    Creighton at Wells Fargo Arena

    On yesterday's Matt and Miller show, Matt told viewers that a deal was being made between Iowa and Creighton to play at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines. Also mentioned was that Creighton was looking to have similar matchups with other nearby teams at Wells Fargo in Des Moines. Would Iowa State ever be interested in playing Creighton at the Well? Everything tells me to stay away from this matchup but I am curious to see what other CF's think.

    Re: Creighton at Wells Fargo Arena

    I think it would be a great idea. I am all for scheduling teams we actually want to watch.

    Re: Creighton at Wells Fargo Arena

    As a neutral site game? That would be a terrible idea for ISU, but a great one for Creighton.

    Re: Creighton at Wells Fargo Arena

    I'm all for Iowa going to Wells Fargo and losing to Creighton, but I hope that Jamie Pollard is smart enough to not schedule Creighton at the Well. I would be okay playing the Hawks, Bulldogs, and Panthers at Wells Fargo in a round-robin tournament.

    Re: Creighton at Wells Fargo Arena

    Why wouldn't Iowa State want to play Creighton? About the only reason I see not to is because that would be yet another Missouri Valley team. Don't let records fool you, they are and have been just an OK team.

    Oh, and no more games at Wells Fargo! Talk about losing the atmosphere!

    Creighton would be a good team to add to the schedule, but not as a WFA-only game. Maybe if it was part of a home, away, home-neutral package.

    Re: Creighton at Wells Fargo Arena

    We should never play Creighton at Wells Fargo Arena. We got screwed a few years ago against Ohio State. If that game is at Hilton I am convinced we would have won. The only teams I want ISU playing at Wells Fargo are in-state teams like Iowa, Drake or UNI. Any other teams play at Hilton.

    I went to the Ohio State game at the Wells Fargo Arena. Very poorly run. Absolutely no reason to schedule an ISU game there as opposed to Hilton.

    Re: Creighton at Wells Fargo Arena

    I'd love to play Creighton, only at Hilton. WFA is a horrible college basketball atmosphere, unless its for the tourny.

    I agree. WFA would be a blast for the tournament, but for a Cyclone "home" game, I don't see the appeal.

    Not at WF. At Hilton yes.

    How so? This would be about as neutral as playing MSU in Auburn Hills. I think the primary problem with the atmosphere at the Well was the student turn out. Make sure the game is while school is in session and students have access to cheap tickets in a dedicated student section. We didn't have that in the past, and we all know that Hilton isn't exactly rocking without students either.

    Uh, no. Creighton would bring at least a couple thousand fans to a game like this. Maybe a lot more depending on how good their team is and whether there's a Husker football game the same weekend I could see 5000 Creighton fans at WFA if conditions are right.

    I could see 50/50. They fill the Qwest Center's 18,000 seats for home games. Upwards of 7-8,000 could be in Des Moines for that game if it was at the Well. I would expect 2,000 Jay fans if the game was at Hilton.

    There would be a lot of blue, that's for sure
