    KC= no home field advantage?

    First of all, just hear me out on this one because I believe everyone's initial thoughts are probably "Iowa State fans travel well to KC."

    Does anyone remember when we played Ohio State in men's basketball a few years at Wells Fargo in Des Moines? If memory serves me correctly, JP was not in favor of playing in Des Moines because it negated home court advantage for the Clones (I think he also didn't like it because it was the previous administration's idea and not his own).

    My question is this: other than money, how is this agreement with K State any different from the "bad" agreement, according to JP, a few years ago with Ohio State? If we lost home court advantage playing Ohio State in DM, how in the world will we not lose home field advantage against K State in KC???

    We do lose home court advantage, but so do they in 2010.

    It is up to the fans what kind of environment is present in KC. I am pretty sure we can do a good job of filling that place up and screaming our guts out.

    We played the return game in Columbus on OSU's homecourt while our "home game" was in DSM.

    ISU did not receive any bonus revenue for playing a game in Wells Fargo. The Well treated it as a priviledge for ISU to even play there. We lost a ton of revenue playing there. KC is totally differnent becuase we are being paid to move our game there.

    Us losing an away game to a nuetral completely outweights losing a home to a nuetral. We are terrible on the road.

    Re: KC= no home field advantage?

    Ask FSU about what kind of advantage we had down there in 2002.

    In fact, I think more fans showed up for that game than did for the UConn game at the end of the season...

    FSU is a wee bit further away from KC than KSU is. At least, that's what my 2007 map says. The '08 version may show something different. And by '09...well...who knows!



    I like the idea - gets folks talking, generates interest, etc. Not great to lose a home game, but certainly not mad to miss a "true road game" either.

    Big difference in a 45 minute drive and a 20 hour drive.

    And K-State uses what excuse during the Big XII Tournament?

    Often times, their excuse is...

    While we are losing home field we also have the opportunity to pack that place and make it a heck of an atomosphere which we would not have if it were played in Manhatten. I see it as a recruiting tool too in some sense that you can market that you get a chance to play a regular season game in a big time NFL stadium which could potentially get televised as well.

    As a fan I love this. ISU gets a nice payout and we as fans get another reason to hit the road and show everyone just how great of a fan base we have.
