    The Home Game that was sent packing ?

    Not only the area businesses that lost out on a home game payout... hotels, stores, restaurants.... I'm starting to question the advantages of this relocation of OUR home game in a city with the same first name as our opponent. Thinking right now we should be in front of 55,000 our OUR FANS in Jack Trice... with a true HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE.

    This is such a pivotal game and will question this trip.

    Go State.

    Current score..... down 7 0-7

    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    who cares about the business. They are not the ones giving their money to the program. Only leeching off the fans $$$. Ames loves ISU's kids/fans money but hates the students there. Perfect scenario in my opinion.

    OK, ISU makes appr. $1M per home game. They are getting something like $1.8 for these two, so it's a gain of $800k. I think that the city of Ames really needs to act like they appreciate ISU a little more. They've seemingly battled with the university for years.

    Wow we ***** about not getting publicity/attention/respect, and now we are complaining about playing in a PROFESSIONAL stadium that is a very manageable commute for ISU fans. I never knew playing in a professional stadium with TV coverage was something to ***** about.

    TV said 60k. Might be an exaggeration, but it more than 35.

    No way there is 60k. Maybe 40k.

    lol, no kidding the stadium holds just under 80k. unless a bunch of people bought tickets and decided not to show. I'd say at best there are 35,000 there. Now way that place is over half full. (notice I say half full, I"m that type of guy,)

    Re: The Home Game that was sent packing ?

    If some called this our bowl game... it probably was... had this game been played in Jack Trice.... I strongly believe we are 4-1 and two games away from a real bowl game.... still not a fan of this series again being played in a city that shares the first name of the team we agreed to play.

    Go State
