    The Duke (and Va Tech) numbers have been corrected, the dangers of copy and paste. Thanks for the heads up.

    The stats come from the NCAA, attendance is under misc reports


    For a little “Tongue-in-Cheek” insight….

    I had posted there and noted the “Rounded” numbers from UNC. I guess the Great Blue Zone Upgrade did not include Ticket Scanners….or they don’t know (or chose) to use REAL data.

    This post could NOT have come at a better time. Thanks to SFN for the stats…

    AL-u-Min-E-um is a visible by-product of 3 qualities:
    1. student body demographics.
    2. live video availability.
    3. HDTV.

    Perhaps Carolina should do like the Jacksonville Jaguars and cover up empty sections.


    Interesting article on this…..

    Read the comments…..maybe some alter ego’s of those here were there….who knows.

    What DID strike me as funny was the line in the article about Duke coming to town and how THAT will fill the stands. YEP….Living Social (and maybe Groupon) has been running a 52% DISCOUNT on the Arch Rivalry GAME OF THE DECADE….

    SO, it will be interesting to see if Kenan is filled on Nov 7.

    Really surprised that someone did not point that out in the comments section of the article.


    Latest “MEDIA” to weigh in….may hit a paywall with the link

    Besides the Bug Howard Tweet, it was a bit informative. Quoting Andrew Carter….

    “An announced crowd of 41,000 showed up at Kenan to watch the Tar Heels’ 48-14 victory against the Illini. And since “announced” crowds are almost always inflated – at UNC and nearly everywhere else, too – that means the actual number of people in the seats was somewhere in the 30,000s.”

    Seems like Andrew suspects that UNC is “Cheating” on the attendance numbers….


    What good is attendance if the program is laughable? UNC has historically had a slight edge in football and a large edge in every other sport. We have to get better as a program for me to feel proud of these peripheral metrics.


    Exactly who’s program is “laughable,” there 44?


    Exactly who’s program is “laughable,” there 44?

    I think we both know to what program he mistakenly refers , CD. He has yet to learn that…

    “You can observe a lot by watching.”

    … or at least how.




    That attendance Saturday was embarrassing for the heels. Of course, the students and alumni may partially embarrassed by the ongoing academic scandal. Given the same set of circumstances and the lack of good tailgating options, I imagine the attendance at the Carter would be awful.

    In general, attendance for noon games suck…of course, I believe if we were beating a big 5 conference team, I am willing to be a digit that at some time on that Saturday – the stadium would be full.

    Our problem as a fan base is in general, we get there late and leave early….but we usually show up for at least some of the game.


    So its an embarrass unto others as they have embarrassed unto you type situation.

    They deserve each other.


    I’m lost as to who deserves whom.

    But I did like the slipping in of the Yogi quote above, ‘foose. Nice.


    Heels like to show their ticket purchases to everyone, they just don’t like actually going to the games!

    Given that Carolina has had attendance problems going all the way back to the Mack Brown era over there, one has to wonder — why have they given up the support of those lovely pine trees by expanding their stadium twice since Mack went to Texas?


    ^ Field of Dreams is a powerful, powerful movie…


    UNCheat counting rogue fans, apparently.


    Game day! Waiting for the blog on the State/USA game.
