    Confused w/Attendance???

    So I apologize if this has been brought up but I am in AZ and just went out to read some articles about the game on the dmreg website. It says there were only 12,000 Cyclone fans at the game yet attendance was 45K+. I find this hard to beleive as Tempe and the stadium were surrounded by Cyclones. Anybody know the true number of Cyclones that showed up?

    Tons of fans who were locals. Also, I'm wondering how they counted the 45K. Did they count 10K Minny tickets (even the ones the Big 11 covered), plus the tickets to locals in the same seats?

    I think 12K is a little low for ISU. I'd say 15-20K.

    Re: Confused w/Attendance???

    Not sure on total attendance, but I would guess we had about 20,000 there. First bowl I have ever been to, it was an awesome experience seeing Cyclone Nation travel that well. I think I will be attending every bowl we ever make from here on out. Its just too cool of a thing to miss.

    Agreed, that was a home (away from home) game.

    Re: Confused w/Attendance???

    As usual, the DMR is way off. There were easily 15,000 - 18,000 Cyclone fans there. Most of the east side of the stadium was ISU. The lower level was full, and I've heard that the upper level had a lot of folks as well. The west (Minnesota) side had a whole lot of empty seats.

    The DMR will never be accurate where ISU is concerned, except perhaps to delight in the misfortunes of players who stray. The DMR collective simply does not like ISU and will always spin things in the least favorable light. Idiots.

    Re: Confused w/Attendance???

    Let's say you could combine BSU, Minn and TCU fans...we still had more fans. I would say 17,000-20,000 fans.

    Re: Confused w/Attendance???

    Where I was sitting, about every ten rows there would be about 2 rows of locals or donating business employees...this was in the players family section which I found very confusing.

    While I'm on the subject of the family section, I was absolutely disgusted with the organization on ISU's part with getting family and friends tickets. One person manually checking names and one manually handing out tickets. We were at the stadium 2 hrs before kickoff and sat down 15 minutes before kickoff. When we got in, there was still a line with more than 150 in line. Embarrassing on ISU's part that some of these families would not be able to watch their sons run out onto the field, some for the last time.

    Chalk that one up to the accountant.

    In fairness to the DMR, Pollard did announce two days ago that ISU had sold 8,300 tickets and he expected between 11,000 and 13,000 ISU fans to be there.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: Confused w/Attendance???

    I figured the lower level of the one side probably held about 12,000 people.

    Great showing. But I really doubt if it was more than 15,000 ISU fans.

    But again, I was basing that off of the fact that it looked like 45000 people was a 'tickets sold' figure.

    It seemed like a great game for even the non clone/minny fans.

    14-13 coming down to the last drive.

    Re: Confused w/Attendance???

    Well i watched it on TV and it looked like alot of Clones were there, and it also looked like minny had a decent showing nothing close to Iowa state, but not as terrible as i expected, i thought that big of a stadium would look a little less empty but at kickoff it looked pretty full of TV if you exclude the extreme nosebleeds

    Minnesota was worse than you probably thought. Lots of people sitting on that side were just AZ locals.

    Re: Confused w/Attendance???

    Insight employs 5,000 people in Tempe. I am sure they had a great employee showing also. If half the employees came and took their family that would be a lot of people also. there had to have been at least 15,000 ISU fans there though. Not bad considering the economy.
