    Hilton on the brink of turning into CHA mortuary?

    Attendance was a farce Saturday, and i saw EMT personnel randomly going aisle to aisle checking for pulses.

    Sadly.... he has a point. I think there will be more spirit for the Drake game... but attendance will again suffer (snowstorm).

    Play decent competition, win games & don't have a MVC look and feel to the team and things will change...

    The fact that it was the opening of shotgun deer season doesn't help any.

    There were more people in our section than there has been.

    Don't forget that there are a lot of Christmas events happening too. I barely made it back in time from one.

    Re: Hilton on the brink of turning into CHA mortuary?

    I was disappointed with the attendance too. LOTS of empty parque seats, less than 1/2 of the balcony full. 1/2 of the student section was empty.

    And the atmposphere had a exhibition game feel to it.

    Re: Hilton on the brink of turning into CHA mortuary?

    The team we were playing is arguably the worst BCS conference basketball team in the nation, deer season opened, weather, unsure of our own team, etc. Things will most certainly liven up for upcoming games.


    Go Cyclones!!

    As far as a MVC look and feel, Hoiberg, Beechum, Meyer, Michalik and Jacy Holloway had a MVC look and feel, too, but crowds were better then. We need to win a couple meaningful games, and crowds will get better.

    Re: Hilton on the brink of turning into CHA mortuary?

    I am sure things we will liven up once we start playing better competition. That being said, the same people that don't want to go out in the weather, miss deer season, ect. to go to the game will be the same people that are whining when if we don't get Harrison Barnes or other recruits. Everyone bawking at why he would leave Ames to go to Duke or NC...just look at their crows EVERY GAME. We need to have people in seats every game, foremost to support the team we have on the floor, and also if for no other reason to try to sell our program to the upper level recruits we are dying to see McD bring in.

    Re: Hilton on the brink of turning into CHA mortuary?

    Whats the problem? According to the official stats published on the Cyclones website we had 13,668 in attendance (actual attendance was 7,000 maximum). We need some more ***** in the seats!

    By the way, how many deer hunters are there in the 6000-7000 seats that were paid but not filled?

    Re: Hilton on the brink of turning into CHA mortuary?

    I was really pleased last Saturday. The students showed up really well. Thats the most Ive seen in CA in a LONG time.

    Fact is... winning brings crowds.

    Go back to the Tinsley/Fizer season. It took our crowds a long time to catch on to their success too.

    Re: Hilton on the brink of turning into CHA mortuary?

    winning fixes everything people. get some QUALITY wins, not just wins, and the people will come. We have been mediocre for a LONG time now...it takes time to get people interested again when they got burned in the past.
