I am a fan of Northwestern, a school with 11 fans. I know what it's like when there are no fans in a college football stadium. Some teams, like Northwestern, try to hide it, with tarps. Others, like Illinois, pretend there are actually fans there, which doesn't go well:

This is not the first time they have done this:

Props to the students for having the coordination to sit in a square with their colors, and more importantly, for figuring out how to make this look like a letter despite there being exactly eight people there.

Illinois: You need to stop! You're just helping everybody notice that there are no fans there!
