    KU/Mizzou making us look pathetic

    Right now there are roughly 70,000 people at Arrowhead Stadium for the Border Showdown; We need to make it a goal to get at least 50,000 to 55,000 in Arrowhead Stadium (25k for each) so we don't look like fools compared to Missouri and Kansas. I know this is a much bigger matchup, but I really want to see more people in Kansas City for Farmageddon 2010 next year.

    To be fair, coming in it looked like a battle for fifth place in the North, not a potential North title matchup.

    Re: KU/Mizzou making us look pathetic

    Agreed. Hopefully both teams will show a lot of promise early next year after doing much better than expected this year, and possibly could draw a better crowd. I was at the KSU-ISU game and was disappointed how many fans that weren't there.

    Hm... lets see... a bitter rivalry that has spanned forever and ever at the end of the year.. or an early season matchup of two teams that bottomed out in the big 12 last year. We brought just as many as KSU, and they're a bit closer

    Also, Arrowhead is less then 1.5 hours from both locations and it helps when this rivalry is one the oldest in the country.

    Also, It's not like a group of Ames Farmers went into Manhatten and slaughtered 300 people, which makes this rivalry much more intense.

    Re: KU/Mizzou making us look pathetic

    I went to ISU-KSU, and I think the thing that most surprised me was that it was all KSU or ISU fans. It seemed like there was very few "casual" football fans. I don't know if they offered tickets to Chiefs season ticket holders, but believe they have done that in the past for KU-MU. There is a lot of corporate interest in the KU-MU game by KC companies also that buy a lot of tickets.

    Re: KU/Mizzou making us look pathetic

    1. Kansas has a 45 minute drive. Missouri has a two hour drive. Both teams are much closer than ISU and KSU, and are well represented in the KC metro.

    2. KU and MU are rivals. ISU and KSU are not (yet..).

    3. Both teams have had more recent success than ISU or KSU.

    That's why they can draw 70,000 into Arrowhead. While I was hoping we could get 50,000 fans total in Arrowhead for our game, considering that nobody expected ISU or KSU to be very competitive this season and the economy is in the crapper... we didn't do too bad.

    Next year I think we will get around 50,000 total.

    Re: KU/Mizzou making us look pathetic

    If there was a 70,000 seat stadium in Des Moines, do you think ISU and Iowa would put more people in it for a game than Nebraska and Mizzou? That's what we're talking about here.

    The difference is Geography, plain and simple. There are hundreds of thousands of KU and MU fans just in the KC metro area.
