    Re: Iowa State vs. Creighton @ Wells Fargo Arena

    Wait for someone to come in here and ***** about why we aren't playing them at home because we're losing money for business in Ames, or having another game on our home floor to win.

    Good move on the part of our athletics department.

    Surprising.

    I didn't think Jamie would ever schedule another regular season game down at WFA

    Re: Iowa State vs. Creighton @ Wells Fargo Arena

    Exempt tournament? What does that mean?

    If this is just a one game contract, meaning we don't have to give Creighton a return game, this is not a bad move at all. Definitely favors ISU over Creighton!

    Big difference between Ohio State and Creighton for obvious reasons.

    Same here.

    I thought he said as much last season... and the turnout at WFA was less than stellar as I recall.

    Pardon the ignorance, but what is an "exempt tournament"?

    Bradley was the last game there. But I remember something not going right last time on the business side of this that Jamie didn't like.

    Either way, WFA sucks. Glad to see us playing Creighton again though!

    Re: Iowa State vs. Creighton @ Wells Fargo Arena

    Until Iowa State starts playing all there home games at home I will not attend these stupid things.
    I get the chicago Duke game. We need Chicago exposure and we get to play Duke.
    I have no idea why we are playing Creighton at WFA when we could whip them at home with home court advantage.
    One less game at Hilton is bad.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    We could play them on the moon for all I care. Winners win anywhere.

    No way Creighton plays at Hilton without us returning the favor and going to Omaha. If this is just a one"neutral" game series, its not a bad deal at all.
