Did the 4000 Cuse allotment sell out?

My guess is 5k Orange...8k Gophers.

Looking at ticketmaster and the 6000 tickets on stubhub,I'm going to say a little less. This won't have the atmosphere of the pinstripe bowls I don't believe. I'm still super stoked to go!

No they didn't come close to selling out the allotment...stubhub, etc... is the cause.

I'm thinking 1500-2000 Cuse fans plus the kids. Funny I talked to several TX based Cuse fans and most are flying back to the NE for the Holidays.

I have the same problem for the women's basketball game. Someone asked me where do people in Arizona go for Xmas break? Yes they go visit family. Or go skiing or go someplace even warmer than AZ. I have so many regulars away next weekend.

  2. Last year the #Gophers traveled just under 3,200 fans to Houston. Biggest improvement was student travel. Three bus loads this year.

My worst fear is that this will look like the Tulane game in NOLA a couple years ago. Man, it was empty.

Texas high school play off games sometimes take place at Reliant Center. Further, I am certain many of the larger schools bring more than 10K fans to the stadium.

Could the Texas Bowl be the worst Orange bowl travel number ever? Wonder how many fans made the trip to Shreveport for the 1979 Independence Bowl or the 1985 Cherry Bowl in Detroit?

Did you see the attendance at the Pitt game last night? It can't get much worse than that...these games are more about giving ESPN something to do anyway...

Throwing a tailgate in my garage today, 120 in projection screen with surround sound. Will also have both the 60 in plasma and the 50 in LCD with the game on in the house for the women and kids who can't stand in the cold for 4 hours. About 40 people coming over from my usual tailgate crew, it's all I have room for. It is always a blast, most people don't go in the house at all during the game. Patio heater, fire pit and salamander will be blasting in the garage and driveway.

GO ORANGE!!!!!
