    Should it stay or should it go?

    Non student (alumnus) here saying it should go.

    Not because I have something against students, because I think the students should get priority seating in the lower levels, like most of the powerhouse schools.

    Re: Students Cyclone Alley Poll

    i think the student section needs to be more freely run and shouldnt be split in 2... look at duke, model off of that and it will be good, this cyclone alley stuff is nice but its not good enough

    Re: Students Cyclone Alley Poll

    The students need to be spread around Hilton so it will sound louder. Plus it would encourage people who normally don’t stand up and cheer to get out of their seats and make some noise


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    Re: Students Cyclone Alley Poll

    I'm still not seeing any of this as CA's problem. Every student season ticket holder drops $100 on season tickets, and one out of every 3 doesn't show up to the game. The $15 dollar membership to CA isn't keeping anybody out, and if you're a true fan, you'd pay the 15 bucks just for the good seats, regardless of your opinion of the props and structure of CA.

    So if you don't join CA, your not a true fan?

    Re: Students Cyclone Alley Poll

    No I'm not saying that, just saying that $15 extra isn't too much to pay for good seats.

    I almost guarantee you that the problem is not the cost of CA. The problem is that some students just don't want to be a part of all the organized cheers and what not. Believe it or not, some students want to just go and enjoy the game without being forced to wear a certain shirt. The problem is those students don't get the benefit of the doubt, and are forced to sit in the more worse seats.

    Re: Students Cyclone Alley Poll

    I am an alum and actually the idea and proposal for cyclone alley came out of my english class in 2000...I think that was when we had BV in class. Anyway from the orginal concept it grew to maximum with two sides...but success will always fill the stands. Look at Drake/bandwagon fans! You never know how successful the year is going to be so I say keep it going, because eventually those are the next donors after graduation and the experience they have in college helps in the long run for the program. The new has worn off Cy Alley and now we must sustain long term success...keep it the way it is or make it smaller on both end, but ultimately...
    Go STATE!

    I don't feel that any of the cheers are "forced." Nobody walks around making sure you are chanting.

    Re: Students Cyclone Alley Poll

    We should do like Indiana and have people find groups of 4 and then they all get the same assigned seats for each game. They are all spread out through out the stadium. One game is assigned for a "courtside" seats.

    Re: Students Cyclone Alley Poll

    Yeah, I agree the cost is not the problem. But still, CA does no more with organized cheers than a regular student section would do. And being forced to wear a certain shirt shouldn't be too big of a deal.

    CA first year was the 2004-2005 season right? How did it take 5 years to get that idea going?

    Re: Students Cyclone Alley Poll

    I voted no, but there should be an option as to say "not in its current form". I really enjoy what the current CA committee does. I think the only thing they remove is priority seating -- let anyone who has a student ticket sit anywhere in the student section. However! Make it so that you need a Cyclone Alley membership to take advantage of some unique perks, such as road trips.
