WSJ: Interesting Look At College Football Student Section Attendance

+

The decrease even at schools with entrenched football traditions and national championships stands in contrast to college football's overall popularity. Total turnout at home games of top-tier teams hit a record in 2013, while average attendance has slipped just 0.8% since 2009. The growing number of empty seats in student sections across the U.S. is a sign of soaring ticket prices, more lopsided games and fewer matchups against longtime rivals, and the proliferation of televised games that make it easier than ever for students to keep tailgating long after kickoff.

"We have a lot of youth at our skill positions and you would much rather have that than to flip it and have young inexperienced offensive linemen," Willis said. "You would rather have the older line than older skill-position players. "This offensive line knows what’s up and they know how to go out and win a game on Saturday. I know them and I know they will take care of me."

Boston College is our kinda-sorta biggest football rival and there's a Wikipedia page to prove it in case you're into things like that. Last year was a pretty fun deal to seal up bowl eligibility and anyone who's followed the Orange long enough will love to tell you how we ruined their plans to go to a BCS bowl game in their final Big East season in 2004. That led to Pitt losing to Utah. And us getting destroyed by Georgia Tech which led to the GERG era. So it goes. Oh, and they're plenty annoying in basketball to muster up some hate, too. And don't forget about the Orange Eagle Trophy this site and BC Interruption have going. It's pretty good to have this rivalry back, guys.

The adorable, one-side attempt at a Classic Rivalry that is the Boston College vs. UMass Amherst football game – waged mostly through bus ads probably bought by UMass – has turned downright sacrilegious. Someone put a UMass jersey on BC’s Doug Flutie statue. I know, I was shocked too: They even make UMass jerseys? – http://bit.ly/1AROHvo
