    Morgantown, WV

    Anyone here? Disappointed with the tailgating so far. Hopefully it picks up soon!

    Yeah two crappy teams. You may be the only one there. Report back on beer prices in the stadium.

    Re: Morgantown, WV

    Why do we support our team in record numbers even though we suck? What, specifically, can we point to that other teams can not? We can't use the excuse of no pro teams because WV doesn't have any, either.

    Was thinking the same thing. Reminds me of ISU-Mizzou in '04 here minus the crappy conditions.

    There is nothing I would rather do on a Saturday then spend 6 hours grilling and getting drunk before going into a stadium surrounded by 55,000 Cyclones and cheering on ISU. Winning is nice, but it is far from the only thing.

    It's cause there isn't that much to do in Iowa.

    Have you set anything on fire yet? That should get things going. I'd start with something simple like a lounge chair or small love seat...

    Unless you live in a coastal or mountain state this could potentially be said about any state. But having lived in several of each I'd take Iowa any day! It might truly be that "you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone", but I miss Iowa. And when you look at our conference mates Iowa is much better than OK, KS, WV, and especially this god-forsaken failed-nation, treeless hayfield called Texas!

    Before CPR got to Ames that wasn't the case. 2 years in a row we were going for a Big 12 North title and JTS had 35000 in it for big games. Macs last game drew about the same numbers. The athletic dept was begging people to come to games. Yes the past few years have been different but low attendance isn't too far in the past.
