    Pollard....11,000 est crowd for ISU?

    This was from the Tempe Coaches Show last night on the radio...which was very good BTW. But he said ISU has sold about 8,300 through ISU and he thinks about another 3k through other markets.

    Is that a good number? Many thought 15k....

    Aren't they usually right on these estimates?

    I know several people who have gone through stubhub, which I hear had the best prices.

    I certainly hope we can get at least 15,000. We need a good showing tomorrow to keep our rep up.

    I always thought the expectations were pretty high in this economy.

    it will be extremely sad if ISU only brings 11K-ish and two tour buses full of minny fans show up. They probably will tell the camera guys to avoid showing the stands at all costs!

    Pollard also said that the Insight people are expecting 45K+ to the game.

    These numbers aren't adding up....

    My parents took my little brother to the DSM airport yesterday morning, and when they got back they said that the place was packed with people sporting ISU gear heading to the game.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    I couldn't care less about Minnesota and how many people they bring. I only care about ISU, and based on what we heard at the beginning, 11K total is bad.

    8,300 (sold through ISU)
    +3,000 (sold through other outlets)
    +1,000 (minnesota fans)

    Re: Pollard....11,000 est crowd for ISU?

    I would be surprised if only 3,000 bought tickets through other avenues. How would Pollard have any idea about that anyways?

    Re: Pollard....11,000 est crowd for ISU?

    I think 8300 sold through ISU is pretty good considering that it is cheaper to go through the bowl game itself or through something like stub hub. I still think that ISU brings 15000 people. I think that people want to go to this game badly but it was expensive so they went for the cheapest tickets possible, which is why ISU hasnt sold its tickets.
