    Why don't we play West Virginia in Indy or Chicago? That might be fun.

    I guess the way I look at it is if you're going to go neutral, you need to go somewhere where both teams' fans can get to fairly easily. I'm no expert on this but I can't imagine Iowa State or West Virginia having huge numbers of alums in either of those cities. Maybe I'm wrong.

    True. But I hate Arrowhead... I was hoping for something a little better. One can dream

    I also think it could be fun to play Okie St. in KC sometime.

    The way I look at it is this, we were what? 1-3 or 1-4 in conference play at home last year. That being said I would rather see a game at someones home stadium so the crowd is really into it. Until we learn to defend the Jack in conference play I don't think it really matters that we try to go to a neutral site for any game IMO.

    To play devil's advocate, never before in Iowa State history has the program sold season tickets like it is doing right now. There is clearly demand for as many home games is possible right? I'd hate to give any of those away but that's just me.

    Wouldn't we be splitting the neutral site games down the middle?

    I don't think the 4-4-1 deal will ever happen, that means ISU will have too many seasons if not all with only 6 home games. there is too much money being lost on the gates of that 7th game. If ISU had all their non-conference at home, minus the Iowa game every other year - then maybe it works, but i think they have road games scheduled out for the next 6 years or so.

    Unless TV money is going so well that other tangibles make it worth it.

    Well yeah but you'd still be losing out on one home game every two years against a Big 12 opponent.

    With our TV money doubling next year or this year or whenever it is. I think we could make do with a neutral site game that we're splitting the money with anyway.

    Also, I'd be a fan of seeing an Oklahoma School in Kansas City.

    A neutral site every year would be better a home game every 2 years though right? Financially speaking. I saw an article stating that Kansas State made 400k more doing our old arrangement at Arrowhead than having a home game. I bet you that number is even better for us.

    EDIT: Well I just looked up that we have 5,000 more seats than Bill Snyder but I still think we would make more by doing it in Arrowhead or wherever. Also, you lose a home game but you also lose a road game.
