with me, i would also have to blame age and having a family for my reason to watch at home more often than i used to, but i have younger cousins who have never known crappy TVs, let alone crappy TV contracts that didn't televise every single game somewhere, so they've never grown up experiencing a situation where if you don't go to the game, you don't see the game. their teams' games have pretty much ALL been televised for their entire life, so going to live events is a really expensive novelty as opposed to something they feel that HAVE to do from time to time. totally different fan base coming through our universities, and it WILL impact ticket sales 10-15 years from now. even the mighty SEC with all their 90k+ seat stadiums won't be immune to this change in fanbase.
