    I see nothing wrong w/ students getting free tickets. More schools should do this.

    Re: NIU giving away tickets for free

    I guess I should have a problem with them providing a service for their students?
    Should it be worse when I consider that they do this for their bowl game every year?

    Sure, it's awful that they aren't functioning like they want to make a profit, but that isn't supposed to be the idea behind college sports anyway.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    How is this a mockery? They want people there. They want students to take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity for that school. I'm sure Iowa State would subsidize it if they were in it.


    My teams: (as of 9/20/13)
    Cleveland Browns: 0-2 - .000
    Cleveland Indians: 83-70 - .542
    Cleveland Cavs: 24-58 - .293
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 0-2 - .000

    9/22/18 & 9/7/19
    Akron and Iowa State

    Absolutely. NIU didn't ask to crash the BCS party, but now that they are there, they're at least trying to do it right.

    taking the money they'll make and passing it on to the students. Good plan and a way to keep fans.

    Re: NIU giving away tickets for free

    NIU has to pay for 17,500 tickets anyways whether or not they can sell them (avg attendance was less than that), why not get some students there?

    Re: NIU giving away tickets for free

    I wonder if ISU ever went to a BCS bowl would they be able to sell 17,500 tickets? I hope I get to see it in my lifetime.

    Heck yes, probably double that. We buy season tickets now just so we have priority picking when we're in the NC game.
