    Re: On a lighter note...

    I guess I only thought a tunnel or entrance like that would be cool is if the tunnel went directly onto the field... otherwise.. whats the point?

    Re: On a lighter note...

    The whole tunnel thing has been one of the most overhyped things in CF history. If it had been straight to the field it mightve been cool, but through the tunnel then just down a sidewalk and through the same old inflatable tunnel? If anything its a little bit lamer.

    I think there will be changes for next year, so i guess final judgment will have to be reserved until then.

    I thought this was very poorly planned. Not a good thing to have the visiting team walk out in front of the student section. Also crossing the field to get to the locker rooms is just asking for some sparks to fly at some point.

    Re: On a lighter note...

    Having the teams crossing paths to go into the locker room at half time seems like a huuuuuuuge mistake and terrible oversight from everyone involved. The entrance wasn't any better or worse really, but having the teams go to opposite sides seems like poor planning and just asking for trouble.

    Re: On a lighter note...

    im sure this has already been discussed, why doesn't the team just use the west sideline?

    Coach apparently likes having the sun in his eyes on the east side.

    I think Pollard said 30% of FBS teams do it. I agree that it's really weird, but if other places do it with little or no trouble than we should be able too. Maybe they will change sidelines in the future to prevent it.

    Re: On a lighter note...

    I thought Rhoads said in a presser before the game that the seniors specifically asked to run through the inflatable tunnel one last time. I can understand that, since it's what they've done for 4-5 years. I'm guessing it will be different for next year.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    If CPR wanted ISU to be on the other side, we would be.

    Re: On a lighter note...

    There are a lot of pros to being on east side: you are the team that is constantly on television, you are the student section side not the visitors, you are on the side of where player family members get tickets, and I'm sure there are more.

    West side? No sun and no longer have to cross the field.

    I think the only way the team ever switches to the west is if the stadium is reseated which probably will only happen again with a south end zone expansion.

    But who knows...
