    Final Numbers

    Being we are closing in on the bowl game (TWO WEEKS PEOPLE) I was curious of what the numbers stand at for tickets sold and such for us. Last I heard it was around 12k. Which is unbelievable. South Jack Trice will be poppin' ;)

    13k through the Ticket Office. In another thread, it seemed like a surprising number of CFers were buying their tickets from the Liberty Bowl or Stub Hub. If that is an indicator, then the number will be much higher than 13k.

    here's that poll. nearly 30% of posters who voted bought their tickets outside of isu ad. 20k total fans there is not out of the question.

    13,500 x 1.3(30%)=17,550...so far.

    Plus, there will probably be 1,000+ that come to Memphis to party, but won't even attend the game.

    Re: Final Numbers

    I think there will be 15-16k total ISU fans.

    Can't see it being any higher, but some will claim 20-25k I'm sure.

    Great showing either way.

    There will be 20,000 ISU fans in Memphis, trust me, I'm rarely ever wrong.

    I dont see why you would guess that. 13k+ just through the AD. An informal poll of the group most likely to skew towards buying from the AD shows a significant number not buying through the AD, which makes sense because unless you're a donor above a certain level (or getting your seats through one), your seats will likely be better buying through the bowl.

    I'm betting on 20k.

    I expect 15k, but someone will probably find a way to call it 20k.

    I like the statistical analysis, relatively small sample here of an AD biased crowd, or at least the people who post.
    If we only sold 9k for insight in 09, I'm guessing there were at least 5k more sold and A lot more people tailgating. And that was a much more expensive trip with just as blah of a matchup, albeit first bowl in awhile.

    I agree with the 20k mark. I still know a lot of people without tickets.

    I hope you guys are correct . . . of course, then someone will find a way to call it 25k.

    Do you have any idea how cheap the posters on CF are? How often do people ask for streams rather than getting Cyclones.TV, for example?

    I find it annoying that no matter what the real number is, people tend to try to make it larger in their reporting.
