    Survey of Football fans - prefer afternoon starts

    The athletic department did an online survey of ticket holders and linked are the results. We prefer the Thursday night start to the season but an overwhelming number prefers the afternoon starts for the rest of the year, when given the choice of 11:30 (16%) afternoon (66%) or 6:00 (18%)

    WTF????

    I love 6:00 pm games, that is when Iowa State is at its BEST.

    Re: Survey of Football fans - prefer afternoon starts

    The dilemma on a 6 p.m. start time is that while it allows plenty of time for those who live a few hours away to get to the game, it makes it late when they get home.

    And an early start means they have to get up way early to get to Ames.

    A 1:30 or 2 starting time is a good compromise IMO.

    However, I live close to Ames and I really don't care what time kick off is. So I will let other people make their case for the starting time they prefer.

    Re: Survey of Football fans - prefer afternoon starts

    I found it interesting that more people prefer the 11:30 start time to the 6:00 start time when those are the only two choices.

    Also 4% could not remember getting an e-mail from the athletics department, even though the were responding to an e-mail from the athletics department!?!

    The 6 pm start is tough when you have a 2 hours drive home after a day of 'socializing'.

    Re: Survey of Football fans - prefer afternoon starts

    I prefer 11:30 to 6pm. Still get to the stadium by 7am and have a good 4hrs to tailgate, maybe 1 or 2 afterwards and then have the evening open to catch other games or make plans with friends.

    1pm is the perfect time, but there's no chance for TV at that time.

    Re: Survey of Football fans - prefer afternoon starts

    The Thursday night being most popular surprises me just a bit.

    The afternoon start surprises me quite a bit, actually. Although if I were answering, just saying one or another doesn't quite capture my feelings. I enjoy the night games in Sept, maybe even early October. But no way I want that come colder weather.

    I only skimmed the results. Not sure if that type of comment could be captured in there.

    Noticed they lumped the video board experience into a single result. Judging from this board, they should've broken out sound and video.

    Well, it looks like the results of this survey can put to rest the endless arguments we have on this board about the Thursday night season opener. 63% support is pretty good support.

    Also, mad props to the band for smacking down the spirit squad with a 53% to 31% advantage in the "excellent" category!

    Ugh, 11:30 games suck. It gives you no time to recover from Friday night.

    I want to see the internals on what groups supported which. Students probably went overwhelmingly for the thursday, but id like to see what regular season ticket holders voted. Fact is, you still have about 40% that voted for saturday, even with that possibly skewing the results, and that 40% probably pays a much larger portion of the bills.

    plus how did over 50% of those that replied not see the paul rhoads video? if they answered no to seeing that video they should not be allowed to vote on anything else ever cyclone related.
