    Will this be the Most watched game ever...

    ... in the history of ISU?

    Facing #2 team in country on National TV.
    Only game on besides Toledo v. Central Michigan.
    No NBA
    No NFL
    No Baseball
    BCS Trophy in town
    Samantha Steele

    I would have to think every sports bar in the country will have it on.

    If not what game would it of been? ISU v OU Seneca Toga game?

    The ISU/OU game was a regional ABC Broadcast, so this one would have it beat. I cant think of a game ISU has played where there has not been another game going on at the same time that was a better option to watch.

    That's why people need to show up for the game. Hate to see a game on national TV without a great crowd on hand. That's why I am driving over. That plus I love watching games live.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Hopefully they all stay til the end of the game. How big a recruiting tool over TT would that be if the fans are still there even in a blowout.

    Hmmm. not sure if I'd chose to think about it quite like that, but I like the enthusiasm!


    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

    Yeah not sure that came across exactly how I wanted. But I think you got the point.

    Win>>infinity>> (blowout loss with fans still there) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> (blowout loss with fans exiting by the droves.)

    In the worse case scenario it is a chance for the fans to separate ourselves from every other fan base instead of just saying how great we are. I have no delusions that it would actually happen that way.

    it will be the most watched up until the end of the first quarter when we are losing 24-0. i'd switch to reality tv after that too...if i had a cable...or a tv.

    Probably most for football, but that ISU vs Mich St hoops game in the elite eight probably had crazy ratings.

    What network was the Iowa State - Florida State game (Seneca scored) on? I was there, so don't really recall the network. That was a national game/broadcast right?
