    What can ISU do to raise money???

    After being on this board for over 2 years, I have read numerous threads about ISU and the financial situation we are in. Not everyone agrees with the steps we are taking, soo......


    What can ISU do to raise money???

    Finally you can be Athletic Director. What would you do?


    Raising tickets and re-indexing the stadium has everyone mad.

    Putting in luxury boxes has some people in an up-roar.

    Having a game in KC hurts the Ames businesses and isn't a smart idea.

    No large donors are stepping up..

    Win some games? Sometimes an AD needs a little help.

    Or he could start collecting cans during tailgating. The can man doesn't need all that money.

    Re: What can ISU do to raise money???

    1. raise ticket prices and re-index-check
    2. install more luxury boxes-check
    3. push for more large donors-uncheck
    4. continue to get more small money donors eager to donate-check
    -this is going to be big in the long run as if we can get the younger crowd of alumni/fans to start donating small now, hopefully some of those (myself included) will be wealthy enough someday to be included in the large donor category and really help the program.
    5. why not have a CF "sponsered" donation? get every member of this board to donate between $10-$100 every year, pool the money together and lump it into one nice gift for the athletic department every year. not sure how many members are on this board, but i would think if we could do that it would be a nice chunk of change every year.

    Can guy gets all of my cans until he gets some new shorts so I don't have to see the Moose Knuckle.

    Re: What can ISU do to raise money???

    The way to bring in crowds is to schedule tough non-conference games, both basketball and football. SDSU, Kent and UNLV, I mean come on. Basketball is even worse! I get tired of spending gas money to drive to ames twice a week during snow storms to see ISU vs Arkansas Pine-Bluff and other such powerhouses in basketball. If football was opening the season with a BCS middle of the road team, tickets would be sold out. People would be willing to donate more and buy more season tickets. Last year.... highest season ticket sales ever. Why? UNI, IOWA, Texas and OU. Big games mean big crowds.

    Instead of shipping FB games to Kansas City, make Jack Trice and Hilton more of destinations. Put a restaurant/bar each in Hilton and JT, open year-round for the public. Build ISU apparel and collectibles shops in one or both, open on a daily basis, like tons of other schools do. Call them "Cyclone Authentic" stores.
