With student ticket pre-registration underway we have the numbers on just how fired up the Students are to jam into Beaver Stadium and go fucking crazy for 8 games! The answer: slightly less than last year! Wait, WHAT?
The Collegian is reporting that Student Ticket Pre-Reg is DOWN over last year.
Myford could not provide exact numbers but said "just under 40,000" students registered this year, while "more than 40,000" students registered last year. There are only 22,000 tickets available for students every year.
I am completely disappointed. How is there less interest in seeing the games after the team won the Big Ten last year (for the second time in 4 years)? I suppose I will have to console myself with the fact that there are still nearly twice as many registrations as there are seats available. After all, it could be a lot worse. We could be where Pitt is at as far as attendance.
Time to man up, Students! Get fired up!

GO STATE! GET FIRED UP FOR THE NEW YEAR!
