    Thumbs up to the athletic department for the condition of the stadium. For the most part everything was in good shape, the stadium was clean, including the rest rooms. Also there were plenty of workers at the concession stands resulting in short lines. There was plenty of security and event staff on site. Considering that many of the people were at the stadium and on campus for the first time I think that, on the whole, a good impression was made by the University.

    The upper deck was about 40% full the lower deck was about 30% . My guess about 8000. The rain must have scared some off. There was lightning in the distance almost all evening. Although, the rain earlier in the day did cool things off and it was OK in the stands as there was a good breeze almost the entire evening.
