…in attendance that is. For the third straight year Penn State has finished 2nd in average attendance.
Penn State drew an average of more than 108,200 fans for its seven home football games in 2008. According to recently released figures from the NCAA, that was recond among major college football programs behind only Michigan's average of about 108,500.
The 2008 season average was 650 fans less per game than the 2007 season. If you remember, Penn State is the largest stadium in North America, BIGGER than Michigan's Big House, so how in the Hell could a team with a smaller stadium, who went 3-9 average more fans per game than a team that won the Big Ten?
Wait for it….

It's no mystery, we don't need a team from CSI to painstakingly sift through the remains or Jack Bower's terrorist interrogation methods to find an answer...
I assure you Mr Curley, schedule a team like Coastal Carolina again and your attendance won’t be the only thing that suffers.
...when you schedule absolute SHIT TEAMS for OOC home games people aren't going to come and when you schedule the (oh by the way undefeated) Utah's of the world, well you are going to fill the seats even when your team is going through the worst record in its proud history. This ain't rocket science it's business and the business of scheduling horrible teams will only last as long as the Big Ten Championships do. Better keep winning Tim Curley or things are going to go south really, really fast.
