    This guy is a litte off

    PowerMizzou.com - Powered Up: Hello, Big Ten, this is Missouri

    I knew I shouldn't have gone into this. Go about half way down and he starts ripping on the Clones.

    His number seem particullarly low. We brought more then 20,000 to the last Insight Bowl.

    We had more fans then KSU in Arrowhead, if anything. Not a fraction. I bet the guy wasn't even at the ******* game.

    MiSSOURI could bring as many fans to home games as they want, but that doesn't mean they'll travel well.

    They were in a rebuilding year and they've had their coach, for what 10 years? 3 different coaches the last 4 years doesn't helo a team's chances.

    rant done. I honsetly don't care which bowl game we got, whether it's Texas or Insight. I'll just let the committee decide that, but I know I'm staying away away from Mizzouri fans if we go to the Insight and they go to to Houston.

    Re: This guy is a litte off

    He is going out of his way to say it is not against Iowa State.

    Lets be honest, we would feel the exact same way if the situation were reversed.

    Re: This guy is a litte off

    hes camparing apples to oranges, our 46K is much more impressive when you consider on 48K can fit in the seats, of the 39K that attended the bowls we went to(which were not great bowls) probably 60% were cyclone fans. the bowl games that MIzzou went to were much bigger bowls which automatically draw more people, this guy is just clueless. I dont really care I would love to see ISU play anywhere.

    Tim Griffin was on the radio last week and said Mizoo brought tens of fans to the Alamo Bowl - not thousands justs 10s. It is that kind of following that gets them in this situation.

    Re: This guy is a litte off

    We put 46K in a stadium that has 43K actual seats. We averaged 3,000 people at each game that stand in a grass patch in the corner. What a ****** attendance figure.

    That last sentence is a really remarkable fact about ISU attendance. People in Iowa choosing to sit/stand on a patch of grass. That can't be common.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Actually, at Mizzou, they sit on rocks. No, I am serious. They have the same grass time situation as we do, only instead of a building between the grass parts, they have a giant M made of white rocks, which a good chuck on people choose to sit on. I don't know how that can be comfortable.


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Re: This guy is a litte off

    If you take off the Cyclone fan blinders, the guy is spot on.

    Frankly he's just pointing out the arguments which are valid about attendance and accurately stating Mizzou has the larger fan base. I don't argue with that, they are the only D1 University in the whole state, with a larger population than Iowa which splits the state's fanbase.

    His big beef is one that everyone on this board agrees with. The Big 12 sucks at taking care of the schools outside TU, TAMU, OU, and sometimes NU. Who on this board doesn't agree with that? Most other major conferences and Mizzou is picked ahead of us regardless of bowl preference.

    Before anyone tells me, yea but that's the way the Big 12 negotiated the contracts and we all knew that going into the season. Let me point out the same thing about our Television contracts. We are just as angry about our lack of being televised this year as Mizzou is angry about getting hosed for a bowl bid.

    Really, it's a good thing he's this ******. If Mizzou is fed up with the B12 bias, ISU is ****** about it as well. That's one sixth of the conference ****** off at the league office. This is the kind of outrage that starts getting the contracts to help the have nots out when they are renegotiated. Because of this little bowl fiasco a third of the Norths fan bases message boards are now making arguments for wanting to leave the conference. One team that isn't TU or OU couldn't get contracts to change, but if 3 or 4 schools ADs come out and say our contracts are BS and we're done, the bargaining power goes up in a hurry.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.
