Before Bill Fennelly arrived at Iowa State, attendance averaged 733; now it's up to 10,034, second in the NCAA.
For the past 12 years, Iowa State has ranked among the top 10 Division I programs in attendance. This season, even after a school-worst 0-5 start in Big 12 play, Iowa State is averaging 10,034 a game, recently passing Louisville for second in NCAA Division I, behind only Tennessee. The crowd's energy makes Hilton notoriously difficult for visiting teams, as Iowa State's 229-37 home record under Fennelly reflects.
And to seriously think people were questioning him as the head coach of the Womens bb team is ridiculous. Ill take Bill as the coach of the womens team anyday. He loves to be here and has them competing against top talent every year.
An .861 home winning percantage sustained over that many years is obscene.
i love the end.. he picked up a kid on crutches and the kid didnt know who he was and asked if he knew Fred hahaha
Bill is a great guy
