If you look at stadium shots of big-but-not-Power 5 conference games, it's frequently shocking how sparse the crowds are. And even some major conference games are not a lot better. Stadium shots of the Maryland-Rutgers B1G game (nominal attendance = 30,000) showed noticeable number of empty seats and last night's Wyoming-New Mexico game had less than 17,000. Granted they aren't Michigan-OSU, but I think the base of big stadiums filled with boisterous fans is a smaller footprint than may be realized.

Of course this should also send a cautionary note about the expected attendance at a basketball tournament to anyone who is really listening.

Year one of the basketball tournament might not be so bad, especially if the teams which appear to be the top four now end up making it. Penn, Princeton, Harvard and Yale is the best that the league can hope for. Penn fans will always show up to root for the Quakers and against Princeton. Tiger fans have the short drive. Harvard and Yale have had recent NCAA tournament success.

If some future field is Brown, Columbia, Cornell and Dartmouth, that will be a bad look for the television cameras.
