    Looks like we are going to have a nice vertical migration on that TV revenue split this season.

    I love that were playing a home game on ESPN but isn't that the Friday before Thanksgiving break? I hope the students stick around for that one. Having it on Friday should help though.

    That's actually a decent point... students may stick around for friday night and head off to break for thanksgiving after.

    On the other hand, its going to be an 8pm game, in november, meaning even colder, so attendance may be negatively affected that way.

    At least we aren't playing a Thursday night game this year...then even more people would complain about this.

    This was my thought as well. Those Friday night games are nice because theres a good chance thats the only game on at that time.

    I would think Friday would have a much better draw. Students who are going to leave for break right after classes weren't going to be sticking around for the Saturday game anyway.

    This is great! the game against Mizzou was a night game, but it was on Saturday. I'm sure a lot more students will stick around. Plus ESPN 2!


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    Pollard also added that Iowa State closes for Thanksgiving on Nov. 21, so moving the Oklahoma State game a day earlier eased concerns for students heading home for the holiday.


    “Our department met with student leaders and the President’s leadership team to discuss the opportunity, and the feedback was that playing Friday night was beneficial in regards to the student body’s travel plans,” Pollard said.

    Yeah.. but thats the effect on a segment of our attendance, about 7,000. What about the other 40k?

    I don't know what to say to this. If they can't make it to a nationally televised conference home game on a weekend night than there is no hope.

    Well thats good he talked about it with student leaders. I know I'd stay for that game, assuming we were 0-10 at the time.

    Re: Oklahoma State Game to be played on Friday, Nov 18

    As a student, I am more likely to stick around for the game since it is on Friday now. This is very good because we will get better attendance, more exposure, and more money!
