Ugh, yeah and it is drake...All those old blue hairs are not going to drive all the way to IC to watch a game.

Worse yet - I'm pretty sure finals were this week so the students have probably cleared out.

Of course - paid and actual are two very different things.

Edit - Honest rw, I typed this before I read your post.

On TV they were saying 10,500 or so. It sounds more like 500 or so.

Is it just me, or does this entire program just feel, well, boring. Lickliter isn't exactly Mr. Intensity, though I do like him. The court sounds almost tranquil on TV. It just feels like you're watching a mid-major, and I don't mean that as an insult to Drake.

25-14 now. Looks like Iowa is going to try and hang with Drake from behind the arc. I don't think that's a very good plan.

8 team fouls for Iowa now.

I don't think the problem with MBB support is either on Licklighter or the University. I do think there are two possible explanations. Either 1) many people that actually supported MBB wanted/liked Alford, or 2) They really are only a football school.

Does Dolph bother looking at a roster? He just called Jarryd Cole Jacob Cole.

3) they're finicky and only support a proven winner.

If iowa was 10-0 right now, there would be tons more people. If they are in contention for the Big 10 :)no:), it'll be packed like it was a few years ago when Horner and Bruner made the run.

ESPN's game trackers are notoriously bad for crapping out during the game...

This CSTV one doesn't seem bad. It hasn't froze or failed.

It could be 10 minutes slow for all I know, however. (don't care)
