Despite Commonwealth Stadium only being around 72% capacity, many in attendance said the atmosphere inside was unique. Fans were excited and overjoyed in the first half after seeing the Cats storm out to a surprising 17-7 halftime lead. Mitch Barnhart took notice.
Is this an athletic director doing his job, willing fans to support a sputtering team that is desperate to show signs of life? Or is he just begging for ticket sales?
