    Expecting a sparse crowd?

    I know alot of folks with tickets that aren't going today. I'm afraid the crowd will easily be our worst of the year even though it's Homecoming.

    The weather is going to be perfect, so I say it'll be a stronger crowd than expected.

    Hope so, but these are folks that live in the DSM area and for whatever reason are not going. I think the night game has alot to do with it. Gonna get chilly in the evening vs. a beautiful afternoon.

    This will be the first game I have missed in 5 years. Stupid flu.

    That's what I was going to say - supposed to be a nice day, but as soon as the sun goes down it's going to get cold.

    Nope, the entire clan has the plague at our house, so I think we are going to all skip the game tonight. Sucks.

    Yeah, but if they're wearing Iowa gear and cheering for aTm they don't count.

    The ones I know are actually a bit more classy then that (I know, shocking). They are going just to tailgate and see a college football game. Same reason I almost went to the Iowa vs. Northwestern game.

    Re: Expecting a sparse crowd?

    I hope the crowd isn't sparse, but all I really care about is the chance to cheer for something similar to this:

    That's good to hear, I know they DO exist. My cousin is a hawkeye fan but came to the SDSU game on Thursday night and stopped by our tailgate, wearing neutral gear.
