Normally Pistol Pete (the mascot) wears a cowboy outfit. Yesterday for some reason he wore a camo jumpsuit which looked really odd with his head. But yeah, he does look a Team America puppet.
I too was surprised by such a sparse crowd for a top 10 team, and wondered if they had just "over-built" their stadium. I had forgotten about the ridiculous ticket prices they have...
between ALL of those empty seats and Iowa losing..... it made the day... .bearable, barely.
Did anyone notice hot hot OSU's female fan base is overall. If you have ever been to Stillwater, you know what I mean.
Really surprised actually. I know nothing beats gameday in Ames on a fall day, especially with how great or weather has been. If ISU ever gets in the top 10 again, I guarantee we will be looking at 50k plus crowds easy. Yes I know our listed cap. is around 47k.
Going to have to go with ISUAlum on this one...
I mean there were other factors that kept me away from OSU this year, but given that it will be 4 years before we play at OSU again, and Superfan and I are working on hitting all 12 stadiums, you'd think we'd make an effort.
Saw $85 for a ticket and decided to hit other games insted... and I mean we're willing to pay a bit more for a weekend of football than the average Joe that would be buying the cheap tickets (given how far we'd be traveling to go there...)
We raised prices this year and have about 10% less attendance than we did in 2007.
They need all the money they can get. Turns out , all that money that T. Boone "gave" them ($165million or so) was reinvested in his company and is now worthless. OK State will not be building much unless the stock price goes up a little bit. Most unbelievable thing I've heard in a long time. I think they are trying to keep it on the "down low."
