    It might be colder but it's hard to imagine a more miserable game than the 1991 Snow Bowl against Colorado. I'm sure there are a few stalwart fans on this board that were among the 2000 or so that actually made it to the Jack.

    I was there, kind of. My dad, brother and I drove up from Ankeny at halftime. We were listening on the radio and since the game was actually close we decided to come see a possible upset.

    I'm surprised you could make it from Ankeny
    I wanted to go but had worked the night before. I barely made it home and decided it would be stupid to drive the country roads in white out conditions to freeze at a football game.

    Challenge accepted. I think the bitterly cold temperatures are what is making me the most excited about this game. That and the thought of a Big XII win...

    Re: UPDATED FORECAST: Coldest game in JTS history?

    The Colorado game was the coldest experience of my life. It's the first time i ever was hoping Colorado would just blow us out and get it over with so we could get the heck out of there. However, i was prepared to stick it out.

    Let's just bring back ties for this game and call it off.

    Can't we just have Bill Self and Hoiberg play 1 on 1 and the winner of that wins the football game too. I'm actually serious. I'd pay money to watch this happen.

    I was there and about 1,996 others. I was trying to get to my tickets through about 5 layers of clothes and the guy at the gate said forget it go on in. We had a riot frozen hands and all.

    Yeah, but that's back when you could sneak a fifth or a 12 pack into the game. Nobody really cared as long as you didn't get out of hand. We would just walk in go up to the top in Section O and sit and drink. Nobody was in about 15-20 yards of us and that was on a nice day for football. So that's how far this program has come.
