    It looked picture perfect on TV. Clear skies, but an obvious crispness in the air.

    Packed house.

    Best fans in the nation. Attendance to wins (losses) ratio has to crush the rest of D1.

    Great job fans. Not many other programs get packed houses for 1-8 teams. Sounded great on TV.

    EASILY! No question about it. Most BCS schools would be lucky to get 25k to watch a team like this.

    These fans deserve so much more. I love the support, but sometimes I kind of wonder what kind of message that sends too.

    JP will be cinched up tight next year when ticket sales dry up for this horrible CPR disaster.

    Yeah. I think next year will be a different story, but it was a nice showing today, regardless.

    You can't continue to ask the fans to do their part over and over again. Eventually, those fans are gonna tailgate and that's it.

    Excellent attendance at literally any other school 10,000-20,000 of those fans eat their tix and stay home.

    (The sellout was because people bought their TCU tix back when the UNI and UI games were costing 100-200 for hillsides, OSU was sold out, and obviously Texas being a weeknight was unattendable for some.)

    Perfect example is TCU, who just got their 4th win today, has had some great teams in the past, has a newly renovated stadium, and plays in front of no one at home.

    On the radio at halftime walters said a TCU player at halftime came up to him (or bruns maybe) in the tunnel and said "you guy have unreal fans, its pretty cool". Obviously implying they wernt expecting a full house for a 1-7 team.

    I think we can all agree that the fanbase deserves better than it's currently getting.
