    Insight Bowl loves Iowa State's approach

    I talked with an Insight Bowl rep today about the whole "buy a ticket even if you can't go" ordeal.

    Here's what the rep said.

    Hmm... The Insight Bowl rep likes a strategy promoting buying more tickets? Who woulda thought?

    Will these guys be on Matt and Miller today. I would love to hear Matt telling him how stupid he is for liking such an idea.

    Whoa Whoa. I never went after the bowl game. I just said I didn't like Iowa's State approach cause they got a bowl bid over a team with 2 more wins and a head-to-head win cause of $$

    In the end, though, it really doesn't matter at all what Matt thinks.

    I can't BELIEVE some of you listen to those idiots on the radio. You are probably also the same people that continue to tell us how bad the register is (and it is) yet like moths to a flame can't stop reading it. Stop listening and they will go away.

    Yes, obviously our approach of "get picked before the guy who is better than us" is incredibly stupid.

    I'm sorry, but I'm not seeing the logic in this statement. We can agree that ISU was chosen over Mizzou because of $$$. But where you lose me is when you start attacking ISU's AD for doing everything he can to hold up his end of the bargain by selling as many tickets as possible.

    I've already heard several people state that they're taking advantage of the charity angle. Those are tickets sold that otherwise wouldn't have been sold, AND they're going to a good cause. Where's the controversy?

    I think the controversy comes into play when a radio host doesn't have any good material and doesn't feel like doing the leg work. Instead of researching something worth talking about, we just blow some non-story out of proportion to get some calls.

    Give me a break. Here's to more fabricated controversy, lame takes, and nervous laughter...

    Re: Insight Bowl loves Iowa State's approach

    They are just acting like they don't like the idea to get people mad and call in. Seriously, there is no remotely rational or intelligent reason they should be against it.

    Its good for ISU, good for the bowl, and good for charity and some lucky fans. Obviously anyone who would do that has the money to and isn't going to bankrupt themselves buying a ticker for charity. Its a win-win move.

    Maraco said. “For us, we were like ‘wow, somebody gets it.’ That is great. There are so many people who can’t go to a game and who are less fortunate. If people from Iowa can’t get to Phoenix, what a better way to support the program but at the same time, donate to charity. It is phenomenal.”

    Re: Insight Bowl loves Iowa State's approach

    Truth is ISU has no business being in this bowl, but WE the fans put the team over the edge. Because WE the fans will do anything to see ISU succeed. You tell me one program that has gone through what we have and still maintained a fan base loyal enough to pull this off.

    Some will ignore this fact and dwell on the way we go about it. Just like the team found a way to 6 wins, we found a way to get them into the best bowl possible.

    Re: Insight Bowl loves Iowa State's approach

    Is ISU also giving the kids who get these tickets through a charity an ISU t-shirt to wear to the game?

    JP just said on Channel 5 that ISU has sold over 6,500 tickets.
