    Student turnout is apalling

    Do your best to defend them, alarson. The challenge is on.

    Lower level student section is MAYBE 80% full at tip. No finals. No midterms. No weekend to go home. No excuse. They need to lose upper deck seating next year. No reason to waste all these empty seats.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    There aren't 1000 students here. You telling me that 27000 kids have an unbearable amount of homework during a must win game?

    Re: Student turnout is apalling

    I'm with Al on this one. Turnout is pretty bad considering what this team has to play for. It's been years since Iowa State has been relevant. Disappointing that the students aren't more excited about this team.

    I'm not a part of Cy-Cult Alley so I can't go to games.

    Because you have to buy them to get football tickets. And be part of Cyclone Alley. And it's a Wednesday night game during a week when a lot of people have tests. And it's Ash Wednesday as well. So they are all battling deadites.
