    Next Sellout?

    When do you think the next sellout will be? After the UT debacle (which seems to happen every time ISU has a big game on TV) I don't think the fringe fans will be coming back this year. The 40k or so faithful will always be there but we need the 10-15k fringe and bandwagon fans to sellout JTS. My guess is possilby the TAM game if we win one of the next two and have good weather - if we lose the next two then there will not be another sellout this year. The OSU game being a night game in Nov will keep people away - no matter how big the game is.

    The Texas A&M game is homecoming, expect 50,000 or more. The KU game will not be televised so expect around 45,000-47,000. The OSU game could be a huge turnout (sellout) or a 45,000 turnout, depending record wise. But its on a Friday night at 8 pm there will be a good turn out.

    I've got $1,000 says you're not within 3,000 on any of the above. Wanna take that bet?

    Easiest bet ever considering we've sold 37k season tickets.

    I hope your right, but I really think our attendance will take a huge hit. I think we might have lost the fair weather fans for the year, or at least for a couple games, and then it will be too cold for them

    Re: Next Sellout?

    Depends on the next two weeks. Come back strong and get back to back road wins, and the house is packed for A&M. Split, and it's probably around 50K. Lose both? 45K, and it just gets worse from there.

    This is probably about right - Homecoming will get that because it is homecoming. We may get decent attendance but KU will not bring any fans so that will hurt the numbers. OSU I would be pleased to get that many.

    It depends on how ISU plays the next two weeks. If ISU wins at BU and Mizzou and plays well in both, I could see A&M possibly being sold out still.

    Even bad ISU teams bring 40k to the game. This is not a bad ISU team.

    Next year, unless ISU wins the next 2 games. If ISU goes 2-0 next 2 weeks, then id say the A&M game will be. If not, it wont be. Not saying what i want, just my prediction.
