    I think it was 4-12 in conference pretty much every year, but yea it was terrible. Pretty sad going to games in Hilton and expecting to lose all the time on our own court.

    Well...according to the post I was responding to you would not expect there would be so many empty seats. Your comments sort of make my point for me. Thank you...I guess.

    Re: Tickets Sold Out

    So for someone new to the whole process, I was able to put down the money on July 1st for my "spot in line" to get tickets. Am I basically crossing my fingers? Malchow said he expects 99% renewal??? am I basically in the hoping 1 percent? Cause I don't like my odds.

    I think that is right. All I know is we sat through the McDermott years and am glad we hung on. We will not be on the outside looking in. Now the team just has to perform.

    Trying to not sound like a jerk but I wouldn't like your chances either. I think it would take some serious drastic life events from ISU fans to not renew this season. These last few and with such a bright future, these are the seasons us fans have been waiting for

    Looking like all seats will become donation seats. It is like buying a house in San Francisco - they sell for above their asking price.

    Tickets didn't even sell out last year. Everyone could renew and we're still going to have new season ticket holders this year for basketball. I honestly think your chances are a lot better than what some people on here are saying. Is everyone going to get tickets? No. But if you got your order in you have a better chance of getting them than not getting them.

    I would think that you will actually have a decent chance. Last year the tickets WERE NOT sold out. That means some season tickets were available for the upcoming season to new ticket holders and those that add a few additional tickets. So I am just estimating but say there were 10,000 season tickets last year. That would mean about maybe 500-1,000 were available for new/additional (lots of tickets held for recruits/families/student-athletes/athl dept/etc) + that 1%=100 free'd up tickets.

    Basically my point is you're not a part of the 1% because there were more season tickets available for sale at the start of last year still.

    Re: Tickets Sold Out

    That makes sense. I just figured they were really close to selling out last year so there weren't many to buy to begin with.

    How many season tickets do you have right now? Just 1 or more than that?
