    Interesting numbers...I'll refer to this thread every time I want to see discussion on MIAA attendance. MIAA as a whole has pretty solid attendance numbers, it seems, with perhaps only the LSC a better attendance draw, as a whole conference. But the over all week 1 attendance winner looks like it is Grand Valley with over 14,000.

      I was saddened by the size of the crowd last Thursday in the 'Burg. Beautiful night for a game. Hays brought a decent crowd but the plenty of seats all the way around. Maybe this will change if the Mules put together a couple more wins, especially on the road.

        I drove past a couple thousand students dressed in red at several keg parties a couple blocks from Walton Stadium. I thought they would eventually make their way to the game, but they stayed at the beer parties. Certainly not something any of us would have done.....lol. In previous years the university would host a street festival before the opening Thursday night game to get the students out, especially the incoming freshmen. I arrived a little late, so I'm not sure if they had the street festival prior to the game or not. In years gone bye, those students would attend the festival and the game and UCM would have a big crowd. Ahhh, the allure of free beer and girls in tight shorts...

          I rarely attended a game in college. I had a friend who lived across the street. A bunch of us would drag the furniture and the keg out on the lawn and listen to the game.

              UCM had 7,900 for the Thursday home opener against Ft. Hays. The students hanging out at the keg parties definitely hurt the attendance. We had 10,400 when the Mules opened at home on a Thursday (2017) against Pitt State. Part of that was Pitt bringing a good number of fans, but also I don't recall there being any huge student keg parties close by that would have affected the student attendance.

                I rarely attended a game in college either. Now I rarely miss attending a home game. Attended a lot of keg parties though.

                  The "Get The Red Out" Street Fair did occur last Thursday like it has for a number of years on the opening Thursday night game. Even with that, the crowd was not as good as many would have liked.
