Marquette #14 in attendance for 06-07 season

Marquette averaged 15,345 fans per game last season (20 home dates, 306,893 total). MU ranked third in the Big East in average attendance per game. Syracuse was #2 in the nation at 21,516 per game and Louisville clocked in at #5 overall with 18,488 per game.

Nice work by MU fans, very nice indeed.

The full report can be found here (.pdf).

BTW, word around here is that Murffieus will contest these numbers in a thread on a message board near you.

I think it would be interesting to see this data normalized for student body numbers to give us an idea of the percentage of student body that attends the home game. MU and Creighton would jump even higher and Wisconsins, Tennessees, and Ohio States would fall quite a bit.

I'm not Murff, but I'll contest them. I'd say there were MAYBE two games that we cracked the 15K barrier. These numbers are an absolute fabrication.
