    How much would you spend if iowa state went to a national title game

    Okay first off, for all the trolls I'm not saying Iowa state will go to a National title game this year or anything like that but me and a friend were talking about how much you'd be willing to spend to get there.

    We assumed that tickets would cost at least $200+ for 1 ticket (upper nose bleeds) and then flight+hotel. But since its a national title game all of those things are harder to acquire for cheap. I'd be willing to spend at least $3-4k I think for me and my dad

    So, cyclone fans travel very well but how many fans do you think would pony up big money to get to a title game?

    Whatever it takes to get there, and I would also make sure they were very good seats.

    It's a once-in-a-lifetime thing. I'd blow my rainy day fund on it.

    Whatever the cost would be for tickets, hotel, transportation, and fun money.

    As a college student, lets just go with all my money. Which probably is still less then 1000. Student loans FTW

    50" HDTV, $700. Directv subscription, $80. Getting to watch ISU win the NCAA, priceless.

    No chance I would be able to go on such short notice. I have to plan out my vacation months in advance.

    Re: How much would you spend if iowa state went to a national title game

    It's always nice to dream. That's why I tie some $ up every year with the NCAA lottery for Final 4 tickets. If I get tickets, then I can look forward to a great trip if we make it. If not, then I can look forward to seeing what the answer this question is for the 4 teams that make it and I sell my tickets...

    If ISU made the Final Four, I would be there.

    Same for the upcoming college football playoff or the Sugar Bowl now.
