    Forced to spend $10,000 on ISU stuff

    If you were given $10,000 and you were forced to spend it on ISU stuff (anything - memorabilia, apparel, tickets, donation to Athletic Department, etc.) within one year what would you buy?

    Season football and MBB tickets, some apparel, and then donate the rest.

    You got me within one year. I would have said tuition but my oldest daughter is only nine.

    I could probably do quite a bit of damage in apparel. Tickets and transportation to Ames (charter?) for as much as possible.

    I know JTS suites are intended for a full season, but does anyone know if you can get one for just a game? I'd think $10,000 could land a suite for the NU game, with enough left over for a couple kegs and a high-powered paintball gun with a scope. The windows open in the suites, right?

    A diamond studded Cyclone enema bag. I would use the remaining $435 for an official Cyclone jock strap for the weekends.

    He said within one year, not within one year starting today. :) I say pick whatever year you want.

    Isn't there some sort of ISU-themed Tundra North of Jacobson during football season? I would buy that and get a conversion kit to make it into a Ford.

    That Tundra will run you about 4 times what you will have though.

    With the strength of the dollar and weak yen, with the conversion rate I have about 3k left by my calcualtions.

    First thing I'd buy- the piece of the Hilton floor that is in my office. Our owner bought it at a charity golf outing during an auction- cut out of the center of the lane after the flood of '93, signed by Fred Hoiberg and Johnny Orr. Very, very cool, and one day, it will be mine.
