    Volleyball photo

    If I'm not mistaken you all had about 14,000 show up for a volleyball match...I think it was posted in a "here is ISU" thread on our boards but it is gone....anyone got the pic?

    Thanks...we had to put one of our own back in his place.

    That crowd is just staggering...our women's team is going to pee themselves when they come to play you all.

    That's not normal and the crowd has never come close to that since then IIRC. There were some massive specials including free or $1 admission.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: Volleyball photo

    Does the master plan have a V-ball only arena included in it? Or did I just dream that up?


    A world without yoga pants and Planter's cheese balls, is a world I no longer want to live in.

    Probably had a lot to do with the thousands of Husker fans who showed up too.

    Re: Volleyball photo

    Iowa State has been in the top 20 in attendance, nationally, for the last five years. Once in a while, we'll have an outstanding crowd (as in 2009 for the kNU game) when they run a promotion. But we show up every game and we're loud. We're averaging 22.5 wins over the last four seasons and have made at least the Sweet 16 in four of the last five years.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)

    I've been to a few of our volleyball games despite living 5 hours away. Sad to say but expect to play in front of about 200 in Morgantown. It looks even worse since they play in the colosseum which holds about 14000. We do the same thing with promotions, they gave away Chick Fil A sandwiches at the last one I went to.

    Biggest reason it was 2 hours after a football game.

    1) tailgate
    2) football
    3) tailgate
    4) volleyball
    5) figure a way to get back to the hotel


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: Volleyball photo

    My friends and I used to head to Volleyball games all the time. One of the guys was seeing a VB player, they were a good time. I was pumped for that game, I think we had just beaten #1 Texas earlier that week so we thought this was the perfect stage to set us up for a top 5 ranking. Oh well, what could have been.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”
