2009 W&M loss was the dropoff. Early-mid 2000s had stellar attendance.


According to Wikipedia, from 2001-2008, we had 23 games with 60k+ in attendance and only four with less than 53k. We also didn't have our first sub-50k game until 2009 and that was the week after we lost to W&M.

Since that 2009 season opener, we have had 26 games with fewer than 40k fans and only one that broke the 60k mark, being the 2011 game against VT that we lost 38-0.

Talk about a massive decline
