    Anyone other than Hawkeye fans upset about Iowa tix?

    Im gonna get my season tix as always, so ill be at the game. It doesnt effect me at all, unless i had wanted to make some scratch and sell some extra for double face value.
    I would rather have less people at Iowa and more for others than sell out Iowa and no others.
    Boo Hoo poor Hawgeyes !!!

    I had told my father in law and wife who are both Hackeye fans by the way that i would get them a ticket this year but not now. I can see the reasoning on both sides of this move.

    Re: Anyone other than Hawkeye fans upset about Iowa tix?

    i am a lil upset about it.. i see where he is coming from but i also think the timing was bad..in 2 years i would be for it.. but right now.. i just dont know how this will benefit iowa state.. but so far jamie hasnt made a dumb move.. but no 1 is perfect..


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I get a kick out of the Iowa fans saying Barta should play hardball and cancel the series. That'd look great for their school... "Iowa backs out of series with Iowa State". Not only do they lose a sellout with national TV revenue, they look like babies. Good response hawks.

    I am. If he is really telling us the truth, and he was pretty adamant about it, then there will be thousands of empty seats for the game.

    This may up season ticket sales, but we just came off a 4-8 season. The increase in prices isn't helping either.

    Re: Anyone other than Hawkeye fans upset about Iowa tix?

    I love it.

    Personally, I am disturbed by how many ISU fans buy extra tickets to the Iowa game and sell them to Hackeye fans. Its great to take money from the Hacks, but you're letting the enemy onto our turf too easily.

    Re: Anyone other than Hawkeye fans upset about Iowa tix?

    I think it also puts those cyclones who were on the fence, but could always get Iowa tickets from their buddy who has season tickets onto the season ticket holder side.

    I know it's already knocked my parents into the season ticket holder status, since I can't buy single game tickets, and I think it's great.

    Re: Anyone other than Hawkeye fans upset about Iowa tix?

    This doesn't affect me at all...no way if I requested a ticket to the iowa game they were going to get all the way down to me on the low end of the NCC.

    And from my position it's a great move. But that is certainly just my position i guess....

    Re: Anyone other than Hawkeye fans upset about Iowa tix?

    A little bit. It's not so much of one thing for me. It's the Iowa game thing, and the $200 hike in season ticket sales, with the encouraged hike in donor-ship that I did, and then then the parking thing. A big combination and alot all at once.

    But as for the Iowa thing - I'm a little miffed. I've tried to get my bothers and dad together for the game, and now that's just not going to happen for the brothers being Hawk fans, they aren't footing the bill for more season tix. I know, I know - I shouldn't let Hawk fans in. But in the same breath, it's family and this little endeavor gets some Clone fans in to Kinnick as well.

    Overall, I think it's a very risky venture on a guaranteed payday and afraid it'll backfire.

    Iowa threw Mizzou under the bus when they canceled and rightfully so. Agree, Iowa would look like a bunch of whiners, won't happen.

    Re: Anyone other than Hawkeye fans upset about Iowa tix?

    I would love to see the high and mighty Iowa Hiccups try to pull out of the series with Iowa State. You talk about looking bad, you talk about being the laughing stock not just of the state of iowa... they would be the laughingstock of the entire US of A!!

    Go ahead whining squawk fans and cancel the series, it will make my day!

    BTW I support Jamie Pollard 150%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Anyone other than Hawkeye fans upset about Iowa tix?

    I live out of state and wasn't going to the game anyway, but I think it is a bad decision. They raised season ticket prices and the team was 4-8 last year. I think the idea of only selling them to NCC members is a better one. They could force people to show some sort of membership card when entering the gate if they were worried about people re-selling them.

    Re: Anyone other than Hawkeye fans upset about Iowa tix?

    There's never a good time to raise ticket prices. I've been in JP's postition before and if you're going to make an increase, make it a good one and there's no sense waiting. You're just delaying the inevitable resistance that you're going to get sooner or later anyway.

    JP's laying it on the line. Are ISU fan's going to support us or not? The price he's asking is mid range, not high end.

    That's certainly your choice. I'm not wealthy by any means, but I'm not blaming that on Jamie either. If you can't afford it, you can't afford it. Don't blame Jamie for that.
