    Home from the Virigina Game

    Finally home from the Virgina game. It was awesome to see the Cyclones in person as it has been awhile. We had a great time. I do have to say that the Virigina fans were great. We had great seats and John Paul Jones area was amazing. I have to say that it is probably the nicest venue I have been to for college basketball games. The game was ugly at times but we pulled out a victory. We were also lucky enough to have the team staying at our hotel (we didn't know it until we got there). We spoke with Coach Hoiberg for a few minutes and a few of the players. My son also got a picture with Jamie Pollard as well. He came over to talk with us while we were eating lunch. We didn't see him but he saw our ISU gear on and came to talk to us. Overall great experience. Just wish they played more on the east coast!

    Re: Home from the Virigina Game

    Its a nice brand new venue, and cozy and comfortable (sounds like a snuggie ad). UVA fans were very nice. I kind of feel bad for them, their offense is like ours for the past few years. At one point I saw like 25 balls in a row go through the net during warm ups and I thought we were in trouble. Fortunately, that didn't equate to the game.

    Just proves how classy our athletes, coaches, and AD are.

    Re: Home from the Virigina Game

    Question - looked like alot of empty seats in the arena. Was it due to weather, Virginia not drawing well or just the time the pictures were taken?

    Re: Home from the Virigina Game

    It wasn't full, but a decent crowd. It was probably the fact that it was over the holidays and people with those seats were doing things with their family, just like at our games. Lots of kids or families with kids in the lower level using grandpa/grandmas high donor seats.

    Re: Home from the Virigina Game

    That was my first visit to JPJ, beautiful arena with a bball offices and hof on the end above the student section. Much better than Uhall where I saw the last ISU game, twice the capacity also.
    The staff was extremely friendly as were the fans around our seats. Everyone thought we drove out for the game from Iowa. I have always heard Cville was very uptight but with daughter a first year there I haven't seen it. Definitely a do again for a game.
