    Lack of WVU Fan Support

    This game could have gone either way. The lack of WVU crowd support was obvious. Let this be a lesson to us. Great Cyclone victory!

    Re: Lack of WVU Fan Support

    ISU fan support has been incredible this year, considering how things have been going. These last two games create both hope and momentum going into next season. Hopefully that also means continued strong fan support.

    Good fans show up every week when teams are winning, GREAT fans show up every week regardless.

    I agree completely. Their stadium was cavernous. No Sweet Caroline to see them through, and no Teletubbies to heat up the crowd like we have at the Jack!!

    I don't know. Students on break, terrible team, playing a team they don't care about. I wouldn't judge their fan base from this one.

    Our students were gone last week and it was 3 degrees. We still had a lot more than WVU tonight. They are not supporting WVU like we are ISU.

    I think they expected to do better in the Big12 than they have. Already talking about canning Holgerson.

    Re: Lack of WVU Fan Support

    I've gotta be honest here. IMO, WVU fans can support us all that the need to....

    Re: Lack of WVU Fan Support

    I don't think many at WVU understood what moving to the Big 12 from the Big East really meant, and what a grind it is for a football team. They will adjust. It's easy to forget that hat team was ranked #5 in the preseason and picked by several publications to win the Big 12 outright a year ago. Quite an ego check.

    But I like the 'Eers and hope they adapt and thrive against everybody else.
