    Clone Zone for VB?

    I don't see clone zone listed on the schedule for home volleyball matches.
    Guessing because at Ames High, but I was hopeful we'd get a video stream still.

    Anyone in the know on this?

    Partly b/c of location, and partly b/c of equipment lost in the flooding.

    The Ames High gym does not provide a separate or static connection to ISU necessary for them to stream the video.

    that's a down right bummer. In this day and age I figured they could figure this out. first no Taylor. now no watching volleyball. ISU football better be good, or I might just become a Wisconsin fan (just kidding).

    Just read that season ticket announcement. 1500! That's awesome.

    I realize many, many people only got tickets because the seating issue forced their hand. But it's still quite impressive and a great accomplishment for the program.

    Would you like them to apologize for being flooded out of the regular arena?

    "bummer" <> demanding apology.

    In the grand scheme of things, having a video feed isn't exactly priority 1 right now for anybody involved with VB. There are other things to worry about, and "I figured they could figure this out" comes off as selfish.

    Depending on the cost, I don't know if ISU could have installed the exclusive connection or not. I know Ames High was not willing to foot the bill.
    I also wish we could get radio play-by-play of our matches. I know CJL has campaigned for this. We're a major power in NCAA volleyball now - even Florida had play-bu-play for their fans at Omaha...

    Wow! A guy in Wisconsin wants to be able to watch the volleyball team! How dare he?

    4 years ago 95% of ISU fans were vaguely aware we HAD a volleyball team.

    I agree with him... I'd think they could possibly figure it out. And I really doubt "the volleyball team" worries about CloneZone in any capacity. Sounds like the video production team might not have the most creative thinkers around. How about that?

    "Anybody involved with VB" includes more than just the team itself.

    Since you seem to be the most creative thinker, how exactly would you propose a live video stream with no cameras and no dedicated ethernet line?

    Never said I could, or was. I'm also not the guy ripping him for being disappointed.

    But since you ask... how are they airing the soccer games? Being done on iPhones? Internet connection can be put together inside a week. Not exactly an insurmountable task. Is it feasible or worthwhile? I have no idea and personally don't care - doesn't impact me.

    So you know the details, what is priority one for those "associated with volleyball" but "not the team itself". Particulary from a video production standpoint? Season ticket holder curious to know.

    They aren't. Never have.

    Weird... on the schedule.

    Live Events - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    Maybe that's the priority? Figuring out what they're doing?
