    There's a fine line between bravery and stupidity. You might be standing on that line.

    You guys are AWESOME! Just hope your voices are limber enough to yell all game. It's got to be tough to be out in the cold for 34 straight hours.

    I would say they crossed it a long time ago. It was one thing for people to camp out for Michigan where it was cold, but that was a 4:00 game and was probably a bigger deal. It was also on the weekend and they started much later. This game while it won't be as cold as yesterday is much colder and as big of a deal as it is it isn't as big as Michigan

    Wow, that is crazy... You guys will definitely deserve the front row after this effort and if the Cyclone Alley head members try to kick you out of your spots Team Cyclone Fanatic will kick their *****.

    Re: Camping out for the Iowa game

    What I always think is crazy is sometimes, the difference between being outside in the cold for 30+ hours and maybe 5-6 hours is only a few rows at the game. i know, there is a "I'm the bigger fan" bragging rights, but sometimes the investment isn't worth payout in regards to seats, etc.

    Wonder how much free pizza they'd give you if you actually camped out at Carver?
