    Paper sacks

    WHO channel 13 TV on sports this morning showed a group of "fans" wearing paper sacks over their heads yesterday at the game. Was this just an isolated incident or did anyone see any more of this scattered throughout the crowd? Hope not. While it may seem funny, I wouldn't want to be a player looking up in the stands to see that.

    Re: Paper sacks

    I think it was isolated. I never even saw those people.

    Re: Paper sacks

    I never saw any of those people and if I had - would have politely asked them if they could...

    A. Remove the sacks.
    B. Take their sacks and go home.

    Re: Paper sacks

    I was sitting next to them, and it was one guy that passed it around row to row, encouragine people to wear them. I told the guy politely dont be foolish, and dont make urself look stupid. Only very few people decided to put them on.

    The sportscast showed a clip of it a couple times along with clips of empty seats and fans leaving at halftime. So pretty much making a point that fans aren't happy or have given up on the season.

    Re: Paper sacks

    So....what's worse? Leaving at halftime or sitting through the remainder of the game with a paper bag on your head.

    For the record, I stayed until the end of the 3rd quarter, and I just couldn't stomach it any more.

    Re: Paper sacks

    I can understand where the paper sack fans are coming from even though i don't agree with what they did. Can anybody honestly say they are proud to be an ISU football fan right now? Is there ANYTHING positive going on in the program besides Milan Moses? I'm sure Coach Mac will have a positive stat or two this week. Right now being an ISU football fan is like riding a moped or fat chick. It's fun until your friends see you on one.

    Re: Paper sacks

    I was on the far south edge of the student section (actually right by Coach McDermott and Coach Smith from b-ball), and I saw someone with a paper sack on his/her head a little ways south of me. He was also offering paper sacks to anyone else who wanted one. I think he ended up with one taker.

    I don't like it but it makes a solid point.
