    Nebraska Game should be Season Tickets Only

    In 2007, Jamie Pollard implemented a 'season-ticket only' policy for admittance into the ISU/Iowa game. Since Nebraska is no longer a conference bretheren, and is on the way out, single-game tickets should not be sold for their fans to buy. No need to cater to people who leave us.

    Re: Nebraska Game should be Season Tickets Only

    The only problem with this is can we fill the stadium without them?

    If not then we really only hurt ourselves because of the loss of $$$$$$$$ and thats the last thing that we need right now


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    Re: Nebraska Game should be Season Tickets Only

    We filled JTS in 2007 without Hawk fans. I remember Marty Tirrell saying there would be 30,000 people at the game. Whoops.

    Come, on we put 51,000 in for Army. I think we can handle Nebraska w/out Sker fans.

    We wouldn't have to. They'd buy them. But we can't make a conference game season ticket only. Then again, who would enforce it if there's not a conference left?

    Yup, and enough of the them will still buy tickets and come.

    Re: Nebraska Game should be Season Tickets Only

    How are we supposed to heckle them. Also, I want them there when we beat their *** for the second straight year.

    I thought about this. There is still two years left for us.

    What if we were to go about 8-5 this year and also make the tournament, then the next year, win the Big 12 North and make it to about the Sweet Sixteen. Maybe some regrets? My point is that there is still a lot of time for all these teams to make a lot of people look foolish. I am sure CU is already on it as they plan to still suck at everything next year. I cannot imagine the fallout if we were to somehow make BCS bowl in two years.

    Note: These are not predictions, just scenarios I find interesting.

    First, can't we just blow up the price? Those guys are too stupid to not buy them. Second, what are they going to do if we don't sell them tickets, kick us out?

    Didn't OSU do that last year with Oklahoma? That was a conference game. The only rule is that you have to give them their allotment.

    Why has this not been done already?

    I want this to happen very badly. Make a BCS bowl, win the Big 12 tournament, knock off a couple top 10 conference opponents. Like winning the last Big 8 tournament.

    Especially stomp the **** out of Nebraska if we get the chance in any sport.

    Yes, you are completely correct. Oklahoma State does this to OU every 2 years. Not many other schools do it, though.

    We did... it's $90, next most expensive game is $60. Hillside tix are $50, compared to $10 for KU and Missouri.
