Go to YouTube and watch some of the games from ‘87-‘98 and you’ll see.


Many sellouts and large crowds (exceeding capacity at times) and we really did “Rock Scott”! Many games like that during the early Groh years as well. But then, the athletic department held on to Groh too long, reseating and the “Great Recession” occurred, and there were lots and lots of empty seats. The London “error” only exacerbated the issue and the fans have never come back. I think we can have big crowds again with some sustained success on the field, some improved outreach by VAF and the ticket office, and some serious improvements in the game day experience.
