And I love how ISU tailgating is one gigantic extended, connected party.
i cant imagine what type of person it takes to think iowa city tailgating sucks.
is isu great? you bet. but it has an NFL feel to it, much like arrowhead. it lacks the on-campus feel of many schools. different strokes, i guess.
ISU tailgating is much better than Iowa. Period. No reasonable person would say otherwise and even Hawk fans admit tailgating has gone downhill in Iowa City lately
The student lots have the college atmosphere, but I suppose you're not wrong about the stadium parking lots.
Yes, it would be tough for a hok fan to imagine that. Go back to your closet.
Went in to Hy-Vee to get some beers for the TCU tailgate at 11:30 and a hawk fan was in there reading the ad, walked by him and he saw my ISU shirt and he said go hawks. Not sure he even knew they were playing.
Probably the kind of person that isn't concerned with how many food vendors are nearby.
When did they build a campus in Iowa City? Must be new :jimlad:
So you are comparing ISU to one of the top tailgating NFL stadiums? I'll take it.
While on campus school stadiums may be "historical" that also generally that means less spots to park, and less tailgating options. When that happens it becomes a business and takes away from the fun IMO. Texas is like that, Camp Randall is a little like that too.
I think most Iowa fans would agree that tailgating at ISU is pretty good. However, its the ISU fans that think since ISUs tailgating is good, Iowa's must suck. Truth is, they are just vastly different in terms of layout
I obviously don't speak for everyone, but I just don't have the money, even though I'm living in Iowa City again. I went to the Pitt game and should be buying a ticket to the Minnesota game this week. But the home schedule this year was always sad, and I simply can't justify spending 65+ bucks for seven games when most of them aren't even interesting.
This. ISU's layout is really well done and Iowa's sucks
Both offer great tailgating. Very different. Trice is one massive scene, Historic Kinnick's is all kinds of different parties happening in different types of places. Just depends on which twirls your beanie.
1. Iowa doesn't offer great tailgating anymore
2. This is why you're my favorite
A big ding against tailgating at Trice is that you have to go in and watch a football game eventually.
What are their ticket prices? IF they are asking for more than 50 bucks for the next game, that would explain a lot of it. They should be doing what we do - 2 for 39 bucks. At least sell the game out and get some hotdog/pop sales.
Oh cmon, undeniably better. Its different. You guys party in a field, we party in neighborhoods. Its different. The times ive heard ISU fans complain, its always the same- we had to walk a ways to get somewhere. Oh boo hoo, its not that bad. Ive tailgated plenty at ISU, and sometimes I had to walk a ways to get to where I was going.
Having said that, I will agree that Iowa's tailgating wasnt what it used to be, but its not that bad, and its not like ISU's is worlds better, either.
I'll agree with this.
Iowa has great wrestling and mediocre football while ISU has great basketball and fantastic tailgating. Both fan bases just need to accept it
#7 = "great"
#12 = "mediocre"
You're letting that hatemonster get the better of you again. Pill time.
Depends what you consider "worlds better". ISU is a solid 9.5 out of 10 on the tailgating scale where Iowa is probably near the 3 or 4 out of 10 range now
