    Saturday Debate

    I'm debating options for next Saturday's game. I didn't get tickets in time and do not feel like scalping tickets for the UNI game so I have a couple options.

    1st question. Will any bars have the game available in Ames? Welch Ave or Charlie Yokes possibly?

    Option #1 Come up to Ames, tailgate and get wasted with friends in 99 degree weather and maybe pull up the game via my IPad at a friends house and pass out on a couch at 2am

    Option #2 Stay at my WDSM house with the AC blasting and watch football all day with Cyclone FB on my big screen at night and sleep in my own bed.

    Alot of my best friends are gone from Ames. I definitely have places to stay, but they aren't the friends I choose to hang with regularly.

    Does it make me a bad Cyclone if I stay in Wdsm and wait for the Iowa game to come to Ames?

    Option 1 is the only option.

    There are no bad Cyclones. Option 2
    Pick your battles in order to fight another day.









    I realized that we are just tough young men. Resilient, really, Morris adds. A lot of people probably would have tucked their tail and tried to make moves but this group stuck together. Everybody is on the same page and that really told me a lot about the type of season we can have.

    Personally, my top choice is always to get inside the stadium, but if I couldn't do that I would definitely stay inside to watch from the couch. Option 2

    Option 1. You never know, you might be able to find a cheap ticket from somebody up there.

    Im sure I have a drunk friend that won't go and sell for cheap. I don't want to sit in the student section as a 24 year old and I would way rather sit on my couch and watch then sit in those god awful hillside spots.

    Re: Saturday Debate

    If I wasn't going to the game I'd stay home, crack open a few brews, watch the game in comfort at home. I love tailgating, but mostly because it precedes a football game.

    That being said I think once the game starts you'll find someone that wants to unload a hillside ticket or something for cheap.




    Eyes closed, head first, can't lose.

    This is why I love away games almost as much as home games. Parking on the couch for an entire Saturday with a big-screen HDTV and the drinks/food that you want is about as good as it gets. Throw in an ISU road win on ESPN and you've got a perfect day.

    Re: Saturday Debate

    If these were your good friends I would say option 1 but given the circumstance I think option 2 is a no brainer

    i have great friends that will tailgate, but they are more interested in just tailgating for the entire time I believe.
