    And you thought Iowa's attendance is bad

    Mizzou drew just over 4100 on Saturday.

    They showed a clip on the news and it looked more like a practice than a game.

    In their defense, they were under a winter storm warning. They got around six inches of snow with some wind. They aren't quite as adept at handling that as we are.

    It seems like their crowds are pretty weak, anyway, compared to the home court advantage they once had at the Hearnes Center.

    Since they built their new arena they have only had three sellout and that was the three times KU has played there. Every game I have seen of theirs there are open seats all over.

    I went to the ISU game there last year. I wasn't impressed with the amosphere. I was impressed with WJ's tip-in however.

    I loved going to games at the Hearns Center. I have not been to the new WalMart Arena. If you ever read Tigerboard.com, you will see lots of complaints about the atmosphere the new place. Just goes to show that you don't always win when you sell out to big corporate money.

    I've never seen an arena as empty as that one looked. ISU has great basketball attendance.

    Re: And you thought Iowa's attendance is bad

    Looks like they followed up their 4100 effort with 5,047 last night although some on Tigerboard are claiming even that was a major stretch. Must be the world's worst snowstorm.

    Re: And you thought Iowa's attendance is bad

    I think attendance at DI college basketball games are down in lots of places for two reasons.

    1. Prices have went way up epsecially if you include donations etc.

    2. Teams have soft schedules that don't inteest people at the higher price.
