    Vikings Exhibition in Ames?

    Before you get too excited, this is just a Twin Cities ESPN Radio personality tossing out ideas about where the Vikings can play games during stadium construction. On Twitter, no less.

    Home exhibitions? One at TCF Bank, one in Ames (expand market). This is my theory & I'm sticking with it.
    How awesome would an NFL exhibition be at Jack Trice Stadium???

    LOL. As a Vikings fan and an even bigger Cyclone fan (and a native Iowan) - I can say without anyone getting on my case about it: That would be an all time low for the Vikings to play in Ames.

    Vikings fans had to take enough crap from other teams fans when the roof collapsed. If they start doing the midwest exhibition tour through Ames they'll be the laughing stock of the league.

    I don't care what other people say about it. I think it'd be awesome if they played here.

    Re: Vikings Exhibition in Ames?

    How many fans go to exibition games anyway? I think it would be a good idea to get some new fans. Plus, ISU could try and charge them for our services. I think a bowled in SEZ would suffice.

    Even as a Bears fan I think this would be really cool and great for Iowa State and Ames. There are a lot of Vikings fans in Iowa that would go and even some Iowa NFL fans of other teams would go (I know I would). I doubt it will happen but would be very cool nonetheless.

    HEY SHOW A LITTLE RESPECT BRO! JUST BECASUE YOU'RE NOT A FAN OF A PARTICULAR TEAM DOESN'T MEAN YOU SHOULD BELITTLE THEM. NOT COOL DUDE. ANYWAYS I WOULD LOVE TO SEE MY VIKES PLAYIN IN THE LEGENDARY JACK TRICE STADIUM, I THINK IT WOULD BE AN HONOR FOR BOTH SIDES TO COME TO AN AGREEMENT FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS AND PEOPLE COULD DRINK AT THE GAME, WHICH I KNOW IS SOMETHING YOU WOULD APPRECIATE MR. MIP..


    Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

    I'd go and I'm definitely not a Vikings fan. I'd just love to see an NFL game at JTS. That said, I'd be shocked if this happened.

    That would be incredible. Good for the Vikings - exposure, good for Ames, and great for ISU. More cash flow for JTS would be good right? Eight games in JTS helps justify costs.

    Only let this happen if Sage starts that game.

    I do not like the Vikings but I'd pay to see a preseason game at Jack Trice. Maybe KC as an opponent?

    This would be awesome, especially if they could get the chiefs as an opponent.

    That said, there has to be no way that this ends up happening. They'd probably go to Iowa City before coming here.
