ISU fans don't always have great attendance because A) it's a smaller fan base, and B) some people put things like job and family ahead of attending sporting events. I know that's a shocking thought to a Nebraskan, but it's reality.
Hawk fans weren't filling Kinnick just a couple years ago. Sure, the University said they were, but there were plenty of empty seats. Prior to Hayden Fry, I remember my grandpa talking about going to Kinnick and having run of the place with about 10K in the place.
ISU was miserable for 2 decades in the 80's and 90's. How many fan bases would fill the stadium for 20 years of crap? I guarantee that if that happened to Nebraska, Memorial would be a wasteland. And I mean 20 years of actual crap. 3 win seasons. Not 20 years of lower tier bowls.
In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
