    Does saturday affect our attendance the rest of the year?

    This is just like last year, all the casual fans who don't always show up come and watch Iowa State stumble. We had GREAT attendance last year don't get me wrong, but do you think our fans are tired of the same old story? I know plenty of people who aren't really cyclone fans but came anyways because Iowa State was 3-0 and they thought ISU had a great shot at starting 4-0 for the first time in 10+ years. Its disappointing and were all frustrated, but when does Iowa State take that next big leap? Everyone talked about it all week, blum wrote a great article about Iowa State and taking the next big jump, but it just doesn't seem to happen. Upsetting teams that we shouldn't doesn't really matter in the long run when your finishing 6-6 and going on 3-4 game losing streaks each year. To us its exciting to upset a top 25 team, but nationally it does nothing other then "oh yeah you guys beat Oklahoma state that one year". I feel bad for our guys, and I bet there hurting but I also think were going to see an offense explode on saturday. I hope Steele sits in the film room all week and somehow someway figures out his mistakes. I know cyclone nation will continue to support Iowa state and our players, but I also think were not going to pick up the casual fans if we continue this trend of winning and then losing. Its a marathon not a race and we have 8 football games left, lets see what our guys can do

    yes but it's not like it will drop dramatically at least in terms of tickets sold.

    Tickets sold really shouldn't be impacted too much no matter what. We've already sold a ton for the rest of the games. Actual may decline, but I'd expect around 56,000 for Farmageddon in two weeks.

    54,617 or something like that. Over 54.5k.

    Saturday won't help, but it won't do much. KSU is already a huge sales day. Win 1 or 2 of the next couple games and it's like Saturday never happened.

    Greatest impact would probably be a couple hundred fans, if that.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Have a good showing on the road on Saturday or even *gasp* win the game, and there won't even be a home game for the Tech showing to have a significant effect.

    No. It wasn't a blowout like typically happens. Texas, Utah, etc.

    Did the Texas game change our attendance last year? No.

    The amount of stupidity on this board after our FIRST loss on this season is astounding, but not surprising.

    Re: Does saturday affect our attendance the rest of the year?

    KSU for family week combined with the 100th anniversary for ISU Homecoming with Baylor should ensure good attendance for both of those games. It's the Friday game vs WVU I'd worry about if we don't get things turned around in a hurry. We need JTS to be rocking for that game, and most people aren't going to bother with the hassle of a Friday night game after Thanksgiving if we're sitting at 4 wins.

    If I were a Cyclone fan I'd stop going. You guys played your "superbowl" against us, with a crazy loud crowd and we won with ease.
