I Hate Attendance Smack Talk...


...but this just couldn't go unmentioned. Looks like Mack Brown and the big, bad University of Texas are having to BEG fans to come out for the Iowa State game. Yeah, maybe they will get 80,000 to the game, but I doubt it, and if they do it will be a T-shirt fan paradise. The crowd at DKR might look like the infield at Talladega on Saturday morning. So way to go Texas, you talk shit about attendance until the cows come home, but at the first sign of trouble your fans stay clear of you like you've got Ebola. If we did have any UT readers they'd come on here and talk about how much more 70,000 is than the 45,000 we will probably draw, but let me ask you this: what looks better, a 50,000+ student body and a stadium that seats 90,000 with 70,000 in it, or a near capacity 45,000 with a student body of 8,000? That's what I thought. Once again, Texas gets scoreboarded by little ole TCU. It's days like today that I wish Purple Pansy still frequented our blog...

I also forgot to mention that I know someone who just bought a ticket to the game for $20. Face value was $75. OUCH!

Are we really claiming scoreboard on UT in regards to attendance?

Yes it's funny to see them have to resort to this sort of stuff, and I'm all for dogging on them, but you know, glass houses and whatnot.

Yeah, maybe scoreboard wasn't the right thing to say, but more like "we are tied this time so shut up" type of scoreboarding. But yes, you're right- the funny part is that big, bad UT has to resort to Mack Brown playing Uncle Sam to get attendance figures up. Pretty pathetic.

I was out at DKR for the ISU game yesterday. Decent crowd, I guess... But the stadium was pretty empty by the end. What struck me was how quiet it was.
