Where Are All the Fans?
This is my fourth year in the Band of Blue, and I have never seen a sold out game at Floyd Stadium. There are even some games when we wonder where the student section is. MTSU started out great this season and may have hit a road bump but revived themselves with a 3-overtime win over a then 8-1 Marshall team. I wonder why people were not there to watch MTSU (who was favored to win) beat an 8-1 team. Attendance for the opening home game this year was around 16,000 people. The stadium holds around 30,000.

- Were there other college games on TV at the same time? Yes.
- Was the University of Tennessee playing on TV at the same time? Yes.
- Is there free stuff given out at games? Yes.
What's It Going to Cost Me?
Is the Team Even Good?
In my opinion the marketing department has outdone themselves this year trying to get people to the games. It is now up to the MTSU student body, faculty and the Murfreesboro to come out and support their Blue Raiders at home games.
