    College Gameday

    Just saw pics of College Gameday being set up in Columbia, MO right in front of the 'pillars' at Mizzou. Hypothetical question: Where would you want Gameday if it ever actually came to Iowa State?

    Tough choice, would be nice to be right outside of Jack Trice on the south end but that would mean losing a bunch of parking. Next best places either by Hilton or on central campus with the Campanile in the background.

    I would probably put them on campus. Either in front of the campanile or maybe on the north side of the MU near the fountain.

    IMO --

    You HAVE to put gameday near the stadium with our tailgate environement.

    East of stadium in grass field between University and G7. You then have the "Jack Trice Stadium" signage as a back drop.

    Re: College Gameday

    If they were on campus, the fans would come. If they were around Jack Trice, the fans would come. Either way, we're good.

    I was at one in front of the Orange Bowl for Miami-FSU and it was packed. I was at another one on Campus at LSU for LSU-Florida and it was packed. People would show up either way.

    I say open the student lot really early. Put the set on the high part right by the bridge, and have it overlooking a sea of buses, vehicles, and tents.

    Really anywhere would work. As long as someone can get Roger Sprague's "Glemdower Banner" into plain sight of the cameras behind Corso.

    Anyone think we will see our ol buddy Rog on Gameday this week??

    Just let me know.

    It has to be in the student lot somewhere. That is where we hang our hat people. Put it there and let craziness ensue.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I vote for in the student lot, with the stadium/scoreboard in the background. Put em right on the north edge of the lot with the rowdy students all around them.

    On campus is pretty, but to somber and has nothign to do with the gameday atmosphere.
