Did they count the graves in the neighboring cemetery when they counted the attendance at the Sacramento State game?

It’s interesting that for every game at our stadium how many empty seats there are between the 40’s on the West side. Aren’t these locked up by the old folks who never show, but keep them just in case? There must be a way to get people in the seats....maybe some type of buy-out? It’s very visible from the East side.
Now, dammit, get out there and HURT somebody!

Probably corporate seats that don't get used. Bought for tax reasons or for community relations.

Great crowd Saturday and as loud as any all season. Largest attendance of all playoff games in the country. Bobcat fans comparing "attendance vs. capacity" "metro area size" "attendance vs. average attendance last year" and trying to claim a win over everyone but NDSU.

With all those students (free tickets!) and imported Californians I'd have expected a little more out of little brother.
