So we got a good 1800-2K spotted for attendence, depending on other activities/sports.
    Huh??? weird comment

    That's (FUBeAR comment) the enrollment we have basically ALWAYS had. We have always had about 2300-2400 undergrad. Never the 3500 you mention.

    ANd BEAR has a great point - regardless me as a Furman fan...

    If we have less than 2500 students and get 9000+ to come to game... and some schools have 10,000 or so just in students(!!) and get the same number to attend a game as Furman with 7K less students?? That says a lot. After 10 years of graduates (so age 22-32, young) - A school of 10,000 has 25 thousand recent alumni!! Furman after a decade has just over 6000 new alumni. 25,000 FAR GREATER THAN SIX THOUSAND. Money, boosters, "Hey I went to ETSU son, why don't you go there, etc. etc. etc
    * NO WAY should we compete in terms of attendance with bigger state schools like UTC and ETSU for attendance.
