    Women's attendance vs. Men's attendance

    What are the odds that the women draw more attendance than the men this year??? So far, the women are averaging 10,078/home game and the men are near capacity at 14,209. After the Drake loss, I expect the men's attendance to dip and the women's to rise with every win. (Also, I know it is paid attendance that these numbers reflect but I guarantee more people's rear ends will actually be IN the seats during the women's games). Any thoughts???

    Also, I'm fairly confident that Tocarra Ross would be able to outrebound half the players on the men's team.

    Re: Women's attendance vs. Men's attendance

    I still think the men will probably out draw the women. I do think the ISU women will outdraw the Arizona State University men's team. They had a home game tonight and drew 5,888. For a town the size of Ames to average over 10,000 for women's basketball, over 14,000 for a struggling men's basketball team, and sell out a wrestling meet tells me that ISU fans are the best sports fans in the world.

    I think you're completely wrong on every single point there. Tonight was the Iowa game, with decent weather, and while the lower bowl was basically full, the balcony was practically empty. There would have to be some majorly cataclysmic events for MBB attendance to drop so far that WBB outpaced it. You're forgetting that these are Cyclone fans- most of them will keep coming to events even if we're consistently losing, because we're absurdly loyal fans.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    The men will average more than the women and it won't even be close.

    Re: Women's attendance vs. Men's attendance

    The men have more season ticket holders than the women are averaging. Bryce is right, it won't be close.

    But averaging over 10k for the women is great! Hopefully that number continues to climb.

    Re: Women's attendance vs. Men's attendance

    In the state, if it matters, Iowa State men and Iowa State women will be 1-2, in that order, in home attendance. I thought it was funny last night that UNI-Iowa men had about 7,000, ISU at Drake was about 6,000 and ISU women's attendance was nearly 13,000!

    That just goes to show that people will support a good, winning program.
