They draw better when they're good


than when they're not.

But even in the good years the attendance is nothing like it was in the 60s and 70s.

In fairness, I think some of the decline has to do with the scheduling of conference games.  In the 60s, every week was Friday and Saturday (except the Washington trip, which had an extra day between games), and the Friday games started at 8, so you could get there after work.  Then they went to Thursday and Saturday.  Then they started mixing in Sunday games.  Then they started messing with the starting times, adding in 6:00 weeknight starts, as if the entire fan base consisted of people without jobs.
