UT explains how they got 36k into a 26k stadium
I'm having an interesting conversation with some Toledo fans. It's a thread about the largest crowds in the MAC. I posted ours, and relayed my skepticism of UT's announced crowds.

Apparently, they can get 10,000 people (more than a third of their capacity) into the press box and on the sidelines. lmfao

Sure you can..................... Trying to be polite and act like I believe them. :shhh:

yeah, I saw that thread earlier. When will our ahtletic dept. wise up and start "fudging" the numbers a bit? I may be incorrect, but don't we count butts in seat (turnstile) instead of tickets sold?

I think UT counts people in cars...................driving by the stadium. It's quite creative. I agree, we need to emmulate it.

Can we count Amtrak passengers too? That'd probably help

UT counts butts in seats too.
Then UT needs to learn how to count.

UT might fudge numbers but it can't even compare to the 30,000 people at the WMU/CMU game last year. They must have counted me several hundred times. I don't know what would be worse: telling a lie that you had 30,000 people at a game, or having 27,000 leave a game early because of bad weather.

At least UT gets good fan support regardless of whatever number they report.

CMU counted
tickets sold plus students. We are no different than anyone else. The weather kept many people with tickets from showing up. I guess it kept your team from showing up as well. 04-rock
