    If not, how early is everyone getting in line to get into Hilton?

    2 hours before tip off is our plan. Hopefully that's early enough.

    From my experience with the Kansas game last year I would say that is not early enough.

    I would say the latest you want to show up is 11 but don't expect great seats if you do that.

    Holy **** I doubt it is that bad. I showed up 2 hours before the doors opened for the Kansas game and got great seats.

    Agree with the others, don't think that's nearly enough time.

    I found my way into Hilton through the steam tunnels earlier today. Already in my seat.

    That's based on the idea this game won't be nearly as big as the Kansas game. The diehard fans are pumped, but a lot of students who have tickets probably don't even realize we've played a game yet. We aren't looking for great seats either, just looking to get in.

    I'd be pretty surprised if it's that bad.

    I showed up probably 90 minutes before doors opened for the KU, and ended up with fine seats (below the concrete barrier), but I was also in the area of the stairs that got pushed through the doors, and couldn't even get my card swiped if I wanted to.

    Might be worse. First ever game in Hilton for Vitale, Orr is returning and one the biggest official visits in Iowa State history. It's also against a top ten team.

    Either have someone come get them from you or throw them in the bushes and hope they're there when the game is over I guess.

    We'll have some guys that aren't going to the game (don't have tickets) pick it up around 2. We'll have it torn down by then. Currently have a giant tent with beds in it, a grill, and a generator powering a flat screen tv and PS3. Ames Trib was out earlier and interviewed a few of us.
