Less than 5000.

They will buy the remaining tickets to avoid embarrassment.

How can it not sell out with all this buzz that Leitao, Ponsetto and Chip are talking about?

No, but the delusional mf'ers who somehow still have their jobs will say it did.  I hope DePaul loses by 50 to ND and does not win a game this season.

I dont think it can sell out but if they get to the 8000 # I said earlier it will be ND fans that fill the place

No sell out and ND fans will not show up because they are playing a huge Football game vs. undefeated Miami that day that will be of more interest to them then shellacking DePaul

ND football game is a night game. I'd imagine their alumni will show up en masse 3pm to 5pm and then head to local watch parties for the football game.

I say it'll either be a sellout or extremely close.

No other game will be over 8k all season, maybe over 6k depending on how Marquette's season goes.

I'd say, Northwestern, Marquette and Nova fill the place.

Almost got that many at Allstate.

Well the ND/Miami game is a night game now so that could help, still lots of tickets on the DePaul website. Northwestern and Marquette will be the largest draws imo this year. Nova is a weeknight game over the holiday break - that will be tough to get a sellout, all the hoops fans in the city head to high school tournaments, Bulls are playing at home that night, etc. Will be a tough draw to get fans in.

Then, if you're a basketball fan.  What a better time to go to a DePaul/ND game and follow it with the Bulls? 

This is why we moved into the City, to draw with the Bulls and other interests.

What a crock!!
