[QUOTE=metro;297025]This is sort of a football-hoops discussion, hence why its not in football forum. But this is a great link:
it is the 2007 NCAA basketball attendance. We were #91 (not bad considering the stiffs we had) at 6026.
[B] Looking though at this list, I am tired of Charlotte sports radio and naysayers alway using this line[/B] [B]“the 49ers can’t even fill up Halton Arena, why would football work?”
[/B]I guess there are alot of D1 football programs that need to shut down- these average less than Charlotte/Halton in hoops:
App 2530 (1AA football)
Wyoming 6069 (ok better than us by 43)
Ole Miss 5406
Miami Fla 3465!!!
Miami Oh 3250
Oregon St 5165
La Tech 2288
Air Force 5064
[B] oh… and a stat for you newbies to the program: in 1992 we averaged 7725! Good for 62nd in the NCAA[/B]
I tried to do this last year, comparing the basketball attendance to the football attendance at App, ECU, and Clemson, but I can’t find my numbers. I also included the capacity of the stadium/arena.
Here are some of the teams you listed as far as football numbers.
ECU 4533 63. East Caro. 37,168
App 2530 3. Appalachian St. 20,546
UAB 4752 83. UAB 23,139
Miami Fla 3465 51. Miami (Fla.) 41,908
Marshall 3544 81. Marshall 26,031
USM 3481 78. Southern Miss. 28,994
And a few others with the average #'s:
NCAA DIVISION I FBS TOTALS Average 46,249
South Carolina 75,630
North Carolina St. 56,540
North Carolina 48,857
Miami (Fla.) 41,908
East Caro. 37,168
South Fla. 30,222
Southern Miss. 28,994
NCAA DIVISION I FCS TOTALS Average 8,916
Appalachian St. 20,546
N.C. A&T 11,596

Good find metro!! I 'll have to bookmark this and make a spreadsheet some day comparing the 2 sports.
