Wonder why UNI is battling smaller attendance, the have a lot of recent success and a very good coach?

If you look at our attendance issues, when did we start the decline? Just curious.

Here are the attendance from Roberts Stadium. 1993 was the peak year.

1993-94 13-4 .765 173,904 10,230
1994-95 12-2 .857 146,843 10,489
1995-96 9-5 .643 146,400 10,457
1996-97 12-4 .750 133,561 8,348
1997-98 10-5 .667 122,655 8,177
1998-99 10-3 .769 111,625 8,587
1999-00 12-3 .800 125,061 8,337
2000-01 10-4 .714 100,070 7,148
2001-02 6-8 .429 81,503 5,822
2002-03 9-5 .643 93,398 6,671
2003-04 4-8 .333 79,421 6,618
2004-05 10-5 .667 94,777 6,318
2005-06 7-7 .500 84,351 6,025
2006-07 10-5 .667 82,407 5,494
2007-08 7-8 .467 82,292 5,486
2008-09 15-4 .789 111,400 5,863
2009-10 7-9 .438 77,314 4,832
2010-11 12-3 .800 77,269 5,151

By 1995, the Internet was fully commercialized in the U.S. when the NSFNet was decommissioned, removing the last restrictions on use of the Internet to carry commercial traffic.


I believe 1994-95 was first year of MVC, I could be off a year or two but think I am right. 1987-1993 was the best stretch for UE in D1 basketball. Hands down. We switched over to MVC and attendance started a decline.
In 1999, UE won the conference and gained an at large bid and attendance did not take an uptick even with a winning team on the floor. I do not believe winning teams will bring the fans back. If UE could get to 6k or so that would be great. But the likes of 10k are long gone and will never come back.
Remember those times for what they were, they were special. Don't try to compare and figure ways to get back there, it isn't going to happen. About 6k is a good target that can be reached. With a new coach, new system, new enthusiasm UE can reach that number.
Marty, mediocrity its what he does.

ESPN rated college basketballs conferences using their rating system and the Valley came in 10th. I'll post the link for those interested seeing where other conferences fall.
