    Does anyone know what the attendance was yesterday and how many season tickets IU has sold. I noticed many empty seats as the second half started and as the first half ended. Just asking, no agenda other than the team needs fan support and fans who stay when things are going well.

    I’d say start “really” counting from OSU game on. Predict an 80/20 IU favored sellout next week. If IU were to win, watch things change. But even if don’t, think Penix excitement and B10 play will show better attendance this season.

    The students deserted in mass at halftime. Somewhat true on the west side but not that much. Of coursed the game was completely in hand by that point so not concerned by it.

    This town and school have never been big backers of football and never will. It would take so much winning to turn that around, I don’t think I’ll ever see it in my lifetime. Just have to accept it.

    Here is where we stack up vs our peers.

    IL vs MAC 30,654
    MD vs ACC. 33,493
    IU vs FCS. 37,784
    RU vs UMass 40,515
    MN vs FCS. 49,112
    PU vs SEC. 50,500

    It doesn't seem to matter who plays who. Fans either show up... Or don't.

    I understand your point of you however I do think you should support the players effort, time commitment, the fact that they play banged up

    Agree and my wife and I stayed for the final gun, but I don’t expect that from the students. Just what it is.

    Maryland only drew an announced 33K against a ranked opponent after putting up 79 last week? Yikes.

    IU fans haven’t learned to be bloodthirsty. You would think with as little winning as fans are accustomed to, they would savor the massacre to the end. Times have changed the evolution of people’s attention span, the distraction of sensory input accelerated at the speed of light it seems.
