How many USU fans will be at the tournament?

Post by GUS » March 7th, 2011, 10:26 am

I have talked to quite a few season ticket holders who are going to the WAC tournament this year. I wonder how many USU fans counting the students will actually be in the Oleans arena. I am guessing between 3500 and 4500. I think we will have more than we did at Reno and I thought USU brought about 2500 fans there. Anyone with a better number?

It's also during USU spring break so I expect to see more students than usual. Las Vegas is a bigger draw than Reno, lots of season ticket holders going, many alumni already in Vegas/St. George. I would put the over/under around 5,000 but wouldn't be surprised to see 6,000...especially for a Saturday final.

A colleague of mine who works in the San Jose AD/ticket office told me that he hasn't seen this much money coming in to the Bay area from Utah since the 2008 election. Possibly half of their allotment has been purchased by Aggie fans. I think we'll have more fans in Las Vegas than you might think.

I'm sure we bought up 100% of the La Tech allotment and probably 75% of Hawaii's tickets also. We'll probably have at least as much of a presence in Vegas as yBu or SDSU.

I wonder if $4 per gallon petrol will keep people away. I've already had to adjust my budget twice since DECEMBER (LOL @ September... long day).

WOW! That would be nice. I am thinking around 2500-3000 at most. Enough to rock the place.
