    Thursday night game dropped for 2011

    2:00 Timeout: Restoration Crews On-Site at Hilton - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    Open the season on Saturday night Sept 3, Iowa on Sept 10, and @UConn on Sept 17. Utah has been dropped from the schedule. Personally, I like this, as I am not a fan of Thursday night games.

    Makes the 2011 schedule not as difficult as well! Playing @ UCONN is BIG game next year.

    Playing at UCONN is seriously the dumbest thing ever with our new Big XII schedule. We need wins.

    Its the make up game from 2002 when they came to Ames. It was either play that game or buy out of it...

    Re: Thursday night game dropped for 2011

    I think adding A&M, Baylor and OSU for Utah, CU and NU is a wash. Do we play UNI two years in a row every three years? UConn appears down this year, a trend that I hope continues next year.

    These games are scheduled years in advance so there was no way for anybody in the AD to anticipate the new scheduling situation in the conference. Frankly, we got lucky that Utah is jumping to the Pac 10 and both schools mutually agreed to not play @ Utah next year.

    I'm indifferent. Don't mind Thursday night games at all, as it totally frees up Labor Day weekend. Should make for a great tailgate atmosphere, though. UNI should ensure it's a good crowd too.

    UNI and Iowa back to back weeks. Not sure if Ames can take that many Hawk fans in consecutive weekends.

    I really like the Thursday night game but with playing UNI, it makes good sense to have that on Saturday.

    good news!!

    I suspect that means CU is not in the big12 all for 2011 then... there were rumblings about them hanging around another year.

    Shouldve bought out of it. An additional home game coupled with the financial benefit of a greater chance at a win should make up for a large chunk of whatever the buyout mightve been, if not completely cover it.

    Re: Thursday night game dropped for 2011

    Can't fault ISU for the UConn game - didn't expect them to become a relatively strong opponent.

    As for the Thursday night game - never bothered me but I think it's fair to rotate it.

    Its a wash when you compare the weak schedule rotation and the one year utah's there. When you compare CU\NU\and the weak noncon we should be scheduling to the TU\TTU\OU that we add the other 2\4 years, its not even close.
