    This is getting a bit ridiculous

    http://iowa.rivals.com/forum.asp?sid=940&fid=804

    I counted 8 threads on HR all about the ISU-Iowa ticket situation. All of them sound something like this, "ISU sucks. I'm not paying for there stuff. huh, yeah, umm, yeah .... Go hawks! Not in Kinnick!"

    I really can't understand all of their ********. Its been like this for well over a month too. For ****** sake get over it. To make matters worse we have the register and Jon Miller adding fuel to fire. If this continues until the game, then its going to be a long off-season.

    There are about the same number of threads here on CF.

    Ticketgate continues...

    Re: This is getting a bit ridiculous

    They are scared, that ADJP is going to keep all the attention on ISU in the state. And they are starting to lose their grip on things.
    So they do what they do best spew random meaningless crap about anything they can.

    Re: This is getting a bit ridiculous

    Uh uh uh the ISU-Iowa game is ISU's Super Bowl and it does not mean anything to Iowa. Umm this looks like proof to me that this game means THE SAME to both sides. It is a BIG GAME for both teams, just quit denying it IOWA, when you lose it is not a big game but when you win (like last year) you storm the field.

    I completely agree. Why do they want to watch this game in the first place?

    I guess I've learned never to question the reasoning abilities of most hawk fans anymore (i.e. "If we beat Ohio State, then Michigan, we have a decent shot at the National Championship!")

    Re: This is getting a bit ridiculous

    I think it's all quite interesting. Never in my memory has one game gotten so much attention from everyone in the state. Fans, media - you name it. And we're still over 6 months away from playing the thing!

    Plus, all this stuff has been about everything but the actual game - ya know - what the 22 guys are doing on the field play after play. That's the crazy part.

    It's all about getting tickets, how much they cost, watching the game elsewhere, will the game be sold out, will the series continue, who "needs" who more, etc.

    Fascinating.

    Re: This is getting a bit ridiculous

    God, their arrogance is intolerable. Going off about "pathetic clown fans." Those band-wagonning pieces of mutt excrement don't know a GD think about supporting a team through thick and thin. Most of those a$$holes are hawk fans simply because they beat us 83-98. THATS IT! Most of them didn't' go to Iowa, and thus simply cheer for them to be like the other sheep. They are so oblivious to reality. Example: this weekend a Hawk fan informed me that ISU is NOT their rival, and that their real rivals were Michigan and Ohio State. I told him to talk to a Buckeye fan about that one. Anyways, I guess there really isn't much point to this post besides the fact that I hate the Hawkeyes, and 90% of their fans, and they once again irritated the hell out of me with their blind arrogance. Grrrr

    "ISU is NOT their rival, and that their real rivals were Michigan and Ohio State."

    Yup, I love that one. A few years ago (when Iowa had their brief run of success), I enjoyed going over to the Hawkeye pages. Michigan and Ohio State dudes would get on there and give Iowa fans the same "little brother" treatment they like to heap on us. It would drive the Hawk faithful frigg'in crazy. I loved it!!

    I think it is a good move on ADJP, from the sounds of things iowa is not going to have a very good showing at the game, and lets face it they need all the help they can get when they at ISU.

    Re: This is getting a bit ridiculous

    The whole ticketgate issue comes down to one thing- control.

    JP and ISU are in control on this one and Iowa is standing on the sidelines wanting to say 'we're going to take our ball and go home".

    Iowa fans can not stand the thought of Iowa State calling the shots on anything, especially football.

    They'll b$tch, but will buy, and I really don't care how many Hawk fans go to watch the game in an empty stadium.

    ISU 31 Iowa 3


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.

    And their two rivals are dropping off their schedule for two years. So who will their rival be for the year? ISU or Illinois?

    I agree that control plays into this for Iowa fans. The biggest issue I have with the current contract is the % of tickets money that goes to each road school. Iowa State receives about $200,000 more from Iowa when the game is in Iowa City than Iowa receives when the game is in Ames. I would like to see the amount of money fixed.

    Wisky and Penn St, b/c they're the only one that come close to their atmosphere, but Penn St is on shaky ground b/c they've not been as dominant lately

    Texas fans didn't acknowledge them. So what did they do, they went to the Texas board. When the UT fans told them exactly where they ranked in the pecking order of college football programs, they had the nerve to get upset.

    I must have read a dozen times, the UT people telling the Hawk fans that they have no REAL tradition, which is true. That they had a couple good years, but that the Big Ten is usually pretty bad, which is why we all have to hear how good they are, until the post season, then they pretty much don't say anything. The Michigan, and Ohio State people would come on and apologize for the Hawk fans being jerks, and that they do have the worst reputation in the Big Ten as a fanbase.

    I just think it's hilarious when they accuse Pollard for being "classless" and raising the prices. Class has nothing to do with it, it's all about cash, and the sooner they realize that the better.
