    Letter to fans from Paul Rhoads and Pollard

    From Cyclones.com.


    December 6, 2009
    Dear Cyclone fans,

    Congratulations, on a job well done! Today’s announcement that the Iowa State football team has been selected to play in the 2009 Insight Bowl is largely due to the incredible passion and support of our fans. On behalf of our entire football team, we simply say ‘thank you’. Without your reputation for travelling to follow the Cyclones, we would not have been chosen to represent the Big 12 in this year’s game.

    The representatives from the Insight Bowl shared with us that they selected the Cyclones to play a Big Ten opponent on Dec. 31st at 5 p.m. CT in Tempe, Ariz., in large part because of the committee’s fond recollections of the thousands of Cyclones that followed the team to Arizona for the 2000 bowl game.

    The purpose of this letter is to seek your support in helping us confirm to the Insight Bowl representatives that they made the right choice in selecting Iowa State University for this year’s game. Please consider traveling to Tempe area later this month to enjoy the festivities that are being planned around the New Year’s Eve game.

    If you are unable to attend the bowl, please consider purchasing tickets to help us build on our already outstanding bowl reputation. The number of tickets that an institution sells strongly affects future bowl selections. Tickets are only $55 each and we will help distribute any unused tickets to local charities and/or members of our student body.

    Thanks again for your loyal support. We hope we can count on you to assist us in coloring the Insight Bowl cardinal and gold once again.

    Go Cyclones!
    Jamie Pollard
    Director of Athletics
    Paul Rhoads
    Head Football Coach

    Distraction strategy from basketball? Might work.

    "If you are unable to attend the bowl, please consider purchasing tickets to help us build on our already outstanding bowl reputation. "

    Very good point. I would love to go visit my folks and see ISU play this new years eve but I just don't think I can swing that, but I should be able to buy a ticket.

    So, I buy the ticket and donate it back to ISU to give to a student. Then I talk to JP and mention the word "apartment", then that makes my mileage and the ticket a tax deduction

    People and businesses need to buy thousands and thousands of tickets.

    Great point. Going or not ISU fans need to step up

    Congrats to JP, PR, the players and the fans!

    Each of those are responsible for being in a place to be picked 'up'.
