    How hard is it to drive across town and buy a ticket to go to the game?
    Do you realize NDSU gets paid 1.2 million over 3 years to air their games on NBC? Blacking out games for 1500 tickets is not a good deal. Besides, last weeks game wansnt even on NBC. TV exposure is everything.

    Someone mentioned that student attendance is down at other colleges as well.
    JMU offers their students a semester scholarship, & the winner is announced during the 4th quarter. Of course you have to be present to win!
    Idk the $$ amt. but my source says it is substantial.

    Winter weather. Short notice to buy tickets. It's quite amazing how we can draw so well on short notice. Ask SDSU

    No punches pulled there. But he has a very valid point. With them being a new program and winning at the level they are, and attendance is going down. No students as well. ouch.

    I was gonna mention the weather. I dont know first hand but heard from people i know that traveled to the game from central ND that the conditions were not all the great on saturday. It will be interesting to see how well the attendance is this week on what should be a better weekend for travel

    As a side note NDSU did have the highest attended game of the playoffs so far and that was by a wide margin (nearly 6k) https://herosports.com/fcs/football-...ound-2018-ajaj

KSU is in Georgia, take a wild guess who they watch every weekend... I'll give you a hint, they played against Alabama for the right to go to the CFP.

    I'm a big FBS guy, I watch Notre Dame every weekend. The people down here in the south make me look like a casual fan. My best friend down here went to Alabama-Huntsville. He called me borderline crying last weekend after Alabama beat Georgia. The FBS schools here elicit the pride NDSU/UND elicit from ND residents multiplied by about ten.

    A school like Kennesaw State is viewed by them the same way we look at schools like Mary or Minot State. At most, a few locals and maybe a few alums really care about it.

    Is it to the point where the students may lose another section in the future (as soon as next year)? One would have to assume that the powers-that-be are more than aware of the lack of student attendance and it irks them knowing how much of a boost in Team Maker fees are being left on the table.
