FAU vs South Carolina Game Likley To Have Empty Seats

"Shortly before Saturday’s 7 p.m. kickoff, Tim Connor plans to be seated for the start of South Carolina’s home opener against Florida Atlantic.

But for the first time in more than a dozen years, Connor’s seat will be at a booth at a local chicken wings restaurant or on his living-room couch while someone else uses his former seats in Section 101 at Williams-Brice Stadium.

Connor said the additional $1,300 in seat fees he would have been required to pay this year prompted him to give up his five tickets in the lower west stands.

When USC rolled out its YES (Yearly Equitable Seating) plan last year, athletic director Eric Hyman expected to see a 5 percent attrition rate among season-ticket holders. But the recession caused a bigger dropoff than officials anticipated.

Hyman said 11 percent of the school’s 55,000 season tickets were not renewed, the first time in a decade USC did not sell out its season-ticket base."

Maybe that and their 7-6 2008 record with the bowl loss and 3 straight losses at the end of the season.

GO OWLS!
