    @ Tulsa 2013 question

    Is there any chance we can buyout this game and replace it w/ someone new? I can't imagine either team is looking forward to seeing each other 3 times in 13 months

    Re: @ Tulsa 2013 question

    I would really love that. Would make people less angry about this rematch and would allow us to have another home game. And with the way attendance has been we could probably afford it. Not to mention it would be super awesome to have 7 home games as opposed to 6. It would have to be a FBS team though since we already play UNI, which is unlikely.

    I actually wouldn't mind to FCS teams either since I think anything less than 7 wins would be considered a failure anyway.

    Instead of a buyout, shouldn't both teams want to mutually cancel the game and schedule someone else?

    No you know how tough it is for Tulsa to get BCS teams to play us at our place?

    Re: @ Tulsa 2013 question

    Now this I can get behind. I can't complain about having to play them in a bowl because we didn't play well enough this year to deserve better IMO.

    BUT... I would love it if we could get out of playing them again next year. I would think that if both Tulsa and ISU can find replacements to play at home, they would do this.

    I doubt it's a possibility. Our non-conference slate is screwy next year anyway with two bye weeks. That's thanks to conference realignment.

    From an Iowa State perspective, we get 3 OOC games. Iowa and a FCS teams. Each year we have 1 game to play a fresh face. To have Tulsa be that "fresh face" after playing you twice the year before is kind of lame for us. No offense to your team.

    It doesn't happen often because it shouldn't happen, no offense. We have way more money now than we did 8 years ago when this was scheduled and I think the home game is worth more than what the buyout would cost.

    You would think that the Liberty Bowl payout, a sold-out JTS, and the TV money for the home game would at least offset whatever the buyout would be.

    Re: @ Tulsa 2013 question

    Mutual buyout virtually impossible as I can't see Tulsa finding a similar type of team to play at their place next year.

    We buyout or play and I assume we'll just play the game.

    A buyout is a waste of money, just play the game.

    It's a road game after all. I'm personally not impacted on the game next year. The rematch this year is a buzzkill.

    Depends. If we could find someone to come play here in ames (thats the real trick on this short notice), it could potentially be worth it based on increased revenue. If nothing else it adds value for season ticketholders.

    We shouldn't be playing AT Tulsa anyhow.

    Buy it out JP. Get another home game.

    I'd rather play a home game, but if we have to beat Tulsa for the 3rd time in a year, then so be it.
