    After halftime attendance

    I have a worrying thought. I know that many people go back to the tailgate during halftime (no problem with that) but what bothers me is the attendance in the stadium right after halftime. Many empty seats, it was the most noticible on the east side in the middle of the field on the lower deck. I am not sure if it affects the players after halftime but the energy level sure seemed to be lacking until about 3 minutes left in the 3rd quarter.

    I can't speak for others, but I watched the halftime show from my seat. W/ about 2 min left in the halftime, I went to the restroom and then just wanted to walk a bit on the concourse. The lines to the concession stands (this and the food choices and locations probably needs its own thread) were still really long. I simply wanted to stretch my legs, but the continuing long lines made that difficult. I was not in my seat at the beginning of the half, but shortly thereafter. I sit lower level, west side, and noticed the same empty seats you mentioned. As I recall, that's nothing really new from past years.

    Re: After halftime attendance

    Watching on TV, all I could see was the east side, but from about 8 minutes remaining in the second quarter and onward, the lower-level seats between the 40s looked very sparse.

    Re: After halftime attendance

    It's a Thursday night game. People may have needed to get home to get the kids to school or to go to work the next morning. I'm not real fond of Thursday games for many reasons.

    Re: After halftime attendance

    I've seen several complaints about food in other threads? And Ms3r4ISU talking about long, long lines.

    What gives?

    We lost probably a good 700 people at half.

    Re: After halftime attendance

    Can anyone clarify the re-entry policy? The second half kick hadn't happened yet and they already shut the South gates so everyone had to walk to the east or west side to get back in. Had it not been for this I would have most likely been in my seat for the kick.

    Players should be worried about the game, not the fans.

    Re: After halftime attendance

    Welcome to Iowa State football, it takes people most of the 3rd quarter to find their seats again, if they come back at all.

    Re: After halftime attendance

    I for one think there should be no leaving at half. We walked out had a beer and the 2nd half started again. I went back in but alot of people on our bus didnt.

    Re: After halftime attendance

    It was a Thursday night game, it was cooling down so people in t-shirts were getting cold, and we were playing Northern Illionis not exactly a powerhouse. Once UNI gets here the place will stay full.

    Players sometime feed off the fans though.

    I just want to make sure we are clear, that we are talking about something that happens at every school, and this isn't specific to ISU.
