    Exclamation Three Reasons for Saturday - A Plea

    This is my plea to my fellow Cyclones. I really hope we all turn out Saturday and fill up JTS. I know it has been a painful and disappointing year, but let me give you three reasons why we should all be there.

    Our Seniors. We have some great kids who have poured their lives into this program for four or five years. Big Play Curvey, Deandre Jackson, Shawn Moorehead, Jon Davis, to name a few. There are many more, but it would be really sad that after all these guys have done and all the great moments they have given us if their last memory of ISU is an empty stadium on Senior Day.

    Our Coach. Love him or not. Dan has brought ISU a long way in his tenure. We can argue about should it have taken as long, or should he have been on a shorter leash or if he should still be coach. There can be no argument that our program has improved in talent and reputation. While Dan was not able to deliver the next level of success we all craved, he is leaving the program in a far better position than when he arrived. Dan has also shown himself to be a class act who has and remains a great ambassador for ISU. Let's show him our appreciation and respect and fill JTS.

    Our Next Coach. We all are anxious to get our new coach started and we all have our favorite candidates. This is our opportunity to make a statement to the coach that JP is attempting to bring to Ames. Show him that the support will be there to build our program. If we fill the stadium that makes a huge statement to the prospective coach about the passionate fan base for ISU football. What does it say if we have a half empty stadium. Let's help JP get the best coach we can by demonstrating the type of fans Cyclones are.

    Come on fellow Cyclones. Tickets are cheap, no rain, no excuses, bring a friend and Pack the Jack.

    Re: Three Reasons for Saturday - A Plea

    I hope the stadium is full as well. Based on my message on Ticket exchange I would say attendance will not be good. I have conflicts and am not able to attend and am selling 4 tix (Section E on 40 yard line with seatbacks) plus parking pass for $75 for the package. I haven't even got a sniff of anyone wanting them. Wow.

    Price just reduced to $60. Same as price of hillside tickets. These are good seats on West side and wind is blocked by press box.

    Re: Three Reasons for Saturday - A Plea

    I would rather you didn't have to plea for people to be there on Saturday. In my opinion, if a plea is the only reason they come they probably won't stay for the whole game anyway. I would rather have 15,000 fans the whole game then have 36,000 at the start and 15,000 at the end. If people still haven't realized how important Saturday is, they won't by Saturday.

    Hey, RKHeil

    I'll take your tickets to Jack Trice and try to sell them for you if you can't unload them this week.

    Re: Three Reasons for Saturday - A Plea

    On the drive home Marty made the comment that it won't be pack the jack, but sack the jack as he guaranteed that no one will show up Saturday.

    Proving him wrong about Cyclone fans is a fourth reason.

    Re: Three Reasons for Saturday - A Plea

    My prediction is about 25,000 maybe less people. As I've said before, I'm expecting a blowout at halftime, at which point the OSU Michigan game will be too intriguing for me to stay.

    Re: Three Reasons for Saturday - A Plea

    Already gave my tickets away...got a conflict and with nothing at stake, I see no need to break my prior commitment to get there.

    And before you start ripping on me, I live in Bettendorf and have made every game (even that ridiculous Thursday night Toledo game after which l didn't get home until 3 a.m.). It's a long drive for lousy football.

    I doubt a lot of people will show, especially considering we're not playing for anything, it will be cold, and OSU and Michigan play at 2:30.

    Yeah, Marty was ripping on ISU for this Saturday big time on his show...the entire time. I hope we have a good showing - one that we can shove right up Marty's...

    Haven't listened to M&M since they took over except for the first interview with JP. These posts just confirm my decision for me. Marty is just your typical East Coast elitist. He thinks the state revolves around the Hawks and is annoyed when he has to spend any time talking about ISU.

    Are you responding to the good thread that was posted, or are you trying to sell ticktes.

    Did you hear the broadcast where they were just screaming at each other over this. One of them was getting really ****** over the whole thing.

    I myself am going to be there, and may make the sign with the my favorite quote used for my sig. I dont care if there are 30,000 or 50,000, I will pay my respects either way.
