    Cyclone alley is general admission!

    I'm just tired of people complaining about cyclone alley ruining the student section. You don't need a shirt to sit there people. You show your student ID to sit down there. The only complaint you can have about them is the fact they get the first row reserved for them. They do a lot of work for those seats, so I don't see why it's a big deal. Other than that, everything they do is to help encourage the on the fence students to come to the games. They are trying to get the attendance that you all want so much. I literally cannot think of a single thing that they do that hurts attendance or prevents the "diehards" from sitting up front. All the people that complain about them are using information from past years and not the current stuff.

    Done venting. Remember, everyone here is on your side.

    The free throw distractions are pathetic but really there isn't much that can be helped there.

    Winning is helping. Continuing to win will continue to help.

    I agree they suck. CA could do a better job with them, but getting rid of CA would just make it worse.

    I was a student in the late '90s. Be careful what you ask for in bashing CA, what existed previously was much worse.

    Re: Cyclone alley is general admission!

    That makes me question their actions during my junior year (Fall '09, not that long ago). A good friend of mine (Hawkeye fan, but ISU student - cheers for ISU in every sport when they're not playing Iowa) was wearing an Iowa zip-up sweatshirt over the CA shirt at the Iowa game. They approached him, saying he had to have his CA shirt showing (he had zipped up the sweatshirt by then). I look around and see another kid wearing a Texas zip up, and they didn't say a word to him. Now, I know it's Iowa. And I hate them more than most. But a season ticket-owning ISU student should be able to attend the game in peace. That soured my opinion of them.

    Re: Cyclone alley is general admission!

    All the bashing of Cyclone Alley as a student section (Not the organization) is basically pointless. Yet it happens on this site for no reason at all. You aren't helping things, quit whining and being jerks about it. It stuff that you wouldn't complain about to people's faces (for the most part). You complaining on here only angers the people that are doing their best to try to fix the problems present. Quit crying over spilled milk.

    I should be more specific. This is not a top 25 student section let alone a top 10. If we want to have a top notch student section we need to watch how fans from Duke or Kansas conduct themselves. They are nuts from the start. It is so loud there at the introductions/tip that opposing coaches cant even communicate with their players at times. The rest of the crowd feeds off of the student section. It seems to me like the people in charge of VA do not do enough to get the student section pumped up and ready to go. They should be more concerned about getting our students pumped up instead of how they are going to look on the jumbotron.

    Agreed. Most of our students suck as fans and should learn from those guys. CAC is not to blame for that.

    Re: Cyclone alley is general admission!

    I would like to see if the CA people could somehow push to have the student section wrap around the sides like it did when I was first there. I think the student section running down the whole court like Duke has is awesome.

    That said pretty sure thats bigger than just CA.

    Also, the CA stunts during the time outs are going down hill rapidly. The dance off last game was the dumbest thing I have ever seen.

    This turns people off more than they realize I think.
