    ISU fans

    I'm sorry, but this has been bothering me for as long as I've been attending ISU home football games (1993). It really TICKS me off when our fans leave the game early. If you look at the lower level of the west side of the stadium, if we are up by 7 w/five minutes to go, they will start to flock out of the stadium. WTF?!

    I'm sorry, but this irks my skin. You don't see any other top level team across the country leaving early. I've been to Nebraska, Michigan, Iowa, even Mizzou and you NEVER see fans leaving early, let alone half the freaking west side of the stadium.

    With the later games, I think some parents of young children were probably trying to get their kids into bed. Also have a lot of folks that drive 2+ hours who probably wanted to get on the road. At least those people paid money and supported the program.

    That's what some family members of mine did, especially with the fog developing. But, hey, they should be strung up for being bad fans regardless.

    Re: ISU fans

    How many threads do we need about this? This is now the 3rd in 3 days dealing with how bad our fans are. People pay money for the tickets, it is their money and their tickets now so they can come and go as they please. If they don't want to watch the beginning, middle or end of the game, it is their choice. If they would rather sit out and tailgate longer and not watch more of the game, it is their choice. If they want to buy the tickets and not even leave their couch at home, it is their choice. People can do what they want with their belongings. Enough said!

    Is there a way that we can make a schedule for the guaranteed credit increase that these threads provide. I want in on posting this topic, too.
