    Actually, through the years, Cincinnati has been a pretty good minor league hockey town. The original Cyclones were a very strong draw in the ECHL and subsequently moved up to the AAA IHL, where they averaged 7,000 a night. The AHL Ducks and second edition ECHL Cyclones have been solid draws as well. The WHA Stingers (with former Husky Billy Steele) also averaged over 7,000 a night during their 4 year run. It's also interesting that one of the rinks, the Cincinnati Gardebs, was a scaled down copy of Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens.

    You're the perfect example of why Michigan is the most hated fanbase on the planet.

    If the announced attendance was 3917 for the first day, more than half of those were Huskies fans

    I assume you stuck around for the Union/PSU game, I did not but that's a huge part of assessing this. From what I gather MTU was around 1500 while PSU was similar with very few Union fans and a couple hundred DU fans which was pretty impressive to me.
    I stayed for the second game, I would say MTU and PSU were pretty even fan wise, Tech may have had a few more overall.

    Especially considering that fanbase is usually about 12 people.

    From the accusation that Tech would not draw last weekend...



    Which team had the most fans at the regional site? If the announced attendance was 3917 for the first day, more than half of those were Huskies fans...from the #4 seed in the building and the lowest overall in the field.

    And many of of the Tech fans stayed around for the championships game. Very impressive showing from an awesome fan base!

    And that's fantastic for them. The point of the discussion was the NCAA putting Tech in Cincinnati for "attendance reasons," and I've asked multiple times for someone to give a ballpark figure on how many fans Tech would bring. The fact that so many refuse to do so is a pretty good indication of how small that number would be.

    Looks like the posted attendance was 3,917, I would have guessed it to be more. I would put Tech in around 1200, I think Penn State had a few more than that once they all showed up for the second game they probably had 1500ish and then the other two teams and people who just came to watch some hockey made up the rest.

    My guess would have been 2500. There were a lot of fans in the two main sections and then plenty scattered around sitting with fans of other teams, even Denver. I was sitting to the north of the Camera well and there were lots of Tech fans without gear on, near me. I thought Union had about 400 and Du about 1000.

    Tech had a great season. At the end of the day, everyone that makes a playoff ends the year with a loss, except one.

    We won the Broadmoor and made the NCAA tournament for the 2nd in 3 tries. We won winter carnival. We We took the GLI championship to OT, and we took the McNaughton to the final series with BSU.

    I'd probably take that as a good season on day 1.

    I don't remember what thread the discussion was in, but if the poster who questioned how many Tech fans would show up in Cincinnati reads this, I hope you enjoy your nice big cup of shut the ******* up.

    I'd put the number around at least 2000. And that only counts the obvious apparel wearers. They were magnificent.
    I remember those posts as well... It was an Awesome crowd. Proud to have been a part of it.
