    sad

    I was looking at the Big 12 press release and i noticed the attendance figures of the games. we were 2nd to last in attendance (ok st being worse). thats right...baylor beat us.... come on clone fans... come to the game saturday unless listening to it on radio is so much more exciting...with attendance numbers like this we will never move into the upper tier of the conference. lets sellout saturday and lay a hurtin on UNLV


    ISU ROCKS!!!!

    Well that's bad, but half of the crowd at the Baylor game were TCU fans.

    TCU had almost as many fans as Baylor did...but I still see your point.

    I was really hoping for a sellout but it wasnt even close to being one. It was sad seeing all of those empty seats in the upper deck.

    The game was Thursday night . . . I know that was meant to keep the students around, but whether it maximizes total attendance is a little iffy.

    regardless of keeping the students around, i know many students who didnt come due to class and homework and many alumni that couldnt come because of work obviously. so either way there should be a much better turn out this weekend and the place should be rocking. especially on a saturday night game. nobody has a reason to skip

    Also, of those who tailgated all day, how many slept through the game under a bus somewhere in the grass lots? 'Cause I've never done that.


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.

    I don't know...I've heard alot of grumbling about our close win. I know I will be there, but I fear some people have given up already.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    I got home at 2:15 AM

    I think the late Thursday game cost us a lot of people. I got home at 2:15 AM. I took 2 days off because of this game, but I don't know many people that can do that.

    No one has a reason to skip?...OK, I live in Africa for work, and the commute is just a we bit too long! My wife doesn't understand me being up in the middle of the night trying to catch night games on the web (we are 7 hours ahead of Iowa time)...but I do it anyway!

    MAJOR reason is.....

    There is no doubt about it in my mind. The major reason why we did not have a sellout for this game is due to the fact that it was a Thursday night game. I was there, but a lot of us that had to be at work early on Friday were hurtin' puppies for a couple days. And, as some have already posted, we have to prove that we can win consistently and also win the big game (e.g. KU. MU, NU from last season) once in a while.

    I am looking for a bigger crowd this Saturday, but it probably still will not be a sellout because, afterall, it is just UNLV ;-).

    I seriously doubt Baylor had more Baylor fans than ISU in attendance.
    the crowd for ISU was good so the upper deck corners were not full big whoop rest of the stadium was full.

    baylor beat us by 203 TCU fans big whoop.
