    Would attendance be higher if ISU was in the Big 10?

    I was at a Cyclone party last night and attendance was brought up. Somebody made an interesting point that the Big 12 does not have the Iowa appeal like the Big 10 does. He thought ISU would average in the mid 50's if ISU was in the Big 10 as the state of Iowa is more of a Big 10 state and would draw fans that were both Iowa/ISU fans.

    Would ISU draw more fans if attendance was higher? You know, like a network effect.

    ISU would draw more in the big 10, but not just because iowa is a 'big 10 state'. The effect would be from more visiting fans.

    Especially with nebraska in the big 10 next year, you'd have big attendance games with iowa, nebraska, minnesota, and youd also have wisconsin, illinois, and northwestern within 6 hours of ames (compared to only KU, KSU and MU within that distance now after NU leaves)

    That was my point too before idiots derailed the thread. I dont know if all the attendance issues are necessarily on ISU but on the conference we play in.

    Here's a thought: Maybe throw out your line of thought then. My bet is that you're just piling onto that excuse or you'da mentioned it above. And there's still no way we'd be mid 50s, so you are an idiot there. There aren't 55,000 places to put people.

    No, your OP was that ISU would suddenly attract more fans simply because Iowa(the state not school) football fans would be more interested in watching big 10 football. Theres a huge difference there.

    I have to ask, have you been to Jack Trice? There are not actual seats on the hill, you can pile people on those hills, making the stadium hold almost whatever you want, I mean you can stand on the pavement going up to the stands and watch the game.

    2009 Iowa State home attendance ave. - 46,242
    2009 Indiana home attendance ave. - 41, 833
    2009 Northwestern home attendance ave. - 24,190

    Maybe someone should tell Indiana and NW that they are in the Big Ten...

    Well I think it could be a little bit of both, but I do believe some of the issues is the conference.

    It only takes once. People figure out: "Holy ****! There aren't seats for more than 52,000 or so so we aren't going!" Plus, look at all those people piled into the hillsides in October and November! Its the place to be!
