Re: Sporting News
Yeah, and they are calling for a high of 48 with a 30 percent chance of rain mixed with snow on Saturday. I would be shocked to see the paid attendance over 40K, and would be even more shocked to see any more then 35K inside the game.
Re: Sporting News
I'll probably be one of those not going to the game on Saturday. I have never missed so much of Cyclone football against my will; Nebraska, I was at a wedding. The 4th quarter of Texas was not on TV, K-State was not on TV, and the college of design was dumb enough to schedule a study-abroad orientation during a home football game. From the looks of it, the next time I'll be able to see Cyclone football is at the Missouri game.
