    Re: Great game, lame crowd

    Why? Is this post really necessary? There was nothing wrong with the crowd today.

    I didn't think the crowd was exceptional, but seemed pretty energetic. Seriously, our crowd is pretty damn good for being a 2-8 team!

    SOunded like a madhouse on TV. When they didn't show the top corners, you would have thought the place was packed.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Great game, lame crowd

    Sure, it was tamer than OU, but it was far better than the Texas game! And as much as some people want everyone on their feet all game long, it is damn cold out at times, and not everyone is dong to jump at your command. He happy that people showed up and cheered the way they did, because after only winning one game before today really leaves nothing to cheer about. This victory was for more than jus the team, it was for those who still care enough to show up, standing or not, to cheer on their favorite team.

    Re: Great game, lame crowd

    Maybe it was just my position in the student section, but I thought the stadium was rocking. It was surely as loud as it was during the OU game.

    Re: Great game, lame crowd

    We had our ups and downs. Personally I find cheering warms you up too (as opposed to sitting on a metal bench...) but hey thats me.

    I was hoping for better but given our record, the kick off time and temps, it could have been a lot worse


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Re: Great game, lame crowd

    Lame my ***, the crowd was awesome in our section the entire game. We even had a student who was right next to me who's dad and brother were here for the weekend so he was in out section with them and he said we were just as loud as the student section. I don't know where you were at but it wasn't our part of the stadium.

    Re: Great game, lame crowd

    I would agree that the crowd was great. I was sitting in the bleachers below the scoreboard and everyone here did an awesome job by staying pumped. I
    don't know where you were sitting but by what I could see, the rest of the stadium was pumped as well.

    I really think you post only because you enjoy stirring the pot. Or, you just have little concept about anything. Plus, a thread about attendance already exists...

    http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...nce-today.html

    Was the attendance less than good? Of course. Were the fans in attendance into the game from start to finish, pushing their team to victory? You betcha.

    Re: Great game, lame crowd

    While I would have loved to see the upper deck corners filled, I thought in general the crowd was loud and into that game. We had to stand most of the 4th quarter to see as the defense was being cheered on to come up with a big play.

    Re: Great game, lame crowd

    I thought it was a great crowd! Sure, there could have been more people, but the people who were there were great!


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    Re: Great game, lame crowd

    While we were doing well, I thought the crowd was great. But, when we started doing all those QB keepers for no gain or a loss, you could just feel the energy leave the stadium. But then there were the ridiculous missed calls that got everyone back in it.

    I had been hoping for more people at the game, but considering our record, I don't know how you could expect anymore.
