    ugh, thanks for reminding me... I don't want to part with that $1400 so soon this year! Used to be nice that you could wait for the tax return to pay for tickets.

    email courtesey of ISU athletic department..

    February 16, 2007
    More Than Halfway To Record Season Ticket Sales
    AMES, Iowa - Six-and-a-half months in advance of Gene Chizik’s debut as head coach, Iowa State football fans are demonstrating their anticipation for the 2007 season with their actions at the box office. Cyclone fans have purchased more than half (17,207 as of Friday) of last year’s record-setting total of 30,728 season tickets.

    Most impressive, are the more than 1,200 new season ticket orders and the nearly 175 additional season tickets ordered by existing accounts.

    “The excitement for Cyclone football continues to grow since the hiring of Coach Chizik,” Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said. “Our fans are energized by his arrival, the introduction of his coaching staff and the recent announcement of our incoming recruits.”

    Fans, who renew or order new season tickets by the department’s Feb. 28 deadline, guarantee their 2006 seat location (if desired) and also qualify for the “Cyclone Sweepstakes” promotion. More than 30 prizes - including items like an autographed football from Chizik, lunch with Pollard, travel with the team to a road game and a table (eight seats) for the upcoming Cy’s House of Trivia evening - will be distributed through a random drawing for the individuals who met the renewal deadline.

    The Cyclones moved up the renewal / order timelines a few weeks this season after receiving countless inquiries about tickets and donations after Chizik’s hiring in November. Iowa State established a school record for season tickets sold last fall and believes it can surpass that total in 2007.

    “With Coach Chizik’s debut season and a home schedule as attractive as this one - featuring Iowa, Texas, Oklahoma, UNI, Colorado, Kansas State and Kent State - there is no question we can surpass our all-time best sales total for the second year in a row,” Pollard said. “I want to personally welcome the 1,200 new members of the Cyclone family who bought season tickets. The loyalty of ISU fans continues to impress.”

    Fans may order and or renew tickets online at cyclones.com or may call (515-294-1816) or stop by (1800 South Fourth Street) the Athletics Ticket Office. The department will once again track its sales progress online.

    It really sucks when you don't get a tax return.

    Don't we have to wait until the University lets us know when students can get tix? I seem to remember getting an email in the spring letting me know that students could order their season tickets... maybe I'm wrong though.

    Yeah, I never get my season tickets until the summer anyways. I'm sure that's the case with a lot of students..

    Random thought, but do you think that any of those 1,200 "new" season ticket holders might be Hawkeye fans?

    Re: Season Ticket sales "brisk"

    That's a very surprising number of season tickets sold so far. I really doubt that it includes students because (a.) I don't think most students buy them until when spring semester ends and (b.) I don't even know if they are available to students yet.

    I really hope that we can sell 40,000 season tickets this year. I think it is very doable.

    I"ll bet there are a couple, but it's in the minority. I have a feeling most of them are 'Clones who got told to "put up or shut up."

    Re: Season Ticket sales "brisk"

    I think thats a negative on students. Typically an email goes out announcing that student season tickets are available. I haven't seen anything of the sort so far. Given that, 17k is doing very well at this point.
