    Get back in the stadium people!!!

    Seriously, all the empty seats and we're still in this game. I freaking HATE how we let people leave at the half and come back in. Problem is, thousands of people come back in late in the third quarter --- or don't come back in at all. Pathetic. Hope those few extra beers are worth it --- the guys NEED YOUR VOICES. Just another reason why I don't see us EVER taking that next step. Too many people more concerned about their alcohol than getting behind the team. Frustrating.

    Sorry to rant. Just something that's bothered me for a LONG time. Would love to be there today, but can't control when family members get married. But for those who are at the game, get your butts back in the stadium!

    Re: Get back in the stadium people!!!

    What was the attendance #?

    For the Win/Loss ratio - I don't think ANYONE can say that ISU doesn't support its teams.

    Yep because fans are what win championships, not the players.

    Re: Get back in the stadium people!!!

    Think of it this way -- if you were a player and came out after the half and noticed thousands of empty seats because your "fans" wanted to go out and drink while you and your teammates busted their butts on the field, what would you think? Especially when you're within reach of the 17th ranked team in the country?

    Just look around at other stadiums on game day. Do you think Kinnick Stadium would look that bad if Iowa was behind by a few scores? Nope. Do you think Kinnick would have all those empty seats late in a game that they were within two scores? Nope.

    Again, just frustrating to see -- and I for one would like to see a no re-entry rule at Jack Trice.

    I was there and left midway through the 3rd. I don't blame people for not coming back when the coaching staff refused to try a hail mary to end the first half. If the team and coaches don't want to PLAY to WIN why should we sit and watch.

    I agree with the subject at hand but I don't think we were ever within reach after their 27 unanswered points.

    I guarantee if ISU was winning at the half against this ranked team, people would be there cheering.

    Get back in the stadium people!!!

    Anybody watching can tell game isn't as close as the score. Our offense is terrible and our receivers can't catch passes my daughter catches in the back yard. When it hits both hands chest high you need to catch the damn ball.
