    Would you go to the games without tailgating and a good FB team?

    Curious to find out what people think. If I knew how to add a poll I would.

    Yes. I go for game. If I happen to get there early enough, I'll tailgate

    Of course I would give up tailgating if ISU became a good football team in exchange.

    Um, yes. I don't pay for season tickets to tailgate. Sadly the tailgating was the best thing about Saturday but tailgating should be the icing on the cake of a good football game, not the whole cake.

    Re: Would you go to the games without tailgating and a good FB team?

    Um, what kind of a question is this? I think everyone would give up tailgating for a good football team. And if they don't, they aren't a football fan.

    I'm one of those strange folks who cares passionately about the game, and doesn't care much for the tailgating. I'm too nervous to really enjoy socializing before the game. Yes, my wife thinks I need therapy.

    I think you guys are misunderstanding his question. He is saying would you still attend games if there was no tailgating and the team still sucked?

    Read the original post again. The question is without tailgating, and even without a good fb team, would you still go to the games?

    I think the answer of the people on here is Yes we'd all still go. Clearly, the casual fan would not.

    Gone to many, many games without a good football team.

    Would go to 1 of 2 a year without a tailgate, but the tailgate is key!

    Tailgating really has no impact on my decision to go to ISU games.
    If on a particular Saturday I have to choose a neutral game to, I might consider one with a good tailgating atmosphere.

    We love to tailgate, but have attended many years of ISU football without tailgating and without a really good team.

    I love to tailgate, but I go to games because I love Iowa State athletics more.
