    Excellent post.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Re: Morgantown, WV

    Sadly, it looks like those of you who made the trip are going to get less than Morgantown's best effort when it comes to tailgating. I guess the combination of last season, this season, the students out of town, etc have put a damper on support for the team.

    Several of you posted earlier that you don't know how it is that you all are able to keep filling the stadium and keep your support for the team so high given the poor seasons. I wish I knew how you do it too. I and several others posted in a thread on our boards about an ISU fan who was psyched up about making the RV trip. Several debbie downers asked what he was so excited about given the teams records. Several of us pointed out that that was what true fans do...they support the team in the good times and the bad. Seems as though we have a lot we could learn from you all about being a fan. Kudos to you all.

    Talking about how great our fans are is literally the best way to become loved on CF. Congratulations.

    It's a great way to see the country and meet people from around the country. Everyone I have met so far in Morgantown has been great.

    This is true. Our tailgating atmosphere is what drives our large attendance. Even more amazing is this season's tailgating sucked. I think we had one good tailgating day thanks to the weather and schedule:

    Hottest kickoff in ISU history for UNI
    Great tailgating day for iowa
    Thursday game for Texas
    11am kickoffs for OSU and TCU
    Coldest game ever for Kansas.

    We made the best of what we had, tailgating all day for both the extreme temperatures and tailgating at 5am for the 11am games, but i'm looking forward to next year's better schedule.

    Yeah, and there's no pro team as well, but regardless, I agree that Iowa is a great place.

    Not sucking up. Fact is our fans have gotten a little spoiled over the last 10 years. Perhaps it's new fair weather fans because of the success...but many do not remember our tough times. You all are in tough times and still bring the support....as I said kudos.

    Yes, after the game I walked over to The Varsity and was the only ISU fan there. I was invited to a table of WVU fans in less than 1 minute.
