Will FAU ever fill the 30,000 seat stadium?

Most of these schools have been playing longer than FAU has and have been around even longer as educational institutions.

Why FAU will seem to be different?
weather, location, more students?
You be the judge!

Not to be negative, but even for the opener, I am seeing a hard time filling the new digs with 30k actual bodies.

Will it be done on paper, yes.  In physicality, no.

Now, when we can book FSU, UM, or UF in there, yes - sold out.

Im not expecting a sellout either on opening day this year. It will be full but I doubt a sellout. Having no buzz from last year and opening with a Sun Belt opponent will be the determining factors.

As Rick said one day well get FSU, UM (UF will NEVER come IMHO, the Gators do not have to travel for any reason to a non-aq) or a Michigan, Nebraska type team and then those fan bases will make it a sell out.

Dont worry about it, enjoy the diggs this year and lets see what happens. I dont care if we go 1-11 this year, I'll still be happy because FAU finally got a decent home. (The one win is of course the guranteed beating we give FIU every year)  ;D

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

I dont even think we need one of those 3.  I think UCF or USF would sell it out as well.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

Agreed.  The USF game at Lockhart had huge attendance.
