    Hopefully no golden rules this week

    I don't see any reason to show that Nebraska has 5 to 10 thousand fans in our stadium. I think we sould just wear our normal stuff and let them blend in, besides it's supposed to be a little cool and I don't have a gold jacket ( and I don't care to buy one).

    I don't want a Golden Rules game because it seems like ISU never wins when there's some "promotional" aspect.

    I could possibly dig the rumored gold jersey look although since the earlier thread, I'd rather have gold jerseys, with regular helmet and the red road pants. (Or should I say "Rhoads" pants? )

    I would almost rather it was just a regular game, and ISU would find a way to win it.

    Re: Hopefully no golden rules this week

    Lets just do our normal thing. I would like to see the team come out in all gold, but the crowd thing is dumb for this time of year and just points out all the NU fans.

    Plus, ISU can never pull these type of things off.

    Plus, not every ISU fan complies, which makes it appear to be even more Nebraska fans than are actually there.

    Golden rules is fine for August and September games when the weather is good but in November it's just plain stupid IMO.

    Re: Hopefully no golden rules this week

    Agreed it shouldnt happen. Things like a 'gold out' work best when 1. its warmer weather and easier to do with tshirts, and 2. your opponent doesnt bring a crapload of fans and your alternate color will just highlight how many of them there are in the stadium\make our fans that wear red look like their fans.

    Also, cardinal-outs would be much easier to accomplish.. many more people seem to have red\cardinal shirts than yellow\gold, hell, look at the Cyclones.com online store and you'll see how much more cardinal merchandise is there as compared to gold.

    It will be a golden rules game and I think everyone should wear gold...we didnt see these fabled "golden jerseys" this week, but maybe with a nationally televised gold rules game we will.

    Totally agree with the original post. No need to show how much of the stadium is Nebraska red. We should be there in red too.

    Re: Hopefully no golden rules this week

    Preaching to the choir. To make these things work, you have to be smart. Golden rules for this game = the opposite of smart.

    It will be November. Most of us have cardinal colored outerwear....not gold.

    NE will have a butt-load of fans wearing red. We don't need to do anything to help them stick out in the stands.

    Re: Hopefully no golden rules this week

    Every time we do something promotional in which the fan base is supposed to participate, whether it is Football or Basketball, it never turns out great. I don't know if it is the lack of publicity so that a lot of the 'older' fans don't know about it, or if it is just that we still have a large portion of casual fans who don't care... Either way I agree that it seems best to just play the game and cheer for us to win.

    And the forecast isn't exactly t-shirt weather for Saturday for most, the temperature is likely to only be around 50 degrees... Which is great for November, but there will be way too many people where their coats and sweatshirts to pull of something like a golden rules...

    I think anytime you get a chance to make a visiting fan base disappear, you should do it. Cardinal it up and on TV the 15,000 husker fans will just look like part of our crowd.

    Plus, the best way to get a gold out at ISU is tell the fans to wear anything but gold.

    Re: Hopefully no golden rules this week

    This fanbase makes me want to bang my head on the wall over and over. Some posters on here were commenting on how cool it was when Iowa did their striping effect against PSU and how they wish we could do something like that. Heck, we cant even do ONE color. If the Athletic Department says that a Gold Rules would be a cool idea, I think we should take their advice. Who knows, maybe it would be bigger than just the crowd wearing gold.
