    ISU in BCS game

    Ok, I'm a little bored and was wondering something after watching the bowl games...

    If we made a BCS bowl or some higher level bowl game (i.e. cotton bowl) how many tickets do you think we would sell for the game?

    I think if the school organized a massive transportation effort, we could get a lot of people to go.

    Re: ISU in BCS game

    I don't know about 40,000 that is assumming 4/5 of our normal ticket holders will pay for the trip to go. I think I would say closer to 20k maybe 30k but I would go with the lower.

    But you'd also get alumni who are in other states who aren't able to purchase season tickets.

    Re: ISU in BCS game

    Insight.com bowl + 10% = BCS showing. So ~40K and that would be a lower number imo.

    Re: ISU in BCS game

    We'd get more than we did for the Insight Bowl I'm sure. I mean, how often does ISU get to a BCS bowl game? No brainer that a lot more people would go to that just because it might be awhile before we did it again.

    Re: ISU in BCS game

    I dunno, we could not even get 35k to see ISU have a chance at the big12 championship, so I say 30k would be it.

    I go ballistic when squakies bring that up. And I like Brian too much to go into my rant on the subject.

    I'd say it all really depends on the weather.

    With hell having frozen over I can't imagine that traveling conditions would be all that good.

    The inflated reports would be 40k....in reality it would be closer to 30k.
