    My wife went to purchase a bottle of water at the Iowa game and said that it was $5 a bottle? :shocked: Any truth to this? I thought that it was $4 when I looked and I considered that highway robbery!!! I understand that stadium improvements cost money but that's crazy! (Pollard's view on the poor economy must have changed). My wife decided to stand in the long water fountain line like most people.

    Next year they're implementing coin activated drinking fountains, no more free rides.

    They were $4 for the regular size bottles and $5 for the liters(?) at the Pizza Hut window. I spent $20 on water that game. Almost as much as my water bill for the month!

    Maybe they are trying to cut down on the use of water bottles like Nick Fanthrope thought we should do or make money?

    They are even going to charge you a dollar per single sheet of toilet paper.

    When I was there (can't speak directly to this year) there was the $3 20oz bottle and the $4 1 Liter bottle. I assume it's the same thing just different prices

    Pay the $5, you get more bang for your buck. Or get the smaller one and keep refilling it at the water fountain

    Unfortunately that's the norm. I paid $4 for a bottle of water at Kauffman Stadium last spring. :no:

    Here's a tip -- bring your own 20 oz. (unopened) water into the stadium. Won't get grief from the bag checkers as long as the seal is still in tact. (But I think only 1 per person)

    She pocketed the dollar, I would begin divorce proceedings immediately to try to recoup it.

    Pollard probably added **** to it so that you are forced to buy bottled water and help the "mission"

    I have no problem with what they charge for bottled water. However:

    Don't run out of it during game day.
    :realmad::realmad::realmad:

    It is absurd that bottled water is sold out at a FB game..... ABSURD!

    -keep.

    They sell bottled water at football games? Could have fooled me because I couldn't find anyone to sell me some...

    SO true...I hear so much about Jamie and his financial expertise, but if he would monitor Centerplate concessions a little more closely, he would see that ISU is getting screwed.
    Product is so inadequately stocked at both football and basketball games. Whatever percentage of sales ISU gets, there's tons on $$$ left on the table because of Centerplate being out of product that fans want to purchase...
