Cal just had Marshawn Lynch play in there spring game. Could you imagine the showout if JJ Watt or Russell Wilson participated in Wisconsins for a series or two?
I'd guess 10,000 fans and a whole lot of embarrassment. The atmosphere of a real UW football game (i.e. drinking, tailgating, partying) is the only thing that can get our fans to show up....their lives don't revolve around UW football.
I'm about as crazy about UW sports as they come and even I will be attending my first ever Spring game this year. I live 75 miles away and the atmosphere just isn't intriguing enough to get me to make the drive when I can just watch it on TV instead and get what I need out of it. The only reason I'm even going this year is that I'm beyond curious to see what the new offense and switch to the 3-4 look like.
I agree with BadgersRBest, the way to get even 40k people there is to make it a party. Maybe making it into a family day type event could work as well, but those two things are mutually exclusive.
