    New York Weather

    To everyone who is complaining about how cold it will be in new york and how bad the weather will be..... you couldnt be more wrong. Im a New Yorker who has lived there for 20 years and now attends ISU and it gets WAY colder and nastier here in Ames then i have ever seen it get in NY. So for those of you using it as an excuse need to find another one!!

    Nobody is comparing New York weather to Ames weather. There's no ******* bowl game in Ames.

    Re: New York Weather

    The real comparison is weather in Texas versus weather in New York. Hint - it does snow in Dallas in December/January...

    Average high in the Yankee Stadium area on December 30th is 39 degrees. Nowhere near horrible, especially for an Iowa State Cyclone base, but the purpose of a bowl game is getting to go play someplace relatively warm.

    Re: New York Weather

    If anyone can take a bit of mildy cold weather it should be Iowans. I can't believe people are complaining so much about this bowl and saying this is the only bowl they wouldn't go to.
    I don't want to bag on people's financial situations and stuff, but how much more expensive can this bowl be than another bowl? I guess if the gap is that big it's unfortunate.

    As far as I go I'm a college student and I'm going. I made the mistake not going my freshman year, not going to do that again. Should be a fun time road tripping with friends. I'm extremely pumped.

    Exactly. The comparison is NYC to San Diego, Tempe, Dallas, etc.

    Re: New York Weather

    It's time to deal with the hand were dealt with. It's a **** bowl game but it is STILL a bowl game. I've been following the Clones long enough to remember when an 8 win season got you nothing.
    Take this bowl game and make it ******* fun for ******'s sake! It's a bowl game! It's time to recruit, it's time for extra practice. It's a time for our players to have the time of their collective lives in the most entertaining city in the world. This isn't what we all wanted but it's so much better then the alternative. Think about it.

    Well, it couldn't be much worse than what we experienced this weekend in Manhattan. My feet are still cold and wet.

    I went to the KC playoff game last year. Not really sure the difference in how cold it is, but I just wore a lot of layers and actually wasn't one bit cold.

    Not enough. Im fully aware that it is going to be really expensive to fly to ny and get a hotel right before new years for most people. Im just saying I was sick of people complaining about the weather. I personally love to go to football games in the cold. Its why i love to go to green bay!
