[quote]I've never understood the facility arms race. We have nice stuff but don't go overboard and it doesn't seem to affect recruiting one bit.

He's saying "If you keep using the AD only as a money maker, and refuse to give more of the money back for important hires, coaches like Butch Jones are the best we can do.

Considering there were less than 50,000 at the Troy game three weeks ago, compounded with back to back losses to shitty teams, I'd venture to guess about mid 30,000 actual tickets scanned.
It will be announced as 75,000 though. ...
