    Death to Cyclone Alley!

    This is a bad turnout. Should Cyclone Alley be abolished?

    Re: Death to Cyclone Alley!

    Cyclone Alley has slim to no effect on attendance. People buying tickets however, does. People like to *****, but getting rid of Cyclone Alley isn't going to magically fix attendance. A good basketball team will.

    Re: Death to Cyclone Alley!

    I was told that student tickets were sold out. If so, where are they?

    It's a Sunday 1 p.m. tip against a bad opponent, did you expect a jam packed frenzied Hilton?

    Re: Death to Cyclone Alley!

    Death to Cyclone Ally? How about death to the entire building then? Where are all the alums? Where are all the folks from around Ames that are Cyclone fans? Jesus I can't figure out the obsession with bashing the student turnout .

    Team wins + NCAA tourny's = good crowds.

    5 years of crappy basketball + 2nd game vs alabama st = crappy crowd.

    Re: Death to Cyclone Alley!

    Personally I have never purchased student season tickets because of Cyclone Alley. I do not want to pay extra for the SAA membership, buy that shirt and have to wear it every game, participate in those rediculous chants, etc. The $99 season ticket package is a more attractive option for me and my fellow Cyclone basketball fans.

    So, abolish the student section? They essentially are one in the same.

    Re: Death to Cyclone Alley!

    If you don't want the SAA membership, when you sign up, just say "already have SAA" and you can sign up for CA only.

    Regardless, the $99 tickets are fine. Its your choice to spend $60 less and sit up higher. Nothing wrong with that.

    Looking at the crowd, fans are sprinkled around in every parquet section.
    Oh wait...then you look at student sections 121-122-123 in the parquet...they're totally empty.

    Re: Death to Cyclone Alley!

    I will forgo judging student turnout until football season is over and we get into better teams.

    I don't like CA but they have no effect on attendance IMO.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Thats what you get with 5 years of a team that is horrendous. Maybe for you older folks it seems bad, but for many students, basketball turned into more of an "eh, I'm bored, lets go to a basketball game" type thing, rather than something they wanted to go to.

    Re: Death to Cyclone Alley!

    Half the season tickets owners didnt show up should we abolish that as well?

    You old people need to find something better to complain about. Its the 2nd game of the season. There are better things to do today.

    People not at the game should not complain about people not at the game.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Re: Death to Cyclone Alley!

    Another factor for lack of students is the fact that it is the last week before Thanksgiving break. This is the week where every teacher likes to cram a test in. I would like to be at the game but 3 tests this week kind of trumps that.
