    I'm guessing the game isn't going to be on Mediacom since Comcast Sports is showing the Blackhawks game rather than picking up the FSN feed. If that holds, I'll probably be headed for a bar.

    I'm possibly up for meeting some where. Something tells me that Keep will veto my choice.

    I went to Mulligans for the UConn game. Never again.

    Tavern Hawks were extra nasty after losing to us. Waitress wouldn't even entertain the idea of putting the audio over the speakers. "Read the menu. We're a Hawkeye Establishment."

    Third Base Brewery is usually a good place to watch--tons of ISU there for UCONN game---I think Mediacom may pick up the FSN feed though eventually

    I'd be game to watch it somewhere. 3rd base is good.

    Guys, 3rd Base's ownership are huge Cyclone haters. I can't believe you're going there.

    Then where should they go? I have watched a few games at 3rd base, it is not all that great, but I didn't get a lot of hate there either.

    That is the problem...just nowhere to go in CR if you want to enjoy a game with Cyclone fans and not be constantly reminded that CR is a complete Hawkeye town! It isn't that there are no Cyclone fans...it is that businesses know who their customers are so they cater to Hawk fans.

    Seems like just yesterday we were putting up billboards in Cedar Rapids claiming superiority in our state...now we can't even get all of our football games aired on the radio in CR!

    Here's a thought: Let's open one. Who's with me? A Cyclone Alumni Club bar. 1% of gross receipts go to the athletic dept.

    Great idea...would it be able to sustain itself? I would certainly frequent that type of establishment!

    Re: CR game watch

    If we all show up in a drove, I can't see why they wouldn't put it on TV, no matter where we go.

    Having said that, I'm game as well. I have mediacom, but if I don't get the game I'm headed out to find it somewhere.


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    True. We just need to find a place that appreciates our business...unlike the post above somewhere that said something like "this is a Hawk bar"...

    It would have to cater to all ISU grads, not just sports fans. Rockwell and Alliant are full of ISU grads (engineers). I'm thinking something small, clean, friendly and classy, not a tavern hok dive bar. One giant projection screen surround by a handful of smaller flat screens tuned to other conference games. Maybe even a small screen tuned to the Iowa game.
