    Please buy tix from IA State ONLY

    There are numerous threads on here where people have stated that they have purchased tickets directly from the Insight because they want to know where their seats will be...
    We need to show up big time for this game and that's not just at the stadium on NYE. It also includes putting up an obscene number of tickets sold to IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY!!! Please, please, please buy all of your tickets from here on out from the University. If you absolutely have to know where you will be sitting before purchasing, let me tell you that you will be in the Cyclone section and that should be good...

    Re: Please buy tix from IA State ONLY

    I want people to buy from Iowa State as well but to be honest buying the tickets straight from Insight is cheaper. $212 dollars for tickets for 5 people from insight compared to $275 from Iowa State. It is only what 63 dollars cheaper but still that may be a reason.

    I don't get the huge difference in price. I have friends in Phoenix that are already getting $10 tickets in the lower level off second hand sources...

    Just bought my tickets through ISU. Would have preferred not to have a $30 bowl fee for two tickets. Oh well.

    When I ordered my two tickets they added a "Bowl Service Charge" of $30.

    Re: Please buy tix from IA State ONLY

    I understand the desire to have a good showing by ISU fans as far as tickets go, but I just don't see why it's such a big deal to buy the tickets through ISU. Insight Bowl officials have commented multiple times on how ISU fans bought 12,000 tickets through the university last time & another 8,000 directly from the bowl. If they can at least make an educated guess about fan affiliation for the tickets that they sell directly (which they seem able to do) is it really that big of a deal?

    It would be nice, when you buy directly from Insight, if you could put in who you are rooting for in the game.

    This is a really good idea. It would be so simple to do & make it even easier to track who is buying the tickets.

    Re: Please buy tix from IA State ONLY

    What I don't get is how they say only 20,000 were sold in '00. There were at least 30,000 there. I don't believe that many will show this time and it would be nice for ISU to get proper credit this time. I will order through ISU, but I am a long-time season ticket holder and $500 donor, so I get decent tickets if the KSU game was any indication, so I'm biased I guess.

    To everyone worried about what side they are sitting on. Directly from the Iowa State ticket office:

    This is beyond lame. If it's so important to Jamie that we buy tickets through ISU and not directly from the bowl, then he'd better figure out how to let people know what seats they have, and he'd better make them the same price as they are from the Insight Bowl. By the way, if you buy tickets from the University of Minnesota the seats are assigned - right now - and there is no $30 fee.

    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Yes. By all means, support Minnesota's future bowl hopes. They must have a good AD.
