    Estimated Crowd vs Baylor

    Have they announced the estimated size of the crowd for this weekend? Hopefully the cold weather doesn't keep the fans away. The crowds have been great so far and I hope that continues.

    Re: Estimated Crowd vs Baylor

    baylor should bring 8 or 9 people. So that would leave us to bring the rest.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Estimated Crowd vs Baylor

    I'd be shocked if announced attendance was anything south of 54,000.

    Actual attendance will probably be a little less (52Kish), but the stadium will look completely full. It can be difficult to tell the difference between 50K and 55K via the "eye" test.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I won't be simply because you know there's 3,997 empty seats on the southwest side.

    I will be attending my first game of the season. Damn kids make it tough to make the treck. When they get older, I can bring them down too.

    My dad did the three game mini pack, and all of his tickets are in Section H, Row 2. So it appears they were selling the mini packs from one of the Visitor's section. It also looked like they did this for the K-State game as well.

    Can't people on the hillside fill those in after kick? Or is that frowned upon?

    Never happens, anymore at least. Consequences are just too swift and severe.
