    Want free season tickets? Buy them and sell the Iowa game

    It's that easy...you can virtually go to all of the rest of the games for FREE by buying season tickets, selling only the Iowa game to "money is no object" Iowa fans and have free tickets for a lot of good games. What do you think?

    I think I don't want Iowa fans in JTS.

    Industrious, but ultimately self-defeating.

    Re: Want free season tickets? Buy them and sell the Iowa game

    Agreed. I would rather you not buy them at all than to purchase them for the thought of breaking even or making a profit from the Iowa game. I give that a big BOO!

    Great idea, EXCEPT you are then putting Hawk jerks in the seats to root on the bad guys.

    Not to mention the crime rate would skyrocket with all those nasties in town


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    I think that's pretty creative. Not the best way to support your team, but a creative way to finance your tickets.

    Re: Want free season tickets? Buy them and sell the Iowa game

    How many one-off threads are we going to have about this?

    Please folks, when a topic (or 10) already exists about something, it would help keep the board "clean" by adding your thoughts to that thread.

    Re: Want free season tickets? Buy them and sell the Iowa game

    I agree with you guys...don't sell the Iowa game. Just making a point about the value of the tickets. I'd rather have all ISU fans at the game. And I certainly won't miss it. Good comments

    Re: Want free season tickets? Buy them and sell the Iowa game

    Why does he have to sell his Iowa game tix to hawkeye fans? There will be plenty of ISU fans out looking to buy from scalpers too. I don't think it's a bad idea at all and thought about it myself earlier. Atleast you are "doing your part" and buying a season ticket. I think there's more pressure on the Cyclone fans than Jamie Pollard with this whole ordeal. People cry and cry about how they want coaches gone, JP does a great job of that so now its our turn to do our part. I'm shocked at how much pub this whole ordeal has got. Maybe Drew Tate was right?

    Re: Want free season tickets? Buy them and sell the Iowa game

    i buy season tickets. Two seats each year. I do like the idea of this thread. but.....

    I would only sell one of the tickets and my minimum price is $5000. Half would go to JP the other half to me.

    I would make sure that I made that person regret even paying $10 for that ticket let alone $5K by sitting next to me while at the game.

    edit: And if no one stepped forward... all the better.

    Exclamation Re: Want free season tickets? Buy them and sell the Iowa game

    I believe it to be wishful thinking on your part. In 2005 the hawks were still riding high, not coming off a 6-7 season. Even so, a friend of mine here in Iowa City had four tickets (SE Corner) that he couldn't get rid of. He ended up selling them in the parking lot at JTS for $10 each and taking a huge loss!

    Note to those of you who don't know me: I'm a Cyclone fan who hates the hawks but happens to live in Iowa City!

    Re: Want free season tickets? Buy them and sell the Iowa game

    Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I don't see how there will be that much demand for tickets for two teams that, at least on paper, look mediocre at best. I have no doubt that the tickets could be resold, just not for the premium that would finance the rest of the season ticket package.
