    ISU IS NOT trying to get out of game vs UNLV - Pollard Confirms

    So we were eating at Hooters tonight for dinner, and the guy that I was with said he heard from a member of the Des Moines Cyclone Club said he heard that ISU is trying to get out of its game with UNLV there.

    Has anyone else heard this, and if so can you fill us in?

    I didn't know what to think of it.

    Re: ISU trying to get out of game vs UNLV???

    I have not heard anything about it, but after what they did last year, it wouldn't surprise me one bit.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Re: ISU trying to get out of game vs UNLV???

    I think that was mentioned on here a few months ago. Personally I don't understand it. Obviously we want another home game ($$$) but you won't find many D1 teams worse than UNLV to play. Plus it gives the fans a chance to travel to a nice destination since we haven't been to a bowl game in a few years. Be interesting to see what happens.

    For those of us out west, it is a good chance to see a game and squander some of our hard earned $$$$ as well if you like.

    We're thinking about going to this game so I hope they don't. Or at least give us plenty of warning.

    Re: ISU trying to get out of game vs UNLV???

    I think it would be better for the Clones to get another home game. I am usually not all for having a bunch of cupcakes on the schedule for home games, but it has worked for other teams in our conference.

    That, and I just have no respect for UNLV. Yea, Vegas is nice, but I really don't feel like going out there and blowing money I don't have!

    Re: ISU trying to get out of game vs UNLV???

    I'm planning on making the trip to Vegas to watch the game so hopefully it doesn't get cancelled. Of course if we don't play out there I'm still planning on going to Vegas. Baby needs a new pair of shoes.

    I went to Vegas game last time, and you can safely say their fans are as bad as their team. They make Hawkeye fans look intelligent. No joke.

    Like the others have said, I'm planning on going to the game and was looking forward to a nice fall getaway weekend during busy season at work...

    I think it might be too late to call that one.. I think Chizik should take the boys down there and unleash the biggest win of his career early in his second season on a team that showed no class in Ames a few years ago.

    I hope not, I've got plans for going there.
    Vegas loves me (or maybe it's my money).

    Re: ISU trying to get out of game vs UNLV???

    This keeps popping up, why cancel this game? Who you going to schedule in it's place? So the UNLV coach made an *** of himself in '06, so what!
    The last time we played UNLV in Vegas we had a "Bowl game" following, huge numbers followed the Clones to Vegas. Pep rallies and a tailgate that was first class by Alumni Assoc and NCC. Clone fans numbered in the Thousands not hundreds.

    I'll see you in Vegas in Sept 08
