Let's see if they show up and then stay the whole game this weekend. Last few games I bet 1/2 of the ones in the upper deck did not return after half time and I think it was the Nebraska game that about 3/4 of them were gone by the start of the 4th quarter. I love our students but been disappointed with the decreasing attendance as the season has gone on.
They certainly haven't been the only ones. That's been a common theme across the fanbase this year.
Overall, I think this has been one of the better season for student body representations at JTS.
I'm slightly envious - when I went to ISU from 89-94, there really was no student section. More or less, made our own.
I think part of it is when the students do represent well they are loud and very noticable which is why when 1/2 of them don't come back after half time everyone takes notice because there all the sudden is a noticable void in that part of the stadium.
I dunno about that. After all, if someone isn't going to Saturday's game, either "because of the weather", or "because we aren't very good", either one seems to fit the definition of "fair weather fans".
So maybe it's D) They know the definition of "fair weather". And 25 degrees ain't it.
Besides which, I'd like to know your definition of "without **** in return". I'd say several bowl trips, a Heisman contender, Seneca Wallace, and a bunch of other things are a whole lot more than "****" (I used asterisks, myself). Not to mention just what this young offense looks like it's going to be, not only next year, but the rest of this season.
I wasn't making excuses for anyone not being, there, just standing up for the fan base in general. I'll be there cheering my butt off. Several bowl trips and two heisman contenders in school history is the equivalent of ****, imo. We haven't done much ever, and its hard to argue that. That alone demonstrates how great of a fan base we have, and whenever that is questioned on this board, I get defensive...
In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
