    Re: MBB Scrimmages before football games

    but but but, that is prime tailgating time. Will they let me bring my cooler and grill in? Cause if so, I am there!

    hah, now THAT would be a fun afternoon. I am laughing just thinking of firing the grill up in one of the isles of hilton. Maybe I could offer Wes a few steaks to add some meat on his bones.

    Does Hilton allow tailgating inside?

    They should hold them after afternoon saturday games so they dont interrupt tailgating.

    Re: MBB Scrimmages before football games

    If they setup some sort of court outside, allowing fans to gather around it in their chairs, beers in one hand and grills on their other side - it would be a hit.

    Stupid question-

    Can they legally hold formal practice before October 15th or so?

    There will be no coaches in the building. Players only, per NCAA rules.

    The coaches can work with small groups before formal practice starts. It's something like groups of 4 for a total of 2hrs/wk and then I believe it bumps up after a few weeks to largers groups and longer hrs/wk.

    I believe they can kick off practices at midnight on Friday, Oct 12.

    Re: MBB Scrimmages before football games

    Where did you hear this? Is it going to be a standard time, like 4 hours before gametime, or anything like that? I'm definitly going to hit this up. They should get the ladies involved too, have like 3 point shooting contests and stuff.

    It's just pick-up basketball. The ladies would have a hell of a time guarding the guys. :)

    To be honest, the number of people wanting tho watch the girls play pick-up basketball is incredibly small when tailgating is the other option.

    Ace could warm up before the game by tackling people in Hilton.

    You know what else is going on? Everyone should come listen to the band warm up out in front of the big steps to Hilton in the middle of the Iowa State Center at 5:15...



    (we're there a couple hours before kickoff of every game..)
