Revise Nevada Wolf Pack Attendance Reporting Policy

The current Nevada Wolf Pack attendance reporting policy for Football and Basketball consists of only counting 'butts in the seats' on game day as the official attendance number. However, many other schools are reporting the 'number of tickets sold' as the official attendance number. For example, in Football, we could have 26,000 tickets sold for a game, yet the 'butts in the seats' counting policy will only result in an official game attendance of 18,500. That's a huge difference in a very competitive environment. As long as the NCAA doesn't have a specific attendance counting policy, many competing schools will opt for the higher number which is always the 'tickets sold' option. For Nevada to choose the much lower 'butts in the seats' number, it badly hurts and tarnishes the university's reputation and standing among other competing schools and conferences when being considered for bowl games, conference expansions, etc. It does nothing but hurt our athletic programs chances for these great opportunities. By signing this petition, you're sending a message to our Athletic Director Cary Groth and President Milton Glick to please change the attendance reporting policy to 'tickets sold'. Thank you for your support, and Go Pack!!
