    Now if only helping with opening would mean that we get a percentage of the money exchanged that day.

    Or NASDAQ field at Jack Trice Stadium. I'll send JP an email right now to get him working on that.

    Wow, I thought you were going to announce the CF IPO and you had JP and CPR lined up to ring the opening bell!

    Maybe next year

    That would be great, because then, while I'll still be a student, I'll hopefully be a little bit less poor as a grad student then I am now as an undergrad.

    Why not just Insight Field at Jack Trice Stadium? They seem to be in love with us.

    How does ringing a bell at a stock exchange relate to PR for the Insight Bowl? I appreciate the fact that they are trying to stir up support, but I don't quite see how this would do it.

    It appears to make no sense but for whatever reason it is an Insight Bowl tradition:

    Oklahoma State/Indiana 2007:
    Insight Enterprises, Inc. [NSIT] - 12/12/2007

    Minnesota/Texas Tech 2006:
    Video Library - wcco.com

    Arizona State/Rutgers 2005:
    Press Release: Insight Bowl Chairman to Ring the NASDAQ Stock Market Opening Bell; Upcoming Insight Bowl Matchup Between Arizona State University and Rutgers University. - Business Wire | HighBeam Research: Online Press Releases


    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.
