They announced a supposed 31,000 for this game today.
But I read where at least 20,000 tickets were given to the two schools involved.
So you're looking at maybe 10,000 local folk who showed up. But then again I read they were giving out freebies like there was no tomorrow.
So my question is whats the point of this thing? Why force the two schools fanbase to come all the way to Toronto to watch their teams play this game?
Wouldn't it be better to just play it in their own backyards? Because its obvious that outside of their own fans, noobody else cares about this thing up here.
I doubt we'll be seeing INternational Bowl 3. Unless they maybe go to a Canada vs US type game like they did back in the 80;s. Then you;d see alot more interest.
But Ball State vs Rutgers fighting for the INternational Bowl in Toronto? Whats the point?
