    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

    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.
