    Not to be a downer but we had 7 home games while a few of the teams below us only had 6. These results are a little skewed because of this so we should actually be lower for total attendance...

    they counted the game in KC?


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Neutral-site attendance from games like the Red River Rivalry, Border Showdown and Kansas State-Iowa State aren't factored into these numbers.

    The humbling number is the percentage of capacity, in which ISU comes in 11th (82.58%).

    Not really. Average per game is more significant. 54th is nothing to sneeze at, especially for a team that the so called experts say should drop to a mid major status.

    How many teams are in DI football? About 120? Better than most, I guess.

    For a fan base that is as passionate as ISU, and for a team that just came off a bowl win a year after losing 10 straight, I think 45k/game is embarrassing...

    And if we listed the number of actual seats as our capacity, which many schools who have standing room only do, we'd be over 100% capacity.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    You should just make this part of your sig at this point. It would save you the time of having to remind everybody every time the attendance issue comes up.

    Ehh, Cartman is funnier.

    It's no more tired than any other part of this entire attendance debate. Personally, I AM disappointed in our attendance, but when you step back and look at it from the big picture, it isn't nearly the problem some make it out to be. That's my whole point.

    Dont get me wrong...I'm well aware of that. I guess my point was, more or less, that the ISU fanbase can do MUCH better!
