    Teams keeping cool, do they have their own equipment?

    Obviously it is going to be stinking hot on Saturday. So the question is, does ISU supply UNI with fans, mist machines, etc. or do they need to provide their own equipment? Just wondered if ISU might have an unfair advantage in this area. The additional players on the Cyclones will probably come into play in the 4th quarter of this game. At least the game isn't at 2 in the afternoon with the sun beating down, that would be rough to play through and sit and watch to.

    I assumed they travel with all that stuff.

    Every team has their own heating and cooling equipment that they bring.

    Either way, I'd hope that even if UNI didn't have adequate equipment that we would supply it for them. You're talking about kids' health.

    I'd rather just put a superior team on the field and beat them with that instead of unfair circumstances.

    I'd assume UNI has that equipment (but agree I'd hope we'd loan them some if they didn't). They play at home in a dome but they have lots of away games that are in stadiums.

    UNI practices almost exclusively outside until it gets cold. The heat won't bother any more than it will Iowa State, they've been practicing in it.

    Re: Teams keeping cool, do they have their own equipment?

    What was the game a number of years ago were the visiting team had cooling equip. & Ia State did not. I want to say it was a Texas school and it may have effected the game.

    I'm trying to figure out how to run a mister at our tent (if the cattle will let me borrow it).

    The one I'm thinking of was TCU in '98. I recall them running all over us with their guys standing in the shade of the west sideline with cooling equipment while ISU was in the sun.
