    Re: ISU/NDSU game on mediacom

    My wife and I have recently moved to Iowa City (not by choice, but for grad school). Does anyone know if the Mediacom coverage of the game will extent to this part of the state (I do get my cable through Mediacom...sometimes regretably.)

    If you have Mediacom, you get the connections/public access channel. You just have to find which one it is. For some reason I remember someone saying it was channel 3 in Eastern Iowa.

    Pollard has said that this move to Thursday wasn't about TV but about student attendance. With the first game usually falling on Labor Day weekend, they were having issues with people traveling, and especially students being out of town.

    I'm not sure there is night of the week out there that would get us good TV coverage for a Big 12 team coming off a 2-10 playing a .500ish 1-AA team.

    Re: ISU/NDSU game on mediacom

    I'm all about generating as much TV exposure as possible for Cyclone athletics, but I sure hope this doesn't negatively impact attendance at the first game. I want the game atmosphere to be electric for Coach Rhoads and the players!

    I think there is only one Mediacom Connections Channel in the State of Iowa. I can recall seeing Davenport Central vs. West bball games, Fulton, IL games, along with ISU and Central Iowa HS games.

    well, it is labor day weekend and those with travel plans now do not have to change them. I'm glad for the thursday night game.

    Re: ISU/NDSU game on mediacom

    If you want to have good attendance than have the damn game on Saturday like 95% of teams do. Do their students all leave and affect attendance as well? Its embarrassing to even have that be as an arguement.

    I hate to say it but this probably turned me to staying home and I already have two tickets. Taking a vacation day (which I'm low on) then turning around that night to drive 2 hours so I can get up at 6:00 am and go to work sounds like great fun.

    Freaking Thursday games...

    If you actually look at the numbers though, the change has been pretty negligible (slightly negative actually, from what i remember) in terms of attendance. A few more students, a few less donors and regular season ticket holders (who paid, at minimum, 3x more than the students did, just for their tickets).

    Agreed. We've gotta be the only ones ive heard with this excuse. And, if i remember correctly, the first time i did it the excuse WAS the tv.. with the labor day thing being a secondary reason.
