Attendance?
What do y'all think of this?

How accurate are your actual attendances?

Liberty 2001 (21,056 Reported Attendance - 10,288 Actual Difference of 48.86%)
was quite a difference. Why go back so far? Or were these each schools
largest differences on schools they reported on.

RE: Attendance?
Strangely enough, USA has under reported attendance for many a game. I'm pretty sure this past season we reported only scanned tickets due to NCAA's watchful eye on our attendance (due to them not recognizing Ladd Stadium's counting method, although accurate). To make matters worse, the ticket scanners broke during our first game last season, and we weren't able to count students. The count was off by several thousand for that game. I wouldn't expect this to always be the case with USA, but it is what it is.

Have noticed you hear about ticket scanners breaking from many posters at a lot of schools. Where do they get these machines? Cracker jack boxes?

I don't recall hearing other schools talking about having broken scanners. I know it was brought up about USA a few times (by both USA and other posters). But to answer your question, I have no clue where the scanners came from. After the first game last year the attendance seemed to be accurate. But again, we were only reporting scanned tickets. Hopefully this is a non-issue going forward.

Wasn't really asking Skully, was mainly rhetorical. Have noticed at least a couple of dozen posters, over the years, saying their scanners broke down on game day, including at App State a couple of times. They must not be built too well or there is something people do to cause them to mess up.
