    If KU can't get fans to their own stadium why would we expect them to get them to ours

    Unless the ticket ordering system is broken online, right now you cant find a pair of tickets in the actual stands for season tickets.

    As long as we're playing hard and staying close in games whether win or lose, our fans reward effort.
    This. For the most part ISU fans are loyal regardless of the W/L record. On field performance aside ISU football games are an experience that is far more then just the game and all the activities that surround the game are a big draw for many fans.

    I think most fans have a good understanding that they can play a big role in moving the program forward (season tickets, donations, etc...) and that includes making sure that stadium is full. Fan support for the program is at an all-time high and I don't see even a poor season hurting that momentum.

    I'd be surprised to see a game under 53k.

    I just have bad memories of people wearing paper sacks on their heads towards the end of Dan's time. You are right though, it has changed since then. Something drastic is going to have to happen to keep us from getting this.

    I don't know if it would do it this season due to how many tickets have already been sold, but a 2-10 Dan-esque rebuilding season would probably do the job for next year.

    Only question is will we hit 55,000 for every game. KU is the question.
    100% agree.

    I think KU is the only questionable game.

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

    I'm assuming a 4 win season and still over 50,000 Cyclone Fans packing the stadium

    It's a new era of fan support!

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

    For the last three years there has been an ambiance of every game is winnable. That needs to persist for ticket sales to stay above 50K. Losing to Tulsa and Iowa (both expected wins) wouldn't leave fans expecting success in the big 12. To me that is the key for this year ticket sales. We can swoon in the end and get there but we can't in non-conferance. Keep in mind the ag economy isn't as hot as the last two years which impacts the disposible income in a significant part of the fan base.

    And if the stadium has collapsed into rubble, attendance will also drop off. Your point?
