    Wow, you know you're struggling to fill seats when a Division I school in a big conference has to resort to Groupon.

    Im pretty sure ISU used it last year... http://www.groupon.com/deals/iowa-state-athletics-dept

    Also, I find it completely hilarious that only 5 have been bought.

    I don't think we're in a position to throw stones with some of the deals we've put together.

    Yep, and it might not be a bad idea for us to do something like this for the Okie State game.

    True. Regardless, it's a shame to see empty seats in ANY college FB game. Did you see Boston College last night? Embarrassing.

    I hope we can at least hang close with OSU, I hate the idea of JTS on ESPN with empty sections.

    Don't you guys remember the Michigan State vs. Iowa basketball game at Carver a couple years ago on ESPN?
    There were going to be a ton of empty seats so the AD was giving away free tickets to students, and the students didn't seem to care anyway, so the AD had to also give them free pizza.
    Now that was funny.

    It didn't look as bad as the stands in the 3rd and 4th quarter of the ISU game at Tech.

    Don't you think they would at least post it on "The Ladders"? It's not like that program is the bottom of the barrel right now.... Ummm... Okay... maybe "Monster" it is.

    Yeah... you only post an opening on "The Ladders" if you are looking for a qualified candidate. Seeing that Kansas hired Turner Gill should tell you they are simply looking for any guy off of the street.

    Both got it! Monster was very intentionally chosen.

    I bet Iowa will try this option for basketball season tickets.

    Yeah, and there are a lot of places where if you look hard there are a lot of empty seats. ACC games, Big East games. Lot of schools struggling to draw, even some successful ones.
