    Randy Peterson just updated his blog. He's got some interesting MBB attendance numbers in it.

    Re: Register: Some attendance numbers

    I wish they tracked actual attendance. It makes sense why the sales went up from 2009 to 2010, but they should honestly be tracking per-game wise. We might see an interesting trend across the years.

    Re: Register: Some attendance numbers

    gotta wave the BS flag at this
    Athletic department officials also said Monday they don’t track “actual” crowd sizes at Hilton.
    They may not *release* those numbers , but theres no way they dont know how many tickets were scanned at the doors.

    Right, I mean I wish they'd make them public although that may look bad on us. I'd expect to see something like this the last few years:


    Home attendance increases as the non-conference season goes on and by the Big 12 home opener, it's at its peak until we lose two conference games to which it starts decreasing with a short increase for senior night.

    Doubt it. Its senior night. Can't really be much worse than Nebraska and Okie State the week before.

    I doubt we'll even make the bottom 50, before Orr, attendance was drastically worse than today even on a bad night. (That's from stories I'm told anyway, couldn't find actual numbers anywhere)

    Don't think it really matters, I think it would have been a decent turnout if they would have won Saturday.

    Re: Register: Some attendance numbers

    When did they make the switch from take-and-tear tickets to scanning tickets? I would be interested to see what the database looks like regarding attendance.

    Re: Register: Some attendance numbers

    When you enter Hilton your ticket stub is scanned. Iowa State has the ability to track "actual attendance" the same way they do at the University of Iowa. For example: The Iowa State Athletic Department sent to all season ticket holders that actually showed-up for 80% of the non-conference games this year a voucher for $10 at the consession stands. I know because I received one. My 5-year old and I enjoyed the free food at the last game. Saying they don't track actual attendance may be a little disingenuous.
