    Iowa state fans and NCAA tourney

    Just for fun
    If Iowa state was placed in the Omaha region, how many cyclone fans would be attendance? I'd guess 10k, but maybe thats way to generous. I know we travel well football wise and to the big 12 tourney, but it seems like forever since we've been to the NCAA.

    Anywhere else I'm not sure how great our turn out would be

    It's been 8 years since we were relevant in basketball....I think we would easily bring 10,000.

    Re: Iowa state fans and NCAA tourney

    I don't think it would be unrealistic to think at least 10K for a location as close as Omaha. I know I would be going if they wind up there.

    Re: Iowa state fans and NCAA tourney

    As a middle of the road seed, the committee would never place us in Omaha, too much of an advantage. Higher seed, maybe.

    We would sell out Qwest, if they did.

    Re: Iowa state fans and NCAA tourney

    count me in for 4 tickets. only 9996 more to account for. I think we sell the place out, but that is just me.

    Re: Iowa state fans and NCAA tourney

    All I can garuntee, is that we would definitely bring more fans than Missouri, they dont travel well for any sport. Omaha would have the best draw if they got Kansas and ISU, Omaha would get a huge boom to their local economy.

    I would think at least 10k, but also depends on time the game is played. Thursday during work hours would not be as big a crowd as Friday night game.

    I don't think it is too much exaggeration to think we had close to 20k at the Metrodome when we beat Auburn. That was the last ISU NCAA game I attended.

    Re: Iowa state fans and NCAA tourney

    Given that if we were there it would probably be us and KU fans, the place would probably sell out.

    Re: Iowa state fans and NCAA tourney

    I had started changing my plans around so that I could go to Omaha if that's where ISU ended up. But there's a good discussion about why it probably won't happen in this thread: http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...cketology.html

    Basically if Missouri, Kansas and/or Baylor are the top two seeds there, then ISU can't go there because conference teams can't meet in the second round. Also, there's a question about whether or not it would be considered a "home-crowd disadvantage" for a top 4 seed.

    Re: Iowa state fans and NCAA tourney

    I looked at the first and second round sites for next year, since we will be pretty damn good if Royce stays. There is one site in KC, that would be pretty amazing to be placed there. After that, there isn't really a site that is all that close to Ames. I know that has nothing to do with this thread, just that I'd share.

    Re: Iowa state fans and NCAA tourney

    I don't have a source and I'm not going to look it up ... but I recall reading somewhere that the Omaha first and second round site is already sold out.

    Not a huge surprise, KU fans have to think they'll be going there so they've bought the place up. I want to say there's a portion that is an allotment given to each team, but obviously that depends on priority points with the AD and would be limited. There will be scalpers though, for sure.
