    Iowa State/Iowa Sellout??

    How is this game going to be a sellout?

    We have sold 36k seats plus 4k to Iowa for visitors and around 3k for tents - thats 43k and a sellout is around 46k - correct?

    What am I forgetting?

    I don't think it will officially be sold out. I don't see the hillside season tickets being sold out as well as the ones in the stands - that's the only way it will be sold out.

    Close, but not completely.

    Are students included in that 36k?

    Yes that total includes students. (I'll cut you some slack for asking that since you only have 2 posts here.)

    What about tickets for recruits and players family ticket allotment?

    Pollard said he would not be selling single game tickets, but he didn't say anything about giving them away.

    Plus, I thought the tent tickets were closer to 10k rather than 3K.

    Your forgetting some numbers. I know on a thread from yesterday they broke all this down. As it stand right now, according to Mr. Pollard we have 48,000 seats sold for the Iowa game.

    Like I said I know this was discussed yesterday. We have a sale out if you look at nothing more then the 45,000 the stadium holds without the hillside. Still not bad for no single game tickets.

    Also, my brother who is a Hawk fan said he saw on the Iowa message board that we are going to sell hillside tickets(GA) Thursday night for $5. I have a hard time believing this.

    There is so much that seems wrong with that statement... ranging from Pollard won't do it to he'd be stupid to do it for only $5... he could make a killing on those

    Pollard is not going to do that, but if he did I would buy all of the tickets, and sell them for at least $50 a ticket (and give all the money back to ISU, of course. )

    Re: Iowa State/Iowa Sellout??

    I got rung up for this last week, but I could've swore that tents were 7K, opposing team 4K, held back for VIPs as 1K.

    With our 36K season ticket sold (say less 1K for hillsides) making 35K seats, that puts us in at 47K, give or take. That means sellout.

    Plus the 1K hillsides - that's 48K in the stadium.

    Somebody find a definitive number on the tents? I have had people tell me that 7K is wrong, but nothing (either way) proving what the number is?

    Are you sure he's not talking about tomorrow night? Walkup hillside tickets for $5.

    Also remember that the Lil Clone members can get into all games for free. This will add to the total game attendance as I am sure some season ticket holders went this route for their kids versus paying the full price.

    Re: Iowa State/Iowa Sellout??

    Anyone notice we haven't heard Marty rant lately about single game tickets? Someone sort of brought it up the other day and he kinda squashed that talk so thinking he's coming to reality there will be no single game tickets to that game.

    Re: Iowa State/Iowa Sellout??

    He was talking Monday that he's going to lose the bet. That there won't be singles sold.

    He is convinced however that there WAS a plan B, that's he's 100% right about that. But that JP doesn't have to implement it since the season ticket sales are going so well.

    So he's trying to squirm a measure of victory out of utter defeat

    Re: Iowa State/Iowa Sellout??

    About the tent tickets it all depends on how many auxiliary tents there are. There are 33 Standard tents which can get 50 tickets per tent. So that is 1650 tickets. I thought I heard a while ago that there was 50 tents total but I can't find anything that says that now. If it is 50 tents then it is 2500 tickets from the tent sales.

    He is also going on and on about how we are going to get beat. I'm glad he is picking against us because I don't think he's had 1 of his "predictions" come true.
