    And to to think several people said we would lose any chances of getting good players to ISU if we let Wayne go.

    why not honor the first person to buy a ticket? I guess I don't see the sense in this. honor the achievment, yes...

    I'm with you Jon, about honoring the person that bought ticket number 10,000. That person has not even bought his/her ticket yet. While nearly 10,000 others bought tickets and have been at the games so far.

    I know why it's being done, to entice more sales. So I won't complain about it. Just a bit different is all.

    Yes the first should be honored. This is a marketing ploy, which I hope works, to get those on the edge to reach a goal.
    Jon, what is Iowa's season ticket total?


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    For the UNI game tonight - 1/3 was empty, 1/3 was UNI fans and less than 1/3 was Iowa students. Things appear a little sad at EIU for hoops.
