    What FBS teams have byes on 11/2?

    I assume we’ll look to replace the second bye week. The second bye is awfully valuable now that we can set our watches to losing a September game every year.

    Field turf. I really like the grass field, but maybe it's time.

    NWS is calling for on and off thunderstorms in Ames literally all of tomorrow. I think this ends up like SDSU.

    Won’t stop lightning, which is the main issue

    I think we play tomorrow. It will storm early and then again late, but we will have a window to get the game in.

    Can't we just put a retractable roof on JTS? Jamie Pollard fails again.

    Storms will be very isolated throughout the day. Of course, that probably just means the isolated patches will all be within 8 miles of Ames...

    Just go all out. The Alamodome was nice, those plans should still be around, right?

    I’m assuming we’ll all sit out in the rain for 6 hours before they cancel the game.

    Nice to see that CF’s Chicken Little Syndrome is still functioning flawlessly.

    Come on, this time it’s validated. We’ve had 4 weather delays in the last 2 years. Last week it wasn’t even supposed to start until night.

    Fair enough, the possibility of a delay is validated. And remind me again, how many games have been canceled due to weather in the history of Cyclone football?

    Darn it all...what happened to the upper 60s, sunny, light breeze fall games?

    But seriously, if there is a hint of lightening that place is emptying.

    Fall doesn’t start until Monday though, Mother Nature found a loophole.

    1. And tell me how many delays in the history of Iowa state football. I’ll tell you—-4. 2 last week, 1 last year that ended up cancelled, and I think 1 before the Kansas game started 2 years ago. That’s a bad, bad trend.
