ISU was 4th in the nation in attendance last year. Of course we had Iowa at home, but also had a couple of really crappy teams. Pretty good. Hope we can grow on that next year.

I don’t know if that’s impressive or sad for attendance across the board given how horrendous the home slate was last year (outside of TOE like you noted).

Does anyone have figures about what attendance was back in the 1970s when wrestling was at or close to its best at ISU? Hilton was new and people really supported wrestling then. Seems to me that lots of meets had around 12-14k back then. And I think wrestling had bigger crowds than MBB did.

Kinda surprised how crappy the draws are at some of those BIG schools.

It's way "over-remembered."

16 duals total over 10,000, and 12 of those were pre-1990.
