Don't expect any elbow room at the Stadium yet.

Despite predictions from Rutgers 1000 and other naysayers, the Rutgers faithful are remaining faithful for now. With the deadline for season-ticket renewal passing yesterday, only 1% of the season tickets at Rutgers Stadium went unrenewed.

In addition to the 99 percent renewal rate, MacConnell said the season-ticket waiting list has grown to 11,241. He said he did not know of any people on the waiting list who have been able to purchase season tickets yet.
"So far, we haven't been able to get anyone off the waiting list," he said.

Keeping in mind that it costs money to put your name on the waiting list, it doesn't look like there's much chance that the new seats in the expanded stadium will go unfilled either.
