    With strength of conferences being partially determined on attendance, there is a reason to care. I think the conversation in any thread tends to drift off topic with unsubstantiated comments, such not counting butts in the seats or making up numbers become the topic. I only know what I read on these message boards, to once again quote the signature of KULawJack. I fear he will soon be sending me a bill for my constant mentioning of his signature.

    Go to their athletic website and find the photo gallery of the game. Im not sure where the 2000 people were sitting but i sure didnt see that many. And a comment on the coyote board about the great student turnout. It was totally empty on one end. Maybe the photos were of the second half, 4th quarter, a couple minutes left in the game and everyone had left

    Check highlight film. There are a few fans on end of one side of bucket on visitor's end. The other end is the cheer and dance groups. The center area has some people scattered up and the club side has some as well. It is a hard call with the ends so vacant. 2000 fills Frost visually much quicker.

    Here is a picture of SCSC. It is a great venue that seats 6000 for the Coyotes. I am guessing this is the game from 2016-17 when the Jackrabbits were there and there was 5265 attending. There seems to be some blue in the crowd.

    I care, too. Attendance figures should be accurate, not PR BS. And they should be defined as whether it's butts in seats or tickets theoretically sold and allotted.

    I'm with you. I think the better question is why care?

    I don't know if there is a big difference or not but many people in the MBB thread think that you don't need more than 7 players. Nagy didn't do it, TJ is close to doing it this year and AJ did it two years ago when he played the starters and Boever and Cornemann off the bench. I like more depth but 7 seems to work.

    More prepared if there's an injury (heaven forbid) bug. Plus, you just waste a players time developing them if you don't start them from day 1. Having a strong bench is a good thing. I think I read, maybe on this board even, that someone quoted AJ as saying something like "if they aren't good enough to play, then they aren't good enough to be a Jackrabbit". I take that to mean if you do a good enough job recruiting players, you shouldn't have any problems playing them. It starts with recruiting the right players and the SDSU coaching staff does an excellent job at that.

    In your example above ,Gabby and Chloe were both exceptional bench players, the others were still developing, some take a little longer than others, that was probably the case that particular year. You can't give them as much time if they don't contribute enough, only when the circumstances warrant giving them game playing time, they have to earn playing time. But you are still developing the players that need the extra time ,you owe them that chance if you recruit them. The coaching staff handles playing time masterfully in my opinion. Also it can only help in recruiting if you acquire the reputation of giving every player recruited a fair chance of getting playing time. That's my philosophy on this subject anyway.

    This. Absolutely this. It does matter, from a programs optics nationally, to what you can tell recruits. Tickets sold matters to the bank account, but butts in seats is the real attendance. The problem is there is almost no way you get that rule enforced. The small conferences wonít want it because it will kill their attendance, your G5 programs are able to stay above the average attendance mandate because of it so they wonít want it. Thatís too many schools who wonít vote for it.
