    Re: What do you think of ISU-KSU at Arrowhead

    Not sure how I feel about it.

    Probably depend how it all goes down as far as pricing, ticket availability, personal finances as it approaches.

    Can't argue that KC is a fun time and the FSU game in '02 was off the hook. I'd much rather this be a non-conference game ala the Eddie Robinson Classic. Playing somebody you play every year, but at neutral site, doesn't quite drum up the interest that an ACC, SEC or PAC 10 would. JMO

    I'm sure that JP wouldn't do it unless is was a financial boon for ISU. Somebody made a great point in the other thread that although this might be a neutral/win proposition in 2009 (losing a game in the Jack bites no matter how you slice it), in 2010 we should fill the coffers nicely. 7 home games and a healthy payout for a KSU "road" game. From that perspective - I love this idea.

    Definitely want to go. It's pretty much just the logistics and costs that'll make the difference.

    Re: What do you think of ISU-KSU at Arrowhead

    I would LOVE it if we weren't giving up a home game but as it is I am just lukewarm to it. I am sure I will go both years but I think alot depends on the season ticket issues that need to be worked out around it.

    I'll give it a try. Fun to always tailgate in other places....plus it could be as close to a bowl game as we get if things aren't going well. And KC is typically 10 degrees warmer than Ames.

    I don't really like the thought of giving up a conference home game but it will be nice to make the trip there for 2 years in a row.

    I understand. And that would be great this year. But Oct 3 usually isn't much of a problem.

    Re: What do you think of ISU-KSU at Arrowhead

    I think this definately has the potential to be pretty good for us. Iowa State fans in general seem to travel to Kansas City pretty well. While I agree with those that have said it would maybe be a little better for a non-conference game, I do like the idea of it.

    But on the flip side, we lose a game in a road atmosphere.

    Re: What do you think of ISU-KSU at Arrowhead

    With the way that ISU fans flock to KC, is it really the same as giving up a home conference game? Yes, I know not everyone can make it, but the team should still have terrific support, and they will get it two years in a row, as opposed to having to play in a hostile environment in 2010.

    Having this game in KC makes it more financially sound for those of us that live way out of state to make it to the game, since it is much, much cheaper to fly into KC than to DSM.

    Re: What do you think of ISU-KSU at Arrowhead

    Ok on it but there's the big X-factor which is money and other events. When I buy season tickets the fam knows we are locked in for those games. Who knows what the price of gas will cost, what else will be happening in my life. But what ever is best for the program.

    Re: What do you think of ISU-KSU at Arrowhead

    I don't want to loose a home game....if KSU just wants to give up a home game I would be for it. But if we have to loose a game in Ames, i don't like it.

    For you NASCAR fans, apparently there's a race in KC the next day.

    Sorry, if this has already been mentioned. Didn't have time to read all of both threads.
