    Win and they will come.

    FWIW: that is a very disturbing picture.

    I guess it just doesn't occur to some people that there was a friggin' blizzard in central Iowa yesterday...

    LOL, I think that guy had one too many beers the night before. He should go to Hard liquor, he won't gain as much weight that way.

    Re: Yikes - ISU Slam on CNNSI

    Good find, something has got to change in the student section. I remember when we were freshman we'd wait in line 2 hours before game time to get first 3 rows. Now last night we got to the game at 6:25 and had seats 7 rows up...something is wrong

    Never was a problem selling out when I was a student, we planned our weeks around games. It was a big deal! Just saying.

    Does a blizzard really have that much effect on students coming to the game?
    This is great, no longer is it just an issue on this board. Don't think other schools won't use this in recruiting against ISU.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    I think all of the "hardcore" fans plan their weeks around the games too. At least I know I do.

    Blizzards and ice storms were never and issue when I was going to games. The students showed up. Like brianhos said, students planned around the games, and the student sections were filled up.
