I don't think I agree with that statement. MMA is still a very young sport and has had a lot of top level athletes go into it. 2 dual title holders (Cejudo and Cornier) were the top of the wrestling game. Frye, Coleman, Severn, Randleman, Romero, Mark Schultz, Hendricks, Kevin Jackson, etc. all were top wrestlers, with several having international success. Top jui jitsu practiners go into it. Top boxers normally don't because they would get mauled and the money is better at the top in their sport.

Timely article by Ben Koo. They still aren't profitable yet despite claiming to be. https://awfulannouncing.com/athletic/the-athletic-raises-22-million-in-new-investment.html

Without MoC they have no running game which was very evident in 2003.  Without Jenkins they have an even more limited passing game and may not have had a suitable replacement to be that clutch performer.  Without Nugent they have a mortal kicking the ball that might cost a few games. Without Gamble who knows what happens.     

Fact is that with 19 players that went to the NFL in 2003 and 2004 drafts, its extremely difficult to pick 1 guy to really be the MVP.  That squad, more than any other I can remember, was a full sum of all its parts.

I give Nickal all the credit. He will likely pin Moore too. There is a still a big difference between what is being coached in State College from what is being coached in Columbus (and everywhere else). Second place is the ceiling for the foreseeable future. Still doesn't change my feeling that I am not shocked that Martin fell short again.

They haven't waned...they had 99000 in 2015, over 100K in 2016.  In 2017 and 2018, they had B deck and C deck construction going on, capping last season's game at 79,000 for sales.  That's the reason for the dip in raw numbers.  They had 80,000 in 2017 with the majority of C deck closed.
