    Predict crowd attendance

    With the weather being crappy on thursday and probably quite a few fans mad at the first two home games how do you think attendance will be? Jack Trice has been packed but I think this will be the first game in awhile that we see Jack Trice not too packed.

    I'm guessing announced attendance will be around 52k or so with an actual attendance of 45k.

    I'm think you are right on with announced attendance but if the weather actually is bad I would guess actual attendance will be more like 40k. If the rain holds off to Friday morning then 45k sounds about right.

    Re: Predict crowd attendance

    If either of you two are close to being correct then that is sad. The ISU fan base should be better than that no matter the weather! Its a NATIONALLY TELEVISED GAME ON THURSDAY, AGAINST TEXAS! If ISU wants to raise its national presence then the fans better turn out like I plan to so that the stadium looks full and that as fan we give a crap. If below 50K (again for Texas!) then why would anyone else care much for the program?

    I know we all think it is ridiculous but the casual fan doesn't think like us. My girlfriend told me today she wanted to watch the game on tv if the weather is bad. Because it is on national television. I will now continue to make fun of her all week.

    I will be there with the least amount of tailgate hours in me. Like, ever! So I will hit it hard and fast, just AW will.

    Announced - 53,400, actual - 48,500

Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    Exactly. Weak-***** that won't come out in the rain are not wanted.

    SIX DAYS. SIX. SIX DAYS.

    Did you catch that? Six. That's how many days this year your team is asking you to get out and support them. SIX DAYS.

    How many days did you spend binge watching Breaking Bad or Arrested Development? How many days will you waste away laying on the couch doing nothing?

    SIX DAYS. Get your *** in the stands and make some ******* noise.

    Sounds to me like you need a new girlfriend.

    my dad is 68 and has never been to an ISU game and he's coming down for it. If he can make it then you surely can, too.

    Re: Predict crowd attendance

    before the season even started JP said there were less than 1500 tickets remaining for the Texas game...as for actual attendance it all depends on weather.

    Re: Predict crowd attendance

    55,000+ tickets sold. Maybe only 50,000 and change in the stadium if poor weather. But good night, this stadium is now packed beyond capacity. We have more than enough people on the hills to fill in the empty seats.

    If you look on the ticket website it looks like Texas returned a large number of tickets in the visitors section.

    Re: Predict crowd attendance

    I have my Hawkeye brother, who will be wearing ISU gear coming, along with his gf, son, and my father coming down. That's 4 extra I'm bringing that would normally not come to a game.

    Shouldn't be too hard I would think to get 50,000

    Does Arrested development rain on me? Does it break my heart? How about cause me to throw things, yell at children, or kick my dog?

    Not that Cyclone football does any of those. I was just asking.

    Thanks to national networks like FS1, the 'nationally televised' thing isnt all that special anymore.

    And there arent many fanbases that wont see attendance decline when they are 1-2, have lost 6 of the last 7 home games, and have crappy weather roll in.
