After Years of Abysmal Football, Syracuse Fans Return to The Carrier Dome

Jameson FlemingSenior Writer IOctober 2, 2009

Syracuse-- Blowout losses, empty seats, and the never-ending frustration of the past four years is...suddenly gone?

Fans are filling those empty seats with never-ending optimism now looking for wins.

The players, especially the upperclassmen who've endured years of depressing defeats, appreciate the new-found enthusiasm the Carrier Dome faithful bring to the hill each Saturday.

According to Campbell, attendance should stay steady or even increase as the season wears on, which means the 'Cuse could average well over 40,000 people per game.

Campbell attributes the rise in ticket sales to the optimism that surrounds new coach Doug Marrone, the presence of local star Greg Paulus, and the $15 tickets in Touchdown Town that have the upper deck packed each game.
