4 weeks ago The U. of Arizona played UCLA during “Family Weekend”. More than 48,000 attended and The Wildcats beat The Bruins.
Last Saturday was Homecoming. The “Announced” crowd was 36,000. Lowest Homecoming attendance since 1975. Lowest attendance for any Home Game since 1997.
It all died in 4 weeks as Arizona has lost 4 straight.
Sumlin on the sidelines looked dazed and confused. He wears white pants and a long red Luau shirt.He looks like a Lounge singer. His defensive players looked like they had quit as they gave up 56 points.
At halftime the crowd looked ready to head home. And they did.
Arkansas, Cal, Stanford, UCLA and many others are also suffering from very low attendance.
While harping at our Cougar coaches and this year’s program be reminded that the phenomena of low attendance happens everywhere. Losing does that. People have lots of other things to do.
Hopefully our Fans will support the team by attending The Memphis and Navy games.
This year is 1975. And next year is 1976.
