    50,000 Towels for Kent State Game

    I recently received an email from JP and he said that they will be handing out 50,000 towels for fans for the first home game. That should up the intimidation factor a bit.

    Wow, I'm getting goosebumps imagining what everyone waving towels around from the stands will look like at night. This is going to be insane.

    Once again if JP thinks it is a good idea it probably is and I am wrong. But, I hate towels and think they are lame and overdone. I mean...its a towel???!!! How about handing out 50000 #1 pointer fingers...now that would be different and serve the same purpose.

    I feel like the pointer fingers would be twice as expensive to produce... plus, you can't sling those around. Seeing an entire crowd swinging something as simple as a towel around is an impressive sight.

    I dunno 50,000 towels being spun around just looks pretty damn cool and its better than nothing at all plus it works with the whole cyclone theme in a way.

    I don't know about you, but I wouldn't have my hand in a foam finger and let my hand sweat like no other. And a lot of older fans wouldn't do that, either. Anyone would participate if it's just a towel.

    Re: 50,000 Towels for Kent State Game

    I am all for a free towel! they can add that expense on to my season tix every year...my tix just came about 30 mins ago and lemme just say I am pumped. IDK about the "BBQ Texas" Golden Rules shirt or not...but I love the towel idea, let Kent State know they are NOT coming into a friendly non-conf. environment!!! Loudest 50,000 in college sports people!

    Re: 50,000 Towels for Kent State Game

    Waving the feared towels for Kent Freakin State? Why don't we hand out towels against a feared opponent like Iowa or Texas or Oklahoma. Or even UNI. I would think the Kent boys would already be fearing the start of the new Chizick area anyway. They know who they are playing. They don't need towels to remind them.

    I think it's more to jack the fans up for the season, rather than intimidating the opposing team. Sure, it'd help the intimidation factor, but I'm looking at it as more of a celebration for the new era in ISU football. I can't wait!
