According to General Manager Mitch Holloway of the Holiday Inn World's Fair Park in a WATE report, "So goes UT football, so goes the city."

Apparently area hotels "bank their entire yearly budget on how much they'll make during football season."

Only 89,000 people attended the last game. Last year game attendance averaged 94,000, as compared to 104,000 in 2007.

Woe is me. Alas, Derek Dooley is destroying downtown Knoxville.
