12th Mitchell Bowl Discussion

The biggest problem with some of the Western teams like U of C and even the U of R in Regina is that they play in CFL stadiums. I usually hit up a game or two a season, but there's no atmosphere in the cavernous stadiums.

For what it's worth, here's last seasons CIS attendance averages, Calgary is right in the middle.

Thought McMaster's would be higher with all the support they received at the Vanier last year in Toronto. I guess most just one timer "fans".
