Student attendance is down nationwide, and the PL schools have become ‘geekier’. Along with so many more diversions today than 40 years ago when going to any game was THE diversion, plus I think there is less ‘bonding’ with the student body. Most athletes are no longer ‘on campus’ with frat brothers or dorm mates. Coaches dissuading fraternities, so the players move off campus with some teammates. They live in separate worlds from other students. Years ago, the frats showed up in force to support their brothers..that’s 500-1,000 guys right there. With the harrassment directed toward the tailgating students (must tear down and remove before going to game) they tear down, cart the stuff home and then stay to watch on TV and drink, which they can’t do at Goodman. A whole combination of factors at play, unfortunately.
