    Any guesses? It'd be nice to finally see a PACKED gym in Iowa this year. All four schools are struggling this season. Iowa just posted 10,239 for the Wisconsin game. :confused:

    I gotta think that with a raucous crowd, the Cyclones have a real shot in this one. Like most young teams, ISU is a completely different team at home.

    What he said..
    Everything looking full, with a few sparse rows on the balcony ends.

    Hopefully that's not the same as a proclaimed "sellout" at Kinnick Stadium.

    Hopefully not, but at least we don't have to give free tickets to friends for mens basketball.:biglaugh:

    It's a great idea. The U of I needs to do things like this to get fans back into the knitting factory. As you saw tonight, the student section still wasn't anywhere near being full.

    Attendance is down all over the country and in places where the BB program is dormant (Iowa City), athletic departments need to be creative...AND giving.

    Not true, I don't watch Iowa too much, usually only one or two games a year. :wink:I was actually attending the ISU vs. Mizzou game tonight. Yeah it is a good idea, ISU actually passed out a voucher thing to students that were at the womens game tonight to bring a friend or use for a free ticket to a womens game.

    I will be making my first trip to Hilton this year on Saturday and I would love to see it packed. When I was in school about 5 years ago we waited outside of Hilton for an hour or so before it opened then sprinted to the front row, one season we had every home game in the front row. Do you college kids still do that? I loved it.

    Last year the tickets sold was 13624, I highly doubt it's more than that.

    There will be a minimum of 2 people (maybe as many as 4) dressed in KU garb sitting in the courtside seats.
