Sparse crowd, against top opponent with nice weather.
Team claims average crowd is 692.
Looking at TV screen, I would guess half that yesterday.

Oddly team stated 815 yesterday. Maybe they transposed the 8 and 1.

I had planned to attend but given the forecast, made other plans for Fathers Day and watched on ESPN+.

@Phat7Deuce puts out a weekly attendance recap and YTD tracker one-page. We sit near the very bottom of all USL Championship and USL League 1 teams.

I think the team needs to consider the hybrid approach (own players, coaches, etc...) but let someone else run the business element (like Rio Grande Valley and Reno 1868) with the agreement that the team will be local enough to train together with the first team.
MSU is obviously not drawing the crowds. Question is where would the minor league team draw a crowd that an investor would be willing to be involved and USL signs off on?

Doesn't Jorgenson have like 5 goals in 7 appearances? That goal was extremely impressive though. Extreme level of speed

3 of his goals were gimmes. Two showed skill. The amount of wide open misses in the box is absurd.

He does much better when he is cutting in from the corner of the 18 and using his speed.

Granted the 5 goals in 7 matches looks impressive, Barlow and White earn millions less and look better.

Ridiculous that this game is 0-0.

That's because Jorgensen is beyond awful at finishing.

Rito HAS to get a first team contract!
