    Re: Hilton today.

    Is it safe to say that that will be the lowest announced attendance all year? I doubt we had a lot of walk ups for an exhibition.

    Well, it was a Sunday afternoon game, and the weather was really nice as well. I think attendance was probably boosted a little by the people who were in town for the football game yesterday.

    I would imagine some of the non-conference games in December, particularly the weekday night ones, won't be quite as well attended.

    Re: Hilton today.

    Everyone in our group of 13 made it, but there's no way that 13k were actually in Hilton. The student section is a huge indicator. They're sold out with many students overflowing into the $99 seats. Like every other segment of Hilton, they weren't there in large #s for this game.

    That's understandable. We all know that we won't be full for GVS. It's exciting to see us selling this many tickets this early. We should have some fantastic crowds this year.

    This. There was maybe 7,000 and that's being generous. I really thought more would show with all the hype surrounding the transfers.

    Well, I wouldn't say 13k showed up, but really great crowd for an exhibition game.

    I mean, there was still space for some to sit by themselves and rest their feet on the seat in front of them.

    Re: Hilton today.

    I was disappointed with the attendance. I was guessing it at 5,000...

    Re: Hilton today.

    They did this last year too. I remember watching on Clone Zone and they said 12k people were in attendance, but shots of the crowd didn't look like more than 4000-6000 were there.

    3 reasons more people weren't there.
    1. Football Game Saturday
    2. Exhibition doesn't matter
    3. 12:30 PM on on a Sunday

    Announced attendance is number of tickets sold. That's the standard.

    I also thought that the crowd would be bigger because of the hype. I know it was just an exhibition game but I was surprised that the student section was that empty.

    Re: Hilton today.

    The crowd was solid for an exhibition game the day after a football game. I never remember them drawing big actual crowds.

    Focus on the sold number. That should be a sign of big crowds come conference season.

    Re: Hilton today.

    I would guess there were probably 8-9,000 actually there. Obviously the announced attendance will be much much higher usually and will always be at least a little higher than actual attendance. I guess the winter break games will likely have lower attendance since student tickets don't include those games.

    There definitely way more people there than there were last year for the first out of conference games, let alone an exhibition game. I thought student attendance was weak (about half full), but the rest of the crowd was pretty good.

    EDIT: I am a student

    Re: Hilton today.

    Crowd was better than last year's exhibition game. I was guestimating something like 7 or 8 thousand actually there today. I imagine next week will be quite a bit better since it actually counts. Unfortunately, I doubt we see the student section fill up for anybody but UNI and Iowa during the non-conference.
