    Favorite thing about game day?

    There are probably a ton of things that you like about game day at Iowa State. What is your favorite thing though?

    Mine is spending time with friends and yelling as loud as I can at opposing teams. Also I love tailgating and eating great food and drinking good beer.

    Being from Mason City, I just love that feeling of being around thousands of other Cyclones.

    I like it when the team arrives on the bus and is paraded into the building... followed by the band marching from the lots into the stadium too.

    Obviously the tailgating is fun, but that's pretty fun no matter what game you're attending. I was trying to think of something that makes us a bit unique?

    the 6 hours before kickoff - not that I don't enjoy the games, those are fun too.

    Tailgating (especially the student and g7 lots), the player walk to the stadium when I make it there. The run up the hill, then down to the stands for important games. Oh and going out at half time for a beer!!

    Our tailgating set up is actually pretty unique. There aren't a lot of other schools that have such a large, convenient and enthusiastic tailgate scene. It's so user friendly, and accessible. Having traveled around the Big 12, I really appreciate and love our tailgating.

    I love waking up in the morning and putting on my game day attire and than walking over to jack trice. I love the spirit walk and seeing thousands of cyclone fans. I also enjoy the night before games when the RV's are parked out side JTS.

    Tailgating.
    Don't get me wrong, I love the game and that's the main reason I come back, but ISU tailgating is a notch above the rest. The 6 hours of anticipation leading up to kickoff. A sea of thousands upon thousands of ISU fans in cardinal and gold, stretching as far as the eye can see. Music playing. Grills smoking. Beer flowing. The sights and sounds of ISU gameday are unique and special. It doesn't compare to anything else.
    I love the feeling of walking to my tailgating spot, a case of beer in my hand, friends at my side, knowing that my entire Saturday is ahead of me filled with tailgating and then finally the game.

    This sums it up pretty well. The camaraderie in the lots, the tailgate games, always picking up new ideas for tailgates in the future. With all that said my favorite thing about game day is when I first walk in the stadium and look around and see everyone up standing and cheering. It sends shivers down my spine every time I walk into the Jack.

    Only once have I ever had this feeling outside of Ames and that was in Phoenix for the Insight bowl. It was amazing to see so many Cyclone fans together so far away from Iowa! The tailgate the night before at Rawhide was unbelievable because of all the Cyclones. They said that we set an attendance record that night there.

    Once I turn off Highway 30 and go north on University, the view once i come around the corner where you can see the brick Iowa State University sign, Jack Trice, and thousands of people wearing red and gold! And the game of course!

    Edit: How can we forget about Sweet Caroline? Love it.

    this might be weird, but my favorite thing is when the band marches around the stadium and by the food stands ect during the 3rd ish quarter. Love it.
