one Loyola note..
two of their injured players have yet to be cleared to play this season, Christian Negron & Adarius Avery...
Both have been practicing but are coming off knee injuries. One mention from an open practice was that Negron was still wearing a bulky knee brace. They could still be cleared soon - but it would be a dilemma if Loyola is playing well enough - would it be better NOT to rush them back...?

but that was really a snowstorm of epic proportions combined with a last minute change of game start time from 7pm to 3pm on a weekday (Tuesday)!
The fact that at least 300 fans did show was pretty impressive!

I don't recall any snowstorm last week in Bloomington

300 fans? What are you talking about!

The official attendance that Bradley reported for that game was 8,091

Now go back to laughing at UNI because they reported 3k last night.

Yes- you are citing a non-sequitur...
Bradley sold that many tickets that night - but a historically unusual storm shrunk the crowd.

but the UNI game was almost empty, for a regular season game on a regular night with good weather.
Their announced crowd was the lowest regular season attendance in three years - so what's up?? But only about 1/4 of those who bought tix showed up.
And ISU is coming off their best season in 20 years with lots of hype and can't fill 1/10 of the arena for a weekend game with superb weather and 64 degrees?

You know Bradley is still drawing 5,000 after a long stretch of horrible losing seasons, unpopular personnel (up thru 2015) and decisions by admin that were offensive to most fans....
Just wondering if ISU or UNI would even draw 500 under same circumstances?

Both teams reported tickets sold as their attendance. Something both schools have done forever.

ISU has over 3k student season tickets sold yearly. ISU only reports attendance as people actually at the game.

Imagine the attendance #ís if ISU reported attendance like Bradley and UNI report.

Something to think about when boasting and / or ridiculing about attendance #ís.

Good luck tonight.

there is nothing wrong with the way Bradley does it...most teams do it the same way...
Even the NFL reports "paid attendance" even if the stadium is 1/2 empty

and I'm not so sure about ISU's attendance reporting methods...
This game was reported as over 5,000!
