Default Attendance Saturday vs Texas A&M

You can certainly blame the kickoff times and the heat for some of this but the home games this season have been very poorly attended. Even UGA only had about 50-60% butts in seats in the upper deck endzone sections at kickoff and last week was underwhelming to say the least. And thatís before the heavens opened. No excuses this weekend. Weather looks PERFECT. Sunshine and highs in the mid 70ís. Weíre playing a team we havenít beaten yet in a game that could potentially turn our season around and springboard the program. If you have the ability to be in Williams-Brice on Saturday get your butt in your seat before kickoff. Letís show A&M what a real home field advantage is! Go Cocks

Agreed. Unless the skies open up again, this should be the best weather for a home game yet. And the fact that it's a big game and we have some momentum right now. Time to show out.

The lower decks usually aren't the problem. It's filling the nosebleeds.

The Fair is in town. People won't show because they don't have parking this week, and they aren't going to fight the extra traffic.

This is a horrendous excuse. Shuttles run constantly from parking areas on campus.

Glad our game cock club members pay hundred of dollars for a parking pass only to have to take a shuttle to the game.

For many fans large part of the game is tailgating, the fair and the extra traffic will discourage people from going and makes tailgating more challenging.

If I had tickets this year and was still in COLA I would still go, but I would bitch and moan the whole time about parking.

I'll be there like every week, but I gotta say no tents almost was a deal breaker for me. No chairs in the fairgrounds either... bummer.

And they printed passes for this game. Why. Limited parking for 5$ but no tents kills tailgating. I really dont wanna deal with it. My in-laws may go who knows. If I go I will probably get there when gates open and use my football tickets for free entry to fair

Too bad there aren't any other places to park.

Yeah, no tents, no chairs, and I am assuming no grills. Sorta defeats the purpose of tailgating.

I'm just saying it sucks to pay $300+ for a season parking pass then have to come out of pocket again if you want to tailgate for this game.

A few years ago it was the UMass game, which was at noon and it was fine. I showed up with my dad about 45 min. before, paid $5 to park and walked in. This is one of the bigger games of the year, and an afternoon kick. People will want to tailgate.

Horrible excuse. I parked in the fairgrounds for years and never had trouble finding another place during the fair. You know well in advance when the fair is and what games it will affect. Huge conference game with great weather fans need to show up.

I'm not sure if it's even possible, but I wish the school and the fair could work it out to where you don't have a home game and the fair at the same time.

It's a unique atmosphere especially if you win, but the traffic and logistics suck.

Growing up my parents had season tickets and we had passes for the fairgrounds. From what I remember, parking somewhere else during the fair was annoying, but doable.

From recent memory, we usually have a bye week for one of the fair weeks, if the school was more consistent about scheduling an away game for the other week it would work fine. That being said, I am sure there is a lot more that goes into the process.

We will be there. We are a GCC member, and purchase season parking offsite of the reason of loosing a spot for the fair...

With that being said, there are plenty of places on bluff road to pay to park ranging for $5 to $60. Get there early, and you will not have a issue getting a spot.

There is nothing worse than a bunch of fair weather fans...

GO COCKS!

I think last year we had an away game and a bye week.

It's not ideal, but there's still options in other spots near the stadium.
