    It will be full at kickoff.

    Second half may be a different story.

    I bet there's 35000 UGA fans there

    No - it's great. I like it. But do you think people really care right now? I wouldn't if I were going.

    People will get fired up and display this type of school spirit when we formally announce Colton Jumper recently being granted an unprecedented 7th year of eligibility. We have our middle linebacker position locked down for the foreseeable future, folks.

    People are pissed right now. Understandably so. That still doesn't mean fans won't show up.

    The BIG drop in attendance happens after a loss in this game.

    Have you seen the pictures of the UMASS game?

    They're definitely pissed. Look at my pics in the UMass thread at the attendance.

    Yeah but I don’t know if I’d compare a noon kick against UMass to Georgia

    I agree it’s not gonna be what it usually would be but still

    There will be plenty of folks selling tickets to UGA fans. Also this is about being psyched and wanting to checker Neyland vs showing up for the likely loss.

    I have.

    Turnout for Umass had a lot going against it considering the hangover from the Florida loss and an early kickoff.

    Georgia is the biggest home game draw left on the schedule with a 3:30 kickoff. People may not stay for the end but people will be there at kickoff.

    I thought we were talking about a fan base excited to checker Neyland - not whether people were going to show up.

    To me the checker was about big games and creating an atmosphere.

    This is a preparation for a funeral - or feels that way at least.

    I've never had a funeral cause me this much joy

    Nobody is talking attendance. We are talking about participation in the checkered board. The place will be full to start the game, no brainer.

    Guess I'm just not seeing this as being an issue. To me, the main problems would be as follows:

    A. Low Attendance
    B. High Georgia fan attendance/Low Tennessee fan attendance
    C. Early exiting from the game

    I highly doubt most fans are going to actively boycott checker Neyland just because of how the team has played or because of Butch Jones, especially if they already have a ticket. A good majority will be on board for doing this.

    Just my 2 cents.

    If you're sheep enough to attend, you're sheep enough to wear what they tell you.


    I bet enough people sell to UGA fans that it won't look great.

    Had an exchange with someone on the other site about Vol fans selling tickets to Dawg fans. Vol fans will be putting their tickets up on line to sell. It's not the fact the UGA fans will be buying all the tickets it's the fact that Vol fans are not interested and will not be buying.
