    Tonight's Attendance

    Does anyone know what the actual attendance was tonight? The box score had it at 54k+, but there is obviously no way. All in all, I was blown away by how many showed up. The students had a great showing too!

    I was on the west side and would say the the east side was about half full. The only thing that made it look bad was the students, but like you, I thought their attendance was decent for it being break. I would guess the west side looked better than half. I estimate around 30,000.

    Re: Tonight's Attendance

    Have to say....damned impressive showing. 1 win clone team, bad opponent, coldest game since the ice age. Still had 25-30k show up. Not sure many other fan bases could do that (except Iowa:) Great fan support in the state of Iowa.

    Re: Tonight's Attendance

    I have to say, seeing those 25-30k fans in the stands tonight made me proud to be a Cyclone. USC could only muster 25-30k fans at the Utah game on Oct 26th, with a half off Groupon and a metro area 20 times the size!!!

    Well done Cyclones, Well done!

    Re: Tonight's Attendance

    Tonight demonstrates that we have some of the toughest and most supportive fans in the nation. It was fun to be part of the coldest game in history. Good job Iowa State fans.

    I was impressed too. Especially by the dude who showed up wearing an orange t-shirt and cowboy hat a section over from us. A flipping t-shirt!

    Re: Tonight's Attendance

    I'd agree with a 25K estimate for kickoff - I was sitting on the west side and the east side looked half full or a little less when the game started.

    After halftime, though, I'd put it at about 10-12K. Looked like more than half of those who where there left.

    The second half "Cyclone Power" chant was impressive considering attendance!

    Re: Tonight's Attendance

    We can say we attended probably the hottest (UNI) and the coldest game (KU) of the 2013 season

    Re: Tonight's Attendance

    That was one of the most fun football games I have been to. Some historical significance, an *** whipping & it wasn't as cold as it looked. NO wind made it very bearable. Pretty impressed with the crowd for all things considered. Cyclone Power chant was pretty good in the 4th.

    Re: Tonight's Attendance

    I'd point out that the student section only looked smaller due to their being packed together without empty seats. If you spread them out like every other section and they were probably on par with the % attendance of the rest the stadium. Everyone was a little late arriving I was concerned during pregame that it wasn't going to fill in that well, but it ended up pretty solid. Most impressive part to me was how many stayed all the way through. Which was great because those seniors deserved it.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    Re: Tonight's Attendance

    You need to apply the cold weather attendance conversion factor table which for this game were the temp went below 10 degrees is 2X. 27,000 in the stands each count as 2 so attendance was 54,000. If we had 35,000 in the stands it would have been 70,000 and probable trouble with fire marshals and building code guys.

    Re: Tonight's Attendance

    Definite kudos to those who attended (and were more brave than I, who watched at home). I did not think there would be as many as there were in the stands. Cyclone fans continue to prove how deep their loyalty runs. Congrats to the team for picking up a nice win and making the effort more than worthwhile for those who saw it in person!


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