    There are many more than that. There are billions of people on the planet.

    Why would anyone who matters care?

    There was no buzz surrounding the program leading up to that game despite a 7-3 record and that's because the team didn't have the type of win that forces the casual fan to take notice. There's not enough die hard fans like us to fill the place, we need the casual fan. Sure weather was a factor but the main factor was that there was zero reason to be excited or proud of the season up to that point.

    Considering the weather and game I thought it was fairly well attended... at the start at least.

    It got nasty cold after a while.

    Spoofin is the flat out dumbest poster on GH. He'll argue anything just to argue. No reasoning at all. The idea that the early season PSU and Iowa losses didn't affect attendance the rest of the season is absurd.

    Great post 100% agree. You have to be a salesperson in today's world of college athletics and entitled young adults.

    No I'm not. No I won't. :-)

    Plus, I just said it wasn't a "direct effect" as in prices, weather, and opponent all had bigger factors than early season losses to PSU and Iowa. Pretty dumb reasoning, huh?
