In the end this is what we get. Journalism based on creating controversy.

Well said. This is why I can't stand ESPN anymore. ESPN owned the pre-internet world. Now it's just sad to watch.

Does the destiny of the entire UofA rest in the hands of Terry Bowden?

I would really appreciate it if someone could find Akron's actual attendance numbers. I remember having an argument with a few people on here last year about soccer outdrawing the football team in attendance. There were football games that had less than 1,000 people in 2011 so I have a feeling I was right.

@bobbyake, one thing we all agreed on in that other thread is that there has been a huge gap between announced paid attendance and unannounced actual attendance at Zips football games. Actual numbers of butts in seats probably exist somewhere within the administrative offices at UA, as I believe they scan a ticket or student ID card for every person who actually enters the stadium, and that scanned data probably goes into a central computer file. However, it's likely that those actual attendance numbers are kept secret by UA to avoid the embarrassment of public disclosure.
