Those tickets probably all scanned as duplicates though, thus explaining the high revenue / low reported attendance dichotomy.

Somebody in USM's IT department fucked up bad. It's not hard for me to imagine how. Multiple data sources that are almost in synch but not quite... poor or absent locking mechanisms preventing uniqueness from being ensured. It's pretty elementary shit but misguided amateurs get it wrong pretty frequently.

Re: Southern thread

Just was informed about the ticket counting as it relates to students. Under McGillis, they were counting the entire student section capacity (4K) + how many students came in. So if you had 2k students enter the stadium, the student total would have been 6k. There's your difference. Last night's crowd would have been announced at 28k under previous administrations.

That's ridiculous, and Gilbert is right to not do it that way.

That said, I have no confidence in the Athletic Department's ability to count attendance, or even tickets sold. The problems that several of us have witnessed with tickets showing up as duplicates (and presumably not getting counted) hint at a pretty big problem.

Until they truly get to the bottom of this, Gilbert needs to resort to some sort of estimation to get a more reasonable figure. For example, he could release a "tickets purchased" figure based on revenue and overall average ticket price. Right now, I think the department is just parroting a number obtained from a very flawed computer system. Lazy, lazy, lazy.

Re: Southern thread

For any of you that witnessed that shit, please call his office and/or send him an email describing it.  I doubt these issues are being reported to him correctly and if they are, you will put him on notice that some small time shit is happening and it is not going unnoticed by the masses!

It has been reported as we have all seen that we were very profitable last week with that shitty ass turnout.  Does that mean they counted large sums of money and credit card sales receipts and it was huge or does it mean that the reported numbers were very nice???  I own a business and the bottom line is how much revenue did we generate in cold hard cash. In short, is the bank account larger than the bills due. I smell a rat on last week and have little confidence after hearing these stories.

1. I think the new AD could be clued in about the "small time shit" when he sees our C-USA schedule, or he may even have noticed that we hosted Southern University this past weekend. 

2. Masses?
