    I wish there was a way to

    actually know how many on here actually attend Iowa State basketball games. I have a feeling that many on here (and even more on the other boards) don't actually grace us with their presence at Hilton on a regular basis. It would make reading a lot of the "MCDERMOTT MUST WIN NEXT YEAR OR ELSE" and "WHY AREN'T WE PLAYING (fill in the blank) MORE?" and "MCDERMOTT NEEDS TO LEARN HOW TO YELL AT THE REFS" posts a little more tolerable.

    I have attended every home men's game that my student tickets allow me to. I am not one of the "haters" on this board.

    I've missed two games this year. Fortunately one of them was SDSU.

    Re: I wish there was a way to

    This has one of those "I'm a better fan because" or "My voice holds more weight because" type of tones to it. I always enjoy these threads.


    PS. We attend most games, although this year, we've missed more than any other prior season.

    Re: I wish there was a way to

    Does watching the game from home make them any less of a fan in your mind?

    Re: I wish there was a way to

    I've been to all the games covered under the student tix plus Houston-Baptist and I don't remember what other break game (not SDSU thank God).

    Have student tickets. Hit up one extra break game. Missed one to go deer hunting. Have also missed a couple due to night class.

    Re: I wish there was a way to

    I'll definitely go to most of the games when I'm going to ISU in 2 years.
    Sucks living 2 hours away and only going to a couple games a year, but that doesn't make me less diehard of a fan.

    Re: I wish there was a way to

    What is this hater phenomenon? I think many misdiagnose it, naturally. Say something that is not all flowers and bunnies? Hater! Not always the case.

    I like facts (not hater), reality (not hater) and a rational debate (not hater).

    I don't like wanting to fire a coach at the first sign of trouble (hater), degrading players (hater), homers and the eternal "wait 'til next year" fans.

    Re: I wish there was a way to

    Can't attend in person, but I've watched every minute of every game except for SDSU, because I was gone for the holidays.

    At least I'm pretty sure this is the case...between Clone Zone and ESPN FC, I think I've seen nearly everything this year.

    I'm a junkie...we could go 0-25 and I'd watch every minute. I'm not saying that makes me a better fan, it's just who I am.

    It's pathological, I know.

    Re: I wish there was a way to

    Does this mean I need to get a permission slip to miss the game tomorrow? I have bowling league and I'm still looking for that elusive 600 series...

    Not at all, as long as they're still making a financial contribution to the athletic department.

    Re: I wish there was a way to

    haven't attended a single game this year for the first time in a long time.

    wife, newborn, work, living a couple hours away ... all adds up. However, I'd be willing to be I have a lot more "invested" in the athletic program than the average student ticket.

    and I do watch or listen to every game
