I hope Carlson can continue to put kickoffs in the end zone. I've yet to be convinced that we can cover them .

I sure hope the o-line does a decent job at least with Putnam and Webb there.

It won’t hurt with him if they don’t. Can sell how much we need him even more. Not that I want that to be a selling point.

They still saw an incredible atmosphere and game.

Think they saw it wasn’t even a sellout?

... official attendance was 86,787, pretty close. Ya know Jared I really like you but this negative stuff that’s came out tonight is a bit weird man.

Just asking a question. It’s more the fault of the admin and ticket people prices than people staying home expecting AU to lose. But you know they will hear about AU not selling out a top 25 game like that.

I did think it was in interesting that the top corners weren't filled, at least from my view on TV (I read an article recently on how much lower tax sales have been at games in college football. Basically it stated that ADs are using questionable tactics to pad attendance figures-interesting read).

That said I'm curious to know what things looked like from a recruit's perspective. How full did the stadium appear in person? Did we create the environment we usually do for opposing teams?

I’m sure it was enough to feel the excitement of being in Jordan Hare. Just hate that tickets are so expensive AU can’t even sellout a top 15 game.

@ClaytonAU can probably answer. 

The heat also had some to do with the lack of sellout, I imagine. I, for one, was under doctor’s orders not to go.

I encourage you to go back and look for pics from last years game in Baton Rouge. It was about 70% full. It is a trend increasing everywhere, especially when heat index is over 100.

Wow, really? That’s crazy. I don’t recall if LSU was even ranked at the time or not. I agree it’s a trend, but it would be nice if AU got ahead of others on being more aggressive with ticket prices, but I guess that not really what’s pulls in money. Maybe one day there will be more skyboxs than stands.

It was loud. It was 103 degrees. But recruits saw an incredible game with fan interaction and a close hard fought game that either team could’ve won until the last two seconds. Just because we lost doesn’t mean we’re out of anything with these guys.

Those corners were empty mostly because those are designated away team tickets. LSU supposedly returned a bunch. And yeah, $125.00 per ticket is gonna price a lot of people out of going to games. Ridiculous. But yes, great atmosphere and loud from what I could tell from the ramp.

Let’s be honest here, though. That OL performance should put to rest any delusions that Webb might come to AU, especially when you see that well coached offensive juggernaut across state.

Isn't it about time we added another recruit or two? December will be upon us before we know it,

With 16 already committed we've only got 9 more slots available and that's if we're not holding a slot or two back for grad transfers. I think we can afford to be picky considering the quality that's already committed. In fact, we'll have to be picky if we're going to keep up with the Jones's, which seems to be a big thing with some fans.

This. It was friggin miserable in the stadium until the sun went below the upper deck. I stood up to yell at one point in the first quarter and felt my whole word rock and shift. Had to sit down and slowly down an entire life water before I felt good enough to muster a little yelling. Prices for decent seats have become insane and season tickets are no longer worth it. We renewed every year from 2010 on and the moment they put my seats in the upper deck two years ago I said "f*** you too" and haven't gotten them again. Definitely not worth the cost on the years where we don't play both Alabama and Georgia at home.

This years home games and my opinion as someone who has to drive 4 hours to see a game and 4 hours back:

Alabama State  - these tickets should frankly be first come first serve like an A-day game.

LSU - definitely worth a trip  but man was it a rough ride home after the heat, stress, and let down. 10/10 would go

Arkansas - I'll be there but it's much more of a "home shopping" trip as me and the wife continue to work on moving up there. Fun game to go to if you're looking for what should be a  stress free game with a lot of scoring. 6/10 only going for an "Auburn tour" to continue to sell the city to the Mrs.

Southern Miss - snooze.

Tennessee - same as Arkansas. 6/10 not making the trip

Texas A&M - might be worth the trip but it could end very similar to LSU. Disappointing and season shattering. 8/10

Liberty - snooze

 

Quit playing interesting games at "neutral sites" and do a damn home-home series so we can get interesting opponents like Washington AT Auburn.

Home schedule should always have either:

Alabama, LSU, Ole Miss, SEC East Team

or

Georgia, Mississippi State, Arkansas, Texas A&M

Guarantees there are always 4 solid home games. Add the two cupcake home games in and you always have a minimum of 6 home games. Then add home&home series with a decent out of conference opponent so every other year you get 7 home games.
