Probably a little. But we are not playing recognizable teams to draw other than hardcore fans, and the weather, and the location, etc. Maybe since youth and high school lacrosse starts in early March schedules conflict. Here are our figures for this year:

1367 v. OSU (Saturday at Ultimate, mostly Titan fans, a lot of youth and high school lax players)
559 v. Robert Morris (at Ultimate)
327 v. Mercer (Ultimate, mid-day, mid-week game)
327 v. Manhattan (Titan Field, mid-30s and sunny)
413 v. Monmouth (Titan Field, partly sunny, low 50s)
313 v Canisius (Titan Field, partly sunny, low 50s).

Away games:
684 v. Sienna (perfect weather)
332 v. Marist (windy and cold)
472 v. Qunnipiac (snowy)
230 v. Air Force
287 v. Bellarmine
188 v. Marquette (in Louisville)
752 v. UofM (Oosterban)

We actually have the highest average home attendance in the conference.
Average home attendance for MAAC teams:
1. Detroit 551
2. Canisius 489
3. Quinnipiac 481
4. Siena 479
5. Monmouth 402
6. Marist 331
7. Manhattan 318

But yeah, if we're averaging 551 and draw a little over 300, I guess that's disappointing.

Only 22 of 69 D-I teams average more than 1000. Let's say that lacrosse has a ways to go. The Titans, btw, rank 35th nationally in average attendance.
