    Tonight's Game...Free to all who can make it?

    Can ISU do this?

    With anywhere between 6-10 inches of snow expected in Central Iowa, ticket holders outside of Ames will probably not be coming.

    Could ISU just open the doors to the residents of Ames, most importantly the students, in hopes to give the Clones a "respectable" crowd vs the ranked Aggies?

    It's a shame that the seniors on this team are having to play in front of sparse crowds during the Big 12 run due to weather. Tonights a great opportunity to get GMAC a signature win, but only 5-6k in attendance isn't very intimidating..

    At least concessions would make something, maybe Cy's Lockeroom to boot.

    Thoughts?

    I agree.
    We need to pack as many fans in there as possible.

    Nah, I'd really like to make money. If people are going to come, they are going to come.

    Pretty much did it back in '91 with the CU football game.

    I think it's a good idea - tickets are already sold, sincerely doubt there will be more than 5 walk-ups.

    Obviously somebody holding a ticket gets priority on the seat. But other than that, if you can make it, you should get in.

    Seriously...open up the balcony. Then filter down after the 12 min media timeout. They do this over the holiday games.

    If you have a ticket...it's your seat. But their will be plenty available in the lower bowl and upper balcony.

    Free it up!!!

    Ames postponed their game. That frees up some townies.

    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Yes, A&M should have been here either last night or this morning. Most likely they've already completed their morning practice on the floor of Hilton to prep for tonight's game.

    Combine that with the fact it snowed 4 straight Saturday's in December when I had plans each time, I don't know what I did to anger the snow gods but it must have been something.

    A bunch of drunks and driving in a snow storm is a recipe for success.

    I expressed the same sentiments about ISU Big xii home games equaling a big storm to my roommate, but then she pointed out that perhaps ISU Big xii home game PLUS big storm EQUALS a big xii win. I'll postpone my displeasure with the weather until about 930 this evening. :-)
