    The new club section sucks (my review)

    I had to much going on during the Thursday night game to attend. So it was my first chance in the club section. First off for the much money it's a joke.

    1. The food was horrible. They had Kilbasa's (SP) and they had rock hard dry roast beef. The sides were potato chip's and dip and Pasta salad. So basically you were screwed if you had kids.

    2. The employee's were jerks. My brother came over and got my daughter. She is 4. When I informed the door guy that my brother is going to bring my daughter back and drop her off at our seats with me he said he could not allow my brother in to drop her off. No just a little info. My brother is in the suites across the stadium. It's not like he was trying to score some crappy club food.

    So basically I had to go out and buy 2 pizza's and some nachos for my family to eat. The club itself is nice in side and the Ice Cream cones in Red and gold were a nice touch. However the rest of it was no good.

    I would have been happy with hotdogs and hambergers. Any type of Football tailgating food would have done.

    So needless to say. I am not a thrilled contributer. I did however like the game.

    So basically for a huge donation, you get some "free" food? Glad I cannot afford it :)

    I wouldn't expect the club section to cater to children. How many other "kids" were in that section out of curiosity? I would expect it to be minimal at best, but maybe I am wrong?

    You should be glad. I would be happy to pay less and pay for my food. The old club section was better.

    It's clear no matter what you do, even when winning, not everyone will be happy.

    As for the rest, send a note to JP with your complaints. I'm sure he'd love to hear them.

    There are a ton of kids in the club section. The people with the kids next to us had the same review. The better upgrade some crap by the end of the season or Jamie is going to have half the seats filled in the future.

    That would suck, but I'm sure that JP or the staff their would love to address this. I'm glad you spend the money to be there, you should have better quality. The only suggestion I would have is to move to the open seats between the 40s, looks like there are plenty... j/k of course.

    Re: The new club section sucks (my review)

    I sat in the JT Club for the Thursday night game. I thought it was a nice experience. Good food (chicken sandwiches and pork loin). Now in comparison, I was invited to the Iowa game last weekend in their suites. The food was not as good (sub sandwiches and nachos, and pizza at halftime) but they had free beer, which was great!

    Now the only time I get these opportunities is when I'm invited but if I had the money I would rather sit in the crowd for the game experience. I love that atmosphere. The club is great though for women and kids. You don't have some drunk yelling cuss words around kids and that would be the only way my wife would actually attend a football game.

    ISU can improve their club by giving everyone free drinks, soda and beer.

    Why are you screwed with kids? looking for Gerber something?

    1. The food was horrible. They had Kilbasa's (SP) and they had rock hard dry roast beef. The sides were potato chip's and dip and Pasta salad. So basically you were screwed if you had kids.
    My kids, 6 and 1.75, would have loved that food. Well, the beef could have been better prepared, but the menu is good.

    Why couldn't you meet your daughter at the door? It seems like they only let those that are supposed to be in, in.

    -keep.

    I don't see what enjoying the club seats has to do with winning.

    Yes, but how does it compare to a locomotive, which I could also afford?

    Yep, nothing is going to change if you're telling us. Gotta email JP.

    Folks going out of their way, quite often in fact, to find something to gripe about. All summer long, people begged for the arrival of football.

    Now that it's hear and we've started 2-0 to boot - people still find something to rant about.

    It's just a little Hawkish, as some call it.
