    I can live with that. I'm renewed and paid up. Just wondering where I'm going to end up sitting.

    About the best you can do. Lower the risk as much as possible but still keep the train moving.

    The 2021 mention is good to hear for those concerned.
    Good info.

    So are they letting students in? He doesn't mention that their season tickets are included in that. It'd be really ****** if they didn't. It's literally "college" football

    ISU: "We understand if you choose to not renew this year, you will have your same seats in 2021."

    Iowa: "Screw you fans who lost your job or wussies for not wanting to watch Iowa football amid a pandemic!"

    Once again. Jamie does the right thing.

    I appreciate that people like my parents in their 60’s and 70’s will not be punished if they can’t come to the games.

    Might as well let everyone in the stadium. It isn't as if there is something more safe about a crowd of 30,000 vs. a crowd of 60,000 (does this mean only 7,000 in Hilton, and half will be in the balcony?). And you'll have that many people in the parking lot in September anyway...

    odd because I would imagine at least a decent portion of season ticket holders are older and have some of the comorbidities making COVID riskier for them. Plus the economic upset/uncertainty for many right now. So it would seem like the decent thing to do to say hey we understand, hope to have you back next year. Also thought it was nice that if you did buy this year but decide you aren't comfortable attending come fall, you can get a refund or defer to 2021.

    Kind of worried those of us in the cheap seats might be bumped out by you big spenders - guess we'll see!

    And it's literally about how much money they make and is about the only reason they're trying to have a season.

    I wonder if there will be some sort of 'I am responsible for my own risk' verbiage on the ticket as a further CYA process.

    I guarantee you won't notice a difference at halftime with a crowd of 30,000.

    I feel like with a highly infectious disease spread easily through droplets with exponential growth there is a safety consideration between 30,000 and 60,000.

    I wonder if there will be any restrictions with tailgating. We typically have more people tailgating than that actually goes into the game as it is.
