I haven't been able to see anything highlights or anything from the game yet bc I was in Atlanta this weekend. How was the crowd and what was the announced number? Thanks
40,000 and change I believe.
Officially, but not realistically.
were you there? I ask because it looked like a pretty big crowd on TV when they actually panned to the shady side (the camera was usually only showing the sunny side).
I wasn't but the range of people who were there seems to fall anywhere from 25-40K. I have seen some news reports that indicated 40K was quite generous (and I have seen a picture of the entire stadium)
I would have guessed about 40,000. Everyone was on the shade side. We were on that side as well, and were wondering why anyone would be sitting over there in the sun.
If you're talking about the picture on Warchant, I don't believe that was a true representation of what was there. I was there and I think there were more people there last year than this year. The shady side was still pretty full, which was not seen very well on tv. When I was there, I would have guessed around 35k with people coming and going so your guess is pretty accurate. It always thins out at halftime.
Yeah, the warchant picture was taken at halftime. There was a mass exodus at the end of the 2nd quarter and others filed out during halftime. The largest crowd inside the stadium was around the end of the 1st quarter, start of the 2nd quarter. If you take into account that time, plus the suites and skyboxes, varsity club, UCC, etc. plus those coming and going, I'm going to say 40,000 is about accurate. It was definitely at least 35,000.
35k > 35
Kenny Powers: "A true champion will do whatever it takes to rise above. Because surrender is death, and death is for pussies."
I was there and I would say about 30,000. Saying that there was 40k would mean that place was half full, and it wasn't.
"Some people think football is a matter of life and death, I assure you, it is much more serious than that."
It was more than a Miami fall game. I think UF fans turned out in masses because someone started a rumor that Muschamp would get axed at halftime.....
Miami's Spring game. Picture is from Busted Coverage
Either Miami fans dressed up as seats for their spring game or absolutely no one showed up for the event. The Alabama Crimson Tide consistently have 92,000 people show up to their spring game and the Miami Hurricanes have this turnout. Miami fans are pretty much the exact opposite of Bama fans but then again, what the hell is there to do in Alabama? I guess all the Miami fans are on South Beach drinking mojitos. HT @TomahawkNation. JUMP!

turnout wasn't amazing but it was better than some other teams on Saturday.
TBH, spring games are pretty damn boring unless you are a die hard
