I know UGA last year was something like 85,200, if I recall correctly. Serious question; How do you get in excess of 100% capacity? DO they sell tickets for something other than each seat?

There it is, out of the entire Gamecock Nation we only have 84,174 "true fans". Jk, that argument was just annoying me yesterday in another thread. Thanks for the stat!

They also sell "standing room only" tickets.

No such thing as a ramp ticket people choose to stand there rather than use their seat

I wish some people from my row would make this choice. We have end seats and I was one cheeking it for most of the Clemson game.

We were the second highest team in the league in terms of stadium capacity.

I know we're not going to expand any time soon, but we could absorb 10,000 more seats easily at this point.

Going to need to show more than one year of this before we can "absorb 10,000".

I am fully aware of this, just wanted to have us do something that would be different from everyone else, but I guess we should leave well enough alone...SMH

Why is your head shaking? Maybe you should have that checked out if its bad enough that you feel you need to share it with us.

Bowl the bottom in and create a tunnel for the teams to come out of and your looking at about 85k plus.

anyone know last year's attendance numbers?

Re: 2013 Attendance at Willy-B
 
there are no SRO tickets. When they count attendance they count every one who is in the stadium. Coaches, players, sideline passes, refs and press. thats how they get those #s.

They absolutely DO NOT sell "standing room only" tickets. Everyone that has a ticket, has a seat.

The overages come from press, photographers, radio, camera crews, sideline passes, players, caterers for box seats, etc. Everyone in the stadium that doesn't require a ticket.

There will never be "standing room only" or more commonly called "general admission" tickets to Williams-Brice Stadium for Gamecock football games.
