Depends somewhat on the school. UVA has never had a history of intense

student love for inter-collegiate athletics. When I attended UVA, in fact there was a rather intense feeling the other way by a large percentage of the students. I recall many candidates for Student Council running on platforms ensuring that UVA will never become a "State-U," specifically including big time intercollegiate sports & even having cheerleaders. Obviously times have changed some, but many students here have no interest in it even now. Of course we see the thousands in the stands, on the hill & know that the fraternities make the games, at least the first half of them. But thousands of other students are elsewhere on the grounds or have gone home during football games, students that we don't see. As UVA hits over 20,000 undergraduate students, even if only a third of that number care, that's enough to fill the student sections & the hill. But it masks the reality that plenty of students here are not interested. Football games probably rank way down the list on why high school kids want to come here.
