Nice outcome in Terre Haute with Missouri State pounding ISU. I would say impressive road win, but there couldn't have been 1,000 there. Maybe Todd Golden should look closer to home before he takes swipes at our crowds.

A win tomorrow puts us back into a 3 way tie with them.

Attendance was listed as 4040. Now we need the Aces to do their part tonight.

If that was 4040, then we should have about 13K tonight. Unless they all left in the 1st half, which I didn't see, then that may be the biggest stretch of attendance numbers in the league.

I was thinking the same thing! Every time I see ISU play up there, I think there's no more than 1,000 people in the stands.

Granted...we've been known to do some inflation ourselves

Tom, we do inflation every game. We have always reported the number of tickets sold, not how many people are in the stands.

All schools inflate, but I have never seen a difference like that. What else could possibly going on in Terre Haute to cause all those purchased tickets to not show? Was there any weather issues? I think the announcers even made jabs about the announced attendance.
