Boone Pickens Thread got me thinking . . .
« on: August 14, 2013, 04:32:43 PM »
so I did a little research on largest football crowds at Big 12 Schools (including Former) involving K-State.

-Largest Crowd in KU History

-Largest Crowd in Okie Lite History

-Largest Crowd in Iowa State History

-10th Largest Crowd in OU Football History

-10th Largest Crowd in CU Football History

-8th Largest Crowd in MU Football History (No KU games listed)

K-State has/had to play in a lot of Super Bowls.

Our color should be changed to green and our mascot should be Ben Franklin or something.

Clearly we see why KU would never even think of moving the game to a neutral venue.   We dominate their top crowd charts and "hated rival" MU barely made an appearence.   

Iowa State has to be kicking themselves for ever agreeing to Farmageddon seeing how they practically knocked down the gates and fences to get into the stadium to watch their team play K-State last year.

When you have a fanbase that travels as well as the KSU Cats do, plus a team that is always playing meaningful games on national tv in prime time, you are going to fill every house you visit. It's just a fact of life, and I must say that I enjoy it.

on one hand I love how much KU and MU hate each other.  on the other hand I'm like, just chill out bros.  they're pretty immature about it.  the saying is that time heals all wounds, get over it my gosh.

New warning: Don't get in a fight with someone who doesn't even need to bother to buy ink.

Pickens' largesse to OSU prompted Texas A&M's 12th Man Magazine to label A&M's decision not to renew Pickens' $25-a-month freshman basketball scholarship as one of the top 10 mistakes in Aggie history.
