    REally? I was just checking the weather it looked like mid 50's, cloudy w/ only a 10-20% chance of rain...We'll bring rain gear just in case though...

    Oh yeah, 10 to 20% chance means count on torrential rain lightening up here. See our track record.

    4/4 with precipitation at home games so far this year. Hopefully this is the week to break the streak!

    Just a heads up, it sounds like Vet Med may be closed to the public

    I'm sitting in SECT 7 Row 4...I did like ZERO research when buying tickets...it's safe to assume I'll be surrounded by Cyclone fans correct...

    That's a faculty and staff section I believe. I would hope they would be Cyclone fans

    Funny because I got stuck in the visitor's section this game. Don't know how many you'll bring but I hope they're as nice to us as they were in Stillwater last year.

    Just wanted to say we had a great time!

    We got a to go order from Hickory Park and ended up in I think..G4 or G5 parking? It didn't seem to be quite the party that some of the other lots were but we still had a great time. Hickory Park is good BBQ...not the best but I enjoyed it.

    We sat right behind the ISU bench during the game...it was a bit awkward..I was trying not to be "that guy" and respectfully cheer without being an AHole. Nobody gave me a hard time. After the game two people shook my hand and thanked me for coming. That's super classy and I appreciated it.

    After the game we went to the Great Plains Pizza Place...Long wait but good pizza!

    Sunday AM we had Breakfast at Provisions Lot F..again long wait but good food!

    The only negative thing I have to say is about the Radisson...we won't be staying there again.

    At any rate, we had a great time and everyone was very nice to us.

    Thank you all for your hospitality and wealth of info on the board!

    Good Luck the rest of the year!

    Welcome. However, we also hope you can't wait to get out of here on Saturday night! ;)

    Seriously, how do you see the game shaping up? And what are your tailgate plans?

    What team shows up from Austin?! We opened up as 7point dogs, which was surprising. The line has moved towards Texas.

    Herman knows how to beat y’all, I hope we don’t shite the bed.

    He'll be on the roam for some of the old strange he was after while coaching here.

    Getting my one game a year in. Was hoping a little more would be on the line, but still excited to be back in Ames.

    I have read we are ok brining blankets into the stadium, which I don’t think we will since the weather will be pretty decent.

    I have also seen where you can’t bring seat cushions..... is that accurate? Seems odd.

    Asking this again... with decent fall weather, will the tailgate scene be pretty good? Should we feel comfortable going up to someone’s tailgate and “crashing” it? We will offer the hosts gifts of course

    with a 230 start time, what time does the tailgate get going that morning?

    lots of questions thrown y’all way I know.

    They have seat cushions available to rent in the stadium for single games. I think they are $10. Seat cushions can be brought in if they dont have a back rest, are not more than 16 inches wide, and they can not have a zipper. I assume this last one is to make it tougher to bring stuff in you are not supposed to.

    Tailgating scene is always good. Donor lots will open at 7 and public lots will open at 9:30. The RV lots open friday. Most people wouldn't mind you hanging out at their tailgate, as long as you are not a douche.
