    Well, we're averaging 12269 people per game in basketball, and that's with two games at about 9900. That amount would have had us at #24 last year for highest attendance, and that's not counting the big 12 games which are always a bigger draw.

    Something good for people to think about.

    Um....how can I say this...

    I've been embarrassed by our attendance so far. For all of the games except Drake - I could see it and somewhat expect it.

    But yesterday, there were far, far too many seats empty.

    Pre-conference attendance is always bad and always will be. Just not enough diehards to fill the place. Drake hasn't been as big a name as UNI lately in the state so the "on the fence" fans probably didn't go like they would of had UNI been in Ames this year.

    22... I know you've never been an ISU basketball season ticket holder before this, but let me tell you, the attendance for these early games have been absolutely outstanding compared to the past. I know it's a sad commentary, but it's the way it is.

    Last year, at least twice, there were games where everybody in the upper deck was invited down to the parquet, and everybody went, and it was still pretty empty down there.

    I was at a couple games like that this year - people invited down and still the lower level didn't look full.

    I give everyone a complete pass for all the games except Drake. I thought yesterday Hilton would be rockin'.

    It wasn't.

    No, trust me... I was at a few games last year where there was literally nobody in the upper deck. I mean I would have been shocked if there were 3000 people there. It was dang near dead empty. It really could be much worse from what I've seen this year.

    I think that was after Iona, which was a pretty crippling loss coupled with the Kansas thing. I was at both games by the way.

    People are invited down when there are no students.

    Gotcha.

    I just expected more from the fans yesterday, to support their one-loss team taking on a in-state rival.
