    I like that idea, giving free tickets after kickoff. Why not, the tickets won't be sold and might as well have bodies in the stands who might buy concessions?

    Maybe that is why the smaller DUKE school continues to hold on to Cameron....Attendance not determined by a bunch of old prima-donna's......

    I really wish they would offer free tickets a few minutes after the game starts. I know so many grads who can't afford to attend the game that would go (as well as other fans who would come).

    However, like most colleges, UNC wants the money. It infuriates me to see empty seats at basketball games too - the security guards will NOT let students/fans in the nosebleeds move down into empty Rams Club seats, even though they remain empty after halftime!

    For me, it's UNC's fall break and many students choose to go home to visit family or take a trip somewhere (as I have). Not the best excuse, but I needed a break from school. I'm pleased to see many students attending though and I am so glad they did.

    Watching the Heels from afar, though! I wish we had more events like Zero Dark Thursday. Makes it fun and inclusive in my opinion.

    I enjoyed reading the posts until I read about Duke filling up Wallace Wade stadium. Excuse me, but Duke is a heck of a lot smaller and does not have a local fan base. There is no excuse in the world to see aluminum at UNC.

  • huxter72 Oct 17, 2013

    For the most part the posts I've read are true on why attendance is bad. The fact that UNC is sorry and the noon and 12:30 games ARE a problem, especially the early September games, MTSU, which I attended 90+ degrees combined with 90+ humidity, combined with the aforementioned parking issues, makes a wasteful Saturday to say the least. It's too expensive and time consuming and to aggravating for such a terrible display of football, if one can call it that.

    I will be there, but I will not be wearing black. Anywhere. Those Nike-imposed uniforms are hideous. And don't tell me that the uniforms help recruiting. That is just another marketing racket. Sure, I can't just hear the recruit on signing day. "I made my decision because I get to wear these uniforms that aren't even in the school colors."

    I have an excuse. I can't afford the prices of tickets, I have to work Friday, and the cost of concessions are ridiculous. I can watch it on HD TV, flip over to baseball playoffs at times, and see the game better. And regardless of the arguments to the contrary, that does not make me a bad fan.

    What I find strange, is there are some people who want UNC to remain in the ACC and compete with schools that are taking those questionable athletes yet they don't think UNC should take those athletes. If you think UNC should only recruit student athletes then you have to realize that they can't compete in a league like the ACC. Get use to staying at the bottom of the league in football, empty stadiums, and constant ridicule by ABC fans. With the 50 million it would take for UNC to now leave the ACC, I doubt if they will leave.

    Kind of reminds of the State College fans who defend Valvano in a positive light when we all know he was corupt during his entire stay at NCSU. When you start a petition to give up the 83 championship then maybe others will take you serious. Until then.........it was a football issue according to the NCAA! Thanks!

  • findoutthefacts Oct 17, 2013

    "As an alumnus of the University many of us still have a distaste for the dishonor the football program brought upon our university. To create an useless academic program to keep players eligible , (African American studies), is reprehensible and indicative of what I would expect from State, ECU or a SEC school."moveythemez

    And that is exactly why UNC is hated by everyone outside your institution. You all spend so much time trying to convince yourself that you are so much better than everyone else...but reality doesnt back it up. Do you not see your hypocrisy?? You expect State, ECU and SEC schools to do illegal things to make yourself feel better but in reality, unc IS the only one of that bunch that ACTUALLY did it.

    So by expecting those other schools and conferences to do such a horrible thing and using that as a point to look down on them, UNC (who actually did cheat) should be even lower than those schools in your view.

  • Rip Rock Oct 17, 2013

    they don't show up when it's sunny. Did you see the crowd at the ECU game? The "blue zone" was about 40% full and the aluminum was in full view AT THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME.

  • Riddickfield Oct 17, 2013

    View quoted thread


    Yes, because other school's fans never go to a game where there might be a chance of some drizzle. If Tennessee fans had this attitude they would never show up for games, but they do to the tune of 100,000 people. Rain was in the forecast for Raleigh last Saturday and 50,000 people showed up for that game. No one made excuses, they brought rain gear.

    These are some pretty lame excuses. Way to support your team.

  • Honesty first Oct 17, 2013

    Lets get it right. The football program did not destroy the image and reputation of UNC. The ACADEMIC side did that. The section on African American studies was not created by the football side. The tutor program was run by the ACADEMIC side. A few individuals were greedy and broke rules and were punished for their actions. Many more were punished that did nothing wrong as well. Just because other places have crip majors and courses designed to keep players eligible does not excuse UNC. I wish every school would be reviewed and inspected as UNC was. Clean up the entire mess nationally. Why is it that there is NO random drug testing in any of the schools from Oregon. The NCAA is the problem and the schools that foster these problems will never be held accountable.

    Exaggeration, maybe. Huge? Not at all. I've sat in a parking deck for what seemed like easily an hour just trying to get out. Normally, I'm so jubilant over the State win over the Holes that it's not a big deal. But last year kinda stunk.
