    Re: Talkin' with Tron: A challenge

    Quick note on this: It has been brought to my attention that at one point in this video, one of us said that the cost to be in the Gridiron Club is $100 a month. Obviously, that is supposed to be $100 a year. Thought I'd clarify for those who didn't know. Thanks.

    It's not unusual for a car salesman to be inaccurate when estimating payments. But it is unusual for one to miss on the high side.

    If Tron tells you to join the Gridiron Club, you've already joined it, you just don't know it yet.

    When Tron can prove he can bench 400 pounds and curl a car, I will join.

    I sense a challenge here, of course, the great Tron does not entertain challenges from mere mortals like us. he has no need to prove himself. He is Tron.

    Just joined.
    Any way we can get updates to show how much membership grows between now and the first game?

    Like Chris mentioned in the video, I too didn't know that a student could join for as little as $25.

    I just signed myself up!

    I also didn't know this. Once I am working full time this summer I am going to strongly consider joining.

    Great idea on this Chris and it is something that can truly help the ISU football program.

    Chris:

    How about some sort of identifier in profile info for CF members who are gridiron club members? Would be a good way to see who's helping out! Confession: I wouldn't have the identifier yet, need to talk to the one who must be obeyed this weekend about it.
