This is a stupid statistic since you can have only as many fans as your stadium holds – a better statistic would be based on % of seats filled – but even that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense

And for Hollis’ latest publicity stunt. He’s in intense negotiations with the MI Dept. Of Corrections to bus 25,000 inmates to Aggie Stadium for Homecoming 2014. He promised the Downtown AC that he would make the B1G average once in 2014.
