    Am I the only one ****** about the game change?!?!

    Why would Pollard allow this 9 months before the game? I went ahead and booked my room on hotwire a month ago. I got the $8 insurance just in case I had to cancel, but it won't cover a recreation date change! So now unless hotwire will let me change dates we are out the money. I can't believe KState didn't realize this, or that Pollard allowed this, 9 months before, when I'm sure many people have already made plans...

    You had to book a room 10 months in advance? Were you concerned there was not going to be any rooms left in April?

    I just did it because other people were talking about doing it ON HERE! Besides, how often do our game dates get changed in the same calendar year?

    If I can get the same deal we got this year I'll book it today. Is anyone finding that $49 deal again?

    I am happy about it actually. Nicer weather perhaps. More likely I will make it.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I'm not sure the change is great either way, but it sounds like you jumped the gun on the hotel.

    Did KSU give a specific reason for the date change?

    That's not the point... I was making another reservation for the anniversary while I was logged on, so I just went ahead booked this one too.

    Should I have really thought, "Hmmm, maybe I shouldn't do this in case THIS GAME gets changed?"

    My bad. I guess I learned my lesson.

    So they can play Nebraska on Oct 7 for a Thursday night game. Personally I think the switch blows.

    KSU moved their game with Nebraska today also. My guess is ESPN picked it up moved it.

    I'm not a big fan of it either. Gave up a home game during our best weather month of the season (and therefore the nicest weather for tailgating\game, and also probably will get the most attendance) for what benefit to us?

    To be the good guys of the Big 12, I guess.
    Screw KSU and Nebraska.

    Yeah, cuz I'm sure the Big 12 office was going to say, "Well Iowa State, as long as you're ok with it, we're going to move this game." We are the bottom feeders in the Big 12. We have no say in anything.
