    Perhaps there is some financial benefit other than a direct payment from UT.

    If there isn't a financial benefit, there must be some other reason to do it. If one wants to go down this path, one might ask if there is any bigger-picture longer-term benefit in building up good will or working with UT.

    I guess it's not about subscriptions, it's about people watching another game on Cyclones.tv either way. Increase the brand of Cyclones.tv.

    It absolutely blows for out of state fans but I guess he wants to go hard in the state.

    Possible that we owe Texas from a previous deal? So technically we're not "getting paid", but instead we're paying back. Or it could be possible that there are future considerations involved that we're not getting paid right now but there is something working for the future.

    Asking that question is worthy of a nut punch.

    Yea... I bet there was a parade to go with the... cultural and sporting events and the big concert from the Vienne Philharmonic.

    That said... lets just replace Iowa on our schedule with Minnesota... problem solved.

    OK, admittedly it wasn't the best analogy...however, the celebrations you linked were in Bosnia, who shot him and got what they wanted, not in Austria, whose leader got killed.

    Agreed. And I don't buy the family friendly atmosphere argument either. I would be really PO'd if you aren't allowed out at halftime and couldn't buy beer in the stadium

    Seriously, you can't forego drinking for 3-4 hours without getting really ****** off?

    For most fans, football is an excuse to drink. With that in mind, probably not.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    FIFY. But seriously, I was a fan of football WAY longer before I could drink, and I feel like that is probably the case with most guys.

    Re: Pollard on KXNO

    I don't care either way on the booze thing, I can see both sides of it.

    I think the current re-entry deal is a joke. I am assuming it stems from back when we were god-awful and no one would even go in the stadium if they couldn't re-enter. We are better than that now and the 3rd quarter atmosphere suffers from the rule.

    Re: Pollard on KXNO

    Two points:
    1. I would expect that in the end there will be 2-3 means of going over or under University. This was mentioned by a poster last winter and I can verify the post.

    2. Pollard has hung tough on the alcohol sales. This statement is no different that one he has made many times.

    Dumb comment on alcohol sales. If 9 other Big 12 schools do it you know he'll do it, too. Never say never.
    No alcohol in stadium just means the tailgaters drink more before going to the stadium and then finish up after the game.

    Being seen in a texas market is worth something.

    Did he apologize for hiring mcdoormat?
