    What was our payoff for moving our game to KC? $3MM?

    But ours is a two year deal, so we also lose an "away" game next season. Plus, KC is relatively close and has many Cyclone fans.

    One small difference: at last report, we've sold about 11,500 tickets to the KSU game.
    Penn State fans will buy up 84,000 - and the rest of Indiana's unsold 7,000...

    Arrowhead getting a bargain.

    I think it was actually $2M to both ISU & KSU for both years. someone correct me if this is wrong.

    I hate the Kansas City game. Just one less game we get to play in Ames. I love going to Ames for football games. I am not a big Kansas city guy.

    Re: Indiana Sells Home Football Game for $3 Mil.

    How much more do we get by playing in Arrowhead and playing in Jack Trice?

    (How much money do we usually make for one home game?)

    That is the real question. If the KC deal is such a great deal (as is indicated by the above commentary, why not jut move all of our games to Arrowhead?)

    Hats off to the Indiana AD for doing what he has to to increase revenue. If your own fans won't pay to see you............ go find some that will.
