from 2005-06 season where we go 31-4 and make third straight final four
"LSU’s average home attendance of 6,273
this season ranks 14th in the nation. The
Lady Tigers are second to Tennessee
among Southeastern Conference schools."
next season when we go back to final four and still have big syl

Well, I'm not exactly sure what the point of your posting is at this point. However, I can also do the same...........
In 2004-05 we ranked 10th in attendance.. NCAA 2004-05 attendance numbers....
In 2005-06 we ranked 15th in attendance... NCAA 2005-06 Attendance numbers......
In 2006-07, the year after Seimone graduated I might add, we ranked 17th in attendance.. NCAA 2006-07 Attendance Numbers......
In 2007-08, Sylvia Fowles final season, we ranked 18th in attendance.... NCAA 2007-08 Attendance Numbers.....
So, I'm not sure exactly what your point is? If its to prove that I had my numbers off slightly, congratulations. You've succeeded. If its to prove LSU women's basketball is irrelevant, you've failed miserably. LSU ranked 10th, 15th, 17th, and 18th during those years.....................out of over 100 Div I programs (the NCAA only list 100 at the most on its site, however). So, if you want to compare LSU to it's peers then I'd say that most Div I programs would KILL for the fan support our program has gotten.
But why stop there.........We know LSU football is the big draw here at the university. But what about all the other sports we have? Well let's see..............
Baseball - 7,508 Women's basketball - 7,302
Baseball - 7,320 Women's basketball - 6,273
Baseball - 7,330 Women's basketball - 5,573
I dunno dude..........................looks like when we win, LSU women's basketball is almost as popular as LSU baseball.............which is the second (or third depending on men's basketball every year) most popular sport here at LSU. So, I guess this means that LSU baseball is also "irrelevant".
I could compare LSU women's basketball attendance to LSU gymnastics, soccer, softball, volleyball, golf, swimming, and track and field. But, I think we all know who'd win the attendance numbers there, right?
So again................what's the point? That we shouldn't be supporting a women's basketball program because to many people its "irrelevant"? Doesn't make a lot of sense to me and, thankfully it doesn't make much sense to our athletic administration.
