    So happy we dont have to bribe fans

    I dont know if this has been posted but got a chuckle out of it.

    Buy student season tix, get free OSU ftbl ticket

    Per HN board. At it again, trying to get a few fans in the stands for bball. I wonder when the, "Students get in free + hot dog and pop" will start this season?

    Re: So happy we dont have to bribe fans

    We are giving away student tickets. We couldn't being 20,000 to KC. Let's not throw stones at that House. It is much bigger than ours. In all reality, bball attendance matters very little in comparison to football attendance.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Our basketball attendance wasn't a hell of a lot better last year. Especially students.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Evidently their awesome new campaign, "Lets Get Mad Again" isn't working too well. Hmm, who would have thought that wouldn't generate excitement!?

    While I agree we are not in a position to throw stones, the Hawk consecutive sellout streak is about the biggest sports PR scam ever concocted. When they have a game in jeopardy of not selling out they call local companies the day before the game and they say we have a bunch of tickets left, we'll sell them to you for a dollar or $3 or $5 or whatever and you can give them away to your employees as a perk. Then they call the game a sellout. I've worked at TWO different companies that have participated in this. Obviously it's not happening as much now, but early in the Ferentz era this was a REGULAR occurrence, like WEEKLY.

    Football season tickets sell for $99-$375.

    Basketball season tickets sell for $99-$495.

    Selling one more, a hundred more or a thousand more season basketball tickets will have just as important an effect on the AD's bottom line as selling the same number of season football tickets.

    I find it ironic that this thread and the following thread are on the page at the same time:

    not true at all, we were third in the Big12 in attendance and 26th in the nation, which is outstanding given the team we had to watch. You can't rag on Iowa State bball fans, men's or womens

    For comparison iowa barely cracked the top50 in attendance and was 9th in the big10, only ahead of Penn State and Northwestern

    Paid Attendance yes. Actual Attendance, not at all.

    The student attendance was ******* pathetic. They might have bought tickets, but most games they didn't even fill the lower level of CA.

    well yeah, I bet other schools don't even count actual attendance, they are probably only counting people that stand and yell for their team the whole game.

    Only at Iowa State do we try and belittle our own

    Good to know that we don't have to offer any promotions to sell our tickets.

    We sell around 28000 season tickets in football. Hilton holds 14092. Way more important to get football tickets sold out cause you have more of the high dollar tickets to get rid of. Yeah it is important to sell out basketball but football is the priority
