    "Johnny's at Hilton Coliseum"

    Is open for business for Men's basketball....as long as you give $12,500 a year you can get in.

    Very disappointed. I thought this was going to be for the common donor who gives, well , less than $12,500 a year.

    Maybe if they check ID's as well as they do at Stage Door I can get in

    Re: "Johnny's at Hilton Coliseum"

    Do you realize how many donors that'd be? There is absolutely no way they could do that in restricted space.

    If it draws additional donations that benefit the athletic programs, I'm fine with it.

    well there are less than 75 people (mostly corporations) who give over $12,500 a year, so they are going to get some very special treatment.

    I didn't say let everyone in, just lower the bar a bit to say........$2500

    Why make a big deal out of something that is going to only affect less than 75 people?

    Um, I'm pretty sure that thing will be consistently filled with way more than 75 people.

    75 donors...probably looking at roughly 3 people per donor so we're already sitting at 225...

    I have read different numbers than that. Plus you have to figure guests of those 75 will be allowed in.
    Also. lowering it $2500 would be way too many people, at least I hope so.

    I am glad that it is so exclusive, although I wish the donation requirement was even hire. I also like that they will let NCC members have access for things like game watches.

    Re: "Johnny's at Hilton Coliseum"

    As of the last count I saw, there were 87 Directors level donors and each could bring 4-6 guests to the MBB game

    So say, on average 1/2 attend, 4 and bring 4, then you are at 160-200. Perhaps a little lite, but if you add Victory level, you are way over.

    So, it sounds fair.

    Think I may have to head up there one day for a gamewatch to see the joint. Sounds pretty cool.

    Re: "Johnny's at Hilton Coliseum"

    Has anyone in the Athletic Dept. actually confirmed this amount? Yes, I understand there's not enough room to fit 8,000 season ticket holders in Johnny's, but $12K is a little pretentious. I mean, come on, ISU is a land-grant institution. The University was first built to serve common men and women. Let's leave this kind of snobbery to our dear friends in Iowa City.

    This. I'm all for having these kind of things for big donors, but it would've been nice to see Johnny honored in a way that could be appreciated by all the fans.

    At least we will be able to see the statue.

    The irony of it is, those are the rich pompous windbags that Johnny would never choose to drink with in real life.

    Court Cy'd ticket holders all get in also. 4 people per 2 Court Cy'd seats. That fills the place. And yeah the donation amount is correct.
