    To the "Sell Out" fans...

    To the fans that sold their season ticket away...

    This past summer, Nebraska sold out for $$$$$$$$$$$$$.

    Today, you sold out for $$$$$$$$$$$$$.

    Which makes you on par with Nebraska, OUCH.

    I was surrounded by NU fans in a donor area. Two 40 something women threw a bottle at us because we were standing up cheering.

    Tons of Husker fans in sections 6 and 7.

    Thank you sell outs! Please don't go the rest of the season...and don't bother supporting the team ever again.

    Might be time to have a little chat with those fans when (if?) they show up for the Missouri game. Make sure to thank them for their support of the program.

    West side donor sections were littered with Husker fans. I get the cheap seats and hillsides, but tons of Huskers sitting in lower deck between the 30s.

    I couldn't agree more. I was very disappointed to see that many N fans in donor seats. Hillside, yes, but Nebraska fans in ISU donor seats?-absolutely a travesty, despicable.

    Sounds about right. Did you throw it back?

    I had Fusker fans who sat in front of me and behind me. If the sellout fans show up for the Missouri game, they will get an earfull from me you can bet your ***.

    Re: To the "Sell Out" fans...

    There really isn't any excuse to let that many Huskers into our house, especially if you bought that ticket to support the Cyclones.

    Maybe if you can say that you donated that money to the Gridiron Club, but something in me doubts that was the intent here.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    At least paint the donor seats a 80%-20% cardinal-gold confetti pattern so they look occupied. Sad.

    Re: To the "Sell Out" fans...

    It gets worse. Plenty in the good seats on the east side too. I had two extra tickets, very good seats, that no Cyclone fans would pay over $50 each for. Hillside seats were $50 each face, and these tickets, which were $90 each face plus the amount I have to donate in order to even be able to purchase them, well, I couldn't even get more for them than what hillsides were selling for. Pathetic

    And no, I don't care that Husker fans were more than willing to pay me what they were worth. I would never sell to a Husker or a Hawk fan. Never.

    So if and when it comes time to pay to keep our coach, I highly doubt we will be able to come through. Because many ISU fans are cheap, and will not pony up cash to keep him here, but will definitely ***** if he leaves for "more money".

    Very disappointed in ISU fans. Until we as a group realize that there is a high correlation between $ and success on the field or court, we will never take that next step forward as an athletic department.

    Oddly (and sadly), three ISU fans who have sat in front of us all year weren't there yesterday. Instead, the seats were occupied by Nebraska fans. And they were obnoxious and as annoying as you know what.

    I understand there are times when a person can't make it to a game. But if that's the case, try selling your tickets to State fans.

    ...waiting for the "I paid for the ticket, I can do what I want with it" fans to chirp in.

    -I can wear what I want
    -I can leave when I want
    -I can cheer when I want
    -I can sell it to who I want
