I attended the Insight Bowl (Tempe AZ) in 2007, and IU traveled extremely well to that game. The attendance wasn't as robust for the Pinstripe but still respectable. The attendance for the IU/Duke Pinstripe was on a par with Wisconsin/Miami and Iowa/BC, the 2018 and 2017 Pinstripe games. Attendance was not good for the Redbox (then known as the Foster Farms) but I don't think that bowl ever draws particularly well. It's not easy to get to, and the weather isn't enticing.It is my hope the Florida bowl committees are recognizing IU has never played in a Florida bowl, has numerous players out of Florida, and a large fan base here in FL (not to mention those willing to make the trip to a warm weather bowl) who will attend.
If we're in the Gator or any Florida bowl, I have little doubt that we'll sell our allotment and have a large IU contingent.
