    Is it Possible?

    For the KC Chiefs to back out of the agreement for next years game and K-State to get their home game back? It sounds like the attendance projections are low, really low. I have even heard they are basically giving tickets away in KC. We know that Snyder doesn't want to give up a home game. So, could we be looking at giving up a home game and not getting a neutral site game in return?

    Not if it's already contracted without paying a steep price generally.

    Re: Is it Possible?

    I don't think that that would happen

    I think that if they did give it up, we would have the home game. Giving K-state the home game would wreck havoc on the entire big 12, because all of a sudden they would have 5 Big 12 home games and we would have 3.

    We're the "road" team next year. It won't affect our number of home games. We'll still have Texas Tech, Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska at home. We gave up our home game this season to play down there and they're doing the same next year.

    What are the attendance projections? Seems like we have a good following going...

    There is no way Kansas State has that many fans.

    On a serious note, I really do doubt that many tickets were sold so I'd request a source.

    Considering you can still get almost the exact same seats on K-State's side as you can on Iowa State's side, I doubt this. Selling 30k would mean their allotment is gone, which is clearly not the case.

    Re: Is it Possible?

    Not that this is any indicator of attendance or anything, but I was surprised by how many people I knew were actually going. A lot of people I thought would never go decided to make the trip.

    I'll be there for sure. It's my first trip to Arrowhead and I'm looking forward to it!

    Re: Is it Possible?

    IF we do win 6 games this year, a poor attendance showing in KC could cause a bowl selection committee to give the nod to someone else. We need to show up in KC and show anyone who is watching that the Cyclones have strong support and travel well.

    Yesterday they projected 35k for the game.

    Either way...doesn't look like it is going to be above 40k.

    Re: Is it Possible?

    I'd be surprised if there is not 40K tickets sold. Both schools will have a limited amount of winnable conference games and this is winnable for either team.
