    Matt was on the radio and he said sales were good. I no we will not sell as many as previous years, but I think we will do well. With the help of Southern Miss I think we should have another top 5 attendance.

    Which is hugely disappointing considering the opponent. How could a true fan not be pumped up?

    I think we hit 38k plus or minus 2k. I'd love to think we would get 50k but we had a crappy year. Played well enough to win the last 5 games of the season and closed out well. But we blew 2-3 games.

    When over $10,000 people in this area have lost their jobs and many their homes, it is not unexpected. I think too many of us forget that at times, but many in our community are going through tough times.

    I am, that's why I'm going the cheap route of buying a ticket not through UL. Tough times with no job, but I'm not missing it.

    I would think the same thing. I think anything above the 35K for the game will be a win for the New Orleans Bowl. Looking at Southern Miss's appearances I am willing to throw their first two numbers. The first one was the first year of the bowl and they might not have know what to expect. The second one was in 2005 and the game was played outdoors in Lafayette. I am think this game will be closer to the 12/20/2009 Middle Tenn vs Southern Miss 30,223 or the 12/21/2008 Southern Miss vs Troy 30,197.

    UL Football Re: Ticket Sales?

    locking up the invite on the last game has to hurt a little. I'm looking for a great Cajun backing. There will be visibly more red in that dome than black and yellow.

    Don't know yet, but aren't tickets through the bowl or ticket master way cheaper than then the schools reserved seats. I know location won't be great but oh well

    Don't know, but probably not.

    Scalpers might have some for less in better seats.

    Always seems that way. In the past I would buy for my group and everytime we'd walk to the dome someone would be hawking better seats. Granted they wouldn't be in a group and sometime they'd be in the visitor sides but since everyone in my group is now out of state or can't go (for whatever reason), I'm just gonna roll the dice on this one.

    I really do not think the LA fan base will be as large as it has in the past.

    Louisiana will hold our own in ticket sales, but remember WE are in a Oil Downturn and a recent 1000 year flood that has priorities elsewhere. Those that can will buy tickets Tuesday can we watch it on TV ! My dad and mom will not go he just had quadruple bypass surgery doing well but not up to the trip .geauxCajuns!!!!

    I'll have to disagree about holding our own. It will be the lowest attended bowl game by us by a long way. I'm thinking we'll get outdrawn by USM 2-1. We just don't have enough true fans to overcome our own obstacles.

    I'll be there for the doubleheader. I'd planned on going to NO that weekend to watch basketball. Glad the football team could join us.

    We ordered 8 tickets earlier this week. Might be a big walk up crowd next Sat. Despite the break even records USM is an attractive opponent. Like others have stated, we shouldn't underestimate the tightness in our regional economy. Could be hundreds thinking "I'll try getting a $20 near the stadium instead of $42 through UL" saving $80-100 to help pay for a room. Who knows. Think we see 40,000 in the Dome

    Their average home attendance this year was 28k. They're not bringing an entire home crowd. And we'll be lucky to bring 10k. Seen ticket sales numbers?

    We have always brought more to NO than we averaged in attendance. Why wouldn't they?
