    Will we break 50K attendance every game this season?

    Are we going to be able to keep the streak alive? Here's our home games this season:

    Sat, Aug 31st - UNI
    Sat, Sept 14th - Iowa
    Thu, Oct 3rd - Texas
    Sat, Oct 26th - Oklahoma State (Family Weekend)
    Sat, Nov 9th - TCU (Homecoming)
    Sat, Nov 23rd - Kansas

    UNI and Iowa will be for sure sell outs. First two games of the season and they are against in state teams.

    Texas I think will depend on how the first three games go. If we are 1-2 and get smoked by Iowa and/or Tulsa I could see us not breaking 50k. But as long as we are at least 2-1 I think we'll get there. If we are 3-0 going in it'll be a sell out.

    Oklahoma State is family weekend, so I think we'll hit 50k just off of that as long as the season isn't a total dumpster fire up to that point.

    TCU is Homecoming. So similar to the OSU game I think we hit 50k just based off it being Homecoming.

    Kansas I'm not as confident about though. It is the Saturday before Thanksgiving. It'll probably be cold. If predictions are right we might be going for win #3. And if predictions are wrong and we're winning a lot of games then people might skip because they are expecting a blowout. There's a lot going against this game right now.

    So I think we keep the streak alive until at least the Kansas game. But it would be great to keep it alive going in to next season.

    If we can get 50+ k for Western Illinois, we have a decent chance this year. If KU is better, maybe they'll bring more fans up.


    As long as we're playing hard and staying close in games whether win or lose, our fans reward effort.

    Student tickets sold is what counts. Not ones who actually show up. Student Section = Sellout = don't worry about Thanksgiving break.

    Tickets sold is all that is measured and no question it will happen again.

    If we have only won two games midway through the season the attendance is probably going to drop off.

    Actually, all season tickets is what counts. I really don't remember where or when, but I think it was an interview someone did with AD Pollard where he said we would be over the 40,000 mark for season tickets this year. If the team is halfway decent, we should find too much of a problem getting another 10K in. And I'm sure with JP's quick thinking on ticket pricing, we'll do just fine.

    The only way I don't see it happening, if the first half of the season goes ugly fast.

    Pollard has already said he expects the first three games to be sellouts. Family Weekend and Homecoming will easily be over 50k, which leaves us with the game vs. Kansas. Will be a sellout as long as the team is doing relatively decent. As someone already said, attendance numbers that game will include all the student tickets sold, not the number of students who show.

    IDK. We had 48,000 for a 2-9 Chizik team closing out against Mizzou.

    Our schedule set's up pretty decently for it to be a very bipolar season even if we end up at 6-6 or 7-5

    Code:
    Sat, Aug 31     UNI              8:00 pm
    Sat, Sep 14     Iowa             6:00 pm
    Thu, Sep 26     at Tulsa         7:30 pm
    Thu, Oct 3      Texas            7:30 pm
    Sat, Oct 12     at Texas Tech    TBA
    Sat, Oct 19     at Baylor        TBA
    Sat, Oct 26     Oklahoma State   TBA
    Sat, Nov 2      at Kansas State  TBA
    Sat, Nov 9      TCU              TBA 
    Sat, Nov 16     at Oklahoma      TBA
    Sat, Nov 23     Kansas           TBA 
    Sat, Nov 30     at West Virginia TBA
    Assuming a 6-6 season we'd most likely be starting on a 3 win streak and ending on a 2 win streak, but only winning one game of the seven in the middle. Getting both Tech and Baylor on the road kind of sucks.

    If we start the season 1-3 or even 2-2 it might be until late November before we pick up another win. That would really hurt attendance.

    Doesn't Rhoads have some record of not losing more than 3 in a row?

    Re: Will we break 50K attendance every game this season?

    I think we make it easy. The first 3 games should get there no matter what. Family weekend and homecoming will get us through the next two. As for the Kansas game, if we are playing for a bowl game or more it will be no problem. If the season is in the dumper, I can see the AD running a big discounted ticket promotion to make it. Start selling 4 for $40 or something and you will get there. If we have over 40k in season tickets, plus a few thousand visitors, you don't have a lot of work to do to make it to 50k.

    A win at K-State to start November would be a great way to keep that record alive.

    I wouldn't mind this since I am taking the CycloneFanatic bus down to it.

    Yes, ISU will break 50,000 easy.

    Only question is will we hit 55,000 for every game. KU is the question.
