    Big 12 Men's Attendance 2012-2013

    After seeing time and time again the terrible crowd attendance for away games this year for the ISU men, I decided to look up how they would rank against our women's team who I believe is 2nd nationally in attendance...

    KU.... 16,445
    ISU... 13,015
    KSU.. 12,783
    < ISU Women... 9,805
    OSU... 9,239
    OU.... 8,525
    Bu.... 7,914
    UT...
    WV...
    TT...
    TCU....
    .... really the bottom 5 are not worth putting a number on because its just tickets sold, and they really had way less in attendence.

    It seems crazy to me how teams (OSU, OU, BU) are having good/decent seasons and still nobody goes! Just goes to show how amazing our fans in Hilton really are! Hope to send these seniors out on a good note waving one of the 14,350 pom poms around tonight!

    Good stats. I still can't believe OSU's crowds with a top 15 team...

    Crazy that our women outdraw them.

    No way Baylor has an actual attendance of 7,900, probably half that.

    Re: Big 12 Men's Attendance 2012-2013

    ISU women actually finished the season with a 9,970 average. Not their best year for the turnstile, but definitely in the top 5 all-time. No clue why fans of some of these men's teams won't support them when they are having decent seasons - in some cases, like OU and OSU, for the first time in years. I'm happy to be at a place where the fans appreciate the programs we have and the programs appreciate the fans and refuse to take them for granted.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)

    Think it is a product of having an NBA team in the city & not being that large of a market. People are having to make a decision - Ok State or the Thunder w/Durant, etc. Think the Thunder draw good crowds (but I am too lazy to search right now).

    It's hard to believe that they go to cheer on a 'horn. There is no love lost between those fanbases.

    This is the excuse that they use, but Stillwater is roughly 70 miles from both OKC and Tulsa. Together they have combined metro populations of over 2 million. Des Moines is 580,000. That excuse does not hold water in my book.

    OSU's attendance has improved a lot here at the end of the season. Still not very good, though.

    Also, Baylor women outdraw their mens team. By a lot.

    Our attendance has reached much higher levels recently. Our team doesn't really schedule good non-conference games, so there isn't much interest in those. Below are some attendance numbers recently.

    Texas - 12,474
    Kansas - 13,611 (oversold, so there were many more than that, standing room kinda thing)
    Oklahoma - 13,611 (same as Kansas, trying to get people to the games)
    and then you get to the Baylor game, before they started their push to get people to the games..
    Baylor - 7,547
    Iowa State - 8,776


    There have been a lot of fans who decide between Thunder and Cowboy/Sooner basketball these days. Getting the students back is the key to it all. Our students became apathetic to basketball since football started rising here and since Eddie crashed and Sean burned.

    I also think everybody thought we would falter down the stretch like most of our recent teams have done. It wasn't until that Kansas win that people thought "Hey this team is actually pretty darn good.

    Anyways, that's my take.

    Pretty sad. You guys have one heck of a talented team. What they lack in size they make up for in athleticism and that will serve them well in the NCAA Tournament.
