    Mizoo Lack of Attendance

    Considering Mizoo was on the brink of bowl eligibility, senior day and all their excitment over the SEC all they could put in the stands was 54k in a 70k seat stadium - looked bad on TV. I wonder how few will be in KC for the KU game that is not televised?

    You REALLY need to read more than the first post in a thread...

    And what was going on at the CBE Tourney in KC last night? More than 11K in attendance? I thought everyone in KC hated Missouri now? I suppose a lot of them were UC-Berkeley fans.

    Re: Mizoo Lack of Attendance

    According to ESPN attendance numbers, Mizzou has only hit capacity once, this year, and it was against ISU. Every other home game, they've been under capacity, sometimes significantly.

    That's so sad for their players to have a fanbase that doesn't even support them at home.

    Doesn't the Sprint Center seat 18k+? ISU drew 11155 last night against a scrub team in a stadium that seats thousands less in a town a fraction the size of KC.

    Clearly we were their super bowl.

    Two huge metro areas and no one gives a ****. Sad for them.

    says the fanbase that couldn't sell out a night crowd against mizzou with the north title on the line. first time in history we could have won the north outright and we couldn't sell out a stadium with 20k fewer seats. now that is truly sad.

    i was depressed at that game seeing empty seats. this fan base really has no leg to stand on in terms of attendance. yes, this year was great but how many great attendance years have we ever had? not many.

    Except there were probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 3,000 that actually attended the ISU/UNC game

    Re: Mizoo Lack of Attendance

    The problem for Mizzou has been and always will be that Kansas City and St. Louis are pro-sport cities.

    No one really gives a crap about Mizzou unless they went to school there. The really only casual fans of college sports are fans of KU basketball though.

    ISU has a higher PUBLISHED attendance than Mizzou. Most stadiums play the inflated game.

    There really is no argument here. Missouri attendance and traveling reputaiton is not good, it's just the facts. Has been that way for years. You have two major cities on either side of you and you are drawing 50K. There really isn't an arguemnt you can make. It's just reality. You can say 2 plus 2 equals five, but it doesn't make it right.

    Argue about somethign else, this topic is a poor choice.

    Missouri: 6 million people.
    Iowa: 3 million people.

    Missouri? Draws 50,000 for a football game with 1 school.
    Iowa? 120,000+ on a weekend where Iowa and Iowa State play at home.

    Re: Mizoo Lack of Attendance

    I'm convinced there are 2 reasons the SEC wants Mizzou.

    1. To get an easy win for their other teams.
    2. They are near lots of eyeballs.
