Here is the problem with numbers some don't understand. The student section has almost 3,000 seats all in the lower bowl. Many schools don't have student section that big. For example, the Kohl Center student section seats 2,100 over three decks. So, if MU's section is only half full we are still talking 1,500 students at the game. If that happens during the school week, that is really a good turnout. Yet, people don't understand the numbers and thinks it sucks.
