    Kevin Jackson E-mail?

    Anyone else get it?

    Apparently they want to go without the curtain for the Iowa dual. I'm not thrilled about it if the Hawk fans are going to outnumber us.

    It is money in the Athletic Dept's pockets. If they want to come and be disappointed then let them.

    How are they going to do season ticket holders?

    I think coach Jackson will do his best to make that happen.

    Re: Kevin Jackson E-mail?

    Saw the message and read it this morning. They're moving the season tickets holders to the center for that one meet. Appears that the whole lower level is supposed to be season ticket holders, students, and reserved seating. Details to come with season ticket renewal letters, but I get the impression that the other lower level tickets will be offered first to season ticket holders and Cyclone Club members.

    Don't know if this link to the seating chart will work, but we'll give it a shot.

    Re: Kevin Jackson E-mail?

    Why dont they put certain things in place so that Iowa fans cant get that many tix? Why not sell $1 tix to all NCC members for that one meet? I know tix arent that expensive anyway, but why not bring some new fans into the rivalry and show em that this means just as much if not more than the football or bball matchups?

    Really? Why? I've been to meets with and without and I think the curtain is a great idea. It just makes for so much better of an atmosphere with the size crowds we currently draw. I realize the Iowa meet will be close to a sellout of the entire arena but unfortunately I think it will practically be a neutral site with about a 60-40 crowd split.

    Re: Kevin Jackson E-mail?

    They need to get a big time ticket selling campaign out there. If I were them I would start selling individual tickets for this to NCC members during football season. Also, another idea is try to get this back to the same weekend as the basketball game and do some kind of package deal for the basketball and wrestling together.

    The curtain is great for the other duals. No doubt about it.

    Wrestling is struggling and the Iowa/ISU dual is the signature regular season dual in the sport. Limiting fan access to it couldn't possibly be more short sighted.

    What we did two years ago made me sick to my stomach. I was totally embarrassed. For lack of a better term, we ****** all over the sport. IMHO, of course.

    And being a season ticket holder I appreciated that they didn't move the mat to the middle of the arena and screw me over.
