I think the attendence stat is misleading, it only counts tickets sold, and students dont buy tickets- remember they get in for free!
True, and I hope students continue to show up and the turnout improves. But the reported # would also include ticket purchasers who didn’t show up and I’ll bet that group is larger than the number of students who showed up for free. Attendance has always been pretty paltry but it seems like this year is off to an even worse start for some reason. Could be the timing of games as LU15 mentioned or the preoccupation by the athletic department and student body on Leh-Laf 150. Maybe the new minor league hockey team in allentown in stealing local sports fans that may have otherwise checked out a game or two. Hopefully the crowds pick up somewhat for PL play, because an average in the 600’s is thoroughly embarrassing.
