    that it was the first game of the season against a team nobody knows. However there were seriously like 9 people at the Iowa basketball game. 9. Maybe 10 at the most. Cant they give those tickets away to family's who want to take a kid to a game and get some people in there. THey could at least make money off the concesions.

    Did you see the attendance at the ISU game last night?

    Not even close to what Iowa's was. Seriously it looked like morgue. Iowa State still had a crowd.

    Yeah, but in defense of the poor attendance, three games in one weekend is a little much. Had I been further away than Des Moines, I wouldn't have made all three trips to Ames this weekend. The Sunday night game was doomed for a poor showing. But you are right, the crowd was small and pretty much no one was getting into the game, including myself.

    It was a re-schedule because of the Duke game.

    The Duke game pushed this game to Sunday night.

    Probably the same guy who scheduled three games in five days to start the season. I think his name might rhyme with Shamie Follard?

    Yes, I was there. Considering it was a Sunday night after a huge weekend of Cyclone sports I didn't think it was terrible.

    I agree, but Sunday night games just are not feasible for a lot of people, including Iowa fans. They had a nice size following to Columbus this weekend; their fans had just as big of weekend. Not to call out the students at all, but that was one of the worst showing for students I think I have seen since I have been here.

    Agreed. But at the same time, I know I missed a few sunday night basketball games against the Chicago State's of the world when I was a student. The turnout was pretty good on friday, I thought. Hopefully they come out in force for the UNI game. Really looking forward to that one.

    I agree...again I was not calling anybody out. Sunday night was just a bad night to have a game. If it was not for me living in Ames and literally having nothing else to do on a cold night, I doubt I would have gone. I honestly might not have gone it the game were on TV.

    I want to retract my statement. After seeing some of the Iowa game on ESPNU last night, Iowa fans should be downright embarrassed about their basketball attendance. I think ISU Volleyball attendance is outdrawing Iowa's Men's Basketball.

    Judging by the crowd on the TV last night you probably could have walked down and sat courtside or behind the bench. Then again it would be easier to nap where no one is sitting around you...

    This image will probably sum up Iowa basketball this season

    Here's perspective...you guys (Iowa fans) booted TWO coaches out of town for not winning. So now you have a bad team with little players and probably have the label of a football only school in the coaching circles . You better hope and pray that Lick gets it turned around, I don't know of many coaches that will be wanting to take over a program that has no base, fan and player wise.

    Ok, I give up. We are guilty of the Davis one over a decade ago. Please, do tell. Who is the second one?
