I could be wrong, but isn't that near capacity for Yost?LightningRod said:What amazed me about the Michigan-Mich ST match last night was the fact that only 6900 people showed up for what is supposed to be a huge rival game. They play again tonight at the Joe, so maybe attendance in Detroit will be higher. But for being one of the dominant teams in recent years, the fans certainly do not show for the rival games.
