I still expect a good crowd at this weekend’s Aggie vs. UTEP game.
There has been talk of the crowd being down this year — UTEP is down so less fans are traveling from El Paso; single-game ticket prices are too high and the economy is obviously down; the game’s on television and the Internet which will keep fans away; promotions have been ineffective; the advent of Facebook and Twitter don’t get fans out to the stadium....These are all possible reasons I have heard.
But here’s what I think: the game will draw well when it’s all said and done. Las Cruces and El Paso are known for it’s walk-up crowds and I still expect 25,000 to 30,000 strong.
I’m still not ruling out a sellout yet.
