    Looked pretty full on TV...maybe not sold out full, but the attendance figures generally reflect tickets sold, not butts in seats.

    Champaign to Iowa City is quick drive. Thousands of Illinois fans with 2 hours.

    I know Iowa's crowds have been very poor, but I wouldn't expect Ill fans to have great seats.

    Good for them. Wrong board however. I'm not going to try to sell them short, selling out for Iowa takes a lot more than opponents traveling. It looked like their fans had a a good turnout. I fully expect us to have a similar turnout against our first home game/game against a ranked team (Kansas).

    Went to the game. I'd say about 13k or so were actually there. Probably 1k or so Illinois fans, most of which were at the very top.

    The
    New coach has helped one he wins they will be back at 15500




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    If they keep losing these games against quality competition, they will struggle to put fans in seats.

    No way. Iowa fans only supporting winning teams is a myth. The reason they haven't had good attendance is because none of them care or have ever cared about basketball. Definitely not bandwagon jumpers. They wouldn't care even if they were good.

    So that is what they are waiting on before completely falsifying attendance numbers. Good to know they draw the line somewhere.
