Football - Will we bring the fans

So, will we put our money where our mouth is and show up in Jacksonville?

Jacksonville will have difficulty matching last year's championship game crowd of 72,749 if Georgia Tech plays Wake Forest, Maryland or Boston College. That would seem to hurt Jacksonville's chances of having the ACC pick up the option to let the city host the 2007 and 2008 games. But ACC Commissioner John Swofford probably understands that the teams in this game could draw small crowds anywhere -- including Charlotte.
