    I wonder how long the game lasted?

    One hour and 55 minutes. It was shorter than the James Madison record. I was there but didn't participate. Wish I would have

    So, does this mean ISU has better or worse shooters than James Madison?
    And also, if another group of people break the record with 361 people, I'm coming after you. ;)

    if all the 1000+ people on facebook who said they were showing up would have showed up, then it'd be a real record.

    Problem is the publicity could lead this to be a short-held record. It's not that hard to beat, if you follow the rules

    Re: ISU Breaks World Record for Largest Knockout Game

    i was like the 225th-ish person eliminated and i was there for about 1 hour 20 minutes if that gives any perspective.

    plus i believe the James Madison record stood for only a little over a month, so i wouldn't be surprised for this to get beaten out pretty soon

    Yeah, JMU just got the record in February.

    Anyone know the name of the ISU student who won?

    Doesn't say who won, just says that Dustin Gray, Mitch Wenum and Lindsey Leas were the final three...

    I know Mitch Wenum got second(friend), so I would guess Dustin got first and Lindsey got third

    Re: ISU Breaks World Record for Largest Knockout Game

    I was the 29th person out!!!

    Fricken sucked. My free throw went off the back rim really high and the guy behind me made his free throw.

    Let's beat it next year!

    I wanna know why it is a VEISHEA event, but not during VEISHEA..... I bet they could've gotten way more people if they did it during the actual week.
