    Could be a little easier the rest of the year. The students are doing a good job of showing up so far. 5 of the next 7 home games are on Saturdays, which draws great crowds.

    I really hope this weekend will make a good draw of people. 1pm on Saturday wont hurt.

    We should have some promotions. Like the cheerleaders remove an article of clothing with every made 3. That would pack the house.

    Yeah, believe it or not, but a lot of basketball fans in Ames are focusing more on the Little Cyclones than the (Real) Cyclones

    Bad Hilton = fans watching the game.
    Good Hilton = fans participating in the game.

    I don't see much of the latter anymore for some reason, other than from Cyclone Alley.

    I thought that Hilton was very loud for the Nebraska game... If you weren't there it was pretty impressive for the first B12 game and a VERY cold night.

    Capitalize on the KU game. Should be a good crowd. Gotta make us fans feel like we're missing something if we're not there.

    Just win baby.....if the AZ Cardinals still have fans after what they have put their fans through in the past, I'd like to think we could reclaim a good home court advantage sometime soon as well. For now though, this "basketball" we play is really boring to watch. I hope that changes with more talent added in the coming years.

    The thing I don't get and I never will get is how we can have over 50,000 people come to football games but can't get 14,000 to basketball games. I know football is a more popular sport than basketball.
