I know there probably isn't any hard data on this, but for all you that have been to several Spring Games, what's the highest attendance you've seen?

My guess is that this year's game will be the highest attended by far. Several people I know will be going for the first time this year.

You can't beat Stillwater in the spring. There's a buzz in the air! :)

I remember before the 2007 season I believe when Gundy issued the 30,000 challenge to the fans for the spring game. We didn't quite get there but there was about 20-22,000 there. That was probably the biggest crowd I've seen for a spring game. I missed last year but the couple years before that we had bad luck with weather and I think that hurt some.

I'd say last year was not nearly as ggod as '07. There were somewhere between 12 to 15K in the stadium at the beginning. We had some youngsters with us and it began in the afternoon, so we only stayed an hour or so. Had to get them fed. Should be pretty goo attendance this year, though. Now, if someone could tell me if the Spring Game is on the same day as the Remember the 10 run? :blink:

This. Seems like there was quite a big marketing push for the SG that year too (wasn't that when 'Worlds Most Powerful Offense' slogan was created?)

I think we would have reached 30k had it not rained that morning.
