A lot of people did not go because they are fed up with Les Miles.
Well that's a load a bull shite.
People don't go because it's nothing new, on a wednesday, and are worried about checkpoints. For most casual fans once you have been to one, you've seen what it has to offer. Only die hard fans care about recruiting classes enough to skip work and pay to hang out in the middle of the week.
If it were because of Miles, his luncheons, speaking engagements, spring games would all be empty. And that's definitely not the case.
