    When was the last time you guys sold out a FB game that wasn't against Iowa/Nebraska or filled with thousands of UNI Panther fans?

    I'm half joking/half serious with this question, I'd actually like to know. I graduated from ISU in 06 and I don't recall too many sellouts.

    Thousands of UNI Panther fans??? I didn't know there were that many. I just figured it was a bunch of Hawk fans who went the wrong way on 380.

    Excellent question.

    And when we compare football attendance, do we consider how many people are in Kinnick Stadium at the start of home games against MAC teams, or how many are left at the end?

    Maybe they put it on a credit card. That goes over big in IC.

    My parents grew up in Iowa Falls, my aunts and uncles still live there as well as my grandparents. I don't know what it is about that town, but it's like my second home and I love it!

    Sounds good to me!

    Is Sioux City more of a Hawk or Husker town? I've always wondered.

    My parents have bought a lot of cars from Dale. I didn't not know this was the case. 5 million would be a great donation for us right now.

    You realize we are talking about BASKETBALL right? You know that thing where you shoot something the color of an orange into a basket? Also averaging 49k per home game for a 3-9 team aint bad. At least we don't boo our seniors on their last game ever (yes that was a low blow but so was your statement :wink:).

    Also...... ISU:15 EIU:13 (No touchdowns ftw?)

    Also also...... We beat you in basketball and won the Hy-Vee trophy.

    I'm just getting this all out there because I'm sure I'll be inclined to say it in the future.

    Toldeo, Kent State, and UNLV were all pretty packed. Same with Oklahoma this year.

    Oh the memories of Iowa falls....Went to ECC for a part of a semester. I have to tell you, it was hell. The townies against the college students is funny though, they hated us.

    "Pretty packed" does not = sold out. What is the max capacity at JT anyway? Has there ever been a definite number?

    Just ignore him, he is obviously nothing more then a troll. Says he graduated from ISU but his interest in ISU is nothing more then academic, which really explains why he lurks around on the Cyclone Academic(I mean Athletic) website all the time taking pot shots all the time. SoHawk is at least respectable even though he is a spinmiester, but DJK is only here to flame. Could candidate for ignore list.

    Go through all of my 17 posts on this site and try to find a flame. I've made a few jokes at ISU's expense but besides that I've been polite. And I'm not a troll, the only reason I started posting here is because this is the best ISU site on the net that doesn't cost money.

    Iowa averaged nearly 60K during a 1-10 season

    Iowa is 18-7 in the last 25 games

    Nobody cares about the Cy-Hawk series (oh yes, I went there).

    How else can I spin things in my favor? I'll think of something. :)

    1. I think it's well known that Hawks have a large fan base, wasn't arguing that. ???

    2. In the last year the Hawks are 0-1 :wink:

    3. You would if you won it. (Agree it isn't that big of a deal, but I think it should get more attention so other sports actually mean something to fans).

    4. Idk, but I like playing tug of war?

    There are a TON of Wisconsin sports fans in Minnesota, most annoying thing ever. Believe it has to do with Wisconsin not having nerely enough high paying jobs to keep their college grads in state, but still, they should stay where they belong. (Everyone one of them is also "that guy" that makes it their lifes ambition to let you know they're packer/badger fans).

    Be careful, Hawkeye Renewables has relocated their corporate offices to Ames. And Rastetter has donate $1M (I think) to ISU's Ag Entreprenuerism program.
