After running through a compelling home schedule to date full of cupcakes, Junior is concerned that the fans aren’t staying in the stadium for a full sixty minutes.
Attendance hasn’t exactly been great at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium through the first three home games of the season. With a capacity of 64,038, the Rebels have yet to exceed 61,000 in a game. According to the school, the attendance figures have been:
- Week 1 vs. Troy: 60,533
- Week 2 vs. Central Arkansas: 58,373
- Week 4 vs. Tulsa: 60,641
Tickets are expensive. Concessions are expensive. Combine that with an overload of cupcakes — gotta make sure that bowl eligibility issue is covered! — and what do you expect?
Unless you’re a football coach. Then, the game isn’t entertainment for the fans. It’s an obligation.
Eh, Kentucky comes calling this week. Maybe the fans will stay.
