Are the minimum attendance numbers for WMS Tied to actual butts on the seats or tickets sold?
Wow, Nite game in LR. Lot of memories.
This will be the first Saturday night SEC game at War Memorial since 1999.
Dang that’s crazy - I know some ended in darkness ( LSU 2010 comes to mind), but did not realize it’s been that long since an SEC game kicked off at night.
We’ll be 1-5 and everyone is frustrated, but it would be nice if fans would rally around these kids and create a fantastic throwback atmosphere.
Should be a great atmosphere. I like it.
There have been eight night SEC games at War Memorial. The last night SEC game was against South Carolina in 2003, but that was on a Thursday. With one exception, all of the others were clustered between 1995-99.
I was at that South Carolina game and it was a raucous crowd, Thursday night had the hog fans feeling feisty, plus we played good defense and had a qb named Matt Jones. Man time sure does fly, 15 years ago.
