    kinda gives an idea of the wierd wind patterns at ground level. no snow on the edges has all acumulated in the middle.

    Yeah, and to be honest if you are a student you already are in one of the the best places to be INVOLVED in the game and with the crowd. Nothing beats being out in the open and taking it ALL in. Dude you got the world by the tail. Make it happen.

    Yeah, it really shows a wind pattern coming in from the sides and meeting in the middle. Simular to a venturi pattern, Although I really don't see how it would be restricted other than the wind comming back together and slowing down. ??? Any geeks in the house can explain further. ;)

    This view is good also. Simply put the ISU marching band kicks major ***. Funny, I'm so not a band type of guy but I honestly enjoy their perfonmances.

    so wait...when we miss a field goal its even worse than expected because the wind is pushing the ball towards the center of the goal posts from both sides.

    These seats definitely give a fantastic view of the stadium. It's really a unique look at the football field that I'll miss next year. Not to mention having full field access is pretty sweet too...here's a few of the photos I've snapped over the years.

    I wouldn't. Seems to me that every time I look into the athletic building, the people inside are standing around, not paying attention to the game. Would be very distracting.

    I like how the snow on the field has started to take the shape of the logo with an I.

    It is an awesome view & I'd also love to bring the fam to a game there; however, I'm not sure the "I" pattern of snow on the field is uniform enough to be just wind patterns. It almost looks like the field was swept or cleared to the center of the field, doesn't it?

    This is my vote...

    or...

    The dome on our stadium collapsed right in the center of the field letting all the snow fall in.

    Looks like we need to have an engineering student do a study on the actual wind patterns in JTS. What is Kirby studying?
