Fielding Yost was a candidate for the OSU job in 1897, and was promptly escorted off of the campus due to his maniacal behavior during the interview.

hah, no wonder he ended up at UNL in 1898

In 1898, Yost was hired to coach the Nebraska football team with compensation of $1,000 for 10 weeks of service.[12] The 1898 Nebraska team compiled an 8–3 record, including victories over Iowa State (23-10), Missouri (47–6), Kansas (18–6), and Colorado (23–10), and losses to Drake (6–5) and Iowa (6–5).

almost as good as Bo Pelini

Wow.

I knew that OWU hired him that year instead. 

I didn't know that he also spent one season at each Nebraska, Kansas and Stanford before settling into the Michigan job in 1901. 

That's a whole lotta bouncing around.

Shit happens and shit happened.

Wisconsin won the first two Western Conference championships, without helmets.

Apparently the helmet thing happened later?



Literally.

Good thing Princeton had the wing helmet first. Is Princeton a helmet school?



Wisconsin will never be a helmet because people say so.

So.. in the Big Ten, there are a good number of schools hitting nice attendance numbers, capacity-wise.


Then there are these, as pointed out earlier:

Illinois: 45,644 (75 percent)
Rutgers: 44,804 (85 percent)
Minnesota: 43,814 (83 percent)
Indiana: 43,027 (82 percent)
Maryland: 39,615 (76 percent)
Northwestern: 34,798 (74 percent)
Purdue: 34,798 (60 percent)


I think it would be good if everyone could get to 90 percent. Illinois, Maryland, Northwestern and Purdue have a lot of work to do in this area. Rutgers, Minnie and Indiana are really close.

Fix this!! Most of these schools have stadiettes, so it shouldn't be that hard.

Just note that the Purdue numbers are pre-Brohm.

What is capacity there now?

Even pre-King Barry, during the Morton years, UW averaged way more than that.

They won 6 games in those three years and averaged over 50K in that time. Of course, the population of greater Madison was well over 300K, even back then. That probably helped.

80% of capactiy is typically consider the tipping point for "healthy attendance" or "needs improvement".
As others have stated attendance has several variables, like opponet, time and weather, but 80%+ is the goal of most AD's.

Normally 62.5K but currently only about 57K, due to major changes in the south end zone.

Very true - the tailgates had probably 3-4 times as many people than actually went in. Not to mention the bars.
