    Easily more Cyclones.

    I believe there are over 8k ISU Alumni in the Kansas City area.

    Re: UMKC

    UMKC has 16k student, including 10k undergrad.

    No reason/excuse they can't muster up support.

    Related question - how much does the campus life impact ones commitment to a school? Why do "campus" schools have better fan bases than "commuter" schools?

    If you've ever been at one of these commuter schools you'd know in a heartbeat. Everything is disjointed and students don't have anything to rally around in terms of "school spirit/pride". I've seen a number of campuses around the country. I'm a homer, but ISU's campus is my favorite.

    And I was at the UMKC game in KC last year. Definitely more ISU fans there. Pretty sure that a lot of the people cheering for UMKC really came to root against us more than for UMKC.

    My mom got her degree there as an adult and now works for the University. She didn't come.

    Whoever made that schedule, is trying very hard to get their coach fired

    don't know if they can lose by much worse unless Louisville doesn't sub and runs up the Score

    This was UMKC walking into Hilton.


    And probably what it will be like at Louisville.

    Actually there is a really good reason why they don't have support... They are horrifically bad.

    Re: UMKC

    Still, wouldn't you expect some friends and family to come. If nothing else, they get an opportunity to see "their guy" maybe put 20 points on a ranked Big 12 team.

    Probably just trying to fund the rest of the athletic department by picking up a huge number of paydays.

    I could see the guys from our seats. They were really funny, but without overdoing it. Kudos.

    Wow, the WAC has really fallen. Chicago St. is also there now. Insane.

    Beating a WAC team is far better then saying we beat one of the worst teams from the Summit League. I'll take it.
